The first build of version 0.99 (password betainspace688) is on Steam and GoG now and it’s a BIG one.
There are a lot of changes under the hood which will need ample time for testing between now and launch, so we’re allowing people to grab this beta well ahead of the 1st March v1.0 launch date in case there are any major issues.
We’ve made two additional posts to discuss the two biggest new features - mods and LAN play.
Firstly, a few notes about the build:
In theory, most of the new additions will be invisible to the player, and are just behind-the-scenes things which have been altered to make way for mods and multi. You can expect new builds every so often as we go on, based on our findings internally and whatever bug reports we get. That said, please keep in mind that both major new features are pretty big, and that if you want to try this beta build, note that we CAN’T guarantee that there won’t be any issues with existing saves.
If you’re interested in either feature, check out the other threads and let us know what you think!
