📆 Release: Q2 / 2020


The schedule was moved to the second quarter of 2020 – as we recognize a lot of community requests and want to make sure everything is right for 1.0! This is going to be only a part of the full vision (still a 'finished' game) and our post-release goal is to keep working on it for as long as possible. As you can read from this schedule, we see our game in an advanced state, it just hasn't reached all our goals for the full release yet.


🎃 Spooky things

The Halloween event is going to be activated any midnight now - take your chance to grab the special content this year!
