"Have You Ever Seen Paper??" Update 3.3 now ready for testing!

Posted by: Dave on steam_community_announcements June 4, 2020

Ahoy drifters!

We're pleased to announce that we have another update ready to test for you all. This update iterates on the research system.

We've made research a more active process. Instead of having to collect research points, you will now have to collect books. These books will need to be researched in a brand new building, the research station!

We invite you all to test this update and find any issues before we upload it to the main branch.

When bugs occur, provide as much information as possible to help us resolve these faster!
Read here how to submit and track the current bugs in the game.

This patch is still in development and can be tested on the experimental branch to give feedback.

This is how you can enable the experimental branch of Flotsam. This will only work when you're not in a game:
1. Open Steam Library
2. Right click Flotsam
3. Select Properties
4. Go to tab 'Betas' at the top.
5. Select 'Experimental' in the drop-down.

Enjoy the new update!
