New Year’s Update!

We have been very busy since the beta, mulling over the data, making the improvements you asked for, and seeing who can build the biggest snowman(current record: 3 ice cubes high, not much snow in San Diego).

December Developer Update Recap: 

Right before Christmas, Dan went over the new Alien Hominid Invasion changes on stream, so we made a list (and checked it twice) of some of the changes in case you missed them. 

  • New Enemies: Inchworm + Big Crab
  • You can now change difficulty on a save!
  • Sewer Children have a chance to sell a weapon in game
  • HUD redesigned and follows players
  • Alien picks up speed when running
  • Highest Aggression raised on agents
  • Normal Difficulty max hearts down by one

We learned a LOT from the time everyone poured into the Beta, so we thank you for the best present ever: data! These are only a fraction of the changes we made, but many of them came from direct player requests; thanks for helping us make the game the best it can be!

Check out the recap video here!

Speaking of the betaโ€ฆ

Beta Challenge Submissions: 

Many of you made submissions to our Beta Challenge, so we wanted to highlight the runs, strategies, and builds you all used to climb the leaderboards. Iโ€™m so proud of everyone I could cry! Too bad chickens donโ€™t have tear ducts.
