Alpha 17 – On the Road has been released! This version brings roads and rivers to the world, new world quests, new tools for modders, new combat tools, smarter AI, and rebalancings and adjustments across the whole design. I’m afraid that this build is not compatible with saved games from previous versions, or mods from […]

We recently asked whether players would rather have the bugfix-only update released, or if they’d prefer we just kept working and waited until we had new content to release. The results aligned with my personal thinking, which is that the disruptive effect of a release (breaking various compatibilities) isn’t worth it for a bugfix-only release. […]

Progress update on Alpha 17

Some fun teaser images

November 4th, 2016

Hey all, just some quick teasers for you! (Edit: new ice planet shot added!) I’ll be releasing more information about this soon-ish. I just wanted to give you all an image so you know we are still working at full steam, on many different features. A16 will probably be the biggest update ever in terms […]

We’ve worked out the kinks since the last update, so now all purchasers buying the game off can immediately register their copy on Steam through This is better than buying on Steam for a few reasons: You get Steam access either way. You get access to the DRM-free version as well, which can be useful. […]

I’ve always wanted to give Steam keys to all players who buy the game on our website. Unfortunately we had to disable that after scammers attacked the site and started harvesting thousands of dollars in games using stolen credit cards. But no more!
