Darkout is a Sandbox game set in the distant future on a dark and desolate world. You escape pod just crash landed and you must figure out how to survive and defend yourself against all the creatures lurking in the shadows. Hopefully you can stay alive long enough to try and escape or rule this world.

Last two days have been really busy for the team, here you have the last fixes made to the game. 

We will now also be structuring things a bit better since we received a few volunteer offers on the testing grounds. So, we’ll get them to test the hell out of a patch first then when it looks like all is well we will release. Up until now it was beta testers who tested for us and we never had any dedicated testers to actually take this off of the coders hands. The coders work insane hours and they can’t always test for everything, BUT, now the testers can :)

Also Please report any Bugs on our Forums

-Large objects placement fixed (doors, combinator, closet. etc...).
-Wires placement fixed.
-Invisible crash-pod fixed.
-Research points are now properly updated in the crafting tab when changed.
-Fixed an issue with the starter tar buckets not giving the empty bucket back after crafting.
-Crafting a crossbow will now consume the bow required in the recipe.

-The player will no longer start to automatically run if you happen to press SHIFT/CTRL/ALT while trying to move.
