We’ve just released our first major update, bringing Besiege to V0.08!
Why V0.08 and not V0.1 or V0.06 you ask?
The version labeling system we are using for Besiege represents our progress towards the official release version, V1.0 We had initially planned to go to version 0.1 with this update but there were a few things that we weren't able to implement, so we weren’t satisfied with calling it V0.1 just yet.
I’m sure many of you are aware that we’ve exceeded our original deadline for this update by a week and for this we are sorry. The speed at which we can produce different forms of content is still unclear and we’re really grateful for your continued patience.
With that all being said the next few updates will be minor ones and at this point we can’t say when the next major update will be released.
Anyway, without further ado here’s V0.08:
With V0.08 we’re introducing a new island, Tolbrynd. This island will start out with 5 levels with an additional 10-15 to be added in later updates. We’re also giving you two new blocks; a High Friction Plate to help with walking machines and a Drill for drilling people, I mean… stuff...
