Post feature Report RSS 8 months of development progress

Since the last update, when we presented v0.4.8 in June 2019, we've been updating the game to v0.5.3. In this feature, we want to summarise what we've been working on since then.

Team games
Multiplayer now supports up to 4 players. Play 3vs1, 2v2, 1v1v1v1, or any other combination.

If you starve, are defeated, or disconnect, but there are still enough players and teams left for the game to continue, your units will turn into Revolters.

As part of adding team games, we've also added a team panel in-game, chat improvements, updates to multiplayer lobby, and new game over screens.

Updated UI
All menus, panels, fields, text, buttons etc. in the game have a new look.
