The journey towards full release

BrainBread 2 has been in Early Access for some months now, we're progressing steadily towards a full release, this will take time but we're getting there. We're in dire need of mappers, we need more objective maps in order to truly bring forth the nostalgia of BrainBread!

Yet, we also need testers, which is why we have created a new public group for those who are interested in participating in our testing sessions. We'll most likely schedule tests on Sundays @beta branch whenever it is necessary.
You can join the group here:

Merry Christmas!
