It's been a helluva week for Junk E.T. after getting back from RTX 2015, and what better way to celebrate than with the release of alpha v0.13!

All those who have an alpha key for the game can get the new version of the game by logging into the game's web site, and downloading the latest version. If you do not already have an alpha key, feel free to register an account on the web site to request a key. If you have any problems getting or using a key, please let us know right away!

The focus of this version was implementing some of the features we had on display at RTX, such as new music and sound, as well as the implementation of our brand new character model!

A full change log for the build follows. Please review at your leisure to learn more about the changes that are in Junk E.T. v0.13 alpha.

As a reminder if you have not done so already, we would really appreciate votes for Junk E.T. on Steam Greenlight.
