Post news RSS Release Notes for Patterns Release 0.05 Update 1

One last update before the holidays! Bug fixes and more world options.

Posted by on

We wanted to provide one more update to the game before we all go away for our holiday break.

Today we are adding more settings that you can use to modify your worlds, along with some bug fixes. The new settings will allow you to control the lighting values, gravity settings and more!

We hope you have fun with this and let us know how it is working for you. In the new year we promise to role out more features that enable you to further mod your worlds. Look for more updates from the Patterns dev team in 2014!
