Patchnotes via Steam Community

I’ve been on an absolute tear these past couple weeks, prepping the game for its final console submission before release. Speaking of which, a release date for the end of early access and the console versions is going to be announced very soon. Keep an eye out for something called the “E3 Pre-Pre-Show on Twitch”, which I think is happening on the 9th. I’ll be making an appearance on it, and we should be announcing an official date.

For more info on the current state of development, check out my "What’s Being Worked On" post on the forums.

I’m expanding last update’s Fortnight Discussion from Cheap Deaths to Cheapness in general. What do you find to be “cheap” about the game?
