Patchnotes via Steam Community

Finally it is here!! After a ton of work we finally have Rekindling playable in multiplayer. Updates will now resume their normal speed with our next one already less than 10 days away. Do keep in mind multiplayer is an early access feature in our early access game. So expect quite a few hiccups. We have an active channel on our Discord going at it to try and find bugs and bring them to us!

Multiplayer

When starting a game you are now given the option to start a 'Co-op' game. Doing so will open your game up for your friends to join! Make sure you have opened a port on your router as you are hosting the server locally. The default port for Rekindling is: 62345. Once you are in the game a friend can hit join game and help you build your settlement in tandem with you!

Technical rants

This update ended up taking a lot longer than indented. As many of you know, Rekindling runs off of our own custom game engine, as such we wanted to build a robust multiplayer framework we can use for all future games we make. We ended up restarting from scratch on the multiplayer part 3 times in the past 5 months. It has been an adventure, but the core framework there now is good and we now have a ton of room to grow and quickly add to it.

There will most likely be a ton of small updates over the coming weeks finding bugs with multiplayer and getting it to a spot where we feel comfortable with it. So bear with us and report anything you find to us here on Steam or on our Discord

Final thoughts

Thank you guys for still having interest in Rekindling. I have a lot of big plans for this game that extend pretty far into the future. As always we welcome any and all feedback so keep it coming! See you guys soon.
