Hey Everyone,

This weekend well be happy to present the major milestone update. Right now its available in beta as we wrap up the last few issues before pushing it live this weekend.

This updated includes very large number of new features – such as fishing, new cloning respawn, wip prologue and a lot more. We have also reworked and improved a lot of areas of the game – like raining in buildings, GUI effects and more.

In a few days we`ll follow up with another update that includes first time Prologue that gives some content to all the new features and explains the story behind respawning on the giant generation ship.

Thanks for your continuous support, and sorry about delays with the new update - it was a big one.
