This build has not been seen in a public branch.

Hello everyone!

This is the last update of 2021. Here we would like to summarize what has been done for our project during this year:
The staff numbers grew many times compared to the beginning of 2021;
We’ve finished 100% of mechanics planned for Beta-2 and 80% of mechanics for Early Access;
We’ve resolved all most technically complex problems with updating the version of the engine and network (Seamless);
Over 40% of the problematic code was refactored;
The game world was recreated from scratch, currently, it is many times ahead in its progress than the old version of the world;

Considering all that, it seems to us that 2022 will be critical for our project.

We are truly grateful to all who follow us and support both us and our project.

Happy New Year, see you there. ROG’oms up!
