Patchnotes via Steam Community

Thank you for your patience while the team worked through versions 1.0.8 and 1.0.9 in this Alpha update.

  • Updates will resume at a normal pace after this patch
  • The engine has been updated along with major performance components
  • We took the extra time to move forward in other areas while the overhaul took place
  • Some features are still experimental and may break during testing

You will be greeted by a refreshed menu lobby scene, which serves as a foundation for character creation and Sentipedia interfaces.


Next, a new biome selection menu is available, where we will expand settings for your starting conditions.

  • Only the Coastal Meadow biome is available, with the rest to follow soon after.
  • Multi-biome generation will remain experimental until we can bring it back into the default branch with stable performance and spawn behavior.

As a preview of patch 1.0.10, we have included a new set of village assets that will make the foundation of the first Era.

The villages are smaller, and more primitive, but they will be denser and more realistic for the first Era.

Press E next to cooking pots to initiate the cooking sequence.

You can select ingredients you have harvested from the environment or looted from mobs.

Different recipes have different player effects; check the inventory for each blueprint recipe!

As part of the combat update, the mage can now keep moving while targeting an opponent and firing projectiles.

Magmaton AI have also been updated with a charge attack that will knock down the player

Another major feature of this update includes the Yagi camps, which are randomly generated.

  • Some camps include explosive barrels that can be shot with projectiles
  • All camp assets can be destroyed
  • Yagi groups spawn in different numbers
  • There are still issues with Yagi spawner, some camps may not spawn Yagi
