Greetings Travellers,

Ready for some weekly news?

 

Updated!

We are happy to celebrate the arrival of Update 29, and we are happy with all the brilliant feedback (positive and negative, but always constructive!) we’ve been receiving about the new features!

There’s more to come, of course, as work on Update 30 and 31 is already underway. But for now, behold the gigantic full list of features below, jump into the game and experience it by yourself.

Read Patch Notes Here!

In addition to these massive additions to the game, the significant FPS improvement, we have reset the knowledge nodes (data banks) today so you can keep gaining knowledge without losing any items or progress. Use it wisely for your new ciphers slots and updating your cannon and engine schematics to adapt to overheat.

 

Ship-building Challenge

Now that we have ship painting, how about making a Christmas Tree Ship?!

Rules: MAKE IT COLOURFUL and submit links to Steam screenshots in the comments below!

Deadline: Thursday, 20th of December, 2018

Reward: 2 x drums of paint!
