Development Log #7 – Captain Starshot back to work.

Welcome back captain.

Having returned from a 3 week holiday the team is ready to get back to work. The focus right now is to get the game ready for early access. This means tying up loose ends and making sure there are no massive bugs present anymore. Players falling through the ground and such…
I will be getting into the specifics a bit later. First to entertain your eyes here is some eye candy:
