Experimental Branch -- Read First
Howdy Folks!

Before major updates come out they will first be available in the optional experimental branch on Steam so that users have the opportunity to help test the latest content before it goes live to the main branch. If you’re interested in testing out the latest content and want to help track down bugs and issues then please continue reading.

What Is The Experimental Branch?
The Experimental Branch is a separate version of the game under Steam that you can choose to opt in to. The Experimental branch is an in development version of a major content release. This version will continue to receive updates until it contains the majority of intended content and is generally stable. The update will then shift over to the Test Build branch for final testing before it’s released for everyone.

This is a great way, for those interested, to help test new updates to the game and provide bug reports, feedback and gameplay suggestions. If you’re interested in checking out the absolute latest content and want to get your hands dirty then this is for you.

How Do I Access The Experimental Branch
Open your Steam Library
Right click on Mercury Fallen in your Steam game library list and select Properties
Click the Betas tab
In the drop down choose “experimental - Experimental”
Beta Access Code not required. Leave field blank.

Steam should automatically start downloading the latest experimental build, if available. If Steam does not start downloading immediately then click “Verify Integrity Of Game Files...” under the Local Files tab.

Bug Reporting
Report all bugs/suggestions/feedback related to the current Experimental Branch in the Experimental Branch discussion thread or in the experimental channel on Discord. Please be as detailed as possible when reporting bugs/issues so that I can duplicate the issue. I'm always looking for general game play feedback so let me know what you like and what you don't.

Important Notes
You can revert back to the main branch of the game by opting out of the Experimental Branch under the Beta tab. Saved games created in the Experimental Branch may not work with the main release version if there have been substantial changes between versions.

Only opt-in to the Experimental Branch if you want to deal with potential game breaking bugs and help test the latest content.
