If you would look to join our alpha testing program to check out the game, simply click on the nav dropdown in the top right-hand corner of our web site[] and register an account; instructions will be provided for requesting an alpha key.

This version introduces a rather large list of new content and features, primarily in the form of newly added room keys, and a stamina meter for displayed how much running power Dima has.

Additionally, we have added a bunch of new mobs (albeit with simplistic, placeholder AI for the moment), several new environments, a few new trash items, and many new effects and sounds.

As our formal release schedule is typically every other Friday, some of you may have noticed that we skipped a Friday, and even a few days beyond that; we simply needed a little extra time for this version. We will attempt to resume our typical two-week release schedule going forward.

  • Mobs drop fuel orbs when they die.
  • Balanced weapon attributes.
  • Aurora Bee mob now leaves a trail of a harmful gas.
  • Added two new trash items: Floppy Disk and Poo.
  • Added 7 new mobs: Gib Pincer, Colonel Clux, Paste Maker, Bowl Buddy, Rhinowalrus, Hydra and Brocolops. (Note their AI is still very simple.)

Minor changes:

  • Restructured how environment loading works. (This opens a possibility for modding, although it's not a huge deal yet.)
  • Updated planet preview images.
  • Added a volume slider for sound effects in the options menu.
  • Decephalon shots are faster.
  • The floor under trash heaps are now dirty, as they should be.
  • Changed blood decal textures.
  • Each time a living entity gets damaged, there will be blood.
