As always thanks for your patience during our development process. We’re a small, dedicated team, but we hope this build and any subsequent updates will give a good impression to first-timers during our free weekend (9/20-9/23) as well as demonstrate our continued commitment to you veterans out there!

Season 2 is still in development as well, and we’ll be doing some previews hopefully next week to whet your appetite for what’s to come!

You’re in for a surprise, you’re in for a SHOCK!
