Survival Update!


v925 [4a608f0] -> v990 [77df05d]

Howdy everyone, @josefnpat here!

On a personal note, I'd like to say that the feedback and the response from the gaming and gamedev community has been really amazing for us. We have achieved more success than we thought we would and we'd love to thank everyone who's bought a copy or helped us out on our journey in other ways!

We've been inspired to keep working on RogueCraft Squadron, and we have lots of updates coming!

Back to the news; this is our first big update since the steam release! We're super excited about this update. There's lots of quality of life changes, optimization and most excitingly, a new game mode! We're hoping you'll join us in for the fun!

As always, we're inspired by your feedback, good or bad! Please don't hesitate to contact us!
