PUBLIC TEST INCOMING!!

We will be releasing our first pre-alpha build next week! If you are interested in trying out our game for free next week, please follow us on Twitterand join our Discord for more information and to be notified when it goes live on Saturday. This will be a pre-alpha build so expect bugs, but we will be doing our best to make it ready to go for testing. We are super excited to get Expedition out there!

Map Update

The map is really coming together now and each biome has a terrain that roughly captures the style we are going for. Moving forward, our focus is to spend more time detailing smaller areas of the environment and filling the world with more content.

Desert Biome

We scrapped the idea of making a woodland biome on the far west area of the map and decided to make a desert instead. The sand dunes are a simple start to what will become a detailed and interesting area to explore.

We also added spawns throughout the whole map that players and resources will spawn from at random.

Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like a...

Bumblebee is our newest hostile mob in the world. We are super excited by the design of this guy and will continue working on him this week to hopefully have him in the air by next devblog.

Woohoo, Overtime!
