There are also plans to review the latest bug fixes and get a new small update pushed out soon.

• Players are hoping that some issues reguarding tribe fertility and gathering are solved, to list a couple.

One Discord user asked if animals would appear in the game in the following week.

• The developers gave a no, citing the fact that a single model of an animal could take days to produce. The code is also important and can take quite a while to create.

• They also mentioned that there will be no deadlines. The roadmap will give information regarding the contents of each major feature, as well as the order in which they will be developed.

Mini Op-Ed


To me, this quote shows that the developers are very passionate about their work.

Latley, they have been rampimg up their communication efforts with the community.

• It will take time to dispell the negative feelings caused by the game’s release delay and previous lack of communication.

• The game will become more and more valuable as the community is listened to and treated well.
