October 5, 2020 spraycanmansam | Beam Team Games Community Announcements
Hey everyone,

A new stable build (0.74.00) is up!

The new 0.74.00 update transitions our latest work on the experimental branch to the stable branch, including the latest Big World update, the new End Game scenario and a heap of bug fixes and polishing. Be sure to have a read of the patch notes below if you haven’t been playing on the experimental branch. The previous stable build (0.70.02) is still available as a separate branch in your Steam settings if you need to roll back for any reason. If something does go wrong during the upgrade process please make sure to post a bug report so we can diagnose and fix the problem. For this release, the stable and experimental branches are on the same version number and feature set. Have fun :) Stay Alive! :: Beam Team --
