Dev Notes[]

V0.28 – Removable stumps! New leaf fire trap, new molotov trap, new passenger manifest system (find the missing passengers), Dynamite enemy type, arrow basket, Rock fall tree trap, cave fixes, hanging cave bats and lots more! Posted on 24 November, 2015 by Anna

Hey Everyone,

This patch finally allows players to remove leftover tree stumps. Simply place a bomb on a stump and stand back.

We’re also introducing the passenger manifest system. Once collected this can be used to keep track of the missing plane passengers you find in the world. This is a first pass at this system – currently some bodies may not register correctly

Additionally 3 new traps, an arrow basket, a new enemy type, cave bats, new improved looking tree trunks and lots more, all listed below.

As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub
