Hey Survivalists,
The Fun Pimps would like to wish you all a Happy Easter and to celebrate we’ve served up a rather massive Alpha 14 update. We know it’s late but in our humble opinion it’s pretty great. For those of you who felt 13 was a grind or that we peaked at 12 we have addressed a lot of issues with balance and grind and fixed hundreds of bugs.

We thought Alpha 13 was big with over 35 pages of release notes but alpha 14 has over 54 pages of bug fixes and release notes that have gone into this build so expect some great new stuff, a mega shit ton of bug fixes, as well as some nice optimizations.
