We are part of the Steam Summer Festival!

Dear Adventurers,

Happy times for us, we are part of the Steam Summer Festival! Which means our demo has been selected and highlighted, and you might come across this game without expecting to (and that does tie-in with the name of the game, ha! Someone please stop me from making more bad jokes).

This demo is an updated version of the first one, with bug fixes as well as typos, and more day/time differences. You will be able to play chapters 1, 2 and 4, giving you the very basics of the game as well as a longer chapter to really sink your teeth into the game, and play with a few cool puzzles!

Good news, everyone! 

We have prepared the seventh chapter for you. In which we attempt to restore what was broken millennia ago. We hope you enjoy it!

There's only one Chapter left and release will be ready!

Today we're showcasing a snapshot of a new gameplay feature that appears in chapter 5 and beyond! This footage was recorded with the in-engine camera to show you a different angle of map. 

This canon will attack you as soon as you enter its area of effect, so you can't do anything in that corner until you've dealt with it, and for that you need a solder to throw a bomb at it (and you also have to find said bomb!), before you can get your workers in the area safely!

We wish you all good health and success. Thank you for being with us!
