Doronai Nui version is now available

Updated: Mar 24, 2022

The road to victory begins with recovery. The first hotfix to the Doronai Nui,, is now live and ready to be ripped apart in fraught combat, tense diplomacy, and brilliant feats of engineering. This update is full of small fixes and a few quality of life or minor balance updates, as you can see in our major changelog below.

The files for version can be downloaded here.

I'm going to drop the flowery words for a minute and explain what the update notation means: The first two digits describe the development environment, currently in the second major beta phase, 0.9. The third digit describes any major updates that have happened to that development environment, such as the addition or update of a major subsystem like the Modular Item System or Kanohi. The fourth digit describes any minor updates for system health and clarity, like the hotfix here, which doesn't have much more substantial than a few altered or swapped out Archetypes within it. So when the full release of the game comes out, it'll be, and after a few major patches and some smaller ones, it might look something like
