We've got some really nice feedback on our 1.0.60 build and are hoping you will all be able to jump into the game and play some ES this weekend: the more feedback the better!
As for the "Virtual Awakening" add-on coming soon, here's your little update of the day: an additional hero bringing interesting lore, and a new technology!
New hero: Ting Neuil
Classes: Corporate / Commander
- Labour: 0
- Wit: 6
- Melee: 0
- Offence: 4
- Defence: 5
As beings that evolved on a Dust-rich gas giant, the culture and society of the Deuyivan are either incomprehensible or inexplicable. Therefore, to simplify communication they tend to adopt the names of other sentients that they meet. Neuil, a mathematical genius who applied his skills to financial models and game theory, took the name of an Endless leader that he met during his first trip off his home planet.
New technology: Gas terraformation
It will allow the player to terraform gas planets into lava or barren planets.
Using a technology invented by the Automatons (with a dash of Endless and Deuyivan help), it is possible to strip off extraneous gases and accrete the core of a gas giant into a solid planet capable of supporting a traditional ecosphere.
Have a nice weekend and stay tuned!
