Co-op multiplayer added!

Hey Everyone,


Here’s our first pass at co-op multiplayer implementation, expect bugs!


We’re really excited to see what you guys think and hear any ideas you have for either additional game modes or additions to the current mode!  – As this is a first iteration we’ve limited this mode to 2 players but expect to increase this in future patches.


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

Destroying partially built items can be glitchy! Try not to destroy structures you haven’t placed yourself!

v0.08c- Subsurface skin shading hotfix for AMD cards and save/load fixes

Hey Everyone, here’s a small fix for AMD cards, as the latest patch caused skin subsurface rendering to break on some models.


As we’ve also fixed some save load issues, previous saves may not work! We hope to stabilize saving and loading soon so that future updates don’t break save games.


  • Hotfix for subsurface skin on AMD cards
  • New skinny enemy animations added
  • Out of date saved games will now be ignored, instead of attempted to load if incompatible with latest patch (clicking load on these will start you back on plane)
  • Fixed plane crash location that was set too steep and where players would die instantly if they fell out of without eating medicine first
  • Fixed issues with some buildings causing load times to increase
  • Fixed issue where buildings would disappear from your save game and you would have to load from a fresh game to see them. (this one was hard to track down! let us know if it’s still happening for anyone after this update)

v0.06 fix!

Thanks to everyone in the community who helped us get this crashing issue resolved so quickly! It turns out it was an issue with our latest ocean shader that strangely only affected certain nvidia cards.

We’ve turned off the water caustics for now that were causing the issue and re-uploaded v0.06 for everyone to check out!

v0.06 patch update

Hey everyone,

Trying to track down the crashing issue with last nights patch so reverting to previous version until we can fix it.

In the meantime, if anyone crashing can send us their system stats to it would be really helpful.

We will try and update everyone as soon as we can.
