Being a project where the community has a say, user feedback is crucial to the design of the game. We want players to return to Space Punks with pleasure. It’s hard to believe that it’s only been a few months since we released the Early Access version, but we’re excited about everything we’ll be adding to Space Punks in the near future, and we look forward to introducing the news to the fan community.
