Hello PlaneShifters, the new Alpha release 0.7.13 is ready!! This release is a full release, so you cannot update it through the PSLauncher.

This release is open to all Patreons and to all veteran players of the previous game (200+ hours of gameplay). Thanks to all the ones who are supporting us and cheering for us! Your support is very welcome and is actually what makes us continue in this incredible journey through the years.
For Windows users, be sure you launch it with Administrator rights.

Here is a list of changes:

- Improvements to Male and Female Enki geometry, shoulders
- Improvements to stonehammer male, beard, eyebrows, shoulders
- Improvements to Male and Female Diaboli. Torso, shoulders, arms, shoes, ...
