  1. Just wondering if the Humble version will be updated to this point any time soon. I noticed it’s on sale there, but I wasn’t planning on using the Steam key. Cheers, Mick.

  2. We typically update the DRM-Free build after a few patches following a major patch. Ideally when we feel it’s at the most stable. I would recommend you check the DRM-Free FAQ ( for details on major differences

    • Yep, I understand. I just wasn’t sure if it would have the ‘workshop’ update for obvious reasons, and thought you would wait until 1.4 or something. No worries, I tend to panic when it comes to Humble support since some devs don’t update their game AT ALL over there, but seeing as you’re still putting versions up from time to time I shouldn’t worry so much. Thanks 🙂

  3. Great patch.

    And 10 for adding more stuff to the map editor!
    Thnx 4 that, keep it going 🙂

    Gottah go, loading map editor wfto.
