Beta 2.0.3 Released

Hey all, we’re proud to be dropping our largest “minor” patch to date. We’ve been busy taking suggestions, bug reports, and watching tons of let’s plays and streams to get some extra polish added to Wayward in preparation for a bit longer of a wait until 2.1, our first major patch for Wayward on Steam. By the looks of things, we will also be doing a 2.0.4.

We also just want to thank you all again for checking out Wayward in it’s early stages and appreciate your monetary support on Steam and giving us an extra reason to want to keep working on the project.
