Beta 2.10.2 Released

Hey there,

We have another batch of fixes ready for ya’ll. We are still working on more improvements, additions, and balance tweaks as well, but our priority will continue to be fixing up any bugs and major issues that get discovered for the next little while. Please keep them coming!

Bonus Tip: Did you know you can inspect items (by default with Shift + Right Click) and hover over certain properties to get more information on what they do?

Inspect Tip

Bonus Promo: Happy Wayward Day! Five years ago today, we made the choice to release Wayward on Steam to garner support and to build our community. At that time, while still a full game, there was limited content and not much point for the progression in the game. Years later, we have thousands of new items, creatures, terrain types, plants, and other objects collectively. We now have an end-game, and tons more replayability, not only because we have since added multiplayer and infinite travel, but have extended the game with custom game support and a challenge mode. Oh ya, and milestone modifiers. Oh ya, and also remember when equipping items didn’t change your character sprite? Oh ya.. and… It’s impossible to list all the changes and additions here, but we have no plans of stopping. Building games with this amount of depth and breadth take time, especially whilst being a hobby project. Stay tuned for more!

  • The news menu will now have changelog buttons for more version release articles.

  • Fixed mousing over one craft after another not highlighting the proper items when the second craft used some of the same items as the first one. (Thanks Skarn!)

  1. Hi,

    Is there a chance you’ll release on direct download or other platforms than steam? I’d be really interested in playing the game, but I won’t install or use the steam software, which prevents me from trying out the changes you’ve made. I tried purchasing the game through humble, but they only refer a steam link as well.
