Beta 2.10.9 Released

Well, it looks like 2.10.x had another release in it after all. We might continue with this new workflow as we work on the next major in tandem with these smaller, minor releases going forward. This minor patch mostly consists of bug fixes and other small improvements to the game. Enjoy! More news on beta 2.11 coming soon (in the form of a newsletter).

Bonus Promo: As part of the Roguelike Celebration this year, Steam is doing a special sales event called, “Roguelike Celebration Event & Alumni Sale” where Wayward is -25% off right now. Grab yourself a roguelike or roguelike-adjacent game now and get to dying!

Roguelike Sale

Bonus Tip: Find yourself doing repetitive crafting and dismantling of the same item? Why not quickslot it and set the default action to “Craft” or “Dismantle”?

Craft Quickslot


  • Lit doodads will now be put out if the tile it is on turns into shallow water. (Thanks Matthew Cline!)
  • Increased the distance between the draggable dialog anchor and the scrollbar in the messages dialog, to match the other dialogs.
  • Wayward now disables high contrast and inverted color modes from Windows being applied in-game.


  • You can no longer start fires on/in doodads on shallow water. (Thanks Matthew Cline!)

Bug Fixes
