Yes, as promised, the new alpha is out for your enjoyment – released as part of the 2012 Annual Roguelike Release Party (ARRP). There was tons of changes in this version – hopefully this is the final stretches before getting a solid “beta” version out. Some things you will love in this version (without spoiling it too much):
- Treasure hunting
- Iron-based crafts
- New soundtrack by Austin Dhillon
- 40+ new items
- Monster loot tables
Special shout-outs to Jeff, Silloe, and Jarkko for all the bug testing for this release.
Also, a very huge (and special) shout-out to Austin Dhillon who composed the complete Wayward soundtrack. Four brilliantly moody and atmospheric tracks with the right touches of modern and retro.
