This past update we have been heavily focusing on optimization and we're glad to say we've made some improvements. Not only that but we've been working on some bugs. With just a small team of 3, Multiplayer is definitely a big task, but our programmer Daniel has been hard at work on it, and we appreciate your patience and this incredible community as we get it perfect.
While Dan is working on the multiplayer side of things, Kristina has been working on new content and Thiago has been getting the soundtrack together which was just sent out. We hope you love it as much as we do.
Next month we'll continue focusing on Multiplayer as we will be completely move the servers to a new host. Don't worry we'll have an update before we dive into that fill with items like the Crystal Furniture set.
More Quests and Items
Along with the optimization and bug fixes you'll find in this update we have included quite a few new items and over 20 new quests.
We have added almost new 30 Fairy Wings that come in various colours! Clovis is the one to look out for if you'd like these colourful new wings. We have added more clothing items including the Deer Dress, Ladybug Dress, Black Suit Jacket, Professor Jacket and more.
Kickstarter Exclusive Items
The Kickstarter Steampunk items are also fully implemented in this update. Including the two gliders and two clothing pieces. We will be sending the Kickstarter wallpapers in the next update. If you're one of our Kickstarter Backers that have these items in your tier, you can find your DLC codes in your email.
Due to popular demand we have added dialogue for the townsfolk of Florens sooner than we initially planned. We hope you enjoy this feature.
A New Garden Shop!
There is a new shop in Florens, the Garden Shop! Once you progress through Sierra's quests you'll be able to aid a new member joining Florens. When this new shop is open you'll be able to purchase decorative rocks, hedges, ferns, benches potted plants and more!

If you're enjoying those wood shipments, you'll love to hear there is a new quest line that will lead you to daily stone shipments from John Stone!
