Update #15

Dung Beetle Fanfiction

Hello everyone!

We wanted to let you know that we've started working on the demo. Here's a little sneak peek of a classy dung beetle diner:

We've set up a forum for beta testers, but it's probably better to wait until there is something to test before inviting backers to register. Our plan is to release a very short alpha demo in early November for testers, and we will let people into the forum around that time.

As discussed earlier, we hope to release a longer public demo before the end of this year. Many of the art assets required for that demo are complete, but we are still working on the remaining areas and on game systems. Testers will have early access to the demo, but even if you didn't pick the tester tier or higher, we will still keep you updated on Kickstarter and on our website.

Until next time!
