The future
Version 1.0 won't be the last you'll hear of Dog Sled Saga! There are a number of ideas we had during our Kickstarter campaign that we would still like to develop as major post-release updates to the game.

 

We hope you're as excited as we are for the final release!
Let us know in the comments, forums, Twitter, or Facebook if you have any feedback on this update.
