Junk Jack 3.0 Update is out!



Hello! Today we're releasing a big content patch which adds more than 250 treasures to be discovered, we call it the treasure hunt season! We also added a new end game planet named Tor which can be reached from Mykon, with lots of new monsters, equip pieces, treasures and blocks.

Planets have been tweaked and should be more varied and fun to explore, we redrawn a lot of mobs and made many balance tweaks and bug fixes.

We're quite satisfied with the progress made to the game and we think the game is mature enough to be released in full form on Steam, so please let us know what you think of this patch!
After the release we'll continue with the updates, to improve Junk Jack even more.

Happy treasure hunting!
