Regarding some game-breaking issues in version A1A

Hey,


We are currently aware of some game-breaking and crash inducing issues.
These glitches are mainly based in the forest, possibly as a result of the adjusted AI.

A patch fixing all these issues will be released by Friday night at latest. After the hot-fix update A2A will be developed and launched.

Needless to say this glitch has set back development slightly as well as intentions on the promotional side of things.

We apologise for any incovience caused and will ensure such an issue will not arise in the future.


Thank you for your support,

Eoin Clifford,
