This Phase of Beta Ending Today

Tomorrow we are ending the current phase of beta and with that we will be closing sales for the game until the next phase is ready. We have received tons of invaluable feedback from the community that has had an immeasurable impact on the game. Our path forward is now clear and we need to take some time to make the changes required to make sure we deliver the best experience possible.

Development of Hot Lava will continue to operate as it has been and no significant changes to the development of the game have been made.
  • Those that have already purchased will continue to own Hot Lava and be able to play throughout development, as well as the final game when it releases
  • We will still provide periodic updates, allowing you to test the latest features and content
  • Updates will have a general focus on overall structural and systematic changes, and will be less focused on player retention and marketing
  • Sales will resume when we are ready to expand to a larger audience
  • We still absolutely welcome your continued feedback and suggestions
I want to once again thank everyone for all the love and support you have shown over the open beta phase, and I can’t wait to show you what we are working on next!
