v2.6 Release: Minor Fixes, Steady and Strong.

Hey Spacefarers!

Today we are pushing v2.6 which includes a few minor fixes to the game. We also wanted to point out for windows users if you get a crash it should create a .dmp file now in the applications root directory. This was a feature added in 2.5 that has been slightly overlooked.

Getting down to the general patch notes, it's various soft fixes and crash fixes that should added some more stability and strengthen the flexibility of the application. Things like uninitialized variables shouldn't cause issues anymore. If they do they should be clear and easy to track down now.

This should help a few fixes we have been seeing in our Support Discussions and I'd like to thank everyone who cares enough to leave us feedback. It is extremely valuable as we don't invade your privacy and collect data automatically like a lot of games do in order to get at these crash reports.

Full patch notes can be read here at our Patch Notes thread

Thanks,
Underflow Studios

About This Game

You are the AI in charge of Earth's final interstellar spaceship, tasked with delivering your human crew to a suitable new home among the stars. The fate of previous ships is unknown--with a set of galactic maps to guide you, it's your job to decide which planets to visit, which crew to send down to the surface, and which choices they should make along the way. You are humanity's last hope.

Your choice matters!
Each of ten possible crew members has a distinct set of attributes, traits and flaws that will impact your chances, so choose wisely! With over 30 planets and stations to visit, over 700 choices to make, and near-infinite randomized sector maps to visit, there are countless paths to take across the galaxy.

A novel's worth of adventure!
Over 120,000 words of text across multiple playthroughs provide a rich storyline full of action, suspense, drama and horror. Can you find your way down all four paths to victory?

Customizable
Lua-based missions and json-based data files make writing and scripting your own missions simple, and creating new characters is a breeze with the in-game character creator. Write yourself into the game, or include your friends and see who survives.

Eat your crew
Food and fuel are hard to come by in deep space. Choose wisely but quickly in charting your course--when supplies run out, tough decisions will be in store, and cannibalism might be the only option...
