Hello again everyone, Dev Blog 5 is here!

This week is a real DOOZY of an update, we've been working on some new modular environment pieces, along with some new features and a truckload of bug fixes!

Expect to see an awesome new game world in the next update!

Some new seasonal crops - cauliflower, lettuce and wheat!

You guys have been giving us a ton of feedback on Discord after playing the game so far, thank you all for the continued support!

This weeks updates are as follows:

  • Added grass that can be cut down with a sickle
  • Added milk that can be gathered from cows once daily
  • Added eggs that can be gathered from chickens daily
  • You can now interact with cows and chickens (they give you animal products, plus a little heart)
  • Added a buyable chicken
  • Added a friendship system for animals (no effect yet)
  • Updated fence placement so you can now place it in grass/weeds
  • If you target a tile, but that tile has something on it, you target that object instead
  • Fixed an issue with the eggplant model
  • Fixed an issue where turnips had the wrong icon
Here are some new models for the eggs and milk, along with the new cliffs behind!
