This game is currently in development and will be for a good long while. Check out the devlogs to learn more about the game and its development and interact with Madthijs Games. The game is developed in MonoGame and C# and the source code will be made available when the game nears completion.

The builds that are currently available are super early and very alpha, but we'd like you to be part of the development process so feel free to try them out. Just know that most features are not yet implemented and there may not be a lot of game to play. Also, bugs...
