Deep in the Void - Update 0.2 - New Inventory/Item/Crafting System Bug Fixes - Polish



Hello dear Explorers,

Thank you all for the past few weeks. We received a lot of feedback, with many constructive ideas and suggestions for improvement. So far we have got 16,000 Views and 929 Downloads on Itch.io!

So what have we done so far? 

We have completely revamped the game's inventory/item and crafting system, as well as fixed many bugs that were present in the first version. We have also made many adjustments and improvements to existing features. A lot of behind-the-scenes systems have been redone in preparation for new content.

  • Inventory/Item/Crafting System
  • Switchable Controls
  • New Quests
  • Minimap
  • Quest Arrow
  • Better Enemy AI
  • Mid-Game Quality of Life improvement 
  • Many more!

What will be included in the next update?

The plan for the next update is to start work on the early game logistics system. We currently have cargo drones that transport everything to where it needs to be automatically, but this is a system that will only be unlocked in a later stage of the game. We want to create a system that is flexible and restrictive enough to force the player to come up with interesting solutions. The goal is for the logistics to be one of the main challenges in the game. The System will be a lot more “puzzly” and a lot more fun than it is now.
