16 November – The Vaults in Our Stars

Hey everyone!
In our last post we showed off terraforming which can completely transform the biome of a planet (including the background)!

Control over the very nature of a planet itself? That sure seems like some form of mysterious, ancient technology, doesn’t it? No ordinary explorer can get their hands on something like this – you’re going to have to enter the Ancient Vaults to hunt them down. What other bygone secrets do these vaults hold, and what guards them?

The update isn’t far away now, so we hope you’re all excited!

In other news, our friends at Sanshee have made some really cool Protectorate t-shirts and tanks! We’ve had loads of requests for Protectorate shirts, and Sanshee’s done a great job turning them into a real thing! Go check them out on Sanshee!
