Test Servers Live Now!
Summer is officially upon us, which means we’re lining up a patch this week. Before we roll it out to the live servers, we’d like to try out a few more changes on the Test Servers. The new Test Server build is available now and the Test Servers are up until Midnight (EDT) tonight. We hope you’ll come out and join us!
We will have devs in DISCORD to hear your feedback.

Test Server Instructions
Anyone who owns the game should find “The Culling Test” in their Steam Library (you may need to restart your Steam client to see it).
