This is (hopefully) the final Unstable release for InDev 31, and best of all, it does not break your Unstable 5 saves! InDev 31 Stable is due out on September 16th. Unstable 6 is bringing in a ton of balance changes, bug fixes, and fleshes out the goals and perks system a bit. Many of the balance changes are thanks to your guy's feedback!
Your feedback is vital! I need feedback on all of the new systems introduced in InDev 31 as a whole. There's a lot of new mechanics in play here, and it will no doubt be completely out of whack in some areas and need some adjustments. Post down in the comments or on the forums with your experience. Did you gain chests too fast? God experience too fast? Goals are too hard, too easy? Not enough or too many perk rewards? Let me know so InDev 31 Stable can be as balanced as possible.
I hope you guys are all enjoying the new systems brought into InDev 31. I think it's a huge step forward to finally leaving Early Access!
Bonus: I may continue to add more goals and perks before InDev 31 is released, so feel free to give some suggestions for both down in the comments!
