Crashed on an alien world? Surrounded by ocean predators and hostile environments? Fear not, brave traveller: For you now have new means of crafting at your disposal. The Workbench and Propulsion Cannon will transform the way you explore the ocean!

 

The propulsion cannon was developed by a crack team of Alterra Corporation scientists. The cannon may or may not exploit un-patented work by one Dr Eli Vance, rumoured to be an employee of one of Alterra’s competitors, Black Mesa Corporation. We can’t be sure. We can be sure that nothing like the Propulsion Cannon has existed for a very long time – Perhaps even as long as the half-life of the universe.

The propulsion cannon can be used to …

Subnautica Dev Update 7: Post SEA

Subnautica

Last week, Subnautica was released on Steam Early Access. Since then, over 11,000 games of Subnautica have been played. That’s crazy! Subnautica’s development was already pretty open before December 16th, but now the flood gates have opened.

We’re absolutely swimming in ideas and feedback. Treading water is boring, so naturally we’ve been diving into all sorts of stuff in the days since release, and a new development build is available on Steam. If you have Subnautica in your Steam library (get it here), you will receive the update automatically.

Here’s a quick summary of some of the changes and additions that have been made. We can never fit everything in these updates, so please check out the Subnautica

Normally, we do a weekly updates that discuss some of what we’ve gotten up to each week, and these posts usually co-incide with the release of a new update on Steam.

We can never fit even close to everything in these blog posts. For more complete information about what …

Subnautica Dev Update 4

Some people say ‘better late than never’ – But in the case of Subnautica, that’s not true. Right now is better, earlier is better. So much is happening so fast that I feel bad that this dev update is coming on a Saturday, rather than our usual Friday. It’s here now though, so don’t worry, you won’t have to resort to playing some other game (what other games are there out there, anyway?).

There’s now a new Subnautica development build available in default branch on Steam. If you haven’t subscribed to the experimental branch, this means a new build will automatically download to your Steam library. If you are on experimental branch, you already received this build earlier today.
