Good <Insert local timezone here>,
I hope you all had some fun with our april fools joke this year, and if not, well, I'm sorry for that.

Sadly, the system that was put in place to keep track of who participated in the event did not function as it should have.
As such, everyone that comments to this post before the end of April will receive the "Quack" skin when the game is completed.

This is an unique weapon skin (with rubber duckies) that will affect every weapon's sound and to commemorate the april fools event.

Likewise, we will keep the april fools build up and available on our discord page throughout the month, so people that wish to download it and play around with it get the chance to do so. (The debug menu keys are f1 and f10).

But now, onto the next portion!

The month of March saw 2 new programmers join the team!
these being Alex and Justin, you might've spotted some of their work already in the april fools build, but in case you've missed it, they've been working on the in-game player names and text handling.

Alex and Justin will focus primarily on game-play oriented functionality and animations and have shown quite a bit of passion and dedication.
Additionally there have been a few more applicants taking their "entrance test", who knows, maybe we'll see them next month!

And that's everything for now, there's more work that's been completed, but has been omitted because it's still work in progress.

So, this is a short one, as people are joining the team, getting settled down and working on things, stuff is slowly getting back on track.
It's been fun to mess around with the discord store as well, the discord store integration with the server sure is an interesting thing to look at.

And, for now we'll most likely be using it to push out alpha updates and keep everything up-to-date.

That said, we'll not be a "discord store exclusive".
When we're ready to open things up, we'll most likely have our own ways to provide game updates separate from any platform.

Additionally, we are not planning on locking accounts to specific platforms, your discord account should work on steam and vice versa.

And with those short messages, I wish you all a nice day.
With Love,
Luna

Quack, Thanks for giving us just a hint of what's to come with Nekrova with this April fools build.
