Patchnotes 1.0.0 Release Preview

Recommended Posts

Dear Drone Engineers,

We just released a preview build of the release version of Nimbatus. It would be awesome if you could test this build and report any bugs you can find!

The full release of Nimbatus is getting closer! For this we are translating the game into more languages. It's not yet finished, but you can already change the language and see what has been translated so far.
If you find text errors or spelling mistakes, please head over to our Crowdin page and suggest a better translation!

We still plan to continue updating Nimbatus after the release, but the full release is an important step for us and we hope to get many new players on board :)

Please note: the new achievements are not yet working for the default game version, only for the preview version!
