Patchnotes 1.0.2 - 1.0.7 Early Access

Recommended Posts

Dear Drone Engineers,

We just released a new Nimbatus Update containing new Ice Planets, a new Introduction for the Survival Mode, Steam Achievements and much more! Check out the Patchnotes for a full list of changes.

We have translated the game into more languages with the help of our players! French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish are almost completely translated. Czech, Dutch and Finnish are not ready yet and will be added in a future update depending on the translation progress.
If you find text errors or spelling mistakes, please head over to our Crowdin page and suggest a better translation! If you want to help translate Nimbatus into another language please write us a message or post in our forum!

We plan to release the full version of Nimbatus in about a month! For this we'd like to fix as many bugs as possible. If you have any crashes or find bugs, please report them in our forum or on our discord.
