1.30.2015 Alpha Update
Hello everyone! We’re back from PAX South and back to more frequent updates!

It was a blast getting to meet people at PAX South and the game played really well for everyone who stopped by the booth. We noticed a few nagging issues during the event that we wanted to get a patch out for and that’s what you’ll find in this update.

Now that we have the first phase of multiplayer out, we’ll be shifting back into more content creation. We can’t wait to get you even more things to do in TUG!

Check out the list below for all the fixes and additions you can expect in this update. If you run into any issues not mentioned below, feel free to let us know on our forums or contact us [email protected].

If you feel the urge, send any best wishes, cyber hugs or well meanings to me on the twitters @X_Nekochu_X. Have fun and keep surviving out there on TUG!

    If you call a bed or a workbench a hat...
    I think more than I say and say more than I do, but I do more than I used to and plan to continue.
    TUG modder (at least in the ounce of free time that occasionally flits by)

    Considering the size of the hat that Mumma Peg wore to my brother's wedding, I am gonna say that they are both acceptable as head wear.
