Learning Factory Dev Diaries, Apr 2022: Fancy Pants, Cool Cats, Lasers And Lava
Dear factory builders, cat lovers, science admirers and all our awesome subscribers! Please take a minute to read our monthly report of building Catopia on Mars.
Character customization is now avaialable. While in game, press “P” button to make your alter-ego (and their cat) look amazing! Like here:
Mars terraforming campaign is going according to plan. Lava rivers (and underground waters) now appear under the surface of Mars and clouds are floating up in the sky!
New buildings, resources and items for sale. Introducing hot and cold biomes naturally implied us adding biome-specific buildings, and the first batch is already here!
Smoothie Maker makes the famous Martian Mice Cold Smoothies and must be placed somewhere in the north, as it needs ice for operating.
Another building that prefers to keeps things cool is Laser Pointer Maker, which needs to be sumberged into deep water.
Battery Maker, on the other hand, works on solar power and therefore must be placed under hot desert rays of the south.
As for cat vitamins, they're just good for feline well-being. They also contain nano-bots, which mission is to negotiate with parasites inside cats’ bowels and persuade them to peacefully leave their hosts’ bodies. Because there's no place for violence in Catopia!
And here's a glance on what those awesome buildings are producing at the Factory (plus an image of a Gem, a new resource for making Laser Pointers and Jewelry)
Up next: 4 new legendary cats are spotted at the factory (ok, at least one of them is definitely not a cat). Can you notice them at your Factory and find out what their furry hearts desire?
There are also new upgrades, new achievements, new Ruins on the map and tons of performance tweaks and UI/UX improvements! Finally, we've got a new gameplay trailer:
That's it for this month, folks, but brace yourselves: we're now working on even more exciting mechanics, let alone drawing new comics and finalizing Stage 2 of our Early Access roadmap:
