Space Salvager 1.4.2 – Part 5

Space Salvager 1.4.2 is finally out! Admittedly without multiplayer, which I am very unhappy about but it had to be done unfortunately.

The Future

The current plan doesn’t involve any more patches for Space Salvager, although knowing me I probably will anyway. Currently I’m planning on making a few small prototypes and seeing how they go, at least two of which are sequels/prequels to Space Salvager.  So stay tuned!
