The Release Candidate

In today’s possibly-very-special update to Space Food Truck, we have for you what is called a “release candidate”. That means if nothing major is broken, this will be the official 1.0 version of the game!

There are still tons of features and even new gametypes we’d like to try out if things go well after launch, but what we have at the moment is a great representation of what we originally set out to make: a goofy, sometimes brutal, sometimes hilarious space romp for you and some friends.

So definitely install this version, take it for a spin, and let us know what’s working or not working for you! Email your feedback to bugs at spacefoodtruck.com, or start up a discussion on our Steam board. We’ve come a long way thanks to your willingness to play our work-in-progress, so thank you all for helping us get SFT where it is today.

Per usual, we’ll be streaming our playtest of today’s build on Twitch at 2:30pm EST, so stop in and say hi or ask a question (Stream complete! Watch it right here). Here’s the big list of changes in today’s build:
