Pushing updates that are stable ever 5 days is a lot of work. Especially when it includes major features being added like waypoints, resistances, wearable clothing, etc...
The new waypoint system looks great, works well, and was required to get the game to a more playable state. Why build a house if you can't even find your way home?
I worked in more achievements and items in the meantime as well. Variety adds more to the experience and so more content never hurts.
I wish I could write more but I don't have much more to write about. My days have consisted of me working on Project Explore and then running to my full time job, and working an 8 hour shift there a couple days a week.
All I can really say is that I hope that the game kicks off even further so that I may one day focus 100% of my work time on game development. I'd give up every minute I get just to live that life for a few years.
