Dear Birdfolks! 🐣

Wow, launching Scorchlands into the stratosphere via Early Access was a fantastic experience. We had such a blast - thank you for the warmest welcome possible. We receive uplifting feedback from all around the globe. Our team is so glad that you enjoy colonizing with Giwis! 🐦

Time for the first update to Scorchlands. 🔧

It’s already here!

Let’s shed some light on…

Scorchlands  - Giwi and Photo Mode

Photo Mode 📸 is a new feature added to this update.

All of us had so much fun taking photos of freshly set-up colonies, Nexuses, and terraformed biomes. We hope that you’ll enjoy our “digital camera” as much as we do.

Don’t forget to post your photos on Scorchlands’ Discord server! 🎧

We also did some fixing here and there. 🛠️
You probably want to know what changed in the game’s build, so here’s a full changelog.
