Accessibility Suggestions

We’ve created a forum post asking the community for suggestions on how we can improve gameplay for players with certain conditions such as colorblindness, dyslexia, or anything else that might affect a players ability to use the standard presentation and controls of the game.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, and possible solutions on how to solve a particular issue, please check out the forum post here.

What’s Keno like? I’ve never seen this before

zamn that water got me shloshin’

also frostbite looks really good :]


I know that this is for the new Condo item, but I hope we can get personal color-able floating chat that appears above players when they send text in chat in plaza/condos.


The dirt roads in Frostbite are a really nice detail, the map looks great so far. Being able to turn on the sink items is a great detail and I really like that you can change the drawers/cabinets on the kitchen counters. The new Virus achievement icons are a huge improvement, too. cool log


It’s kinda like playing the lottery. You pick numbers to bet on and the more you get or get close to I think the bigger your winnings.

Keno’s fun. Essentially, you pick 20 numbers from the card and then 20 numbers get called out (kinda like bingo) and you get paid a different amount based on how many of your picked numbers match the called numbers.
