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.

February 2023 Condo Contest - Monochrome

Hey everyone! It’s time for another Condo Contest.

The theme for February’s contest is Monochrome!

With this theme, your build should be focused around one color!

You don’t need to use the default color on an item, but you should try to keep all items in the build around the same hue. Feel free to change the brightness and saturation.

The submission period ends on February 23, 2023 at 11:59 PM.

First place prize is 2,000,000 Units!

You can read the rules, how to enter, and prizes here!

The new Virus map is looking to be awesome! Definitely looks more interesting and unique compared to the newer Little Crusaders map (just feels too small and not unique in my opinion). Loving the progress I’ve seen on recent dev logs.

I really hope some of the props and textures from Altar get added as items and canvas materials when the map releases, there’s a lot in these screenshots that I’d like to be able to use in my condos (especially the foliage and ground textures)


Love the lighting on Altar.
