For the backers who pledged last month, private build access has been granted if your card was successfully charged (download at the employee intranet).
If your card was declined, then you did not receive private build access (but also weren’t billed anything either).
For WIP backers, the upcoming build will have a proof-of-concept system allowing you to ride Hanako. You’ll now need to either be riding Hanako or have Dinoian Boots in order to not get hurt while traveling on the scorching hot sand of the desert (one of these options is more permanent than the other ;)).
There’s also a bug fix incoming for room tags not being loaded during load from save file — this manifested as sometimes respawning in the wrong place after loading from a save file (a fresh start worked okay).
