TUG’s new tech update is so big that all players must start over

Please, let this just be me.

The bad news is that TUG players can no longer load up and play any of their saved games. The good news is the reason why: The 0.8.5 tech update to the terrain is so drastic that all prior versions are no longer compatible. The upcoming sandbox’s latest Kickstarter update announces that this version marks the big turn to the 2.0 engine and includes a major reworking of the biomes, terrain, and creative mode system. Seeds can also now move between fat and skinny based on gameplay, and for players longing to pad their weight with coconuts, those can now be both harvested and planted.

See some of these changes in the video below and read a full accounting of all them in the detailed patch notes. Then stay tuned over the next couple of months for “a lot of fairly huge announcements on the future of TUG.”

Serrenity Me too. It’s been a long ride with some nail biting moments but so far so good.

Nice. Have been waiting for the body morphing and the new crafting tables.

I backed this game from the getgo – it’s been awesome to watch it evolve and amazing that the team got the support it needed to keep it’s staff and everything.  
Two thumbs up for TUG :D

Really glad to see these guys on the comeback trail.  While I often say that Shards Online is my last hope for indie games I’ve backed, if TUG made it to the finish line, I certainly would not complain!  Way to go!
