General changes
  • Added 47 new achievements! Check them out ingame, for now, it's mostly early game achievements, but we'll be adding plenty more after the official release. There are two types of achievements:
    • One Time: Have an end and can, you guessed it, be completed one time. These may have multiple milestones which reward you on your way to your end goal.
    • Endless: Have no end and can be progressed indefinitely. These achievements reward you every time you reach a milestone, and the reward may either be the same for each milestone or increase the further you progress.
