How do you sign up for "Experimental Branch"?

Recommended Posts

Afternoon,

I just read @Raphael van Lierop's April update. Lots of exciting stuff! One of which was the "experimental branch" for those who want to experience untested mechanics and possible game breaking bugs. How do I sign up? :D

In Steam, right click the game and go to properties. There should be a tab called betas or something like that, where you can opt-in to special versions. I would expect the experimental branch to be selectable here, but it isn't (yet?). I expect the experimental branch will be activated after the next update, but I might be wrong.

It could be as you mention or maybe just a new menu option in game.

I'm looking forward to it more fun or perma deaths to play before other updates.

That's what I assumed too. But like you said, we have to wait for more details :)

I saw the "update queued" and got all excited!  Then I saw there wasn't anything new and felt like Charlie Brown when Lucy pulls out of the football. :(

Welcome to the forums @Llenne ^_^

If you want to see what's being tested you'll have to look at the test branch forums.
