Update #242 expands both map generation for v2 seeds as well as the roster of interesting faces that might join your crew. Not to mention a boss hat! Through the end of the year, we'll be doubling down on more art, outfits, faces and hats as well as new storylines.
We'll jump into the extra details for this update below, but first a few things you might want to know!
If word hasn't trickled down from the tippity top of the New Boston spires, leaked below the streets and drip-drip-dripped into your safehouse, we're here to tell you about our upcoming turn-based cyberpunk heist RPG. Cyber Knights: Flashpoint will be coming to Steam in 2021 and mixes stealth, hacking and tactical combat with deep RPG elements and a unique heist system for missions. The wishlist button is calling your name, Knight. If you didn't know, now you know.
This time of year is a special season on Steam -- its time to nominate the games we love for Steam awards. This year, we're going up for Labor of Love and hope you'll join in by nominating us!

Map Seed v2 Max Upgrade
We've loved to see all the huge maps that have been created for map seeds v2. That has inspired us to raise the roof and push it even farther. With this update, we've cranked the maximum quadrant count for map seeds v2 all the way up to 70. The maps are crazy huge but 10/10 would gen again!
New Faces, New Hat!
With Update #242, we've added 6 new character faces as well as a new wide brimmed pirate hat. We've heard from the community that we needed more faces with beards and with long hair, so we've included both in this update. Also, we've started a longer process of adjusting the proportions and connection points of the male character's head and torsos -- things should already be looking better this update.
v3.1.7 - 12/4/2020
- Increased maximum quadrant size in map v2 to 70!
- Added new wide-brimmed pirate hat
- Added 6 new character faces include 3 new bearded faces
