      Oxygen Not Included - Early Access Coming May 18   05/03/2017

      Oxygen Not Included Entering Early Access First off, we would like to extend a major thanks for the amazing community response to the Oxygen Not Included Alpha. When we released the game on the forums we'd hoped for a few dozen people to try it out and give feedback, but instead over a hundred thousand of you played the game. This was the best surprise we could have received. We're now excited to announce that Oxygen Not Included will be entering Steam Early Access on May 18th. It will cost $24.99, and anyone who owns an existing Klei game on Steam will receive a 20% loyalty discount. Players who purchased Oxygen Not Included in Alpha will not need to purchase the game again. Upcoming Agricultural Upgrade Additionally, we have been working with a handful of dedicated members of the community over the last few weeks to test an experimental build branch in preparation for Early Access. These players have been working with us to provide feedback on the new Agricultural Update content, and we're happy to say it's now in a place where we are ready to share with you all. It will be released on May 18th along with Early Access. Join us on the livestream!
      We'll be showing off the Agricultural Upgrade today at 3:30PDT! Come check us out on Twitch: http://twitch.tv/kleientertainment

  1. I was hoping to hear about a possibility of introducing a hydroelectric dam or power plant that will use water to make electricity either by turbines or by having water just fall into the machine. Sort of combining a fan with a pump and a liquid vent so that the water will fall and turn the fan which provides electricity.
  2. Also a possibility to look at would be geothermal power that would work off magma. Or a steam powered machine where you drop water into boiler that is on top of magma so that it liquefies and rises up to the top to turn a turbine and make electric power. Since the introduction of steam geysers and water geysers i feel like all these are ideas to implement. The way to balance the Hydroelectric plant is if it produces contaminated water which would then have to be sifted out of the water with a purifier. The steam would take either building it someplace hot where it could break or by making it require coal to use. It could produce polluted oxygen or something from the coal and the water evaporation. The Geothermal power would require intense heat which would require finding a magma chamber which the dupes have to enter to build and maintain it. could produce co2 or anything the devs would want. But in order for the dupes to survive in the chamber they have to have heat shielded clothing on.
  3. Try building your coal generator in an ice dome on wolframite gas permeable tiles. thats what i have done and i dont have a problem with them overheating. at 70 cycles and never had to repair them and they havent gone above 24 Fahrenheit yet.
