Hey everybody. 

We hope you're all out there doing well. We're back with another QOL update. As before, we're using this time to give the team some room to catch for the next update. And in classic Klei fashion, we took this opportunity for a small update and went a little overboard.  

In addition to that, we have a bunch of fun stuff to give away. We have new twitch items, login-in rewards, and a new Klei reward item as well!

Update Notes

  • Added the Cookbook item for survivors to record and review their culinary adventures.
    • The Cookbook item can be crafted under the Food crafting tab.
    • Recipes will be learnt when the player who cooks the food picks up the item off the cooking device.
    • Food details will be displayed upon eating it.

Klei Rewards!

And because we need to get more and more cool stuff into Klei Rewards, we have also added the Hunters Shovel to Klei Rewards for 1200 points. We also added the remaining 4 sets from the Side Show collection to Klei Rewards page. And have some free points too: https://accounts.klei.com/link/augQOL (link expires in 30 days)

Next update!

The team has been chipping away at the next big content update, but before that we have another Character Refresh coming up next month! Now, this image is probably a bit more on the nose than the teasers we have shared in the past, but frankly - we really just thought this was so cool that we had to share. As always, we'll have more details as we get closer to release.
