Abandon Ship Major Update and Soundtrack

A new patch is now available for Abandon Ship, offering the first major update to the seafaring strategy game since it set sail in early access on Steam. The update is dubbed Treasures from the Deep, and this trailer offers a look on what it adds. In addition, they are now offering sales of the official soundtrack. You can find more details on The Treasures of the Deep in this post, which warns that saved games from previous versions of the game will no longer work after this update. Here's a bit:

Our first major update focuses on feedback from the community, and we've added some big systems that substantially improve the game. These concentrate on the following areas:

  1. Implementing an alternate solution to instant-killing crew in events
  2. Offering ways to get out of the 'downward spiral' that could occur if things were going badly or recovering from ship destruction.
  3. Supplementing the save system outlined in the Roadmap.
  4. Adding a "Quick Start" option that skips the opening section.

These issues often compounded each other and could prove frustrating. The post below describes our solution to these problems, and there is also a short video that explains some of our changes here:
