    Has anyone tried The Gardens Between yet? looks like a perfect bedtime game. Just worried I wont be able to see the details properly in handheld mode (as I need glasses usually to read text on it)

    Meet up with online gaming buddies, play some brilliant indies and crazy stuff over at the leftfield collection, watch some brilliant live talks, play a LOT of stuff (there's also retro and board game bits, there's all sorts) enjoy, bask in gamingdom, drink a lot (optional) This year you can see @elmo and chums from the Computer Game Show do a live show too as a special forum related bonus.

    - New merchant quests are called Cargo Runs - Exploration focused, Leisurely campaign in Forsaken Shores where we discover the fate of the first crew who went to the Devils Roar. Not time focused - Bilge Rat Adventures will now let you get doubloons after the event ends (already known us) - No info to share on when the next Bilge rat adventure is but focus is on ensuring it goes smoother than Cursed Crews did! - Behind the scenes on Cargo Runs coming this week

    I would quite happily pay money for more shanties I absolutely love that trailer. You got to laugh in that Dev video joe specifically mentions QA then:

    Patch Notes v1.2.5 Ahoy pirates! We're in the second and final week of the Cursed Crews Bilge Rat Adventure! It's your last chance to ensure you have the pistol, Eye of Reach, blunderbuss and cutlass from The Wailing Barnacle weapon set. These weapons are only available for this Bilge Rat Adventure, so make sure they're in your inventory before they disappear from the shops! The Commendations, Doubloons, and Titles will still be available after the event ends, but the time-limited cosmetics will no longer be up for grabs. Patch 1.2.5 includes some updates to the barrel inventory system, key performance improvements, crash fixes and other fixes for known issues. Updates After feedback shared with us about the changes made to Barrels and inventory management in Patch 1.2.4, Design Director Mike Chapman gave further insight into why the changes were made and what the future holds for these systems. In Patch 1.2.5, we see the first of our quality of life improvements to the barrel system. These improvements to empty barrel identification and resource level increases are the first of many improvements we have planned for future updates. Bilge Rat Doubloons - To reward pirates who keep the skeleton scourge at bay, Doubloons for Cursed Crews Commendations will remain available to earn even after the Cursed Crews Bilge Rat Adventure ends. Empty Barrel Tooltip - Barrels now display a tooltip to indicate they are empty. Players will no longer need to interact with a barrel in order to discover there is nothing inside. Resource Balancing - Barrels are less likely to be found empty in the world, helping to reducing the time taken to restock ships. Quick Menu - The "Equipment" and "Resources" tabs within the Quick Menu have been swapped around as the "Resources" tab is used most commonly and should be the easiest to access. Here, Take This... Too! - Players can now give and share treasure items in the same way they give and take cannonballs and bananas! Gunpowder Kegs and the Chest of a Thousand Grogs will still need to be dropped to be exchanged. Fixed Issues Fixed issue with telescope clipping. Caged pigs can now be fed again! Bounty Skulls which are washed up on islands can now be picked up. The Hunter Jacket and Trousers now display with their correct colours. Solo sailor crews can now access Crew Privacy settings. Items placed at the bow of the Brigantine can now be picked back up. It is no longer possible to be kicked out of the ship's Cannonball Barrel inventory due to the ship's movement on the waves. Players hit by the Emote Cursed Cannonball will no longer experience the hit animation when the effect wears off. It is no longer possible to scroll through the UI on the Ship Selection Menu. Shooting a Blunderbuss underwater will now display the correct VFX. Known Issues Merchant Alliance crates on board a ship which sinks will not float to the surface and cannot be picked up. We have identified the issue and we're working on a fix. Gold Metal Skeletons cannot be affected by buckets of water. We have a fix for this coming in a future update.
