The Away Team to get Lost Exodus update on October 22nd

Underflow Studios has lined up The Away Team's upcoming free update, Lost Exodus, to launch via Steam and Itch.io on October 22nd.

"The game has always been about teamwork, exploration and overcoming misunderstanding," said Studio Director, Michael Brune.

"With this patch we are finally able to deliver on some of the key design pillars the game set out back in 2011, and add in some new surprises. I look forward to getting it into players hands and seeing their reactions."

Lost Exodus both polishes and builds upon The Away Team's choice-driven, real-time space exploration gameplay through new additional content, crew experience system and Steam Workshop support.

The Lost Exodus update will include:

  • Expanded story content that raises the game's mission content to over 120,000 words
  • Enhanced sector exploration with new random event missions and asteroid fields
  • A new crew role experience system
  • A new unlockable character with their own story arc to explore
  • Over 50 “memento” items for crewmembers to collect
  • A new character editor with Steam Workshop integration
  • Improved sprite rendering
  • Clearer text and an optional dyslexic-friendly font

"With Lost Exodus we've really been working toward three main goals," said programmer- writer-artist Josh "Cheeseness" Bush.

"To make space exploration more interesting, give more weight to player decisions, and have the Argo - the ship or 'body' of the AI that you play as - feel a lot more present."

The Away Team: Lost Exodus will be available on Linux, Mac and Windows as a free update for all existing and future The Away Team owners on October 22nd via Steam or Itch.io.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
