Hi! We hope you've had an absolutely fantastic June! ☁️🥰✨
Welcome to the FIRST edition of our monthly newsletter! We're kickstarting a brand-new series called PuffPals: Monthly Digest! From updates on PuffPals: Island Skies game development to the latest Fluffnest news, we’ll break down everything you need to know about the past month! Let's dive right in, shall we? ✨💌
🎮⭐ ALPHA ACCESS ⭐🎮
Alpha testing is still on track for late this summer (August-September)! Oh, and that's not all! We'll be opening up pre-orders again soon! If you or a friend missed out on alpha access, there will be another opportunity to jump right into the fun and excitement! 🥳💖
🗺️🥳 WEBSITE REVAMP + ROADMAP 🥳🗺️
This month, we revamped the Fluffnest.games website!! 🥳 Along with the new design, we have also released a roadmap, where you can check out our current game development progress and future goals!
