After the primary week of the multiplayer’s beta, HopFrog regarded into getting a brand new improvement crew, however apparently, the codebase has grow to be very poorly coded and bloated so nobody desires to take it on.

That’s extra more likely to occur after we see one other Forager-related sport based mostly on some elements of the submit.
