Swirve Blog: Age 68 Changes

Here are the changes for Age 68. Thank you to everyone that gave feedback, we have made some changes based on your ideas to mechanics and races/personalities. We’ve also decided to not go with any change to science. When we looked at it in more detail we decided that a more drastic overhaul to science was required and that’s something we will address in a future age.

Age 68 Freeze Start: Saturday 16th April at 6PM GMT
