Will There Be More Forager Updates in the Future?
HopFrog, S.A. has already planned out their updates for the foreseeable future. So, yes, there will be more updates.
Dating back to May 2, 2019, HopFrog, S.A. issued their battle plan for the future of Forager. As stated within their Steam message, you can see what the company has in store within the list provided below.
- Accessibility options are nice but we need to do more/better and secret options should be moved to the ingame config menus
- Core gameplay is addictive but it ends too soon (~20 hours and then nothing to do anymore)
- The game’s pacing feels wrong (Automation and Droids can make things TOO easy, some Gear items are too cheap while others are too expensive, there is idle downtime way too often while you wait for things to craft or spawn, etc)
- Combat is not challenging/rewarding
- Some quality of life changes are needed (inventory sorting, better save backups, removal of sound stacking for Mining Rods, etc)
- Our updates from now on will focus on increasing gameplay length and adding replayability!
