    Another release livestream is upon us! The Release 56 Livestream is set for Friday August 3!

    All Avatars from around the world are welcome to join us in the livestream activities. We will be doing deep dives, answering questions, having sales, handing out prizes, and tracking towards stretch goals. At the suggestion of one of our players (Redfish) the theme for this livestream is Cosmos in honor of the comet which is making its closest approach during Release 56! All of the items will prominently display our Sun Magic, Moon Magic, or some other celestial symbol like stars.

    LIVESTREAM SCHEDULE (Central Time Zone)

    Monthly livestreams are on Twitch and include answers to your gameplay questions, world building tours, prize giveaways, sales on items, and more! Here is the schedule:

    • 3PM: Introductions
    • 3:30PM: Deep Dive 1: Player Owned Towns
    • 4:30PM: Q&A (+ more Ep 2 goodies)
    • 5:30PM: Deep Dive 2: Combat with Bosses (Aether Creatures, Unicorns, oh my!)
    • 6:30PM: Q&A
    • 7PM: Ending Announcements

    STRETCH GOALS (Cosmic Themed!)

    As a special bonus, we are offering funding rewards to any player that makes a minimum purchase of $5 during a twelve hour window during the day of the livestream, on August 3 from 12:00 PM to 11:59 PM CDT (Aug 3 17:00 to July 4 05:00 UTC). At the suggestion of one of our players (Redfish) the theme for this livestream is Cosmos in honor of the comet which is making its closest approach during Release 56! All of the items will prominently display our Sun Magic, Moon Magic, or some other celestial symbol like stars.[​IMG]

    All purchases during the twelve hour window will count towards the stretch goals, not just the four hours of the livestream!

    *Please keep in mind that stretch goal rewards take time to develop and will most likely not be available until Release 59 at the earliest. We will keep you updated!


    [​IMG]For every $2,500 contributed, all devs on camera have to dance, sing, or perform some other act of amazement.


    We will be having twelve hours of sales around the livestream from 12:00 PM to 11:59 PM CDT (July 6 17:00 to July 7 05:00 UTC)! Items in the following categories will be on sale at approx. 20% off. As noted above, all purchases during this time will count towards the stretch goals!

    We will be answering questions throughout the livestream, so submit them in the comments section below or on Discord chat during the event.

    Please do NOT post questions containing:

    • More than 3 questions in total (post all three in a single reply)
    • Bugs or other problems best posted in the bug forums
    • “When is this coming” or anything related to schedule (for those answers please refer to our quarterly updates or our post release plans)
    • Questions with more than a couple of sentences. Please keep them brief! We will likely understand the context of your interest, so just ask the question and we’ll be able to respond.

    For bug reports and extra idea suggestions, please use the forums for this purpose.

    A Final Thought: We see a LOT of repeat questions. Please consider reviewing one of the other missed question posts, previous monthly livestreams, livestream transcripts, and/or reading our Post Episode 1 plan post before posting a question. Your question might have already been answered.

    Watch @ShroudofAvatar updates throughout the day of the livestream. See you on Twitch!
