They actually placed top 3 globally, which is no small achievement. They blew past their last year’s funds raised at $112,206. They also shared some sneak peaks of upcoming content, including visuals from Genesis Part 2 DLC. This included the teaser trailer reveal. They also shared some Creatures, Items, Structures, and the Environment/Biome on stream. If you’re interested in the art and other visual sneak peaks, check out the blog post here.

The team thanked their community and sponsors for the record fundraising,

“With the help of our community and ExtraLife team, we placed Top 3 globally and raised over $180,000 for sick children and beat all of our past records by a significant amount, including last year's jaw dropping $112,206.35! We couldn't have done this without the help of our generous community, our amazing sponsors, and our dedicated community who signed up to join our team.”
