Patch Notes 3/03/2023: Work Jam

The goal of today’s meeting was to touch base on the progress in the various departments for Taco Cat as well as get some more work done. Along with that, we have some…


TacoCat Playtest 2!

We’re going to have our second playtest next week on the 10th. It is going to be in-person at DARC 308.

Community Night

For our upcoming community night this Sunday, we will be hiking to Painted Barrels. It will start at 5pm at the DARC 308 Skybridge.

Development Hiatus

With the Winter Quarter coming to a close, we’re announcing the Taco Cat Work Hiatus. All this means is that work on Taco Cat will cease on Week 10 of Winter before it picks up again back in Spring. Even if you do want to continue development of the game, it is very important to take breaks and prevent burnout. So please, take this time off and enjoy yourselves!

Along with the traditional announcements, we also have the department progress updates!
