Ahoy Mateys!

We are very excited to announce that Salt will be leaving early access next week! We also wanted to let you know that the price will be increasing from $14.99 to $19.99 upon full release.

It has been a crazy journey over the past few years creating this adventure and an honor to have such a dedicated and helpful community. The overall response to the game has been incredibly positive and supportive and for that we are thankful.

If you don't know, we're a small team at Lavaboots of only three members. When we set out to make Salt we knew it would be a big task but we loved the idea of creating a massive world for players to explore. We knew early on that we wanted feedback and help from the community so we chose to release onto Steam Early Access. Since then Salt has changed a lot.

Here's a look at just some of things we've added since early access release:

- Main quest line
- Over 50 side quests
- Multiple quest characters 
- Merchants and mysterious places to discover 
- Hundreds of items, weapons, and armor
- Different island types
- New enemy types and wildlife
- Boss battles
- Secrets
- Multiple new ship types
- Weather 
- Multiplayer

In addition to that and a whole lot of other changes, we also added steam achievements, cloud saving, and a lot of polishing and bug fixes.

Next week we'll also be pushing a small update with some fun new changes including macros for emotes, a new ship, a mountable compass boat upgrade, healing arrows, and some bug fixes. We will also be keeping an eye out for new bugs and issues that arise and fixing those even after release.

Again, we are incredibly thankful for your support and are happy to finally be releasing Salt as a full game! Thank you for reading and thank you for participating in the journey.
