A closed beta will be held March 24-31, and you can register here.

A list of new features included in the PC version are below:

  • Weapon switching: players can now switch between a primary and secondary weapon in game.
  • New Cat Guard enemies throughout Story Mode.
  • Steam Workshop integration for sharing user created levels.
  • Steam Inventory integration for trading: This allows users to trade and sell weapons, prisoners, gems and yarn via Steam.
  • X input, Direct Input, and Keyboard/Mouse support.

The developer said it is “updating and testing a bunch of items,” so there’s a possibility it may have to “adjust the beta start” should something arise.

Regardless, The Behemoth is still encouraging folks to sign up.
