Dangerous Rays was originally released in 2014 as a prototype version. In 2015 after the release of the Alpha 17 update we have decided to reboot the game entirely and make a much more modern and scalable engine by collecting all the feedback received from the players to our advantage.
We are now working since 2015 on the Alpha 18 version that is going to introduce this new engine and will mark the real beginning of Dangerous Rays development. Do not expect much gameplay content when the Alpha 18 version is going to be released. This will be a long development process and we will work with the community and continue to add content to the game gradually by listening the players feedback as we have always done.
Estimated Release Date: 2020
