Oberhaching, Germany, March 31st, 2022 – Dunes, sand and scorching heat. Thankfully you’ll find the occasional oasis to help you survive – until now. Because with crocodiles as new inhabitants in the relentless world of Starsand the danger scale is going through the roof.

The times, where an oasis promised a restful and relaxing place, are over. Don’t go into the water! Watch where you place your foot! If it is moving, it is no tree trunk!

In other words: The world of Starsand has changed forever. If you meet the croc while trying to sip some water or try to cool off, you should expect a tough fight – or turn around, get on your camel and run.

But if you emerge as the winner from the duel with the apex predator, you can look forward to some especially nutricious new ingredients. And what better place to prepare them than in the new fireplace, while you’re taking care of your wounds with freshly added bandages – some of the other additions in this update.
