We have now submitted 0.7.6. This version mostly fixes things for Realms. Now back to working on 0.8.0. :)Well it looks like 0.7.6 has bin submitted which means we should have it next week for ios users. For Android, it should already be released. I recommend not updating to 0.7.6 because it comes with a bunch of single player bugs.

Slowly your memories come back up.
A rumble of gunfire and then?...
Darkness... It wraps around you and try to pull you down...
Down into the infinite depths of the ocean...
You try to repress the horrible memories and think clearly what happened.
There it hits you like a bolt.
They attacked the ship!!!
At that moment you realize that your raft was flushed through the flow pretty close to an island approachd.
´´Saved!!´´ You think.
You swim to the island and there you find a house with a diary by a buddy of yours.
