The e-mail announcing the update reads in full:
Hello Patterns Customer,
Our first update is right around the corner. We’re going to be updating to a bigger world, adding more shapes to find in the world and – based on your feedback – we’re adding the ability to place formations on your own creations as well as ours. We’re also fixing plenty of bugs.
Our plan is to update on Thursday October 18 on Steam. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
Thanks for all the great feedback and thanks again for being an early adopter of Patterns!
I’ll be looking forward to the update; things have been a trifle dull in Patterns land of late, as I’ve run out of shapes I can think of to build.
Hmmm… I feel a review update coming on as well – you have been warned! :).
