We Need to go Deeper Wiki


Since We Need to go Deeper was put through an Early Access process, the development of the game has been elaborately described by the developers in the change logs. This page lists all Versions of the game and the big change it went through. There are 3 kinds of updates: Monthly Updates, which are the largest and happen each month, Crate Updates, a now discontinued set of updates that happened between Monthly Updates, and Content Drops, which are very minor updates that happen every week and that sometimes come with small Previews on the next Monthly Update.
