V0.3.12959 was an update released September 25th, 2020. This update started the closed beta, which was only accessible to Kickstarter backers of the Early Adopter tier or higher, and was the first update with patch notes.

The closed beta (this version) was later released to all backers of the "Just the Game, Please!" tier or higher on November 2nd, 2020 as a result of a delay of the Early Access release to January.
