Enjoy Yourself or Else

It's time to have fun! And if you don't want to have fun, too bad, because you're being forced to. In a free updated to Oxygen Not Included, you can now have mandatory fun.

Titled Meep's Mandatory Recreation Pack, this update adds in plenty of ways for your little space survivors to have fun, if they haven't horribly died by now. Which, to be fair, is a possibility. Several new items are now available that let you watch them play. They can get a sauna or hot tub to let some steam out, grab a soda at the new soda fountain, and even take a ride in a vertical wind tunnel so they can pretend they're flying. All this and more are now available so you can have fun. Or else.

 

In addition to this, there's a new feature called "overjoyed reactions." These are bonuses that characters get after they've had oh so much fun, and it lets them perform better at certain tasks. Some of these reactions include "balloon artist" and "sticker bomber." If you want specifics on what they do, you're going to have to play more of the game to find out. The developers have also made various bug fixes and improved performance issues that Oxygen Not Included has been having.

If all of this appeals to you, then it's a free update that you can grab right now. If you're looking for something a little more serious, the developers said they're currently working on a bigger update for the game. So don't worry, as it sounds like more oxygen will be required in the future.

 

Oxygen Not Included is currently available on PC.

Are you enjoying Oxygen Not Included? Are you going to take some mandatory recreation hours? Have you farted in a hot tub recently? Let us know in the comments below!
