There is a new entry on the Life Preserving Information page on the FunAndPrettyThings website.
In the latest update, Howard tells Megan that he had made more changes to the Survival Simulation game, adding a "research" job that will help extend supplies.
Each successful research job performed will give a boost to your health, moral, or one of your resources.
UPDATE: Someone has already broken 1000 days with this new update, and Howard has already noticed, and posted another update:
I'll start compiling the research here, if you see anything new, post it in the comments.
Not every research job is successful...
