This update is known as the return of Two Hours One Life following eight months of uncertainty after the unexpected departure of the founder.
This version was made up of a lot of the content that had come in the update prior to it in late 2018 excluding any of the code changes that had been made but including progress that had been made by community and team members that had begun work on a spin off (2HOL Reborn) during the period of uncertainty.
Two Hours One Life as you know it today would not be the same without the work thanks to those who went their own way, pushing through the tough times and eventually reformed as one with the original project.
