Alpha 39[edit | edit source]

New Features[edit | edit source]

  • Traits and Reward Items can be removed from their respective in-game pools, so they will no longer appear if you don’t want them to once they’re unlocked. There is a minimum number of items/traits that you must have in the pool, which increases the more you unlock.
  • Trackpad Mode - Attack in the direction you're facing, rather than the cursor position. Added this because trackpad aiming is near impossible. You can finally play on an airplane. Can be toggled in the control settings menu.
  • Added optional on-screen timer, which can be turned on from Gameplay Settings. Good for speedrunning.
  • Added option in Gameplay Settings to place Player Identifier circle underneath the player in single-player mode

UI / Controls[edit | edit source]

  • Another attempt at fixing the “can’t scroll through in-game menus” issue that pops up occasionally with the gamepad. Let me know if this still happens. I’m not talking about the main menu, just the in-game menus like the buttons that appear when you interact with something, and the end-of-level Trait selection

  • Game should do a better job of figuring out which gamepad should be assigned to which player without the user having to manually go in and assign them

Alpha 29f (7/18/17)[edit | edit source]

I wanted to release this build because it includes a fix that I think might solve some of the issues with multiplayer level switches that people are having. Please see this thread for information on how you can help me solve these issues.

This build also includes a bunch of other fixes that I haven't had time to write up. I'll include those in the patch notes for Alpha 30, still scheduled for next week.

Alpha 29g (7/20/17)[edit | edit source]

Alright, one more! I might have a fix for issues that people were having with generic gamepads not working properly. If you've been having gamepad troubles, try this and let me know how it goes. Note that you will probably need to rebind most of your controls.

For everyone else, all your gamepad bindings will be reset in this build -- sorry!

Controller problems? Go to the Settings -> Control Setup -> Gamepad Setup -> Restore Defaults.

If that doesn't work, try the first answer in Troubleshooting

Industrial

The bulk of this update deals with new content for the Industrial levels.

Park

I’ll be starting work on the Park levels very soon. They’re essentially the game’s version of the grassy/outdoor theme. The next bi-weekly update might be a fairly minor one, because I’ll be knee-deep in prepping these new levels. It might be a couple of updates before they’re officially “open for business”. Taking suggestions now!
