  • You can now go back to the main menu from inside the game (wow, right?)

  • Creating an in-game entity editor
  • Components are totally data-driven, loading straight from JSON
  • Fixed the flocking algorithm, it mostly works
  • Upgraded to Awesomium 1.7
  • A number of bug fixes along the way, including those from 6.0 to 6.1:
  • Fixed a bug that would cause the game to crash if you had a missile selected when it impacted its target
  • Fixed a visual glitch, causing range circles to not scale properly while constructing Laser Towers, Laser Miners, and Missile Towers
  • Added Music back in. Let the artists: Sufista and Bignic know what you think!
