I thought I'd work on Holes and the whole dungeon system a bit more today. Oh and I made the game roughly 10% more dickish and wrote the most beautiful explanation of all time for going down Holes.

I thought I'd work on Holes and the whole dungeon system a bit more today. For one thing, Holes that spawn in sand will always teleport you to Sand-Themed Dungeons. Also, in order to prevent yourself from falling through the universe, you now need to put down Ladders by clicking a Hole, and it'll look like this:

If you want the explanation why you don't die if Ladders exist then read this Official explanation:

Portals in Crawle are made of Sekaruium. Sekaruium only creates Sekaruium solution (which is the portal-entering substance in the middle) when it reacts with wood that is in a ladder-like shape. Because of this you can go through portals and not go through the universe and that's why not having a ladder will kill you.

You'll get this lovely message if you forget to place down a ladder:

Now, keeping up our reputation of making what most would consider as one of the most dickest games out there, there is a 1 in 50 chance that you will slip off the ladder and die before the ladder has reacted with the Sekaruium. You'll get this message:

That's about it. Good news though! Exams are starting to spread out more now and so I should have a load more free time ;].

Looking good so far mate. Although, if you don't mind me pointing out a small grammatical error that does't seem right to me. I think it should be "you managed to slip and fall through the universe." Or, "You have managed to slip and you fell through the universe." Either of those would be fine. It's not a big thing, I'm just a little picky about that sort of stuff. Otherwise, it's looking good. Keep up the nice work.
