Alpha 1.5 is now available on all 4 platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux 32 and Linux 64).

Here's the changelist:

  • Added new level editor
  • Added new AI shape: pulsers
  • Added nicer effects on some powerups
  • Added auto-search for assets folder when it can't be located
  • Added vertical sync option to menu
  • Added achievement for popping an imploder straight away
  • Added about a year's worth of SFML updates
  • Added new music track
  • Added better random AI generation
  • Added visual aim assist helpers
  • Fixed crash on pressing cancel in the 'unsafe close' dialog
  • Fixed various shader problems on each platform
  • Windows: fixed taskbar icon
  • Linux: fixed input bugs in fullscreen & startup dialog boxes
  • Linux: changed vertical sync to default to on
  • Mac: released first build

See below for cross-platform goodness ;)

And here's a video of the new visual assist in this release:

I hope to start rounding things off and finishing the campaign from now on!

Unfortunately, errors are the very same. Rotion binary and sfml libraries require GLIBC_2.14, and libsfml-network requires 2.15.

Is this the updated build? AFAIK it hasn't been authorised yet. I forgot that it was Friday so it may be a day or two before Desura releases it.

Probably not :P
I misread your post, sorry. I thought that the game is updated already.
