Funny story about a butter-knife and our wonderful artist. Long story short the butter-knife won.

On the brightside our artist is right-handed and we also do happen to have a wonderful update ready for everyone this week.

-Fixed Bug with old sound libraries causing issues on 64-bit machines.
-Fixed Game state would not reset correctly when starting a new game after losing.
-Added New mob Cow.
-Added New mob Holy Cow.

And as a wonderful added bonus this week (assuming you catch this news post on time) we are live streaming work on Alpha 20.

For those who unfortunately missed out on the live stream, we will be working on tool tips and tutorials for our next update. Yes, we will be doing a video tutorial on how to play. Something to look forward to for those who still have no idea what they are doing.

Yeah we are aware of the issues and Garret has been attempting to fix it every update. Unfortunately neither of us actually have a mac we can test it on and the one individual that is play testing it on mac has been getting random memory leaks unfortunately :-/

Yup, a butter knife. It may have been less damaging for him to have simply used a razor. That way, there would have been less blunt trauma.
