Among some of the biggest changes are:
Detailed the city
An included Mac and Linux releases
Improved animations and more interactions
Touched up and edited player
Completed prelude to the story
So much optimizing it hurts
Removal of old culling system(nothing randomly disappears)*
This next release comes after lots of hard work polishing the game up and incorporating the full story into the game** After this release there might be another small update or two, but mainly I can expect to release the Beta to a few testers in order to see when a final release can be set.
*Might affect performance on some computers
**The next set of releases will continue to have small updates for tweaks and changes, no major release is set for Beta. No future updates will include any more of the story until the game is released.
