This week, I have one awesome feature in particular, an awesome new track from V-Axys, balancing changes, bug fixes, and quality of life changes.

  • Added Swarm Buildings - here's what they spawn, and here's what they look like.
  • Added music when you agro the S.H.A.R.K. He's even more terrifying now!
  • Cooldowns on items with virtually no cooldown will no longer show on the hotbar
  • Lasgun RAM consumption has been brought up, but it's still much less than most weapons on a per-second basis
  • Low level Jetpacks are a little less powerful
  • The tutorial building will now only spawn simple spiders
  • Tech Buildings (blue to light blue normal buildings) now spawn easier minibosses
  • Healing Items work again
  • Special Xmas Surprise next week! It should start tomorrow, and run for about a week.

Let me know how the balancing feels. Are you able to beat Finality? How's the SHARK?
