Also, with this patch I started using unit tests so that should help improve bugginess over time and generally prevent something old breaking without me noticing.

For the next patch I hope to do less techy stuff and more just content adding.

Anyway as always if you want to keep up with development have a look at the games website: or follow me on twitter @Zinnusl.
