  • Fixed Windowed mode resetting when entering options
  • Fixed but still working on Menu responsiveness
  • Removed Right side statistics as upgrading is changing the next mini-update.
  • Added groundwork for the BIG UPDATE and roguelike mission experience

Build 8 Plans (Most of which is in already)

  • New Enemy Sprites all around. Each enemy has been given new sprites that show facing, ability for squad coloring, and special abilities.
  • New Enemy : The Shadow - Shooters are a nuisance, some of them can become invisible! The Shadow
  • New Enemy : The Vampire - Another Shooter Variant which doesn't shoot lasers, but rather drains your PROXY's energy.
  • New PROXY power up upgrade system. The old system will be gone in place of upgrades that have an immediate effect rather than waiting for a cumulative effect.
  • Improved Level Graphics : More variations and detail to each level. The game will definitely not look the same when this is done!
  • Basic Statistic systems. Keep track of shots fired, enemies destroyed, damage taken, and much more. Displayed when you die or complete the levels.
  • All new levels. In order to show off the new level graphics and enemies, all levels in the arcade mode will be thrown out and completely revised!

I don't understand why you guys sell your games when they aren't even full products yet. Why in the world would you /sell/ a game that's in ALPHA? /Alpha/?

It's a demo. You're literately selling a demo.

Don't you want as many people as possible to play-test it? Don't you want as much feedback as possible?

When devs sell their games that are still in alpha/beta, it gives off a big ole' warning bell that you guys are just trying to make a quick buck.
