Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

City of Beats » BIG UPDATE: New Weapon, Key Rebinding & More

Hey all, we’ve been working on this update for the past few weeks and are excited to finally release it!

Here’s what’s new & changed:

New Features
  • The Acid Linkgun is now available in the game once you’ve defeated the second district’s mini-boss! It shoots deadly acid beams that connect to enemies or burst them down, all while playing pleasant melodies. There’s also a new achievement that you’ll unlock when finishing a run with the Acid Linkgun.
  • Key Rebinding is now available in the Controls menu!
  • decreased HP of most bosses by up to 20%, as they were a bit too sponge-y
  • significantly increased the damage of projectiles reflected by your barrier, which is especially helpful against those beloved sniper enemies
  • slightly reduced Fragment & Gold Orb drops from enemies & Zeitgeber reward nodes
  • buffed lots of Efficiency and a few Defense upgrades
  • increased initial trait limit even further (400 -> 500)
  • your upgrade shockwaves can no longer be blocked by enemy barriers
  • some more weapon damage tweaks (based on tracked gameplay metrics)
Quality of Life
  • tweaked visibility & scale of some enemy attack indicators
  • added a warning message when closing the Extensions screen without having selected all your extensions
  • Barry (when available) is now literally standing in your way – if you still don’t talk to him, you’re a bad person
