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.

Xmas Apocalypse » Content Update 1.0.4

Thanks everyone for being patient while the work on this beast of an update took way longer than I had anticipated. 3 new skills! 1 new character! 3 perks! And a lot of fixes and changes to improve the game.

I also fixed a couple things with the save system, which unfortunately resulted in the nailgun being locked again even when you had unlocked it previously. So if you already purchased it, I apologize that it has to get unlocked again. I have reduced the price a bit to make up for it. These changes were necessary for more weapons to be added in the future.
