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.

Impaler » Enhancing Gravity

Hey all!

Welcome to the Update #4.5! In this “.5” update, we’ll be tinkering with existing systems, rather than adding new content. This time we’re taking a look at the gravity, since the floatiness of the Player Character has been coming up pretty frequently since the launch.

To add some more oomph to the air controls, we’re introducing the wall jump ability. Just press JUMP when touching a wall mid air, and you’ll bounce from it ninja style!

Apart from that we’re taking a look at other gameplay elements, mainly from the balance perspective. and adding some magic touches here and there.

Check out the full patch notes:
