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.

HellEscape » Huge refactor to collision detection and rendering!

Main stuff:
– I made a big refactor to collision detection that increased performance by a lot (at least for me) + made many monsters collision a lot more accurate.
– In addition, I made the collision detection while on mounts more accurate.
– Also optimized rendering.
– Added ‘Brutality’ mechanism – special points you gain while having a “multi kill” title in the corner. Its not yet used, currently its just a counter in stats, but I have some plans with it.

Anyway since I made a lot of changes to collision and rendering, please let me know if you encounter any new bugs as a result. Thanks!

All changes:
– Added one more level to ‘Quality Food’ powerup.
– Made camera movement smoother.
– Made Lava River slightly stronger.
– Made Time Stop last a bit less.
– Added optimizations in collision detection.
– Optimized rendering static objects.
– Added Brutality mechanism.
– Improved collision accuracy when on big mount.
– Improved some enemies collision shape.
– Increased enemies melee multiplier over time.
