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.

Strafe: Gold Edition » MUTATOR MADNESS

Hey Killers!
We have another update hot and ready from of the oven. This update brings some new content and fixes as well as some QoL changes for our speed running community.

We also looked at the data and made some difficulty changes that should help new players without effecting veterans much at all.
