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 » PATCH 5 AND THE FURIOUS

Hey Killers,
We’re going to shift our focus on more meaningful additions. We will still be working on fixes and optimizations but we are experimenting with a “Training mode” that would help new players having a hard time with STRAFE®’s difficulty learn how to play as intended, with a lot of movement and strafing.

Additionally we would like to start work on the save feature but have no idea how long it will take to crack that nut so it will come when it’s ready. If it works this would allow you the freedom of exiting the game and returning to your run until you die.
