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.

Patch Notes 1.3 Patience and Puzzler

New Game

Added a puzzle game within Dr. Professor Scientist’s Weapons Testing Facility. You can check it out in the main menu.


We now have a patreon where you can get various benefits. Of course you’ll get access to our games before anyone else. We will be making more remixes that won’t be available through DPSWTF.

Chill Music Option

A chill hop track list for those who enjoy some softer tunes while they play. Find it in the pause menu.


Game is overall as fast as before, but to dedicated players the early game tempo will feel a bit slower. We have doubled the slot activation speed from 0.1 to 0.2 & Lowered the enemy amounts to match.
The Doctor realized that in the end even though moving through hordes of enemies is satisfying, it is harder to analyze the results on the run. Now with fewer enemies and slower fire rates everything matches in better.

Now you can see the mayhem you cause and build it up to the crazy machines that you used to. And as some of you immediately think, yes this is a massive buff to the Rapid Fire component in the early game.

Quality of Life

A few big changes other than the core of the patch effects of better visibility to effects we have:
– Autonuke
If you would lose the game while having a nuke available it will nuke first, giving you another wave to work with.
– Highlighted Triples
You can now highlight three of the same component at the same tier, to see if they are ready for upgrading. Both as a clickable toggle and activated on the L button
– Hell Circle Tooltips
Now you you can see and read what the hell circles do when hovering over the skulls during gameplay. We may have had one one disabled on accident. So there is a new hell circle to play around with as well.
