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.

Cosmo Rider » Update 0.5.1: Difficulty Levels & Research Screen

Hello Riders,

New update adds:

Difficulty Levels and World Progression

  • Completely reworked the scale and progression of the game world. There are now 4 Galaxies (4 difficulty levels) x 3 Solar Systems (based on the number of Bosses) x 16 stages, totaling 192 stages.
  • AI unit attributes and enemy spawns now improve between Galaxies. In next updates there will be unlocked new enemy types and challenges in addition to difficulty scaling.
  • Progress is now permanently saved after each Galaxy, allowing new runs to start from the last reached Galaxy.

Research Screen and Meta Progression

  • Research new weapons, modules, and their mods to prepare for challenges across all Galaxies.
  • Research can be done at the beginning of a new run and between Solar Systems. And new items researched will start appearing in the current and future runs.

Additional Changes:

  • Breaking Changes: The save file structure has been updated. Old saves will no longer work with this version.
  • Added a new Radiation-Accumulation mod for the Radiation-gun.
  • Various balancing adjustments and bug fixes for a smoother gaming experience.
  • Fixed the UI for 4:3 aspect ratio monitors
  • And More: Various other minor improvements, optimizations, and bug fixes have been implemented to enhance overall gameplay quality.

Thank you for your support and enjoy the new update!
