Version 0.82 released


Hello everyone!

We have finally updated to Unity Engine version 2017.4.2! Performance should be a lot better now on top of our optimizations for object pooling. What does that mean for you? Smoother gameplay! With this update we have added some additional polish to the game - spikes no longer get stuck in obstacles and we've done a pass on gameplay camera polish.

All of these changes would have been published some time later with gameplay changes, but we wanted to become compliant with GDPR. During your gameplay, we use Unity Analytics to track basic outlines of player progress - at which level one has died, how much nutrition did it have. This helps us to improve gameplay and quickly adjust difficulty curve between updates to keep the demo as playable as possible.  Without analytics we wouldn't get such consolidated feedback and act quickly enough. Feel free to disable analytics by clicking Privacy button down in the main menu screen or in Options menu.
