    • Yes, this means the save files from previous builds will not work! We have included a save file with everything unlocked EXCEPT for the new items to compensate. Sorry!
  • Health bars now display more intuitively
    • Previously: Red bar represented first 3000 health, orange bar the next 3000, and the yellow bar the rest. This meant that the yellow bar could hold much more health than either orange or red bar
    • Now: Red, orange, and yellow represent a third of the total health
