A little update

September 1

Hi everybody!
I've pushed out an update that fixes one cause of slowdown for some users. Also if the game crashes when you quit, please delete the "steam_api.dll" file located in the game's folder (Steam\steamapps\common\RBS). This file is no longer included in the game files so if you delete or reinstall the game you won't need to remove this file.

Cheerio, and have a good un,
- James @ Boss Baddie

Really Big Sky is a very colorful game and really easy to understand.Highly satisfying - provided your reflexes are sharp! If you like hard twin-sticks shooters and can handle a lot of visual distraction, Really Big Sky delivers the goods. It has a great soundtrack, randomly generated levels that keep the game fresh and funny narration. Really Big Sky is also visually stunning and the controls are easy to get used to.While the game doesn't have a lot of different baddies and bosses, it mixes and matches them randomly so that every game is different and always challenging. This game is worth the purchase.
