Unity Resolution Selector on by Default

Many people were experience the dreaded Unity "Black Screen" bug when launching the game. To fix this from happening, I decided to enable the Unity Resolution Selector by default, which will prevent the black screen from occurring.

Two Point Zero Point Zero

Holy SHIT! We have an update!!!

You know me. I won’t stop. Can’t stop. The Demon demanded another round of polish and tweaks, so I did. I bashed my keyboard until the following things were completed:

-Updated game to latest version of Unity and dependent frameworks (you probably don’t care about this)
-Players can now shoot when they are snared via the Crown of Thorns tarot card
-Tarot card pickup sprite has been made larger to stand out more
-Holy water grenades now bounce off of shields
-Secret passages in the Cemetery arenas are more visually distinctive
-Dashing has a slightly longer cooldown time
-Dashing into another player will push them
-The Possessed tarot card will now cause you to auto fire but will not cause you to be pushed back
-Game winning score is now MORE DRAMATIC
-Volume dials have been added to the pause menu
-Tarot card descriptions have been added to the tarot card selection menu screen
-End of Times Hardcore mode now features friendly fire. Good luck >:)
-Fire particles have been improved (I think!)
-New shield equip/holster animations
-More sound effects and feedback throughout

However, outside of game breaking bugs, this will represent the last major update to the game. I know, the four of you that care are heartbroken, but we all must move on.

“Demon's with Shotguns looks to be a very competent contender in the local multiplayer genre.”

“Our experience playing Demons with Shotguns has been at once electrifying and charming. It calls forth shouts, great big smiles, laughter and large doses of healthy competition.”
4 1/2 stars – The Nerd Stash

“A veritable blast of laughter and shotgun shelling from the other room made me want to drop the cheese and run to the living room.”
