Version 1.01 - Sound fixes & OSX achievements

Hello space-debt warriors!

Just released version 1.01 to all platforms. It's a bug fix release with achievements now working on OSX and some missing sounds added back in.
So, yeah. Sorry about those bugs making it through to release. But they're fixed now, so that's good!

As always, bug reports are very appreciated. Hit me up via support@mutatedsoftware.com or post something to the community page :D

The OST is on its way shortly as well. The music was all done by the fantastic Charlie Armour. Charlie worked from such descriptions as "It's like an industrial space trucking level" and "A college vibe, but future-y". That said, I'd recommend that level of instruction for working with artists. The work that Charlie and Maki (illustrator) did from just the basic themes was better than anything I could have described in detail.

That's all for now. Thanks for playing, and keep on truckin' (space-truckin').
