Version 1.06 is Live!

For this update, we have been working on translating all our players' gameplay feedback into the game. We took the forum suggestions and talked to other players privately and the main issue was that the game needed to be more fast paced and smoother. This update goes in that direction: Runs have gotten faster and we're clocking full game speedruns under 20 minutes with the new gameplay tweaks. We also found out that some streamers and YouTubers that had problems with auto copyright claims from some band's labels. To avoid this we made a "Youtube safe mode", accessible from the main menu that changes the songs with copyright claims for shop's songs so streamers and YouTubers can upload their gameplays, so if you plan to stream/make a video, make sure you enable this mode!

-Added Traditional and Simplified Chinese localization
-Added "YouTube safe mode"
-Initial damage increased
-Starting guitars removed from guitars pool
-Premium chest won't drop simple items (heart, key or bomb)
-Decreased probability of simple items on trap rooms
-Improved Lava trap rooms
-Player doesn't stop on clear room animation
-Cyborg boss charges sped up
-Minions life readjusted
-Bosses life readjusted
-LP guitars now work differently. They use a big shot instead of a spread.
-Increased speed of some bosses shots
-Increased damages of some minions.
-To show that a summon is ready now it blinks

-Ottavio mode 3 repeating the same attack
-Dragon repeating attacks
-On Level 03 big rooms, player sometimes gets outside camera
-Ottavio gets stuck aiming without shooting playing with Abigail
-If you watch all the credits without skipping, game gets in a weird first level state instead of going to menu
-Steam achievements recording but not showing progress (eg 10/100).
-Beer summoner throwing beers outside of room and blocking game
-Challenge room enemies receiving damage when they're on the appear animation
-Timo big attack gets stuck after death
-Dragon boss meteorite attack keeps firing after he's dead

Let us know what you think! We want to hear from new players and Metal Tales veterans alike.
We really hope you enjoy this new version of the game.
