Version 2.2.3 Incoming

Thanks to your feedback, and about 48 hours of highly caffeinated, hair-loss inducing digging around in the code, we have finally traced down the issues that some of you have been plagued with.

Saving and loading Custom Key Bindings and Button Bindings should now work on ANY system.

Steam achievements should now DEFINITELY work for everyone, and you should earn any retroactively when you start the game (enter the map screen).

Let me just take a moment to apologize sincerely to those who have purchased the game and had to deal with these problems. Its harder that you would think to be able to test for every conceivable scenario and setup, and even harder when you're a tiny development team with a tinier budget.

...and when people complain that something is not working, but you can't reproduce it yourself, its frustrating and easy to throw your hands up in the air and ignore the complaints.

Anyway, sorry, again, for these issues taking so long to get resolved. I hope this fixes it for everyone, but, if you still see any issues after the update, please leave a comment here, or email me directly at tim@axolstudio.com

I will do whatever I can to make it right.

P.S:

You can talk to me IN PERSON at Indy Pop Con coming up July 7-9!

P.P.S:

This game is now almost 10 years old (the original flash version anyway). I've learned so much in these years and I'll be working on a sort of post-mortem/retroactive thing that I'll be posting soon. Keep an eye out for that on all of our social medias and website: axolstudio.com

P.P.S.S:

When I'm not pulling my hair out over these bugs, I've been hard at work on something new that I can't wait to unveil... hopefully in a month or so I can spill the beans, so keep an eye out for that, too.

Anyway, enjoy the game!

Update Version 2.2.2

Hey everyone, just here to tell you that we've dropped Version 2.2.2!

This should hopefully fix some issues with achievements not being registered (you should retroactively earn any when you start the game), and keybindings not being saved. Hopefully. Plus, a few other minor fixes.

If you still have any issues with this new version, please let us know, and we'll try to fix them ASAP.

Thanks, and Happy Blasting!
