We Wish You a Merry Cheatmas! ^̮^

Hello! Recently, we have uploaded a new version of dead_file.exe. Today`s update contains new important improvements and new content! And, of course, spirit of christmas! ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ

First feature is the most important:
We have replaced all objects and facilities in the test rooms to the their snow made analogue. First version of them was made from bones of our dead test subjects. Enjoy this knowledge! • ◡•

New game mode:
We have added new public level called DeathHall (you can play it in the Public Levels menu). This level has got unique gameplay, which turns platfromer into runner! (~˘▾˘)~

New public level:
Besides of DeathHall public level, we have added a new level specially for Christmas - DEAD MOROZ (check it in the Public Levels menu). This level contains spirit of christmas and surprise at the end. Don't want to spoil, just check it! (˚▽˚)

Leaderboards:
You can submit your record achieved in the DeathHall level and check it in the TOP here or in the game. But remember, that normal scores aren't worthy of respect, because leaderboard is only for the unfair submittions! Hack it and send 1000000000 scores record! Now! Immediately! (╯°□°)╯

Game resolution improvements:
Now you can switch game to the windowed mode, just press F6. If you want to enter fullscreen mode again - press F5 button.

Optimization:
We have fixed some optimization issues on Windows 10.

Minor bug fixes:
  • Halloween trash bug was removed
  • Keyboard now works even with connected gamepad
  • First level hints were improved

That's all! We hope that you'll enjoy this update!
And...have a nice Christmas holidays! (ᵔᴥᵔ)
