Arcade Spirits v1.02

Welcome to Arcade Spirits v1.02! We've added a big feature, changed a few things, and fixed up a bunch of minor issues along the way...
  • The Home Arcade Documentary is now available from the Prizes menu! This interactive documentary hosted by Naomi explains how you (yes, you!) can build or buy your own multi-purpose arcade machine and really get your game on!
  • Modified one of Percy's endings to add some ambiguity. (Mouseover to reveal this spoiler if you've already finished the game...) It felt too punishing to have him simply die if you didn't befriend him. Our game promotes positivity and this stuck out weirdly. Now, it's simply left ambiguous. Enjoy your retcon!
  • By popular demand, added Pizza Facts to the end of each episode! Thank you for subscribing to Pizza Facts!
  • Adjusted the 'Basic' style user interface for improved readability and accessibility.
Minor fixes:
  • Fixed a crash when using "They" pronouns and dating Naomi.
  • Fixed more instances of QueenBee's costume being incorrect.
  • Fixed unlockable Juniper image to the main menu extras.
  • Fixed Mateo's full name being misspelled in Level 03.
  • Adjusted some language for sensitivity.
  • Improved comedic timing on some lines.
  • Simplified Iris's initial explanation of Fist of Discomfort.
