  1. A run-through on this version felt good. Usually when I play, I feel like I’m doing pretty good, and then at some point I just get mauled. This time, I actually knew when my days were numbered and I was hobbling along being really cautious until I died.

    I think that was a better way to die than just “i’m awesome i’m awesome i’m awesome i’m dead”. Now it’s more like “i’m awesome i’m awesome i’m awesome i’m screwed i’m screwed but maybe not maybe i’ll make it maybe if i can just never mind i’m dead”.

    • As user journeys go, I have to say that is pretty much perfect. Behold the power of analytics!

  2. 0.12 download not working using Internet explorer 0.11 still works though

    • I don’t see any issues on my end, but I did upload 0.12 on a slightly different tech stack than usual. I’ve reuploaded with my normal toolset; everything looks to be fine on my end. If it is not working still, let me know.

  3. Another suggestion. It would be nice if all of the perks that unlocked new perks would be marked somehow. Sometimes a perk is more desirable just because I know it leads to another one. For example, taking the shotgun perk leads to more shotgun upgrades. It’s like the “shotgun perk tree”. That one is obvious because it’s a weapons perk, but then there’s something like Aura. That leads to other vision perks (as I understand it), but it’s not labelled. For the longest time I didn’t realize that Aura was required to open the other vision perks, and I never really took it because it didn’t really seem that great.
