I need to stop with these yearly releases, buut it's that time again.

I spent quite a lot of time with front end and polish this time around. Hopefully it shows!
Overall, increased game speed and gravity.
Added a new weapon "Rocket Jumper", which is exactly how it sounds: Utilize explosions as mobility!
Also I'm experimenting with controlling grapple hook (rope) with the mouse. Let me know what you all think of that.
Non-QWERTY keyboards are now supported, as well as 4k monitors!

Random levels are now a thing too:

Breaking the yearly mould! It's another update!

Last week I had a successful multiplayer game with 6 people! I'm ecstatic to bring it to you all!
While not fully finished, also included in this build is WIP rope wrapping logic:



The majority of this update, however, is multiplayer and misc polishing!
Windows tray will flash when it is your turn and the game isn't selected, and I added keybind presets to the options menu, for those who have been requesting controls similar to W:A. The game also no longer requires a mandatory restart after a match is finished! Jumping behaves much more like it does in W:A too.
