Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for August 16th, 2021, detailing all the changes that have happened since August 9th, 2021.

We’ve created a forum post asking the community for suggestions on how we can improve gameplay for players with certain conditions such as colorblindness, dyslexia, or anything else that might affect a players ability to use the standard presentation and controls of the game.
If you have any ideas or suggestions, and possible solutions on how to solve a particular issue, please check out the forum post here.
