Accessibility Suggestions

The shooting gallery looks amazing so far! Some portions of it remind me of the old Halloween ride on GMTower. Can’t wait! Keep up the great work!

Midori Pog, Also i got confused with the word remaster and the thought it meant a remake for a second. Lol

I see what you mean. I guess they are essentially re-doing the art style of the map so I see what they mean as well.

Love the new RC camera, differently less nauseating.
