Weekly Dev Log for December 13th, 2021

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for December 13th, 2021, detailing all the changes that have happened since December 6th, 2021. Note: Devs that don’t appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn’t need to be detailed.

Last Dev Log of 2021

Next week begins our holiday break at PixelTail Games, and we’ll be back in full development on January 3rd, 2022.

As such, the next Weekly Dev Log will be January 10th, 2022!

December 2021 Condo Contest IN PROGRESS!

The theme this time, just like last year, is Winter and/or Winter Festivity!

As always, feel free to interpret that how you see fit, as long as the connection to the theme is clear. Desolate snowy landscapes, snowed-in cabins, winter wonderlands, Christmas villages- anything wintery can work, so have fun with it!

The deadline to submit your entries is January 2nd, 2022 at 11:59PM CT.

You can read more about the contest here.

Accessibility Suggestions

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.

Tick tock, Mr. Caboose…

It’ll be released later today, I wasn’t feeling all that great yesterday so I didn’t get around to it.

All good, feel better soon Cabussy!
