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.
Steam Leaderboard support has been integrated into Tower Unite, a leaderboard manifest was created internally to map these leaderboards, and the code for downloading and sending leaderboard data was completed.

Milestones, Badges, and Stat support was added to the Collection Book. Sort and category support was integrated, and stamp animations were created.
