This month, we’re running a “Night Out (or In)” themed condo contest. This contest will end on March 1st, 2021. First place winner will take home at least 1,000,000 units, and all participants may be rewarded 75,000 units! You can read the details 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.

Sweet Tooth looks nice, I’m having trouble figuring out what’s changing with it artwise, I see the little pink frosting used to outline the track, but what else? I’m just curious.
