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.


@Johanna worked on an overhaul of the furniture store.

@Wheezwer continued working on the new Plaza signage.

@Will continued working on music and sound fixes for the Plaza (fixing holes in the map where there weren’t footstep sounds).

Plaza: Updated Furniture Store Interior WIP


@Johanna started converting props from the Minigolf map, Sweet Tooth into Condo items.

@Madmijk continued working on improving the instruments and adding MIDI support. He improved the listening experience for other players with instrument items, as demonstrated in the video below. The notes are now played more neatly in the rhythm that the playing user played them.

Condo: “Circus Galop” demo on the Grand Piano (MIDI input is not yet available and will be released in a future update)

Condo: Sweet Tooth prop items

Ball Race

@Johanna started a Ball Race, Paradise art pass, updating the course art, rock work, and color palette.

@macdguy fixed a bunch of long standing bugs. He added a little crown on the top left HUD to indicate if the player has died or not (useful for No Death Achievements). The HUD was upgraded and optimized. The pickup system was recoded to fix issues with replication. The bonus stage now indicates how many melons are left to be collected and will end when all of the melons have been collected.

Are we getting the Materials as well? I’ve been really wanting to do a Candyland themed area for a while.


Condo: Sweet Tooth prop items


I love all of the background props in all the maps and have always dreamed that they would one day be items for the Condos. I’d love to see this happen with many many more of the map props, they’re all amazing. Thank you guys so much, I can’t believe this is actually happening!!!


Paradise is one of my favorite Ball Race maps and I have to say, the art pass looks really nice so far!


New wings? That flying robot pet tho.

What store will sell the Sweet Tooth props? Billy’s Ice Cream stand? Maybe a general candy store would be a good idea.

the art pass looks great

I assume more minigolf assets will be available for the condo in the future?
