Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for March 6th, 2023, detailing all the changes that have happened since February 27th, 2023. 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.

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.

I am so excited for those virus maps, they both look so good!


oh! oh! if you haven’t already, could you add mouse support to the SNES for games that use the SNES mouse (like Mario Paint)? Would love to see that, if possible.
