Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for November 1st, 2021, detailing all the changes that have happened since October 25th, 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.
Thank you again to everyone who participated in our survey. We had a whopping 6,700+ responses!
You can view the results of this survey here.
As we’ve done in the past, the theme for October’s contest is Halloween!
Feel free to interpret that how you like, whether that means making a haunted forest maze, a creepy basement, a chill Halloween party, or anything else, so long as it follows the rules and reasonably suits the theme.
The contest has been extended due to the Steam issues we were experiencing, and now will end on November 5th, 2021 at 11:59 PM CT.

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.
