Track 2 of Sunrise Isles looks amazing! I definitely like the idea of jumping over parts of the track, but it may make the minimap for the track extremely confusing to follow for first time players. Still very excited though!

Oh yes thank you, tool glove taking 1 weapon slot instead of dedicating 4 slots for 4 separate tool guns.

Neat.

Really excited about the galaxy time game, the “dalek” is absolutely amazing for the game. Also getting my hopes up for the new snowball arena, just in general this new stuff sounds amazing. Keep up the good work guys! The cartoony look is really coming together in my mind.
