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.


Work continues on the next update to Tower Unite, Update, which will introduce the Private Theaters, rent-able private screens for you and your friends complete with a bar, along with the new Laser Tag arena!

In addition, this update will include TONS of quality of life changes and bug fixes.

You can view our current progress on this update here.

Condo Improvements

New Condo Surface Editor!

@macdguy worked on a new and improved condo surface editor. This new editor boosts many new features and improvements.

The surface editor now displays all the materials in a larger way, making it easier to find materials.
It also keeps track of the currently selected surface, along with automatically highlighting the current surface. It supports canvases and displays canvases for fast access to already used canvases. Several bugs have been ironed out as well, along with many surfaces having world align variants that they previously did not have.

Laser Projector Optimizations

@Madmijk has been working on optimizing the Laser Projectors, as well as giving users the ability to optimize their own Laser Projectors.


@Lifeless continued working on a new map for Little Crusaders.

@macdguy continued working on getting Update ready for release. He also fixed issues with head rotation while in seats, and added water splashes that are affected by velocity.

@Sketchman continued working on improvements and optimizations. He fixed issues with animations when starting a server, and worked on infinite drag for Gizmos (so the mouse will wrap around the screen). He also fixed the issue with Voice Chat where voice chat would replay voice data.

@Wheezwer worked on concept art for a new Event Catsack and Celebrations NPC, and continued working on haunted paintings for the Shooting Gallery ride.

Please make it so the Selection Menu stays up when Choosing Textures, and have A Ok/Confirm Button or X to close it. Sometimes you just want to try diffrent textures to see whats best, this would just make it frustrating.


New surfaces? Fixed head rotation? All before Bone Zone this year? Ooh yeah, I see this as an absolute win.


Loving all the updates to Condo stuff, this is incredible, thank you!!!
