Weekly Dev Log for September 6th, 2022

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for September 6th, 2022, detailing all the changes that have happened since August 22nd, 2022. 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.

For information on the public beta test last week, click here.

@macdguy worked on getting the beta test deployed, and also fixed some bugs found during the public beta.

Virus: Altar WIP


@Johanna worked on a bunch of optimizations in the Arcade, massively reducing the amount of drawcalls. This means that the game will be able to render everything on the screen much more quickly and efficiently, increasing performance in the arcade.

@joshua continued working on new Halloween items.

@Lifeless continued working on Virus: Theme Park.

@Sketchman continued working on general backend improvements.

@Wheezwer continued working on Steam emotes, badges, and trading cards.
