Hey all! This patch represents another massive step for the game, in that we’ve gotten rid of a lot of the vestigial stuff from when ETO (Formerly Push the Lane) was going to be a free to play game. The primary system that really was vestigial and under-developed was the cards system. I think it’s possible to take our cards system and kind of build it out into something that’s fun to use. Some have given us cool ideas like making items be cards, so your deck is your inventory, stuff like that. I think there’s a lot we can do with the system in the future, and it’s not deleted, it’s just disabled, so we can always come back to it. But for now I think it’s actually just best if the cards aren’t there.
This patch also adds another character, Lemon. She’s like a dancy jumpy wizard who bounces all over the place. She currently is not animating or playing sounds, but she should be pretty fun to play as anyway. I think she’s the most interesting character yet.
Beyond that, it’s just a nice big ol’ patch. Enjoy!
