So after a while without any real news concerning the game, have another update:
Me and a really nice guy have begun re-working the old, ugly sprites from the game. Once the Beta is released, we will place the new sprites and polish the game as far as we can to ensure you have the best experience possible.
Also, I talked about the soundtrack earlier already, but now I have uploaded two tracks from the game to YouTube. Basically you already know those two tracks, but they just serve as an appetizer for the full soundtrack album, to be released a few days before the beta of the final game goes life.
