v048 - Summer Game Festival / Demo Release


Well, here we go. A demo, for free, available for everyone right now. Get it here. Get it on Steam. Hit the ball. Hit the ball a lot. It's ok. The ball likes being hit. Frankly, who cares what the ball thinks anyway? Not us, that's for sure.

So, grab the demo. Hit the ball. And do whatever else you want. Who am I to stop you?

Oh, wait. You want like... update information? Well, fine I guess.

This build is a doozy. There are Leaderboards! There's support for Vive Cosmos (probably)! There are other things! If you're the type of person who loves lists, well then boy do we have something you'll enjoy! Read this great list to see all the stuff we added this time. Also, we re-wrote basically the entire game from the ground up. It was a lot of work. I need a nap. So, I'm gonna go take a nap while you read this awesome list.
