Hi. Thanks for opening up the First Access again. I watched Splattercat's 3 part series on the game and knew instantly that I had to try it. So far it's a fun game. A touch too easy but you've already stated that the AI is kinda stupid at the moment, and that's okay.
Just a suggestion. The character selection feautre is purely cosmetic. I think it would be cool if each character had a unique trait or ability or some such thing. I understand that that might prove probelmatic for multiplayer, so maybe the player could choose from a list of traits or abilities to make the character a little more unique. Perhaps it could be an in game feature, infiltrate 3 urchins into a unique building will unlock the PC's special ability, and the player and his/her opponent can fight over the building.
Thanks again for the cool game.
