Glad to see you're still playing the game! Sorry for the late reply - I've not logged into itch.io for a long time.
I haven't been working on WAKER for a while now, but recently I played around with it and noticed various glaring issues with it, some of which you have pointed out. Personally, I would like to polish the game, fix as many issues as I can, and give it proper closure during my next semester break, as I likely won't have the time or motivation to continue working on it after.
(Small note: one of the last things I worked on before hiatus was a daily seed mode, but I got stuck at making an online leaderboard. Most likely, I will just scrap the online stuff and make it a simple daily seed thing.)
