Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you were able to give the new build a try and get back to me with your thoughts.
- Marisa did the modeling for both the train and the new tables/dresser, and I'm excited to hear you liked that new content! I'll pass it on to her.
- I totally agree with you concerning the explosion sound effect! I felt the same about the old one, in all honesty, and I can easily see myself getting tied of this one fast. It used to be that I presented Bombfest without audio, so it'll be interesting to see what additional feedback I'll be getting now. I will definitely be replacing that sound with something a lot more interesting, in an audio sense!
- I considered setting the default difficulty to Medium, but then I was afraid that people new to the game wouldn't find the difficulty option and get discouraged while they were figuring things out. I think I'm going to set medium to the default setting, while also making the difficulty option more obvious on the practice screen.
- The smoke has been in for a little while, but I've been tweaking it every patch! A Link To The Past and Wind Waker were a huge inspiration for the smoke, and I'm glad you caught the reference!
