Version 0.1.0b30

The focus of our work for this version was split in two major areas.
First and foremost we wanted to get the demo ready for steam. In which we succeeded! The demo is available on steam Tuesday the 9th of June 7 pm CEST.

Secondly we were working on Level 1.5, the last level we were going to add to our demo. The new level is finished and playable in the new version.

Of course we also fixed a lot of bugs and minor game-play issues and replaced them with new ones for you to find 😉
