16 Mar 2014 » Exit compass

For exits and (some) objectives, the game will show compass arrows at the edge of the screen to show the players where they are.

These notifications tell the players where to go without having to bring up the map, as the map is very distracting in multiplayer.

16 Feb 2014 » LOS with Raycasting

The line-of-sight algorithm got an upgrade in 0.5.4. This new algorithm uses raycasting; rays are cast from the player’s tile outwards to the edges, setting tiles as lit until a wall is encountered.
