Jumpers! We’ve been hard at work squashing bugs and getting the game balanced and ready for the introduction of Campaigns and the Queen boss fight!

Also, you’ll see we’ve added a few achievements to the game, the rest are hidden until they’re hooks have been added and you can actually earn them! Enjoy this first batch and more are coming soon!
