Release – Notedrop Ar10Δ

Monday, December 12th, 2011

As you may have noticed, a new release of Notedrop has been released! The changes in this release are aimed to increase accessibility while also making the game a bit more fair. I increased the size of normal notes and made the backdrop behind them darker to make notes easier to see, and I also decreased the base fall speed a bit. Finally, be prepared for a little surprise when you enter the game!

SNOW! SNOW EVERYWHERE!I ruined the surprise.

Detailed release notes can be read below. Various footnotes are present at the end of the release notes.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding, and once school frees up a bit, we’ll be back with updates!
