Progress Update 5/22/2021

A lot of new stuff during this week. We’ve implemented many new features like concept art during loading screens, membrane preview during the editor sessions and we fixed Glucose not decaying over time. Some of these are in the newest Build of the day for our patrons.

Speaking of which, we reached our second Patreon goal! We now can hire a part-time developer which now guarantees continual progress on the game. We’re getting things moving forward about this, so stay tuned for future updates.
