Release 1.1 "Groundhog Day" The community has spoken! I received tons of feedback about this game - thank you very much! Without you guys, this game wouldn't be what it is right now ♥ This patch fixes numerous bugs and brings a lot of QoL changes that significantly improve the survival experience of our squirrels.

New content:
- Mike now responds to groundhog day date.
- Achievements implemented. You can now collect 28 different achievements that are counted across savegames (three of them are not yet available).

Gameplay:
- Daddy Squirrel can now be approached multiple times during the day, but will only ask if you're coming back tomorrow.
- The conversation with Daddy Squirrel now no longer breaks off if you don't give him any supplies.
- Daddy Squirrel will not accept any more supplies if he has enough to survive the winter.
- At the end of each day there is a choice whether to use the EXP received directly. After that the game is saved.
- You get a hint at the end if Seebastian survived or not, or if you didn't meet him at all.
- [Hard and Infernal only] The starting bonus once you have played through the game has been increased from 50 to 300 supplies.
- [Infernal only] On a Game Over with no extra lives, you can choose the "Quick Restart" to restart on Day 1 without having to rewatch the intro.
