go check out v0.4.0 captains! - Space Grunts 2 - Early Access on Steam
(info: next week with v0.5.0 the price of the Early Access will increase!)

Not a very big list of new stuff this week, but there is one HUGE addition to the game and that's an end-boss! Defeating the boss doesn't really do anything yet, so that's something I'll be working on for next update ( an actual ending ) and I'll also start working on more alien-specific cards, especially for the boss battle.

Besides adding a boss to the game, there's also a collection of new cards and effects and a few big changes in balancing the whole game, I've personally been enjoying this version more than the previous ones due to the balancing in card-drops and alien encounters.. so let me know what you think!

There are now just a few big things left on my to-do list, first one is making an actual ending to the boss-battle , second is adding more cards but also alien-specific cards. Still a few events I want to add, and a couple of hidden/alternate area's for players to encounter and venture into. And finally get some daily-challenges up and running.

Of course I'll also keep balancing and tweaking all the other stuff based on feedback and my own play-throughs!
