Space Grunts 2 update v0.5.0: New life forms, area’s and events found, Captain


Where last weeks update was a lot of fixing and tweaking, this weeks update comes in with a lot of new stuff. New aliens are added, new alternate-levels to be found, a new event or two and a bunch of new cards being sorted into your deck!

I’m not going into any details on these alternate-levels, as it’s part of discovering it yourself as a player, but I might eventually do some work on some sort of Wiki pages (cause I usually forget about these secrets myself over time!)

I’ve been adding a bunch of alien-specific cards to the game, so that aliens now have a bit more choice during battles without having to resort to weird human like weapons.

Make sure to check out last Thursday’s vlog showing the creation of the boss:
