    Our goal this week was to be able to play a full round of the game from start to finish.

    Here's some of the things that were added so we could do that:
    • Scoreboard at top of the screen is now functioning

    • Added notification messages when a Time Cube is crafted

    • You can now destroy & collect cubes from the enemy capture point

    • Enemies will drop any collected cubes when killed or if they leave the server

    • When the required # of Time Cubes have been crafted, a win notification is displayed & there’s a short countdown till the start of the next round. At the end of the countdown the map resets, ready for the next round.
    We’ve also started experimenting with some visual effects that may be added. Will share those experiments in a future update :)

    Nice! I like how the cubes are in a circle around the character xD. In every post, the game is more polished. Can't wait to play Time Gunners! ;)

    Cubes in a circle? That doesn't make sense, they should be spread in a square instead :p

    Would be cool if there will be differend shapes depending on how much cubes the killed player was carrying.

    I agree unless the devs have other plans.

    No plans for cubes to drop into different shapes, for now we're just keeping it simple and having them drop in a circle. In theory players will be collecting the cubes as quickly as they can anyways so shouldn't really notice the shape :)
