Hyper Ultra Astronautics 0.0.10 alpha released

A new alpha version of Hyper Ultra Astronautics is out and it's quite a big update. It was supposed to be even bigger, but I had to cut some of the planned features (like co-op high scores and score multipliers) because it was taking too long.

The reason I needed to get the update out sooner rather than later is that it fixes multiple major compatibility issues. The game completely refused to start on Linux with latest proprietary NVidia drivers. On some cases it randomly froze at exit or keyboard input was horribly laggy. All three issues should now be fixed. Let me know if you still see similar behavior.

The new features are mostly related to the survival co-op mode. There is one new boss and beginnings of a score system. You can collect items dropped by killed enemies to gain score, but there are no high-score tables yet. Main menu has been reorganized so that the co-op option is more visible. Many of the improvements affect the competitive modes too.

Here's full list of changes since 0.0.9 alpha:
