Hyper Ultra Astronautics 0.0.11 alpha released

It has been way longer than I intended since the last alpha update, but a new version is finally here.

The single most important addition in this update is online and local high score tables for the survival co-op game mode. After long delibaration I decided have four separate high score tables for different player counts. Player count here means the maximum allowed simultaneous player count. You can choose from 1 to 4 simultaneus players, but a lot more players can still play by taking turns. Choosing more simultaneus players will make enemy waves tougher so that overall difficulty will stay approximately the same.

I have made a lot of changes that affect survival co-op difficulty progression. Please let me know what you think. Is is too easy or too hard?

Here's full list of changes since 0.0.10 alpha:

I decided to stop building 32-bit Linux packages. Maintaining 32-bit build environment seems like a waste of time as barely anyone has downloaded the 32-bit version and apparently practically every gamer on Linux uses 64-bit distribution now. If you really need the 32-bit version, let me know.

Updated packages are available for download on Itch.io page. Check out the game page for updated information.
