Extreme Mining b.02 Update!

Hello friends! Happy to announce a new version to Extreme Mining! Received a lot of great feedback from people who played the game after the beta release, which I am very thankful for.

Part of this release was solidifying the final roadmap for this game. I have a general idea of where I want things to end up with the game, which is great! I've been using this project as a means to learn how to make games like this and I think things have been going really well.

There are still balance and game flow issues to resolve, but things have been getting more aligned with what I expect from a final product. One of the big things that needs to get worked on are the visuals of the game. I still feel that things are a bit raw when it comes to the art style. I've been drawing a lot of this with either the mouse or a 10 year old Wacom tablet, both aren't ideal.

Hope you enjoy the update! If you make a YouTube video out of it, please shoot me a message on Twitter @ben_burnes and I'd love to share it with the world :D
