Extreme Mining a0.5 Update

--> Play Extreme Mining for free right here! <--

Hello friends! Had an amazing burst of productivity on the game this week, largely thanks to a bunch of wonderful feedback from the public playtest at Glitch.mn. Quite a few bug fixes, including some very embarrassing ones related to gamepad support. 

I mentioned in the prior update that I was planning on making a list of all the things remaining in the game and I've mostly done that. Scope creep is really difficult to avoid right now since there are plenty of things I'd love to add, but mostly just don't think they would fit with my goal of releasing the final version of this game at the end of September.

One thing I started working on, but didn't implement in this version, was animation frames for when an enemy dies. I felt genuine sadness to hurt my little rock sons :(

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
