Each update will/may alter the games saves options data format and when run for the first time, will re-create the datafile treating the game as the first time you have played it. We apologise for having to go through the “First Play Experience” each time this happens, but that’s the nature of playing bleeding edge builds :-)We hope you enjoy this comprehensive update, and we look forward to sharing what else we are working on for Cubemen in future updates.
