Changelog for Update (added 26 April 2018):

* Added the Linux version of STRAFE: Millennium Edition.
high rated
Gold Edition Changelog 05/09/2020

• Optimizations to enemy pathfinding.
• Made secrets more accessible.
→ Trappy Mine no longer requires a battery to play
→ Less rats need to be exterminated to access the rats map secret level
→ Gungeon 3D Blast only requires finding the cartridge to play
→ Made the vase more visible to access “Going Home”
• Fixed bug where number of rats exterminated was inaccurate.
• Updated the game's default length to 2 levels per zone instead of 3.
→ This will lower the time to beat the game and hit our desired length of 30-40 minutes for average players. Also we hope this will help more players see more of the game while learning how to play.
• Added a “New Game +” option after beating the game which will add 1 more level to each zone.
• Added the ability to loop runs. As a reward to beating NG• once all subsequent runs after completing the boss you can continue your run on a loop by jumping into your ship's core and avoiding the cockpit.
→ You will keep your weapons, items, upgrades.
→ Damage taken increases by base damage x 1.25 to the power of loops ex: loop 1 = 125% damage, loop 2 = 156%, loop 3 = 195%, loop 4 = 244%
→ Each loop increases the chance that a secret fuse box will NOT spawn during level generation, chance is 50% on first loop splitting the remaining chance in half each additional loop.
→ Benches increase in price per loop.
→ Food dispensers start disappearing from levels per loop.
→ Break the game, have fun.
• Balanced the benches so that the cost to craft items increases per zone.
• Head “key cards” are now more rare.

• Fundamental changes to how enemy movement is calculated resulting in much better performance.
• Fixed issue where blood mapping could cause a major performance hit in ICARUS and ATHENA.
• Miscellaneous crash fixes.
• Players should no longer fall through the floor on rare occasions.
• Added "Mercy Frames".

After triggering mercy frames you will only take the greatest amount of damage during that period. EX: (If hit by 3 gluttons for 5 damage all within the window you only take 5 damage instead of 15. If you get hit by a glutton for 5 and get hit with an explosion for 10 within the window you will take 10.
• Lowered the explosion damage radius for the player, which also gives higher skilled players some leeway to perform rocket jumps within the force radius without taking damage.
• Changes to Keycards.
ex: in Icarus if you stepped into the room with the keycard and backed up into the previous room it would start triggering "backtracking" monster closets. Now backtracking closets that are on a keycard branch require you to pick up the keycard or a keycard head.
• Picking up items can now trigger a trap by opening close by monster closets.
• Lowered the Bricks base HP.
• Increased feedback to the player when taking damage.
• Richoshot’s reflection angles improved and early explosions prevented.
