We found out that the bounding boxes of our particles are not well sized:

So if the red box (the particle spawning point) would go off-screen, the particles on the right would disappear despite still being displayed on the screen. The new bounding box covers all particles and such prevents them from being hidden when they should not.

Also, lots of work on the new GUI, stay tuned

    Great looking GUI! Am I remembering correctly that it's done with HTML and CSS? Not a big deal right now, but does it support high DPI displays?

    Advanced engine damage is planned at some point in the future. Also great work guys, good to see that bug squashed. GUI looks very clean and professional.

    I know this is an off topic question, but is there any possibility of multiplayer for this game?

    Probably only local...
    Over internet would require crazy amounts of data to be send over :s really difficult to achieve. Maybe if the host computer did all the calculations and only sended the results?
    Idk, it's way over my knowledge ahahah

    I wouldn't count it out, especially with the cutting edge focus this game has. That said, I don't see it happening all that soon.

    Nice work guys ! Can't wait !

    Edit: While you're on Particles, any chance on tweaking the particles size/behavior? Such as in this pic (inset):
