Version 0.94.4 has been an interesting update for us, as we’ve updated and improved a lot of stuff that you’ll see in the game, but also in other areas to make our lives easier in the coming months. But in the meantime, you can enjoy new multiplayer content, cosmetic improvements, some balance tweaks and loads of bug fixes. Here’s what’s in store:
UPDATES & IMPROVEMENTS:
Rest Streets: Two new rest streets now appear in-game.
Character Skins: All of the character skins got a small lick of paint recently. We wanted to tidy them up a little bit.
Multiplayer Win: The game now clearly identifies the game-over in multiplayer.
Power Up Statues: The power-ups have received a lick of paint, we also renamed them to fit more with the in-game lore.
Multiplayer SFX: Characters are now a little more chatty in the multiplayer menus.
Multiplayer Scores: Players can now see their individual scores in the UI.
Multiplayer Balance: We’ve made a few changes once more to make things more interesting:
Run and Jump: Small tweaks to run speeds and jump heights.
Power Boosts: Power-ups have received a boost!
Multiple Power-ups: Each score mode allows players to now use three power-ups instead of one. You automatically get to use all three power-ups by default, but you only have one charge bar to use across all three.

Sure Footing is slowly coming together behind the scenes. The new additions to the game will be a slow process in the next couple of months as we’re waiting to have everything ready before showing it in the itch.io build. As always, thanks for playing and if you have any bugs or issues don’t hesitate to get in touch in our bug thread here on itch.io.
