I've heard your complaints and seen the issues. Hopefully this hot fix has helped with most of them.
Got rid of the Co-Op in the default build and moved it to the test build only. This will hopefully fix the freezing some people have.
Fixed a bug that allowed you to jump over the river and get stuck without activating the scarecrow first.
Various other small changes and fixes.
Lastly, in order to play co-op with this game, you will need to update your game to the beta version with the password: animadragon56. Please keep in mind that this build is experimental and is prone to some crashing. But if you want to use Parsec or play with a buddy, you will need this build for local co-op.
Thanks and have a nice day!
