Hello Skeleton Crew!

Presenting you our biggest update until now: The Quality of Afterlife Patch, adding a ton of requested features which make the game more accessible and fun to play! Most noteworthy are the new Map you can find ingame at certain places, giving you a nice overview of the Cubold Kingdom and your current position. And If you want to play with a more laid back experience, you can enable the new relax mode.

Our Issue tracker is public and can be found over at https://trello.com/b/yTckRnZ3/skellboy-issue-tracker. If you catch another bug not yet on our list we would be grateful to hear from you either on the Forum or our discord server.
