Ruckus & Rascal is released!!! Final (Major) Build (V1.0)

Ruckus & Rascal has been released!

Hello once again, everyone! This is the most significant announcement just yet, we are releasing Ruckus & Rascal!!! Thank you all for coming along this ride with us, it's been fun, but all good things come to an end and this is the time we let our beloved project go. We may release additional small updates and bug fixes, but this is the last major update we are releasing.

This is what we added/changed since Early Access:
  • All AI enemies now have models and animations! They are either chefs or waiters.
  • The Level has been altered, now having a different diner.
  • The Level has been fully set dressed, both outside and inside.
  • We reworked the cameras a little, so they should now work better with the player being apart from each other.
  • We added little minigames, such as a slot machine and Connect4.
  • There have been a few changes to the look of the shader.
  • We added a jukebox that can play songs. But don't worry, it can be turned off if you prefer that.
  • Many changes to the UI, especially the Main Menu and Character Select Screen (it now shows both raccoons!). We also added the Settings Menu and Credits Screen and a new font!
  • Balanced Rascal's minigame when in disguise mode.
  • Carts can now fall down if there is nothing underneath them.
  • Instructional pop-ups have been adjusted to help players more.
  • Lastly, we fixed many bugs!
