Notes[edit | edit source]
- Thing of the Week 4 was deleted and reuploaded. It showed the newly reworked Desert level, but had another part cut out showing a new mechanic idea called the Heat Meter, inspired by God Hand, where enemies would become more difficult to defeat as the player's score gets higher. PTG would scrap this feature shortly after receiving feedback on the original upload and decided that the idea would make the game too complicated, but stated on Twitter that it could come back as a specific level gimmick.
- The section of the video showing concept sketches of the idea that was taken out of the reuploaded version can be found here.
- The new version (the one that removed the concept idea) replaces the section showing the concept with a black screen with the words "No dumb idea here!" with Ball Peppino slowly rolling across the screen to Drax - Happy Happy Christmas, which is a song often used in memes related to spinning.
