    Hey, everyone!

    I feel like I just posted here a few days ago… weird. Anyways, it’s time for a large update -- this weekend, we’re going to be releasing a major update for three beloved gamemodes: Downgrade, Freeze Tag, and Murder! There will be different streamers online throughout the day for the update; make sure to check out their streams and play with them! Downgrade and Murder will be updated at 1PM ET today, and Freeze Tag will be updated later tonight.

    Downgrade is getting the biggest update tomorrow to resolve the biggest issue with the game -- it’s too repetitive. With only 2 maps and the same set of weapons every game, it makes sense. So, we’ve added 3 completely new maps and remade the old ones -- all of these maps will be smaller than before, so it should be easier to find each other, and make the game more fast-paced. We’ve also changed the weapon system to randomly pick a different (fair) weapon for each tier per match, and added 20 new weapons -- so there are now hundreds of different possible weapon sets each game could have. And, yeah, we removed the rail gun. If this update is received well, we’ll crank out some more maps and new guns to make Downgrade even better!

    We all love Freeze Tag, but it definitely needed an update! Here’s a list of improvements we’ve made to it:
    • New UI (scoreboard, messages, etc.) with more thematic colors
    • Fixed a bug where chasers sometimes were never chosen -- whoops
    • You now get coins for playing, and even more for winning
    • A bunch of other smaller things not worth mentioning
    Like what I said for the DG update, if this update is received well, then we’ll pour more resources into Freeze Tag: new maps, new features, and more.

    Murder’s update tomorrow isn’t huge, but it’s still definitely worth mentioning! We’re going to:
    • Add 4 new maps -- Snowglobe, Woodfield, Garden Estate, and FNaF2
    • Update the UI (scoreboard, messages, etc.)
    • Fix/add a lot of smaller things not worth mentioning
    Murder will get a much bigger update soon, but we didn’t want you all waiting too long so we’ve released this in the meantime.

    I’d also like to officially announce that we’ve shut down Survival Games -- it wasn’t popular from the start, and as a whole in Minecraft, SG isn’t doing too hot. We thought it would be better to put our time into updates for games like these (Downgrade, Freeze Tag, and Murder) that we know for a fact the community enjoys. If things change, we might bring it back, but for now we’d rather focus on our other games so we can keep giving big updates like these! Who knows? We might even release a new game this month…

    Phew, that was a long post! If you have any questions, as usual, feel free to ask below. We look forward to seeing you for the update tomorrow!

    That's so exciting! Murder and Downgrade are my favorites. I might have to stop by soon for a visit :)
