Known issue: Games started before this patch still use the old rules. While the UI will say Player 2 has 5AP, their setup spawns stop working after 4. This update only works for games started after its release.
In the latest update to Hex Gambit’s alpha (PC Kickstarter backers only), we’ve added a fix to help combat the first turn advantage that’s been plaguing our unfortunate Player 2s! Second player can now bolster their defenses with an extra spawn on their setup turn, which should prove helpful in turning back an aggressive rush from Player 1. We actually have a whole list of different ways to help even things out, but we figured we’d try the simplest approach first. Take it for a spin and let us know what you think!
Also added this update, some of our music and sound effects are trickling in! Thanks again to all of our Kickstarter backers for helping make this quality sound and music possible. Coming soon: big improvements to the in-game UI.
