0.4.8 Update Log & Help me shape the game modes!

Hello  all,

Firstly, a huge thanks to everyone who is supporting the development of the game by  purchasing the early release! Your support has been unexpected, and a huge push for me to move this project forward. An extra special  thanks to those of you would paid above minimum! 

I am currently looking for feedback and input on how to shape the  future of the Dungeon Train.

I would love to start discussions around the follow questions:

What prompted you to get the game?

What do you like about it?

What are the best bits so far? What existing features would you like to see me give   additional attention?

How has it met your expectations?

I want to make sure  I am being transparent about the status of the game. If you feel I could do this better, please let me know!

And any other feedback or thoughts!

In particular:

How would you like this game to be played? I am looking for directions to take it, and things I can prototype quickly / easily.  You will notice the next version has very limited game modes.  Excusing combat system still has not been developed, and is hacky / buggy, there are three main  examples.

1 -  Free Roam. You just explore the train.

2 -  Survival. This is a quick look game mode around combat systems could  look like. Very basic right now, just kill counter and a health bar that doesn't work yet.

3 - Scavenger.  Your health goes down over time, and you must find food to stay alive.

I have developed these to give you an idea on what feedback I am looking for.  All of these modes are incredibly barebones. I am hoping to get an idea on which direction to take it before committing to much to fleshing them out. I expect I will end up taking it in other directions too, and might not limit it to just one. So send me all your ideas.
