I hope the april fools' joke didn't ruin your day :)
Version 1.5 is almost done, there is just some more bugfixing and testing to be done.
The upcoming version will feature a whole new racing gametype, including a snow cannon to knock your opponents off their boards. There's also much more like enhanced visuals, optimized splitscreen experience, aaaaaaaaaaannnd - grinding! You will be able to grind on anything you come across - metal, stone, wood etc.
More info and a release date coming soon, so stay tuned!
