New Activity Lobby - as an alternative to digging through the menu, there are now doors to the activities at the rear of the locker room
3D Charades - we 've had a lot of requests for lower intensity activities with time to chat and socialize, so please give this a try and let us know what you think! From our internal testing it is incredibly fun. We hope you like it too! It is marked "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" because we don't think it's finished yet. But it's ready for testing and feedback.
New Theater environment - which is where you play Charades.
3D Pen - this tool is used to play 3D Charades. You can draw anything, and it will turn into a physics object that you can use to act out your charade. Yes we know what you're thinking. Don't draw *****.
Speaking of drawing *****, this update is synced with our new code of conduct. The full text is on the Steam page, but some highlights:
Kids under 13 are not allowed.
No sexually explicit language or behavior in public areas (e.g., the Locker Room that you start in)
Overall people are being really cool, but we have seen some less-than-cool stuff like mobbing of female players (not cool!), sexist/racist language (not cool!), deliberately making loud noises over voice chat (not cool!). First of all, if that's you... please don't? Secondly, if you see people doing stuff like that, gently point them at the code of conduct. Thirdly, we've made it easier to mute and ignore players who are being annoying...
New and improved mute and ignore shortcuts - press and hold MENU button to force the laser pointer to come up. Point it at a player and release the button. Try and let us know what you think.
If you want to mute yourself, that is now in SETTINGS.

This is a new system and will need testing and tuning... help us out by using it and reporting any weirdness.
Partial support for private rooms might make it in, not sure yet. In any case, we are working on that.
Lots of tweaks, including many requested by you! Yes YOU SPECIFICALLY! E.g., there's now four ping pong paddles, there's a single-player ping pong table, there's a camera upstairs, there's a boxing dummy in the Changing Room (someone wanted to shadow box =])... and lots more.
