Citadelic demo update: stats and UX improvements

A new update to the demo version of Citadelic has been released on Steam. It includes the following changes:

  • Statistics are shown at the end of each run. The stat system is explained in detail in this post.
  • Active upgrades and augments of a structure are now visible when moving your cursor over it.
  • Camera rotation sensitivity can be changed in the Settings. The tooltip there also explains that middle mouse button can be held in-game to rotate the camera.
  • Game controller hints are not visible if the player is using a mouse when a controller is plugged in.
  • Minor text changes when selecting modifiers and difficulty.
  • Camera is zoomed in closer to the game area by default.
  • Structure customization tooltips now show a hint that right click can be used to unselect the structure.
  • Keyboard can be used to close in-game tooltips and panels (backspace by default).
