Nebular Gauntlet v0.5


#1

So it has been almost 6 months since the last release of Nebular
Gauntlet, which is too long. This release features many improvements
over the last one as seen below. However, I have disabled multiplayer
in this release as it is basically unworking and is pointless to try
right now. Hopefully, for the next release I will be able to get it
working.
