Business Heartbeat - October 18, 2019

This week we worked with Ghosts!

When we taught them how to move around last week they were slow and ignored almost everything. Since then, they started turning the lights off and once they noticed the Explorer they have been chasing it down and eating it.

We added some items to help the Explorer not get killed by the Ghosts. The effect these items provide is short-lived, but it allows the Explorer to consume Ghosts if it catches them instead of the other way around. Once that started happening, the Ghosts immediately learned to run away while they are vulnerable.

Progress made & crisis averted, but all this spontaneous killing is a little unsettling...
