Release Notes: This release tries harder to run in full screen mode now: in case it can't switch the screen resolution, It will use the current resolution. The code was upgraded to use Castle Game Engine 4.1.1, making it possible to use levels that refer to network resources.

Release Notes: The code has been upgraded to use the latest Castle Game Engine version 4.0.0, which brings many improvements and optimizations. Creatures are now a little smarter and more configurable. Collisions are handled in a uniform fashion, which fixes some problems with creature vs. creature collisions (for example, a creature can now step over the corpse of another creature). Collisions with the ground when the creature was pushed by a force are now fixed. The game data and source code are much simpler and easier to extend. Levels and creatures load much faster and require less memory.
