OS X Problem

I'm very excited to see a mac release. However, all I get is a blank window when I try to run it. I'm running 10.7.5. Any idea how to get it to work? Merry Christmas!

Dark Empathy prevents minions

    Dark Empathy prevents minions from damaging the master

This needs to be a major highlight! THANK YOU for making minion necromancers something that wasn't actually detrimental in most situations.

Prodigies at 30 and 42? That

Prodigies at 30 and 42? That is fantastic! Thanks for the constant awesome updates Darkgod <3

Loading older games

You can load saves from older versions now? Potentially awesome if it doesn't cause lots of bugs. Will definitely have to test it out. :)
