v1.5 - The Spectator & Streamer Update

It's time for another BIG patch, once again bringing more fixes, map adjustments, balance tweaks, and two huge new features: Spectator support and Streamer instance support. I'm extremely excited about these in particular because they allow for exciting and unique match perspectives for viewers of live streams.

Spectator Mode

Simply join a lobby and don't choose a hero, and you'll be spectating that match! Spectators can choose to view the game as the players do - but also through a new visibility mode that shows invisible players as silhouettes.

Streamer Instance

Activate the "eye" button on the title screen to launch a second copy of Invisigun alongside the first - and it has a completely unique set of preferences. Coupled with spectator mode, this lets you participate in matches in the first game while streaming a separate spectator copy for your viewers in the second game. Public matches are time-delayed to prevent abuse, while private matches are real-time.

This hopefully opens up a whole new world of sharing the game's action with others, and I hope you enjoy the slew of other updates with the patch. Here's the full changelog:
