Caveblazers Together is a mod lets you blaze through caves with friends

Everything is better with friends. Running. Dining. Playing roguelikes with snazzy combat and varied upgrades, even if they do have bizarrely hateful endings that are so horrendous I can't avoid mentioning them in this first paragraph.What I mean to say is that Caveblazers now has an online multiplayer mod, and it's probably great. The mod also lets you enable 360 degree aiming (rather than 8-directional),…
