As one user has pointed out, the tentacle beasts in 0.3 never attack, even if the box is checked. Since I consider this a serious difficiency in the game, I've issued a hot-fix even while I'm here on vacation. Reload or redownload, and your girls will again be in peril if they wander outside at night.
Update: Only problem with having the same hosting company for five years is that now the server is five years old. The site and game will be down for several hours on the 27th, between 9:00 and 12:00 UTC while I get moved to a more modern server.
This release contains several often-requested and important features. All old save-games are compatible with the new version - you'll just notice new features appear, though the expanded tutorial won't replay.
