v1.3.1 (halfway thru big update and steam release)

Hi everyone!

Thanks for playing simmiland so far! The appreciation led me to developing it a bit further and releasing it on Steam soon!

This update introduces a meta gameplay system where you can expand your card deck. This means normal games will now let you play with 50 cards instead of the previous 100 cards but you will gain coins by playing the game and getting achievements (again) which you can use to buy new cards! For now this means also you can get 2 new cards that weren't in the game before.

In a few weeks the game will receive an even bigger content update. This version showcases some new content already and some new items won't have much use yet (please bare with me!). Also note that everyone who owns the game on itch.io will get the game on Steam as well!

Here is the complete changelog:
