Here's the changelog for the newest version!

New stuff:

  • Added a quit button in the options menu.

  • 3 new legendary items

Changes:

  • Lightning bolt is now a projectile

    Decreased salamander health slightly
  • Revised look for several enemies including King
  • Cleavers now do 4 damage
  • The Red hoodie is now clothing

  • Citrine now does +3 damage
  • Brutal Spear is now uncommon
  • Duct Tape is now legendary
  • The curse of honey now adds +2 slow each turn
  • Coral now adds 2 spikes before the first use

Bugs:

  • Prevented "moon-walking" while going to the map exit

  • Vamprisim no longer procs spikes when using a projectile.
  • Vamprisim no longer creates two gems when using the pickaxe.

  • Fixed a glitch where SFX volume was not properly saved
  • Fixed a glitch where mouse-wood bonuses could apply to multiple arrows in a single row
  • The crooked arrow now starts facing to the right - more consistent with other arrows.
  • Fixed several bugs related to the duct-tape. Duct tape no longer causes helmets to debuff themselves.
  • Duct tape no longer causes cleavers to activate themselves. Duct tape now works with arrows.
  • Fixed "crossbow canceling" - where two crossbows could cancel each others effects
  • Fixed a glitch with cowardly enemies where the game could crash if the last non-cowardly enemy died to poison
  • Fixed a glitch where you could add 0 poison and then it would go down into the negatives
  • Fixed a glitch where curses could be stuck beneath other items and then they couldn't be placed
  • Fixed a glitch that allowed for "cramming" - where you could smash multiple items into a single slot with heavy items
  • Fixed a glitch where the shield spirit would not work with Hercule Pavise
  • Fixed a glitch where vampire bats could still heal when you dodged their vampire attack

Ran into an issue where coal wont refresh dueling sword? Despite it being highlighted in the row. Seems like it should work based as written.

Found all of the legendries. Rapier is absolute trash. Make it one energy. The three legendries are: Rapier 2 energy 8 base damage +7 damage for the combat if you take damage, Doru 1 energy 1 base damage +14 damage for the combat per turn and Robot Toy 1 damage per turn +2 damage per connected manastone.

Apparently Robot Toy procs spikes, not sure if that's a bug or not.

BUG: Every time I take a relic with a bow + arrows, the arrows no longer fire. Just started playing today. Have replicated the bug three times with different relics/bows/arrows.

Hey, love the game! Congrats on the super-successful Kickstarter so far. I only have one question: Any plans for drm-free releases on itch or gog in the fututre?

Oof. Duct tape not working with cleavers is another side nerf.  BUT I WILL STILL CLEAVER ON

Duct Tape still works with Cleavers! They just won't trigger themselves!

Oh! Thank you for the clarification. So not really a nerf. Cleavers are still a-go
