Happy Easter! Here is (mostly) the update I had planned that I discussed in my last update announcement. Long story short, all the new content is in the game now, but the optimizations have not been added yet. The deadline for me getting the build back has unfortunately been pushed back a couple weeks, so when I am given the project file I will re-implement the content added in this build and then update again.

So here's what's in this update:

-Improved combat balancing: The difference in Will consumption + damage dealt is now more noticeable in close combat versus normal combat; tutorial textbox explaining close combat added; Will hitbox a bit more precise; Enemies slightly healthier and faster (only faster in close combat); Jyl block slightly stronger.

-Talk feature: Talk to Jyl in order to get clues on where to go/what to do. Because the relevant conversations are now saved/loaded with the game, on first load with older save files, it will default to the first talk conversations regardless of what point you are in, in the save file. In order to use this feature without that hiccup, starting a new save file is recommended, but it will not break older saves. As you proceed through the game in an older save, as relevant conversations pop up they will replace the incorrect ones.

-Bad End 1: A bad end has been added to the game, which will occur if Rina dies with her Will broken.

-A couple of songs have been mixed/mastered by my friend, Percevalko

-A few various bug fixes, such as Ranslug ground spikes breaking if game is paused while they are about to shoot, and the save file playtime glitching/crashing the game when trying to load save files if one was created from the initial demo build from last May.

As always, PLEASE report any bugs/glitches you encounter, as I am a one-woman team and cannot fully test every update myself, even though I try to do whatever I can think of to test things out. If any bugs come up, I'll be releasing smaller updates to fix them leading up to (hopefully) the final update later this month. Thank you everyone for your patience!
