    Hey Skul Squad,

This Update (Release 1.2.0) adds 4 new “special event maps” to the game along with some major improvements to the UI. The new maps in particular should boost the replayability of Skul even more!

We also were able to fix a lot of bugs and text thanks to your feedback. Thanks again for letting us know!
Please see below for more detailed information.


UI Changes
  • Increased size of text displayed on the HUD
  • Increased size of text displayed on the HP Bar of bosses
  • Changed UI design of the Adventurer's HP Bar and increased size of the text
  • Changed UI design of the Pause Window and increased size of the text
  • Increased size of text in dialogue boxes
  • Changed UI design of the witch trait window and also increased size of text
  • Changed UI design and increased size of text for pop-up descriptions of skulls, items and food. Also added “See More” option.
  • Changed UI design of the Scroll and also increased size of text
  • Increased size of text in NPC speech bubbles
  • Increased size of text in cutscenes

author: Comment from the Developer: We thought the legibility of the text wasn’t great, so we decided to change the UI’s design and increase the size of the text to make everything easier to see/read.

author: “We hope Russian-speakers can forgive us...”

4 “Special Event Maps” Added
  • Dang-Ka Knight
  • Mystic Ruin
  • The Gauntlet
  • Altar of Greed

author: Comment from the Developer: These new maps won’t appear very often, but they’ll provide a wide range of rewards if you’re willing to accept the risks involved.
