Happy (just-about) New Year!

Here's hoping 2022 sees the world in a better place than 2021. Fingers crossed!

But at the very least, to round out this year (aka. "2020: Part 2"), have a Catacomb Kids update.
(Just on Windows for now: Mac + Linux following in a few days.)



It's not the Deep Dark yet, but it is a bunch of bugfixes!

The Deep Dark update should be out probably sometime early next spring. It's very nearly done in terms of content, but still needs a big audio pass and some finessing of certain edge cases in the level generation. Once the Deep Dark is released, I'll get started working on the fourth - and final - area: The Mad Hell!

But that's all still in the future! In the meantime, here's the patch notes for this update. Most significantly, I've added a shortcut system, whereby activating a certain machine that occasionally appears in the Anticropolis will thereafter on every subsequent run spawn a shortcut between the Upper Dungeon and Anticropolis. It won't be a free trip though; the shortcut entrance is hidden, and guarded by tough enemies.




  • Added unlockable shortcut between Upper Dungeon and Anticropolis, which can be opened via a machine in the AC




  • Arrows no longer collide with other carryable items, like corpses, potions, mushrooms, etc.
  • Broken spikes no longer collide with boulders, letting them fit in li'l pits snugly now
  • "Weakness" incurred by amulet of shadows no longer procs "Lucky!"
  • Torches are now ignited by lava instead of extinguished
  • Finally fixed the Anticropolis transition stage to re-introduce the frozen door and side-tunnels!
  • Doubled the duration of blue slime on feet when thrown at foes
  • Flames from "Fire And Ice" Tome can light campfires and torches now
  • Locked doors can be opened by throwing keys at them
  • Items have their prices locked upon being bought or sold
  • LUC has a smaller impact on the prices of sold items, and a larger impact on the prices of bought items
  • Improved the timing of the death replay, so that it always captures the moment of death
  • Normal Bear body takes less damage when her limbs are severed

  • Bug: Campfires in the Anticropolis still warm the player even when extinguished
  • Bug: Controls can switch between player 1 and player 2's saved input setups during the level generation screen
  • Bug: Several bugs with the death screen in co-op, including being unable to continue in Generous mode
  • Visual: Some elements of the ui were out of resolution with the rest of the game
  • Misc: Fixed some memory leaks

(Unfortunately, this update will break any saved games you have, sorry!)
