Hi again!

Oboy have we done some work, you can now save and quit and return to a run through our save zone system which exists in-between biomes. We have also done a ton of world optimizations that should make the game run so much smoother, we still have a few more to do, but not much left!

New Content

  • Save between biomes and continue run added
  • Save-zone

Monsters & Combat

  • Slightly easier and readable monster attacks early on and harder later on
  • Monsters now have more reliable intervals between attacks
  • Monsters now pause a bit before exiting their attack phase letting the combo finish
  • Improved monster dodge behaviour
  • Less Blood on dealing damage and monster death
  • Optimized and created new Monster spell limbs visuals
  • Improved Monster rendering optimizations
  • Improved death lag-spikes
  • Added culling to eyes
  • Web slingers
  • Bombers
  • Electric wave casters
  • Not all limbs detach all of the time from a dead monster


  • Life and Bottle state is now saved between zones but can be refilled at the save zone
  • The player no longer does extreme poses near borders
  • Animation: Pick up Items
  • Animation: Interact
  • Animation: directional casting
  • New optimized cloth simulation
  • Low-hp threshold now is 30% instead of 20%
  • Improved shadow for Player
  • Blood wave balancing


  • Darker Loam Land Water
  • Optimized Tower of Knowledge
  • Optimized Loam Land
  • Optimized Water rendering a lot

Bug Fixes

That is all for now, cheers!
