Patchnotes via Steam Community

Dear animal-freakshow-lovers,

Mr. Parrot, our host of the show, is always right. He promised two content updates in January, and guess what? We got it for you today! The brave participants of The Crackpet Show continue to explore Petopolis and now fight their way in Episode #14 to face another new boss - Wack-a-Ctopus!

Let’s take a look at all new additions:

New weapon

Egg launcher - A double-edged gun… weapon that throws exploding eggs. Some of the eggs may hatch enemies, but that's a risk you have to be willing to take.

New perk

Dash Attack - While dashing, you shoot additional bullets to the sides.

New special item

Chilli Pepper - Hot stuff, that generates a lava line, that damages enemies. Also makes your next toilet visit painful.

New enemies

Dog Healers - Think of shaman dogs, relentlessly healing other enemies. So you need to kill them fast. Sorry, PETA!

New mechanic - Critical Hits

With this update, we introduce a Critical Hits mechanic. For the time being, all weapons have a fixed amount of chance for a hit with double damage. With the future patches, you can expect an addition of a sponsor bonus, special item, and perk, allowing you to further increase a chance for Critical Hit.

Balance tweaks

We have read hundreds of comments, seen dozens of videos, had multiple discussions in the studio about the balance of the game, and we have decided to tweak it further.

The main goal of the new changes is to nerf OP combinations of perks, weapons, and special items. The ones in which you can kill the boss within a couple of seconds. But don’t worry. They are not drastic, and we have also buffed less commonly used weapons. These adjustments are also taking into consideration the new Critical Hits mechanic.

We have also tweaked co-op - enemy health gain per additional player is now lower, teammates can be revived for 50% longer, while the time needed to get them back on their feet is now reduced.

Feel free to ping us on any channel you wish with your feedback regarding the changes! Thanks to your reports, we have also managed to fix another wave of bugs reported from you throughout January. Let’s take a look:
