Patchnotes via Steam Community

Hey everyone!

We're excited to finally be able to provide a new version to the public! ːhealthyhearthlingː

Some of you may believe that progress has come to a halt, however this is far from the case.
If you're a member of our Discord server, you're presumably already aware of this.

We continued to publish almost weekly updates, but only to our supporter branch.
This was due to the fact that there were a lot of unstable changes that needed to be properly evaluated.

There has been a longer gap between updates due to this and a few additional factors that we'd like to share with you:

  • For the boss 5 update, we conducted a closed test phase, which revealed that it required further development before it can be released to the general public.
    We want Boss 5 to be exceptional because it is meant to be the game's finale. Dont worry, we have some post-endgame stuff planned as well.
  • During the Christmas/New Year period, we were on vacation for a few days.
  • We've upgraded our Unity version and switched from collab to plastic scm for source control.
    This change took a significant amount of effort to ensure that everything was in good state.

In the upcoming Dev Diary, we'll go through this in further detail, as well as our plans for the future.

Arcade revamp

It's finally done. The Arcade has been completely revamped.
There will be some minor changes and more content, but in general the building is fully functional.

The new Arcade has three minigames (Lucky Wheel, Jumble, and Adventure) with similar yet distinct gameplay. All of the games require the use of Arcade resources and provide various rewards.
The amount you wager has an influence on the quantity of resources/gems you may win, but it also affects your luck factor.
In all three games, the luck factor is crucial since it influences your chances of receiving better rewards.
If you wish to unlock additional modules, artifacts, or skillpoints, you should strive for the highest potential luck factor.

You may also win cards from a specific set in each minigame. There are presently nine sets of five cards each. In addition, each card comes in a variety of rarities.

A set's completion unlocks additional skillpoints based on the set's maximum rarity, for a total of 32 skillpoints per set.

The Arcade provides you with a total of 1488 skillpoints, which can come in useful at any stage of the game.

Hardmode Challenges

Once you reach a certain point in the game, the few challenges that exist are no longer difficult.
As a consequence, we've added a hardmode for challenges. The Town's Tower boosts aren't applied in hardmode, and waves are doubled. It all boils down to finding the best blueprint for the challenge.
Let us know what you come up with!

AI alterations

AI scripts can now be organized into packages that can be exported and imported.
Some bugs and annoyances have been addressed (see changelog below)
