Update June 7, 2022


NEW FEATURES

Maps

  1. Added a new boss in Gildenberg (replacing the final boss).
  2. Reworked Lakeburg’s level design.
  3. Reworked Lakeburg’s wave design.
  4. Added a new boss in Lakeburg.
  5. Moved the Dryad boss fight from Lakeburg to Glenwald and reworked the fight.

Shop

  1. Added a sorting and filtering system in the shop interface.
  2. Removed the Level upgrades from the shop. Instead, the level of offered items in the shop now increases automatically over the course of the run.
  3. The number of offered items in the shop will now increase as the player unlocks new equipment over the course of the campaign. This will make it less frustrating to unlock weapons you dislike, as they do not dilute the item pool as much as before.

Production Building

  1. These changes affect the Armor Maker, Blacksmith, Bowyer and Magic Shop.
  2. Added a new type of building upgrade: Shared Upgrades. Item level upgrades are now shared between production buildings. To see the full details check the dedicated section in "Balancing" later on this document.

Items

  1. Changed the way item drops are rolled. Some meta upgrades should not affect item drop chances as much as before (for example, players with respectively 2 and 7 different short swords unlocked will have the same chances of dropping a short sword, which was not the case before).
  2. Night rewards now scale for the entirety of the run (stopped scaling after night 4 until now).

UI

  1. Reworked the construction panel to easily switch between the different sections.
  2. Repairing now has a dedicated section in the construction menu.
  3. New repairing options to make repairing multiple buildings faster: Repair identical buildings, Repair structures, Repair defenses, Repair barricades and Repair walls.
  4. Added new shortcut buttons in the bottom left panel: Inn, Shop and Construction Mode.

Mist censers & Thin Mist

  1. Changed the way thin mist works: enemies under the effect of thin mist are untargetable, but can still be hit and damaged by AoE attacks, propagations, poison, etc...
  2. Mist Censers (added by Apocalypse 3) are now destroyed at the end of every night, and new ones respawn at the start of every day in different locations.
  3. Mist Censers now have scaling health pools (from 150 to 600 HP over the course of a run). They are now easier to kill at all stages of the game, but especially early on.
  4. The number of Mist Censers now increases over the course of a run.

Reward Reroll

  1. Added a feature to reroll the offered items for a single production reward, a limited amount of times a day. The feature can be unlocked in the Oraculum to get 1 reroll per day, and further unlocks can increase the number of rerolls to 3 per day.

Optimization

  1. We’ve updated our game engine during this month and you should expect some performance increase thanks to that. But we still have a lot to do in optimization before the end of the early access.

  7. Reroll cost increased from 30 to 50 gold.
