  • Fixed soft lock that occurred when dying at the same time as killing a boss
  • Fixed game timer that would restart at zero after going over 24h
  • In Catacombs, preventing an issue where players could get stuck in a challenge room after saving in the room and reloading the game because of breakables respawning
  • In Rivière Turquoise, fixed an issue where players could respawn in the wrong dimension and get stuck
  • Health and mana drop upgrades will now function properly the moment they are bought, instead of upon restarting the game
  • Being careful with spoilers here, but a certain button mashing sequence has been reworked to prevent blockers for certain players.

Version 1.0.4 (November 21, 2018)[]

Patch Notes[]

New Game+ mode:

  • NG+ is additive, where each subsequent cycle increases difficulty, but also lets you lock in an item to have from the start, making the quest shorter every time
  • Tread carefully; in NG+, you need to pay Quarble upfront, or it’s GAME OVER
  • Can you beat the dev’s high score of New Game+7??

  • Accessible through the pause menu

Dialogue turbo speed:
