Wanted to bring this to everyone's attention

Hey everyone

The just-awarded Metacritic rating for Monster Slayers has appeared on the Steam page and we wanted to post it here in case anyone missed it:

Look at that lovely number:

And here is the number on its own:

Once more, but much bigger:

Yep, we're pretty pleased with that. Making it even sweeter is the fact the high rating puts Monster Slayers in the top 10 PC games released in the last 90 days (according to Metacritic).

Congrats to Nerdook for making such an awesome game – the high rating is well deserved. And thanks to everyone here for playing and supporting Monster Slayers.

Patch v1.2.1 is now live!

Hey everyone! I've uploaded patch v1.2.1, and here's the changelog:

v 1.2.1 (16th May 2017)

- Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been stuck playing Prey and recovering from the mad update schedule!
- Fixed the Phoenix Down bug
- Changed 'Bribe' - Damage now costs 1 gold, and its discard effect is now 2 cards for 1 gold.
- Changed 'Thorns' - It now lasts for 3 turns instead of 1. Items that previously gave a temporary Thorns card now grants a permanent Thorns effect instead
- Added 'Eye for an Eye' - Tier 2 Magic card. Until the start of your next turn, the enemy suffers 1 damage for each damage you suffer.
- Updated Mac builds to be current with PC builds

v 1.2.0 (8th May 2017)

- Added upgrades for Dragon and Merchant classes
- Added new card for the Merchant: "GOLD RUSH" - Either gain gold and draw a card, or spend some gold to deal damage to the enemy.

v 1.1.9 (7th May 2017)

- Added new card for the Merchant: "BRIBE" - Either deal damage based on your remaining Gold, OR pay gold to force an enemy discard, OR pay more gold to instantly defeat the current enemy.
- Added new talent for the Beastmaster: Add 2 random temporary Wolf cards to your hand (3 battle cooldown)
- Increased Undead Minion damage for the Necromancer
- Fixed animation for Necromancer and some typo errors
- Fixed Fortified bug that wasn't clearing properly
