- Fixed issues where you had to leave the area to be able to pay Bear and Cat to change their song again.
- Fixed issue where the Flailmunk's homerun effect would get triggered at the wrong time.
- Fixed Flailmunks getting eaten mid-attack by Grues.
- Fixed SnortHogs getting stuck in an invalid state if you stopped mind-controlling them mid-charge.
- Improvements and fixes for sound and visuals in the end credits.
- Fixed issue where Steam saving would lock up.

Features:

- Flailmunks are now afraid of Clonington when he flexes.
- Added drop shadow to all controlled characters, and greatly improved the performance on the characters that already had drop shadows.
- Added a character bark when switching between characters in the totem map menu.
- Knaus now moves much faster while underground, and digs holes faster.

We couldn't have done this without your continuous support and help, so thank you all, our dear players. And we hope these improvements will bring more travelers to this World to the West!

About This Game

World to the West is an action adventure game developed by Rain Games. It builds upon the universe of indie hit Teslagrad, which has been played by over 1.6 million people so far.

World to the West is a pulpy, cartoony top down action adventure inspired by European adventure comics. Take control of four unique characters —Lumina the Teslamancer, Knaus the orphan, Miss Teri the mind bender and the gloriously mustachioed strongman, Lord Clonington—, each with their their own motivations, skills and interweaving storylines, as they seek to escape the dark shadow of an ancient prophecy. Travel trough corrupt colonies, lush jungles and frozen tundras, as you snoop through the secrets of a forgotten civilization.

Be careful though. Nothing is ever what it seems. Will you join us in this journey to the West?
