kuso Update #4 - The Final Secret

I've been hinting for months that there's one final secret in kuso. It's my 32nd birthday and with the game on a brief deep sale, I figured I'd share with you what the final secret is.

The final secret track will be added to the kuso Official Soundtrack Volume 2 in the coming weeks, so look forward to that.

If you picked up kuso as part of the current deep sale, please consider leaving the game a review. One of the best ways for games to get discovered on Steam is by user reviews. Your review matters, especially for small games like mine.

And in case you felt like double dipping, the game is now also available on the Nintendo Switch in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand! Read more about that at www.kuso.ge !

Thank you so much for all your support.
