Patch 1.0.2 - (Bug Fixes) just released on Steam

Greetings Messengers, we just pushed a patch to Steam to address some issues a few players were encountering.

Patch notes v1.0.2 :

- Fixed memory leak to prevent framerate drop issue when playing for extended periods of time (6+ hours)
- 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.


We are also working on a few quality of life features, including key remapping, and will follow up shortly with another update.
