PSA: Steam messing with save data + upcoming feedback-based overhaul/changes

Hello everyone,

Two updates today.

First off (and most importantly), we're not fully sure what happened but Steam seems to have had an issue for some people which has caused files to incorrectly download; this has resulted in save file corruption for certain people, as its been reported to us. If this happens to you, go to the game in your games library, right click, click properties -> local files -> verify integrity of game cache. We're not sure if this'll fix things for everyone, but for some people it seems to have. If this does not fix it, you may need to start a new game.

Secondly, we wanted to announce that we will be releasing an update soon which fixes a number of things and balances the game better, based off of feedback from players. This will be entirely free.

We realize many people - ourselves included - are not happy with the state the game launched in. We agree with the assessment, and we genuinely apologize for the problems; this will not happen again on our end. We should have delayed again, but instead made a brash decision to release early instead of better QAing the product, which we assumed to be fine after only two QA cycles. We admit this was a bad mistake on our part, and we are dedicated to fixing this and making the game the best possible form it can be. As such, we want to make things right.

As you can see above, this will include adding a time bar and removing the "Check Time" button. We've also added a "quick map" for navigating quicker. This is just one of many changes. Here is a list of things we're working on improving in the coming update:
  • -better balancing overall
  • -reworking to the healing mechanic
  • -added optional tutorial/explanation
  • -better quest tracking
  • -party/player HP in the stats screen
  • -leaving an area brings you to the worldmap instead of tavern
  • -better confirmation/options for banking
  • -bulk delete items
  • -some form of selling system
  • better navigation in areas, like shortcuts or paths
  • -tracking for where to find skills similar to quest tracking
  • -ability to use keyboard for battles (i.e. key 1 -> enemy 1)
  • -changes/overhaul to the nega-monster mechanic
  • -more options in the options menu, namely ability to disable all battle animations rather than just the VFX
  • -various UI improvements (notifications staying longer on screen, battle messages showing in a list rather than fading in and out rapidly)

In the meantime, if you have suggestions or ideas, be sure to post them here:

We have a patch notes/changelog here:

We also have a discord which you can join for suggestions, bug reports, and general discussions.

Hotfixes / Patch Information

Hello everyone,


Over the past 12 hours or so, a decent amount of bugs have been reported to us, as well as some feedback. We try our best to address and fix all feedback within 12 hours of receiving it; this often means that we will get multiple bugfixes out in the same hour, which would explain why there's been so many hotfixes / updates today.

We are hyper-attentive to all bugs reported to us and try our best to fix them as quickly as possible. You can report bugs to us (or just talk with us in general!) in our discord channel:

Today we have fixed a number of crashes, bugs, and some QoL tweaks. We keep a full list of these updates categorized by date here:

Please check to see if your crash is fixed and make sure you are on the latest version before reporting. This is a massive game overall, so some things slip through sometimes.

If you're especially enjoying the game, we'd really appreciate if you could consider leaving us a review as well. All feedback is appreciated - just today we did a number of improvements such as making combat faster and adding current gold to the shop screen. We value player suggestions and feedback and try our best to make the best game possible.

Thank you to everyone who's bought the game so far, we really hope you're enjoying it, and want to make it the best experience possible.

About This Game


After leaving his home in the capital city in the Kingdom of Gronia, our hero Garth wanders along the countryside seeking fame, glory, and his next misadventure. He finds himself amid various escapades, some as mild and comedic as fleeing the City Guard after a wild night with the Lord's Daughter, and some as serious as bouts with monstrous, lurking horrors. Then, in the small, outlying region of Garasia, he finds something that finally could satisfy his thirst for adventure, recognition, and beautiful women: A Lich King! Born once a millennia, these powerful beings are feared by all things living…and dead. Their mysterious allure attracts all into their bind. Gearing up to take such a threat down, Garth realizes something darker may be lurking around the corner when he confronts the current Lich King, Grisette, a woman he had thought constantly since that fateful day many years ago…
