Launch, and first patch



Big thanks to everyone for our launch!

Due to our resources we missed a graphics compatibility issue (use Vulkan to fix), so we’re putting up all of our patch, displayed as 1.3 on the title screen.

Fixes include:
• People experiencing horizontal and vertical lines across the screen should launch the game with Vulkan Graphics API, if you aren’t notified of this launch option from the Play button on steam, you can right click the game and select “Play using Vulkan.”
• Made intro to new game text have a constant scroll speed for ease of reading.
• Also reduced memory consumption.
• Lowered default volume.
• Added music and FX mute toggles to the system(start/esc) screens.
• Cave map geometry alignment issue fixed.
• Demon’s no longer give text battle cries for lore sake.
• Animation for accepting a PP potion no longer shows the get hurt animation.


The patch should be rolling out today for PC, Mac, Linux.
