Devlog #002: Electric Boogaloo

A new update hot off the press

Major Changes

Added Refrigerated Frontier and Effervert Forest Levels

More regions have been opened up for you to explore, do you brave the risks of brain freeze in the Refrigerated Frontier or perhaps get squeaky clean in the Effervert Forrest. 

With their respective new enemies and unique bosses

New levels means new bosses, I daren’t look at them directly lest I be frozen where I stand. Instead here’s what remains of a damaged photo a brave (some might call stupid) adventure took just before being eviscerated. 


Holy & Necro

Take on the rogue inhabitants with the power of the celestials. Will you follow the righteous path of holy, get corrupted by necro or will you stay true neutral. If you are tempted to diverge from neutrality fill up your newly acquired celestial gauges and unleash your powers on the foes unlucky enough to stand in your way. 

Either way you dedicate yourself you’ll be increasing your arsenal significantly

Character Unlock conditions

Unlock new characters as you explore the world and complete challenges. 

New Rooms:

More rooms have been added to each level to increase the variety and spice things up a bit. 

New Enemy Rooms

Find these powerful foes roaming the lands and beat them to get better loot, complete challenges and unlock new content

Tiered Chests

Locked chests can now be found in the wild, defeat their key bearers to break the chains and get the loot inside. I promise it’s not just the friends you find along the way. 

Gambit lab (WIP)

Come study in the Gambit Lab and learn how to combine your Gambits to create more powerful and exciting effects. Please note due to budget cuts and lack of school funding this lab is in dire need of refurbishment. Thankfully our wizard is working his magic and making this a better learning environment. 

Blood Fountains

This level not challenging enough for you? not quite sure you’re ready to take on the boss? Why not visit the blood fountain and rest a little while. Drinking this lovely Merlot may heal you some but will also empower all remaining enemies on the level so watch out.  

Meta Progression

We’ve implemented a encyclopaedia to help track your progress within the game. 

Added in Score system and in game timer

You might have seen it in the previous images but we’ve added a timer and score to measure how you’re doing on your run. 


By flicking through the pages you can track your in game progress, score and even compare it against your friends and the wider community on steam.
