Future Updates

While January is still about QOL improvements like localisation, key re-binding, Mac/Linux builds, etc, next week we’ll be getting a few more bits of content too.

Rendering issues at startup and during Treasures (Fixes)

The Steam version of the game might have rendering issues on certain hardware, even if it’s not as powerful as it could be. Black screens, heavy slowdowns, and high CPU usage are possible when there are a lot of semi-transparent pixels on the screen.

They developers don’t have direct control over those issues, so they’re looking for short term and long term fixes, as well as starting a parallel rewrite in a different engine for the long term.
