At last, v5 is here! This update brings in the crafting system, which allows players to take certain materials to NPCs and get a new item in return. Some new equipment is available exclusively through this method. Aside from that, we have 2 new monsters, a few new places to explore, updated old maps, new graphics scattered throughout the world, and more hairstyle options. For a more detailed summary, check out the changelog. There are also 2 new skin tone options for new characters - there will eventually be a way to change your skin post-creation, so be patient if you want a new skin tone!
We rebalanced a few things within the game while we were at it in hopes of making the game a little more accessible to newbs (and less easy for high level players). Hoping to have more prepared for this release, we put in many hours this week, but we ultimately ran out of time, unfortunately. If we can muster up the strength, more maps and some bite-sized updates might be rolled out within the next few weeks!
As always, if you encounter any bugs, please post about it so we can fix it!
