Recommended Posts


Hey everybody. Thursday October 20th we will be releasing the newest update "A Little Drama" along with a QOL update and Hallowed nights on Steam. PlayStation and Xbox hopefully about the same time as usual, but we might need a little more time since we have so many changes in there. We'll have a post on Switch Status soon as well.

A little suggestion: monster meat is included in meat. So as to the changes of banana shakes, monster meat should be changed to monster foods as durians are also a monster food. And by viewing the scripts, it is confirmed that monster foods are not allowed, not just monster meat.
