Full details on the changes, and rewards for those who previously made in-game purchases, can be found here.

Players explore in real-time, with the game transitioning to turn-based combat. It can be played solo or with up to three other players.The game released on Steam Early Access in May 2023, with a full release currently expected in 2024.
