I actually bought this about a week ago, but was already at least somewhat familiar with it from having watched a few streamers play it before.

Made it to 30 minutes on all of the four main stages. Haven't played around with Curse, Hyper Mode, or other non-default stuff yet. I'm having fun grinding through the unlocks and accumulating gold before I start worrying about things like that.

I thought the game was fun as a mobile style arcade game. Played 4 hours or so, then a couple hours a few weeks later. Might play a few hours again in the future.

Game has insane play value for just $3.

I picked it up a couple months back, and in that short span of time, it practically feels like a new game now, there has been so much added content.

I've done just about everything in the game, with the exception of killing death. I was thinking of using one of the secret characters to achieve that goal, but apparently cats got nerfed making the setup untenable.

Definitely something to return back to every now and then as it develops.

I've been playing this with every patch since like January. Haven't hit up the newest update just yet, though.

It's a lot of fun to play for an hour or two every couple weeks.

I would imagine with the newly added Arcana, I think the Slash and Awake Arcana will be an even bigger help. It might be a little easier if you're using the Library method with Suor Clerici.

Picked this up last week and I've been having fun with it. My main critique is that it seems like there's an "optimal" build because of how small the item pool is. A lot of the fun of roguelikes is trying to make due with what you've been offered but it's pretty easy to consistently get the same items in this game.

Also your weapon upgrades being tied to the passive items is even more limiting because I feel like my build is screwed if I'm not upgrading my weapons. So I have to pick the passive items to upgrade my weapons even if there are better options it feels like.

While some stuff is definitely better than others, you can at least find a niche for pretty much everything (except knives, fuck knives) to fit them into a build at basically any level of play in my experience.

I'd take upgraded knives over the upgraded whip! At least I can aim the knives instead of only hitting things above me with the whip.

The evolved whip heals you pretty nicely though, which gives it a cool niche (and pairs well with upgraded garlic, which has +knockback making it a solid option in an otherwise high-DPS build)

(Also I simply can't stand having to aim anything in this game. Total pain)

That was, uhh.... Something.

Another update this Monday!

Patch 0.6.0 - ETA 23rd of May

Contains 5 new achievements to unlock:
- 1 bonus stage
- 1 relic to access 2 minor gameplay mechanics
- 2 new arcanas
- 1 more rank for the Skip power-up

Tweaks:
- Halved base duration of Shadow Pino and Valkyrie Tuner
- Shadow Pinion and Valkyrie Turner striking attack has a damage bonus depending on how long it has been "charged"
- Arcana XIX - Heart of Fire also affects Valkyrie Turner's striking attack
- Every bonus point in Armor now also increases retaliatory damage by 10%
- Music and music mods can now be previewd in stage selection screen

__
Due to the amount of work needed to improve on the save data issues with Mac and Steam Cloud, and also for the future patch 0.7, patch 0.6.0 will have less content than usual. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I also hope you have fun with the new little mechanics added in this patch!

One of the new mechanics is mostly for players who simply enjoy playing the game even when there's nothing left to unlock, so please don't feel like you have to grind for these new bonuses.

Future content, unlocks, and achievements will still be (un)balanced on the vanilla character stats and power-ups* and so will not expect you to have accumulated any of these new bonuses.
* Curse excluded

Valkyrie Turner works with Heart of Fire Arcana now so it might be a little better.

I did power through the new content between yesterday and today, including redoing all of that

This update was definitely more interesting than the previous one

I do wonder though, are the golden eggs permanent? They seem to be, but I haven't gone to check.

The Golden Eggs are permanent.

"Golden Eggs boosts the character's starting stats. It does not however increase the character stats while in-game. As a result, any golden eggs obtained in-game will take effect for the next game session."

"As of May 27, 2022, many players report that Golden Egg will increase Amount and Revival on character select screen only. These stats will not be increased in actual gameplay or on the pause menu during gameplay."

Oh, shit

That's incentive to grind out for characters that have weaker starting weapons that you like (e.g Pungala probably doesn't need it because the guns are so good as-is, but Giovanna probably could stand to benefit nicely with how inconsistent the cats are early game)

I'm a little wary of the Golden Eggs at the moment and won't go out of my way to grind for them. Not sure if I would feel comfortable of having permanent +1% of Curse or not.
Probably wouldn't matter much.

Good timing, I randomly decided to try this game on friday night after happening to see it on a twitch stream (had previously dismissed it 'cause graphics looked cheap) and ended up addicted and spent the entire weekend playing it. Now have only 4 achievements left to be fully caught up.

will the last 4 weapons be evolutions of the last 4? i hope so, i hate using weapons without an evolution which makes me reluctant to play those 4 characters, though they are still pretty good on their own, and +3 projectiles is a crazy good passive.

i guess they can't be actually. if there's 5 question marks and 2 are for the new weapon and its evo.

maybe they're going to add some super rare weapons you can randomly chance into.

and if they add a passive item i hope its a good one tbh

spinach, duplicator, book, area, duration, and sooometimes bracer just outclass the other ones because they actually add to your offensive capability.

though i've had surprisingly decent runs before with armor+pumarola (+metaglio left) letting me stand inside enemies constantly and still not have my HP drop, so maybe i'm too biased against the non-offensive ones.

though i really like clover and its flexibility, i can't be certain exactly what effect its having. but it does power up some weps and the increased chance of food makes it almost a better sustain option than the actual healing stuff.

I am currently on a 42 minute run because I was trying to do "Survive 31 Minutes in Mad Forest" and "Reach Level 99 with Antonio" in the same run and I picked up upgraded Laurel to ensure I could get there

I didn't even get the +Revive passive (Despite getting both guns) because I kinda zoned out midgame and just wanted to pick up any passives I could before grabbing the Laurel evolve ones

And I can't kill Death because no upgraded Lancet and one of my weapons is literally Gorgeous Moon (Because +Exp). I've just been standing still and facetanking everything since the 30m mark, and I'm pretty sure my survivability goes up as more Deaths spawn

(Quit the run at about 48 minutes after searching around and learning that apparently killing Death without the evolved Lancet doesn't actually force-quit the game or drop Golden Eggs, so I was just gonna be stuck there literally until I quit. My HP quit going down at all around the 40 minute mark, despite a new Death appearing every minute. I think they were getting stuck on each other, which let the healing from evolved Whip outscale the damage)
