As promised, the new build is ready and released! Links at the right have been updated already, so go grab it!
Frequent visitors will already know this, but the new build adds three new floors to the Tower, bringing the total height of the main dungeon to 29 out of the 30 planned floors. What was less discussed is that three new Sanctum side dungeons have been added as well: two in the new floors, and one slightly before them. As is usual for Sanctums, their appearance from game to game is somewhat random, so do not expect to see all three in a single game.
Nearly 50 new abilities are included as part of this release, many of which can be found much earlier than Tower:27 and above through the random modifier system. The majority are available once you reach the Tower’s middle floors (11+), but some are available even in the earliest floors, so you may find new surprises.
The new demons are of course also not restricted to the new floors: though that is where the vast majority of them normally spawn, you may encounter many of them in Sanctums as rare out of depth encounters long before coming close to Tower:27. Save those Offerings!
Finally, this release also includes two requested changes: there is a new option that allows you to bypass the recently added start menu when booting up the game, and the VFX for “smite” type spells have been sped up considerably.
That’s about it for details about the new build; go grab it and get started on seeing it for yourself! Good luck in the Tower!
