One of many promised stretch objectives for the sport was Roguelike. Sadly, the code that was created early within the sport’s growth just isn’t at present suitable with such a gameplay (particularly a procedurally generated fort).

Swap gamers could have already observed the 1.04 replace that went reside in January. Whereas this was the final Swap replace targeted totally on efficiency, we’re not accomplished working to enhance the platform. Swap has come a good distance since launch and we’re pleased with the progress it has made, however there’s nonetheless extra to do (particularly in massive rooms/dragon towers). We’ll frequently roll out enhancements together with content material updates to make the expertise as easy as attainable
The Swap model of the sport is now additionally in step with different platforms, which means future updates for all techniques can be simpler to handle.
