  • The barbarian now has the same skin color for the head and the body!
  • The animation of pulsation (light and emissive) of the mushrooms have been corrected.
  • The pressure plate fragments are no longer « on ».

Golden Panic and Linux

Lately, We had quite a lot of feedback on problems occurring on Linux and we want to make it clear that you have not been forgotten. As a reminder we expect to release Golden Panic only on Windows at first, The goal being not to leave the game on a platform that we do not own and that we could not test seriously. For the next update we will continue to fix some bugs to prepare Golden Panic release, those that are specific to Linux will arrive soon after when the game will be stable.

Ps: This week we will still try to do our best to correct the very troublesome problem of float parsing which blocks the loading of the dungeons.
