Hi folks,

We just deployed a DemonCrawl update that includes 10 new items, a flexible item tag system, a new special chest, and more! Check out the full patch notes below for more details.

We now plan to shift gears and begin working on one last special event for 2020 - we want it to be as big (or bigger) than our recent Halloween event, so we definitely have our work cut out for us! Also, we expect to release one more port this year. More news on that front soon.

Enjoy the patch!
