Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Heretic's Fork » Heretic’s Fork | Abyssal Update

Are you ready for October Update? 👺

Before you get into today’s update, we hit 1,000 reviews earlier this month, and we’re at a staggering 1,100+ reviews! 🙌 and for that, we’d like to send each one of you a warm THANK YOU from both 9FingerGames and Ravenage Games for the massive support we got on this game ❤️

Now let’s dive into the hot stuff 👺

➕ Torment mode

Unlocked after the credit sequence. Allows for an extra challenge after beating the game.
Torment progress is per character, and the player unlocks each torment mode subsequently. This mode is entirely optional. Runs in torment mode reward extra credits and higher scores with 5 new achievements for beating each torment level on any character, More rewards are in progress.

When torment mode is unlocked, the player will also gain access to a new folder, allowing them to buy 4 new cards for high cost. These are powerful cards and will not be available until torment mode is unlocked, they will also not appear in the collection until they have been unlocked.

    The desktop wallpaper can be changed in the in-game desktop, with more wallpapers coming soon™️.
