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.

Hello Adventurers!

Thanks for reporting all the issues with the latest patch.
We have fixed the most important bugs.

This should also recover save games in many cases.
To make sure the save game loading is working properly, restart Steam if it was open since the update of yesterday.

If there are still issues left, please let us know. If you want to manually check your save files, you can do that here:

UPDATE EDIT (2023-10-18): There seems to have been a little mixup while releasing the hotfix. Apparently it hasn’t been updated properly, but the fixes above should be available now. Players on the experimental branch are not affected by this. Sorry for the delay!
