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.

Horde Hunters » v. 0.5.7

Hello, and Happy New Year! We’re starting the year with a rather sizeable update. Read about the bigger changes below and the smaller things in the full changelog after that.

New party member and changes around companions

The Priest is available as a new hire, setting the ground on fire.

In addition, all party members now have their respective booster item. These items won’t be available on level up unless you have them in the roster. Barracks will now have all the available characters for hire regardless of map and the defend missions may have any of them as a reward option.

Select your preferred weapon and character bonuses

There’s more choices now as far as weapon and character bonuses go. Hoping the list of options will grow in the future but already this feels like a big step in the right direction in making the runs more unique.

Cursor styles

This was requested some time ago but I never got around to adding it in. Now
there’s a few different cursor icons and colors to choose from in the settings!

Endless Village competition with Steam Gift Cards for winners

The leaderboards have been reset from scores made with versions earlier than v. 0.5.5. To repopulate them I thought a contest would be in order (Update: All prior version scores have been wiped).

The top 3 scores made in Endless Village map will be rewarded with Steam Gift Cards. You have 2 weeks to compete, until the end of Jan 17th. Please take a screenshot of the end screen for proof of win just in case. I will contact the winners on Steam by sending a friend invite as that’s how I can send the gift cards through. Excited to see how high the scores get. Good luck everyone!

  1. Winner – 25 EUR Steam digital gift card
  2. 2nd place – 10 EUR Steam digital gift card
  3. 3rd place – 5 EUR Steam digital gift card

On another note, I’m looking for great screenshots to use in marketing. I’ll award Steam Gift Cards for these as well. See the game’s Discord for more details on that.
