  • You’ll now get access to the Cavern level a you beat the game for the first time. Look for this place inside the Graveyard… This whole new level is filled with nasty traps, perilous lava pools and violent new enemies. New ways to die!
  • Community suggestion Custom Mode will be now unlocked after few runs (no need to beat the final boss anymore). 
    Custom options were adjusted accordingly.
  • A new boss has arrived. Right after the Cavern, you will have access to this epic battle, so be prepared!
  • A new shiny Skinning system was added to the game, giving you access to more than 50 new character outfits

    They will just drop as classic blueprints from existing enemies (in higher difficulty modes) and bosses. You might also find a few ones in specific hidden area of the game. You can customize your outfits in the Flask Room.
  • 10 new enemies types were added to the world! Some will wait for you in the Cavern or the hidden level, but many were also added to Hard / Very hard / Expert / Nightmare modes, for your sadistic pleasure. They will gladly bury your face into the ground, burn you to death and slice all your useful organs.
