Hey everyone! The folks at Breadcrumbs Interactive just released Yaga version 1.1 on Apple Arcade and PC, otherwise known as The Bad Fate Update, so to celebrate we’re dropping a new enemy profile video on Likho. After an exciting and successful launch, the team at Breadcrumbs Interactive took the time to listen closely to all the player feedback over the months. The Bad Fate Update is an overhaul of all the gameplay systems: Bad Luck, Combat, and Crafting along with a ton of quality of life improvements. Ivan can now run, so that means you don’t have to tap that roll button as often. The Bad Luck system is fairer and only enacted when your hammer breaks. Hammers can now be repaired by the way and there are a lot of new combinations to craft. Tools, the secondary weapons, have more abilities making them more useful. There are new brand new game modes, providing new difficulty levels. Plus new perks, a larger mini-map option, and much much more. This is Yaga, new and improved. Out now Apple Arcade and via the Epic Games Store, this update will come to consoles later this year.
The Breadcrumbs team designed a very fancy visual to review the changes, but we’re also posting the plain text at the very bottom.
Two new game modes added: Story Mode for an easier, story tale experience, and Hardcore Mode for a tougher experience that features permanent death.
