Fixes and tweaking has been a focus for a bit.  So while this Build doesn’t contain as much rock and roll in it, there’s been plenty of beneficial changes.
That means a better experience, which should be the focus. But adding more things is always more interesting, so there’s still a bit of that.
Cooking recipes have been on the agenda. Like things to make with existing items like berries or mushrooms, but also other new things like carrots.
The Glow Worm enemies have had a facelift, as they were looking a bit dated compared to other more recent additions.
