HALLOWEEN EVENT AND BOSS REWARD UPDATE
As the air begins to chill and the nights become longer, our beloved trees become creepier. In these singularly dark hours, new enemies arise on the beanstalks. They appear first at HalloBean.
Across the globe, rumors of dangerous forests and trees have popped up suggesting that the woods are haunted by incidents of years past. Some trees are said to be haunted by ghosts roaming the woods at night.
Greetings Stalkers! Our first Halloween Event starts today! From now until November 2, you’ll have the chance to get an exclusive Trophy and a few other naughty treats. For that, you’ll need to collect various candies, which you can do by:
- Defeating HalloBean enemies,
- Climbing on hidden branches,
- Solving challenges,
- Crafting advanced weapons.
On the haunted trees, where rituals were once held, in order to treat the scared stalkers, we offer various candies to help your way;
- Blue candy: Heals 3 points of health.
- Red candy: Removes 5 points of toxin.
- Yellow candy: Grants you 5 seconds of invulnerability.
And the chance to complete new exclusive Steam achievements.
Fall might be full of color, but when night falls, the forest can be a scary place. Dark trees, eerie sounds, and a cold that takes your breath away.
So take care and happy stalkings!
BOSS REWARD UPDATE
New boss rewards:
Each boss provides a unique upgrade. After complaints about the limited inventory space, we came up with a solution. By completing the first boss, you will get 2 extra resource slots transforming your inventory layout from 2×5 to 3×4. For the second boss, you will get an extra tool slot bringing you to a total of 12 resources and 3 tool slots. These upgrades work retroactively, meaning that if you have already defeated the bosses, you will get the inventory upgrades right away. We are also planning on expanding the inventory with future bosses.
Now, when unlocking a new book page, it will be shown immediately in the Book of Crafts.
A bookmarker is now displayed on locked or freshly unlocked pages.
Save system changes:
The items will be saved by their IDs instead of their names (for name-changing reasons that might come up later).
The health bar is now pulsing with gold and silver colors while the player is invincible. The current health is shown with gold and the remaining time from invincibility is displayed with an emissive overlay.
The player can heal themselves during invincibility.
Fixed a bug that made certain desert levels generate only one branch.
Fixed a bug that made certain items not drop the correct loot.

Grenades now behave as intended on all surfaces.
Grenades don’t interact with invisible colliders anymore.

The stronger snitches spawning from the snitch hive were replaced with regular ones.
Item scanner and ammo requester now have proper scales on extraction points.
