Hey everyone!

If you haven't already, be sure to check out our blog post on Update 1.9.5, coming out soon. That post contains a lot of information on the main content you can expect to see in the next update. We're still working hard on that and have added a few new changes this week! Here's a look at what we've been working on.

New Death Screen

Let's face it, it was high time for a new death screen. This week we implemented a brand new death screen with the option to respawn, quit, or rage quit (quit to desktop.) We also added a nice little randomized text at the bottom of the screen. 

In-Game Options

This week we also added in a new in-game options menu so you can control graphics, sound, and gameplay options in real time. We even added some new graphics options such as motion blur, anti aliasing, and a brightness setting. 

New Quests and Items

Along with the new Sea Collector NPC will be some new quests! This week we began implementing a new quest line we are calling the "Path of the Ancients." As with most quests, there will be some nice loot at the end if you can figure out how to complete it. We've also got another Sea Collector related quest that involves a new spider boss!

We expect this update to be on the testing branch soon but we'll keep you updated when we know more! As always, we'd love to hear your feedback as well.
