Patch 1.6 Hotfixes


Darkest greetings Underlord,

At the start of this month we unleashed the My Pet Dungeon DLC and Patch 1.6, and your response to both has truly blown us away! The new game mode has met with roaring appreciation from our fans and we’re pleased that all our hard work and toil over the past few months has not gone to waste!

But the work does not stop there! With new features inevitably come new bugs; fortunately our stalwart QA volunteers and of course our ever patient community have been reporting issues left right and centre, and our development Chunders have been fixing them just as fast!

Since release we’ve pushed out hotfixes at regular intervals, but now we’re winding down to focus on upcoming content. But in case you haven’t been following thus far we’re going to provide a complete rundown of all the fixes and changes since My Pet Dungeon was unleashed.

The following list includes patch notes from these hotfixes, though additional changes are undocumented:

  • 1.6f8 – 4 April
  • 1.6f9 – 7 April
  • 1.6f10 – 10 April
  • 1.6f11 – 12 April
  • 1.6f12 – 20 April
