Enter the Gungeon - Version 1.0.2 now available

Hey Gungeoneers, the Switch patch is now live! Thanks for bearing with us while we got this out to everyone.

Please continue to message us here on reddit or by sending an email to bugreports@dodgeroll.com if you see any problems.

Full patch notes below:

Patch 1.1.5p1

Fixed a serious crash caused by a memory leak, particularly on later floors or while entering a fateful hallway.
Fixed a bug where some item names would not appear in non-English languages.
Fixed a bug where Payday items could not be unlocked by "going loud".
Fixed a bug where the Payday follower who shoots didn't shoot.
Fixed a bug where a secret character's past could not be completed.
Fixed a bug where glass guon stones could be picked up over and over and over and over.
Fixed a bug where interacting with notes in co-op play could crash the game.
Fixed a bug where picking up two specific guns could cause both to vanish mysteriously.

Note that we'll have a small hotfix coming in the near future that will fix two specific issues. This will be patch 1.0.3 on the Switch menu but still be game version 1.1.5p1.

Fixed an issue with missing characters during the intro animation in Japanese.
Fixed an issue where changing controller types could cause some text to disappear from the controller binding menu.

- machine guns can also intercept during the enemy turn
- tanks are very resilient and cannot be easily damaged by infantry besides lancers

- their armor is thinner than that of a tank, so they can be damaged by machine gun fire

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom dev blog - Four years of development change everything

What a journey..when Monster Boy development started over 4 years ago, we had no idea that we would end up with a project spanning over 4 years, stretching into 2018! It started as a small idea. We wanted to bring back the excitement of colorful side scrolling action adventures and ended working on our biggest project ever. When Wonder Boy creator Ryuichi Nishizawa came on board, it was clear that we have a very special and rare opportunity. It would allow us to continue one of the best game series ever created. While we designed Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, we had more and more ideas which ultimately formed an incredible overall experience which we can't wait to share with you.

Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story - details on the player-created protagonist

■ What is an Instructor Knight?

An “Instructor Knight,” which is the occupation of the protagonist, is a freelance educationalist who receives requests to instruct others. As a teacher, he or she imparts knowledge and performs battle practice, and sometimes fights as a knight for his or her client.

Since the protagonist is the player’s avatar, he or she does not speak. However, based on the indirect reactions of the people around him or her, you can be certain that the protagonist is a one of a kind character.

—The ability to fight as a knight, as well as instruct, is essential to being an Instructor Knight.
—Instructor Knights often travel around various countries. The protagonist is writing a guidebook and manual based off his or her experiences.

■ Character Creation

The protagonist’s gender can be chosen as male or female. Players can also freely customize the following other items:


Choose a voice to use during actions. There are six ypes of voices—“Passionate,” “Cool,” “Villainy,” “Eccentric,” “Shy,” and “No Voice”—for both males and females.

The following voice actors are featured:

Male Protagonist: Kengo Kawanishi (all voice types)
Female Protagonist: Risa Kubota (Passionate), Mitsuki Nakae (Cool), Nanako Mori (Villainy), Tomomi Mizuma (Eccentric), Minami Iinuma (Shy)

You can choose from four types of personalities, including “Dilligent / Honest,” “Intellectual / Shy,” “Rugged / Wild,” and “Extremely Perverted.” Depending on the personality you choose, the princess’ reactions will change at various places in the scenario.

—Here is a scene with the “Dilligent / Honest” personality chosen.
—And here is that scene with the “Rugged / Wild” personality chosen.

You can enjoy different reactions for each of the four personalities. But since there are no major changes in the progress of the story based on your personality and gender, you can choose whatever you prefer to role-play.

Face Graphic

There are nine graphics for each gender with differences in age and type.

■ Battle Style

The weapon used by the protagonist is a one-handed sword. As you would expect of a knight that often wanders from battlefield to battlefield, the protagonist posseses high all-purpose attack means, and is notably balanced in offense and defense.

—Protagonist (Male)
—Protagonist (Female)
—A weapon-based standard attack. Its range is narrow, but it enables players to easily use quick consecutive attacks.
—A special move that attacks every direction. Although there is a limit to how many times it can be used, its power is tremendous.

■ The Protagonist’s Growth

By repeatedly giving the four princesses “Direct Guidance,” you will obtain items called “Knowledge Materia,” which can extend the princesses’ parameters. When using these items, the protagonist will also receive “Skill Points.”

The skill points you obtain can be used to increase basic stats like HP and attack power, as well as strengthen attack actions. A growth system where you develop the princesses and protagonist side by side is one of the key features of this game.

—A special attack from below that blows back the enemy. Enemies that touch the pillar of light will receive damage.
—Allocate skill points to strengthen the protagonist’s actions.
—Now the earlier attack has two pillars of light, making it possible to deal damage to even more enemies.

■ Guidance Diary

You can read the “Guidance Diary” from the menu screen. The Guidance Diary is gradually filled out by progressing the game and when the princess’ parameters reach certain values. Its contents consist of stories surrouding the Relic Islands, information on the princesses, and knowledge useful for clearing stages.

—The menu screen.
—Information that has been revealed will appear in the diary.

Disc Jam supports cross-platform play between PC and Switch

Coming from the press release we shared earlier...

Disc Jam is best played with others, and Nintendo Switch is making it easier than ever to connect with players both locally and online. In addition to cross-platform play between PC and Nintendo Switch...

I can't believe we are living in a time when Nintendo is totally cool with cross-platform play, and Sony isn't. That's not something I could have ever predicted.
