If you have arrow keys, you can use shift + arrows to move diagonally.

You can also change the keybindings (from the main menu or the game menu -> keybindings).

Press H in game to see the keymap. Press a binded key in that screen to see a description of the command. In that screen you can also press shift / alt / control to see what bindings need those keys.

Release 29 (02-Mar-2020)
  • AI tweaking:
  • Consumable / device usage tweaked, especially for companions.
  • AI tries first to target hostile creatures that are not summoned or animated.
  • AI can unlit its lightsource when fleeing.
  • AI can unlit furniture lightsources to ensure safe resting / sleeping in dark areas.
  • Companion morale presets tweaked, hopefully resulting in better survivability.
  • Killing friendly creatures no longer gives experience points.
  • Weakened the necrotic damage effect that can happen from sitting on a throne or drinking from a well. The old effect could instakill characters in full health.
  • Updated the descriptions of the item enchantment scrolls:
  • Armors: Every enchantment point decreases the enchantment chance by 15 percentage points.
  • Weapons: Every enchantment point, elemental damage point, holy property, vampiric property and on-hit effect decreases the enchantment chance by 10 percentage points (used to be 15).
  • Log entry when your companion learns a new talent (companions level up at the same time as the player).
  • Fixed a bug where animated / summoned creatures would sometimes disappear from view after animation.
  • Fixed a small bug in ASCII mode.
  • A new lore book, "Legends & Lore", a list of ascended players.
  • Some typos fixed.
Already a couple of god-tier wins in the leaderboard.

This didn't get in time for the April 1st update, but added an unlockable game mode to the game: if you manage to get the ultimate ending in under 3 hours, you'll unlock a full Star Wars -themed mode with open world exploration, thousands of planets, quests and whatnot.

Does getting the "ultimate ending" mean beating the game?

Zorbus April 12, 2020 06:19

Yes, means that you ascend as the Overgod. Only one player has managed to do that so far: Leaderboard.

The Star Wars thing was really just an April Fools' joke that didn't get ready in time.
