Developer message
Hello! I am the developer of Rusted Moth.

We are currently working hard on the final major update.
There are no plans for a sequel to this work, but this major update is so large that it can be called a sequel!
However, I got a little too excited and created too much content, so I ended up needing a little more time to finish implementing and polishing it up.

But it’s not all bad. Due to the postponement, the major update and console version will be released at the same time!
