๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿคฉ Hurrah! ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŽ‰


I just finished uploading Soul Saga - Beta - 18.10.20!!!!!!

I want to thank everyone for all of their bug reports, and for the super fun livestream (by Roydical) I got to watch. ย All of this information is absolutely invaluable, and I got to work immediately to fix some issues and apply some feedback.

๐Ÿ“ P.S. If you ever plan to stream your play of the beta, please let me know! ย Watching videos or livestreams grants me invaluable information as I intrinsically analyze how players are expecting Soul Saga to work and function.
