Noita 1.0 - Sauna Update - Nov 24 2020


The 15th update is out! This time we've focused on game balance, improvements and bug fixes, but there's also a lot of new stuff to discover and experiment with.

Among the highlights are a new well-hidden biome, a new building to chill in called Sauna, and changes that make Temple of the Art a bit more interesting. Biome modifiers are now communicated more clearly when entering a biome. The whole game has again been localized to ten different languages.

A large part of the user interface library used by Noita is now also available to mods, and there's a new menu that mods can use as a common location for their settings.
