Hello! I love the game! However, I think I have a bug. How should I report it?

You can mention it here, or email us at-


Hope it wasn't too bad of a bug!

So I got 7 monsters, one got added after playing. However, the map doesnt show the latest monster, and I tried to find the last one to no avail. I have tried to look through every nook and cranny, but I still cannot find! Would you please help?

OH. Huh! I'll see what I can do. I'll let you know after I look into this

Does it appear after you go to sleep the next day? Also, are you playing it on Windows or Mac? I might have to have you send me the save file

It still doesnt appear after sleeping... I am playing on windows. Should I send you the save file?

I cant wait for its realese! Keep up the good work!

Thank you!!!!!! 

Hopefully soon!
