Based on what I can see, crafting is pretty time consuming: you need to have a lot of food to make certain things. Though, it does let one do some particularly interesting things: such as create katanas (Which based on what I know are currently only available as artifact weapons) or make weapons with stronger shafts (Though I'm not sure what the point is for that.)
Now that life has normalized to a degree, I find myself back here. I didn't realize it, but apparently IVAN had released a brand new version in 2020.
So here I am, staring at the controls again. I've played through this game so many times; but now I'm learning that there's all this new stuff involved. There's a *crafting* system now? How does this work, exactly?
Hey there. Surprise surprise, I'm still trudging around; and when I came back to see IVAN has updated... I've been too pleased to play it again for old memories. After getting through a really unpleasant experience in the Tomb of Xinroch; I found this amulet and a Amulet of Life Protection inside of a steel wall and a steel box. What does this do, exactly?
