Did you miss any conversations on your last session in Dysmantle? To address this, the developers have added the Survivor’s Text Log screen in Update 22, which was released not long ago.

The screen presents all recent texts in-game: bulletin boards, notifications, the protagonist’s thoughts, etc. If you’ve been preoccupied with other things and have missed a few key pieces of information, go to the Survivor’s Log to read the texts again. Do take note that the text log only covers the things that have been said in your current game session, meaning that they will disappear once you save and exit.

In addition, Update 22 introduces another highly requested feature - active item swapping. After unlocking all of the four tool slots, cycling through the items by pressing the item button repeatedly is definitely a time-consuming endeavor. Well now, you can long-press the item button and the game pauses to open up the “Swap Items” menu, giving you quick access to the things that you need the most.
