The developer revealed the details of the latest update. Patch 1.2.2 brought brand-new content, bug fixes, and general improvements. Full Broodmother Equipment Set has been added along with an additional effect for Broodmother Mutation. Players can also purchase the May Sign Set from the Science Shop.
