Night of the Dead developer, Jacktostudios, recently released a new hotfix that updates the gameplay and fixes general bugs. The developers have balanced certain objects by taking community feedback. These include the power saw, crossbow, and bolts.

They have also worked on fixing multiple bugs. One fix is for the awkward animation of the character. Another fix is for the issue where players were able to move immediately after parrying. The latter bug made the game less challenging to play.
