Known Issues:

Framerate issues due to a lack of optimization in NPCs.
Cinnabar is wearing the wrong hat!
Clocks and TVs do not emit sound properly.
Wolves do not emit sound properly.
Cardboard box items aren't able to be picked up.
A level exit indicator in the forest area is backwards.
Carrot, an Onion Knight, freaks out if he is killed while he is still wearing his hat. He'll stop once it's stolen.

Spell Creation mode has been disabled. There was not enough time to work it into the Tamagacha system for this release. This is scheduled to be re-added in the alchemy release.
The only weapons currently able to be crafted are thrown weapons. This is merely a menu design oversight and will be fixed for an upcoming release.

The Loading Screen is offset in some areas and does not appear in VR mode. This should not cause any gameplay issues but is being fixed for a later version.
The night is too dark (and full of terrors).
Traversing long stretches of land can become tedious, looking into a gameplay design change that can alleviate that.
Enemies are unbalanced with level scaling, some levels are very easy, some are too difficult. Will work on balancing this.

Some ground colliders do not align properly with the ground, making feet appear to sink below the ground. This is a fault in our terrain engine, and we're looking into a solution.
If you equip gear before entering character creation, that gear will not display properly until leaving the area or re-equipping the gear. We might not fix this, as the player shouldn't have gear at that point.
If you experience any other issues please submit a bug report.
