Known Issues:

Framerate issues due to a lack of optimization in NPCs and lighting.

Carrot, an Onion Knight, freaks out if he is killed while he is still wearing his hat. He'll stop once it's stolen.

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.

Some ground colliders do not align properly with the ground, making the lower parts of character models appear to sink below the ground. This is a fault in the terrain engine we're using, 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.
