Image & Form Games have updated their excellent roleplaying card game, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, with some free new features to play with.

Note: You can see my thoughts from the release here.

Making it into this update is a New Game Plus mode, unlocked by completing the story. It allows you to play again, while keeping most non-story progress gained from your previous playthrough. Additionally, there's a new higher difficulty setting "Legend Remix", it's not just more challenging but also contains some "gameplay twists of its own" although it's only available for New Game Plus. They also added a sweet art gallery, containing a bunch of unseen concept art, illustrations and a jukebox.

In the below video from the developer, they have a chat about some of the new bits:

Always nice to see an already great game get even better, it will be interesting to see if they plan on expanding it even further. I absolutely loved it! Definitely going to be jumping back in to play some more, I do love a challenge.

You can pick it up on GOG and Steam.

Best game this year for me

Good news! After finishing the game some weeks ago, It was very nice but I was kind of frustrated to not be able to buy all items and cards in my game. So until now I was farming to get the full set (items, upgrades...) in Legend difficulty.
So for sure, I will play this NG+!

Edit: I checked, the update is not available on GOG yet for the Linux build.
