SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech is the latest game in the SteamWorld series, and it’s out for Nintendo Switch today! It’s a Fantasy Card Battle RPG! I made this guide to help players find all the items, secrets, and handle all the bosses! It’s still slightly a work in progress (the game came out today) but I’ll keep updating it. You can help me finish by helping out with the cards spreadsheet!
2019-06-18: Added a nice searchable, sortable table of weapons and effects. Thanks to everyone who helped with the spreadsheet! Added preliminary card table. Need to tidy it up.
Added some official art to pretty things up. Added secret locations to some of the areas in Walkthrough.
SteamWorld Quest Quick Start Guide
You might think grinding wouldn’t matter much for a card battle game, only letting you get new cards. However, cards’ affects are based on your characters’ base stats, which grow significantly each level. If you’re stuck, don’t be afraid to grind, even one level can make a large difference.
Don’t worry about missing things; you can replay chapters later on, getting the opportunity to fully revisit the story, treasure, and enemy formations even if you miss something.
Difficulty can be changed at any time; feel free to adjust it up or down at will!
There’s no real penalty for losing; you’re shot back to the last Gilgamech statue you healed at but you’ll have to try again of course.
Escaped Chasm is a brand new, Pay What You Want game on itchio by Temmie Chang. You probably know her from Undertale, but this game is an unrelated project by Temmie herself!
I believe this guide is complete (the game’s fairly small), but as always if I missed anything please let me know in the comments! Or just let everyone know what you thought of the game.
Escaped Chasm Mini-Review
Escaped Chasm is a tiny but very engrossing little game. For the price of free and the light time investment of ~20 minutes for a playthrough, it’s very much worth a playthrough.
The game’s heavier and sadder themes may be a surprise to those already familiar with Temmie’s work, which makes the early impact of the game quite the hook.
While short the game makes great use of it’s time and leaves you feeling for our Lonely Protagonist. Some Temmie-Brand bits of humor are dotted throughout,
especially in the Developer Room!
While something of a prelude to a more complete game that may or may not happen, Escaped Chasm is a very intriguing romp through a puzzling world. Here’s hoping we’ll eventually see a follow up to answer the many questions the game leaves us with.
Escaped Chasm Walkthrough
Note there’s no save feature, it’s short and meant to be played in one go. Turn off Dash in the options before playing, it causes a bug and does not increase your walking speed.
The game doesn’t have combat or what would normally be considered puzzles, so play at your own pace and figure things out before resorting to the guide. I’ve written the fastest way to finish each day (for replays) and noted extra items to collect here.
You can hold down the Z key to speed up dialog you’ve already seen. Do not press X when at the Diary Menu, it ends the game. If the game crashes when you watch the TV, turn off dashing in the options menu. You can also control with the mouse instead of the keyboard.
All you have to do to finish this day is check on Melody (her snake) and read your diary, then you can go to bed.

Mega Miracle Force (メガミラ) just released in Japan! Just like Makai Wars prior (and several Neptunia games) I figured I’d do a little import guide to help other players get going! This guide is still very much work in progress so expect big updates.
Feel free to contribute any information that’s missing or ask questions in the comments, or join our Discord to discuss Mega Miracle Force, Neptunia series, or other games in general!
Mega Miracle Force is a Compile Heart universe crossover game, with Hyperdimension Neptunia characters as well as characters and enemies from many of Compile Heart’s other games. It plays much like Makai Wars as a gachapon based mini-SRPG with auto-battle and various character-enhancing systems. In a very Compile Heart quirk, you equip CG images from the various games as “equipment”.
2019-04-26: Added an Abridged Guide from @WaifuWarrior in the Discord! Green Heart was added to the game.
2019-02-07: Uzume and Tiara were added to the gacha. No rate up.
2019-02-06: Much more info added to the spreadsheet, best current CG reqs added to Items section.
2019-02-04: Starting to add more gameplay info about CGs, achievements etc. Icons were added to the spreadsheet for Characters/Items/CGs (Link Cards), thanks to everyone’s help on that! Info from the sheet is being worked into the guide. Added a lot of the item descriptions just now.
2019-02-03: Pseudo Cloud Save workaround discovered.
2019-02-02: Updated info on the save transfer feature (it’s not REALLY a cloud save yet), how to emulate the game (you don’t need a specific android version, just a recent one). Recommend android 7.1.2 for emulation, 5.1 freezes sometimes. Images added to the Characters/CGs/Items spreadsheet, thanks!
2019-02-01: Much more complete characters list/spreadsheet, thanks to the contributors! Added info on how to get the game working in emulator.

Mega Miracle Force Abridged Guide
From @WaifuWarrior#9296 in our Discord Server, here’s a quick guide to what you need to know; the game’s pretty simple and easy so this simple strategy will do you for almost any stage.
This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the Valentine’s Day Event (2019) information. See the main guide for other events and general game information. Feel free to add any of my guides to your homescreen for easy access, and offline loading of guides you’ve used (on supported devices)!
Total Cost: 625,500 roses!!!! Fusion Materials: 3050 Seaweed, 640 clams, 275 Urchins
Time: over 30 days worth of max level crab casts or 626 ad watches, plus 82 hours of manual Urchin collection
Making this tie for one of the most expensive ever, and everyone starts from scratch
How It Works
Estimated Difficulty: Extremely high. Over 600,000 candy required.
Apparently we were told candy would carry over to the next event. I personally do not trust this at all given the multiple times they’ve gone back or attempted to go back on that.
Slow rollout starting 2019-01-29, slow rollouts mean it can take up to a week to get it
It’s a return to the old “crab” style events; it’s in the Saltwater tank, the Hermit Crab is back and can be cast 10 times per day for free
Theme, Dye, and Costume for coralite will be included like old times!
17 new fish + 1 IAP. 1 “Quest” fish unlocked by completing a vague quest, just like Egypt/Pirate/2nd Anniversary events. If you missed those you can check out those guides for how they worked.
2017 fish are back too.
2018 fish/coral are NOT back, except Pygmy Whales
New attendance mission with 5 new rewards for daily check ins up to 20 days
Valentine’s Day Event Roadmap
First, note all your candies are gone (Halloween stole them) so you’re starting from 0. You need 200 candies to buy the Banquet Hall Dye to unlock the crab, which should be your first step. Watching 2 ads is enough, though you should keep tapping candy for the 50 candy Quest.
With 200 roses collected, close the main menu and tap the painter’s palette, then the Dye tab to get the Banquet Hall Dye and Crab. Tap the Event tab again to get the crab, it’s free real estate.
With the Dye and Crab purchased, you should be casting it as often as possible, up to 10 times per day (you can recharge it halfway for 100 pearls, a total rip-off so don’t).
The crab is the fastest and easiest way to get candy, especially without a macro (which requires Nox Player and a PC or Mac). Keep the dye equipped, because otherwise you can’t use the crab. Don’t bother tapping roses unless you’re charging the crab, it’s seriously a drop in the ocean compared to ads and the crab. Only if you’re using a macro should you try otherwise.
To make tapping candy easier, store all fish but 5 or more Jellyfish or Clownfish. They stay in a small area and are easy to tap.
Level up the crab the instant you can each time, it’s hard to overstate how critical it is to completing this style of event.
Complete each step of the Quest as soon as you can, as a couple steps require you to perform tasks after unlocking the step.
With the help of the ads you should be able to get the Hermit Crab to level 6-8 within the first 24 hours, after which you can focus more on collecting the fish. Just be sure to finish upgrading the crab once you have the 30 fish required for the final levels.
Valentine’s Day 2019 Hidden Fish
The event’s not released yet, so we don’t know the specifics yet. Here’s a list of the fish that I can see from the preview image, the names are made up.
Candy Goldfish (Hidden)
Watch 15 Event ads for roses
Couple Kissing Gourami (Hidden)
Equip Banquet Hall Dye and use Volcanic Eruption skill 3 times
Bouquet Sea Slug
Own 5 Lace Spadefish
Own 5 Candy Goldfish
Couple Lobster (Hidden)
Have a Candy Nautilus in your tank for 10 minutes
The game has to be open and on screen for these kinds of unlocks. You can still play the game though.
Own 5 Couple Lobster
Own 20 Valentine’s 2019 Fish
Parfait Puffer (Hidden)
Equip Banquet Hall Dye and use crab skill 25 times
Couple Seahorse (Hidden)
Equip Sweet Box costume and make one Parfait Puffer
Own 5 Parfait Puffer
Own 5 Couple Seahorse
Heart Oarfish (Hidden)
Equip Romantic Ocean Theme and take 1 picture of every Candy/Couple fish
None of the corals or fish are available, except the Pygmy Whales. They’re in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly.
A Pair of Pygmy Right Whales
2 Wedding Town Whales
Valentine’s 2017 Fish
These are also in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly. They all cost fusion materials (see the fusion guide) plus 2 2019 Valentine’s fish.
Pink Juvenile Pinnate Spadefish
Pink Striped Marlin
Pink Whale Shark
Wedding Town Whale
Valentine’s Day 2019 IAP Fish
Not required to unlock any other fish
This is another 20 day set of rewards just like the New Year’s Gift. Also like New Year’s Gift, you frustratingly only get a single one of each item and can do nothing to accelerate how fast you get anything beyond longing in once a day. Hopefully we have more than 20 days unlike the NYG at least.
Valentine’s Harp Coral

Gentleman Flamingo Coral
Log in 5 days
Baby Pink Whale
Log in 10 days
Lady Flamingo Coral
Log in 15 days
Baby Heart Sunfish
Log in 20 days
Valentine’s Parade Event Quest
Much simpler than the separate tank quests, the Valentine’s Day one is only a quest to unlock the Cupid Girl fish. Note you have to complete these in order.
Decorate the Party
Tap 50 roses
Own 1 of each Candy fish
Yes that is the requirement, there are no candies to get, I don’t know why people keep asking this. Just do what is said on the requirements in the guide and totally ignore the ingame UI text, it is terrible and misleading.
Who is the best couple
After this quest unlocks, make one of each “couple” fish
La-Mulana 2’s PC release snuck up on…just about everyone, and so I haven’t had time to make a fully detailed guide like my old Axiom Verge guide, but I thought I’d get started since I couldn’t find much info and I got really, REALLY stuck. WIP as I complete the game myself and flesh it all out, check back for updates!
Update: The wiki’s fairly complete and I’ve been a lot less able to play the game than I’d hoped, so for now I’m shelving this
As a Metroidvania, La-Mulana 2 can be quite confusing, so as always in addition to the content of the guide, feel free to pop in my Discord Server or post in the comments below to ask questions or share info!
Here there be spoilers. The game’s huge and writing a spoiler-free walkthrough is pretty much beyond my time-allotment for now. Read carefully and I suggest only reading when you’re stuck.
Title: La-Mulana 2 Platform: PC Developer: NIGORO Publisher: AGM Playism Languages: Japanese, English, Simplified Chinese Release date: 2018-07-30 Length: Long (Likely >40 hours) Genre: Metroidvania
2018-08-12: Majorly expanded the item & item location list, starting to work on a map though it’s too ugly to share just yet; tomorrow probably! Added some boss info to Shrine of Frost Giants. My La-Mulana 2 streams have continued too if you want to see the footage!
2018-08-05: Started a video walkthrough. Added Divine Fortress. Added and fleshed out Items section. Greatly expanded the walkthrough, though there’s still much, much more to come. Added pictures of all the wall murals I’ve found, since I’m sure they’re a puzzle.
2018-08-04: Added info on the PS4 controller bug, and a workaround. Expanded the shops in the walkthrough. Finished La Mulana Ruins walkthrough.
2018-08-03: Published La-Mulana 2 guide
La-Mulana 2 Quickstart Tips & Tricks
Save often. If you beat a boss, get a new item, or do almost anything, save. La-Mulana 2 will have (almost) no mercy. Though it will save continue points automatically at save points you fast travel to, but these won’t persis forever. So save.
You can fast-travel at any time, to any unlocked place. Sometimes this is the only way to escape a certain death, and may even solve some puzzles.
Similarly, you can heal by fast traveling to Village of Departure at any time and resting in the hotsprings. Easily La-Mulana 2’s greatest mercy. Otherwise the only way to heal is to find a healing fairy (later on), or “level up” with experience.
The blue meter below your HP is your “experience”. When you get a “level” your health is refilled fully, but nothing else happens. There is no track of your “levels”, it’s really just a health restore method.
La-Mulana 2 is brutal. Expect traps at every corner, expect death, try not to get too frustrated. It can be healthy to take breaks and revisit areas later. With a fresh mind you might find something you missed.
Read (Y button on Xbox controller) every save point pedestal before leaving; this registers them in the Holy Grail’s fast travel menu.
Most bosses you can just leave the room from. Sometimes this is the intended way to handle them; if a boss seems impossible, you’re probably just not supposed to fight it yet. Explore elsewhere.
Some items must be equipped to use (or unequipped to turn off). Pay extra attention to your “apps” menu, as you can only hold so many apps. Create different sets for exploring/scanning if you run out of space.
There are sequence breaks (as more or less always in a Metroidvania), but they make La-Mulana 2 drastically harder until you’re back on track. Avoid them until a second playthrough IMO.
Surprise Fish, surprisingly, are not abundant from what I’ve played. Other surprises, however, are common. Huzzah!
