Muck, the recently released roguelike survival game from YouTuber and developer Dani, has received its second and much larger update. What may have started out as a joke response to a YouTube comment now has over 22,000 overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam. Looks like Muck is here to stay.

The second update in a week, the second Muck update adds a new boss, Gronk, as well as a bunch of new items and weapons. There are a few balance changes, as well, which have been designed to make the game harder.

First up, the new boss – the Gronk. Wielding two massive swords, Gronk is another tricky boss, much like Big Chunk. This just adds to the overall progression in the game and gives players some extra to aim for.

Like the new boss, some new items have also been added in by Dani, including Gronks Sword (of course), Elemental Arrows, the Wolf Armor Set, and the ability to craft some delicious Mushroom Soup.

To balance out all the additional new items, including the new powerups like Enforcer, Juice and the Spooo Bean, the game’s difficulty has also been increased. Muck was always meant to be janky and hard. It’s a roguelike survival game, after all.

A couple of bosses and monsters have had their damage buffed, and some of the more powerful powerups have been nerfed to make it harder to reach complete god-like status in the game.

Other changes include new Dark Oak Trees, Coal Deposits, and different world generation that gives each new world a different atmosphere, mostly the color of the sky and the random particle effects.

Because of the massive success of Muck, it’s likely the game will continue to receive updates. Dani has already pushed ahead two updates in the last week after the game’s release. If more players keep coming, he’ll likely keep updating.

At the bottom of the Steam update notes page, the dev does note that he is currently working on some kind of story (???) as well as an actual ending to the game, which at least means Muck just won’t keep spiraling out of content control.

You can download Muck now, for free, on Steam, or check out Dani’s other game Karlson. Karlson was Dani’s original main project which has now been somewhat overshadowed by Muck. Can’t hurt too much, though, as Muck is approaching 30,000 positive reviews. Easy!
