Another Crab’s Treasure Update Patch Notes June 12

A compilation of the last few patches for Another Crab’s Treasure, which released on April 25, 2024.

The complete patch notes are below, in descending order, from latest to oldest:





Minor Patch June 12


Most important change: we caved to audience pressure and you can scroll around on the Location tab now! View all the pretty art! Go nuts!


Patch Notes:



  • You can now move and zoom the map on the Location menu. Look at all the pretty art, go nuts!!!



  • Fixed multiple SFX and voice lines in Voltai's fight being played silently
  • Fixed multiple instances of NPCs persisting in a spot after having moved on in the story
  • Improvements to camera collision, especially when using Dispatch
  • Removed some fun visuals from the Felix Cube, as it would occasionally cause weird player physics interactions. Sad.
  • You can no longer use Self Repair to restore Shell Health reduced from self-inflicted damage such as Munch and Twinkle.
  • Removed access to Assist Settings from Title, as assist settings are saved specifically to individual save files.
  • Game can no longer be paused during the credits (esc key will skip them normally). This eliminates a bug where killing Kril via the pause menu during the credits could result in weird behavior.



  • Improved the save backup system, increasing the scenarios in which it'll replace an unusable file with a backup if available.
  • Eliminated a very rare scenario where a save file could show up as corrupt in the main menu despite being technically playable.



  • Fixed a ghost hitbox on a colossal late-game boss.



  • Small geometry updates to Expired Grove, Unfathom, and Bleached City
  • Fix geometry in Scuttleport that could lead to the player getting stuck
  • Fixed a content skip in Expired Grove that was a little too easy (don't believe it was useful for speedrunners, don't kill us!)
  • Removed floating props in Slacktide



  • Updated translations for "Lv" across various languages
  • Updated description of Rubber Band to reflect that it doesn't make you fully immune to electricity damage anymore.
  • Updated credits.



  • Stowaway Weight on Sea Cucumber Reduced from 6 to 5
  • A certain late-game tentacled boss's HP increased by ~14%



Minor Patch v1.0.102.5 May 23

Got a fresh new patch for you!
Most important thing here is some save file safety fixes! We'll occasionally get reports of save files being corrupted for one reason or another. Some of these we're working to fix, and others are much less preventable, due to hardware crashes and such. So we figured a good place to start is to add a backup system.
If you ever need to access your backup file for some reason, it can be found in the same folder as your save file - but the game should load it automatically if something goes wrong with your main save.



  •  Added a save backup system that should help stem the tide (haha) of people losing progress due to save corruption. Ideally in a worst case scenario, folks will only lose one save point's worth of progress instead of ruining their entire file.
  •  Fixed an issue where having no readable files in your save list would show "new game" button even if some of them existed, but were corrupt



  • Fixed an issue where a certain colossal lategame enemy would not release you from a grab properly
  • You can now always use Spearfishing on said colossal enemy. It used to be only when they were in a specific animation, but this was unclear to players.
  • Fixed an issue where your hammer could attack as if it was the standard fork after a cutscene.
  • Fixed an issue where enemies could hit your dropped shell to hurt you. This was especially prevalent in the final boss fight.



  • Improved collision in Roland's arena for clipping issues
  • Improved collision in the endgame sequence



Emergency Patch v1.0.102.4a May 17

Hey gamers! Nick, who normally makes the update thumbnails, is out of the office today. Could you tell?
We just located a bug that's urgent enough to skip the normal Beta process, so I'm uploading the fix here as an emergency patch.
  • 🔥 Fixed an issue where upon loading in, your location would very frequently be reverted to the previous Moon Snail Shell, even if you saved & quit somewhere else. This was particularly messing up people's progress in locations where Moon Snail Shells were few and far between, such as The Unfathom.


That's literally it! Hope you enjoy!
Note that this is not the total extent of our save issues - this issue would exclusively affect the player's position, and not damage their progress in any other way such as reverting any killed bosses. We continue to hunt down other issues related to save files, and the community on Discord has been extremely valuable so far in this process. Thank you for your patience!



Hotfix v1.0.102.4 May 16

New patch coming in hot! Thanks as always to our beta branch players for testing this in advance!
Our biggest priority right now is investigating the save file corruption happening to a small percentage of players. It's not going to be easy, but we're fast-tracking some features that will hopefully get us better information from user error reports and minimize the damage, even if finding the real source of the issue takes longer.



  • Better error reporting for save file issues to help us track it down
  • Unique Broadsword Rangoon no longer respawns in Expired Grove
  • Fixed Hermit Mimic acting strangely in Open Ocean
  • Fixed an issue where getting your hammer destroyed would also cause your DEF stat to not respect your currently worn shell.

  • "Another Chance" now properly grants invincibility to let you survive multi-hit grabs that you revived during
  • Prevented "windbox" hitboxes such as the Frogfish vacuum attack from affecting the player while climbing
  • Fixed an issue where getting grabbed while climbing would disrupt the grabber's physics
  • Fixed an issue where Flotsam Vale's Inkerton could be interacted with prior to ambushing you.

  • Added 16:9 resolutions to the Resolutions list for those with ultrawide monitors who wish to play at standard resolution



  • Mantis Punch teleport should behave more consistently



  • Fixed a bug where Magista could hit you with a ghost hitbox after she's done her spin attack

  • Updated Border colliders in New Carcinia
  • Removed a problematic urchin in Slacktide

  • Improved collision in Voltai's Arena to reduce cases in which Kril phases through it



  • Fixed a mis-typed italics tag present in all languages except English
  • Improved a variety of Russian translations including a misgendered lobster in Slacktide



  • Stowaway Weight on Sea Cucumber Reduced from 6 to 5
  • A certain late-game tentacled boss's HP increased by ~14%



  • Highlighted the text that tells you that you actually need two Old World Whorls to upgrade your charges after the first time.



Minor Patch v1.0.102.3 May 10

  • We updated our audio plugins to hopefully fix an issue where some users had no audio whatsoever.
