By October 2020, the game introduced hardcore mode and Mac and Linux versions.But even then, players were pointing out Discord that the developer was disturbingly silent..

As of November 2021, all The link to that discord is broken, And could not find the server in the usual way Public search Method..The developer has not posted a message to twitter Since August 2020, and the company Facebook page There is only promotion of Infinite Black The past few years.
