use Game Devlog Summary:

Our Steam store page is up and we’ve put a wishlist button in the game. New game features added in this version (v0.8): secret companions, exclusive special move for subscribers, high combo rewards, 1 new boss, point multiplier for hit combos. We’ve also adjusted the item prices, made the graphic more colourful, improved the shop UI.  Now the game feels more fun and complete.

Secret Companions:

After beating the game, the player will acquire a random companion. At the moment there are only 2 companions available. Each has different abilities. More will be added later.
