Tales of Kenzera: ZAU isn’t available yet, but there was a limited-time demo made available on Steam. It seems the devs behind this title were paying very close attention to what players had to say about the demo, as they’re using that feedback to tweak some areas of the game.

In an interview with DualShockers, Tales of Kenzera: ZAU lead animator Griffin Warner opened up about some of the changes that will be present in the final version of the game. It appears one area players can expect to see adjusted is visual clues as to what will and won’t kill you with a single touch.

“…at the same time, it is one of the things that has been a challenge. We have a lot of hazards in the game, like spikes that instantly kill a player, and when freezing the waterfall, we have a spikey motif there and a lot of players thought that would kill them, so the messaging there was all wrong, and we’ve had to address that a little bit since the demo”.
