However, players have met with an issue of the title constantly crashes once you enter a certain area and it turns out to be caused by a missing file called "Steam.xnb". Turns out, removal of any game files including the word "Steam" was what caused this crash.

Funnily enough, people initially head to Steam forums looking for answers on how to solve the problem with game crashes, which clearly is a reminder of Epic Games Store immediately needing a community forum for its members.

The error is eventually fixed and developer Tom Happ took Twitter to inform everyone to fix the problem with an update.

This roguelike-metroidvania hybrid title from indie developer/publisher Motion Twin has been in all sorts of news upon release. Though there is not much back-story to begin with, the player takes control of a character known only as the Prisoner.
