The Mom Genes mutation will now also increase all poison damage you deal by a large amount, on top of allowing you to summon spiderlings to fight alongside you.

May Sign Set

During the month of May, a new May Sign Set will be purchasable at the Science Shop related to Spring and the allergies that come with it.
