No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games lesser-known puzzle-platformer, The Last Campfire, received an unexpected update today. The update, dubbed 1.6, introduces not just your run-of-the-mill quality of life and performance improvements but brand new content.

Included are 20% more puzzles for players to sink their teeth into alongside a new feature that allows any of The Last Campfire‘s puzzles to be replayed on-demand. Hello Games hasn’t stopped there, though, rolling out a slew of gameplay tweaks, such as higher frame rates and improved controller support. There are also performance improvements heading to all platforms.
