A new mode is added:

There is also a recent Flowstone Saga update on Kickstarter. So, in addition to game difficulty options, they have a feature called “Hold Mode”. Which is selectable before starting a new game, and anytime in-game.
In “Hold Mode”, battles are no longer real-time. But you can still move pieces around, and have access to all the same powers. However there is no ‘gravity’ pulling pieces down. Therefore, enemies will not move or act in real-time.
You have total freedom to plan your next move carefully. Then, once you lock a piece in (and only then), the enemy turn gauges will increase slightly.

With 3 years of development behind the team. They are raising money to continuing polishing and improving the game. Due to adding more art, animation, music, and features. With a target release in Summer 2022 for Linux, Mac, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch.
