Haven't played it yet, but read that at least initial monsters require a few hits to kill you (and you can run away mid-fight), so there's definitely some sort of counter/energy.
In all honesty, though, toggleable "monsters cannot detect you" aka "monsters cannot see you" aka "invisible to monsters" would be a much better cheat. I want to play this game as an exploration type of experience, but cannot be bothered with constant run'n'hide gameplay.
Patience, young one. It just updated a few hours ago.
The CH crew usually manage to get these out in a right quick fashion, and usually in top-notch quality as well. That it has yet to show means they are really busy with personal life matters (they do have lives away from CH, after all), or it's giving them a hard time in creating/updating it.
Also, complaining and trolling are two sure-fire ways of having them retire the trainer. Meaning there would never be any further updates for any of us because you couldn't act like a decent person on the internet. So, and I'm saying this as nicely as I can, would you kindly stick a cork in it?
