New Release: v0.148 (Alpha & Weekly!)

Konbanwa, comrades. We have made considerable strides (finally) with a new system for overhauling the game's overlaying image systems, which will hopefully improve performance quite a bit in builds to come as well as make maps look more interesting and dynamic in the process.

This is a work in progress, so parts of the game have these new improvements and parts of the game remain how they were before. In addition, I've got some cool new fishing features launching this week and a million other bug fixes.

Hope you enjoy!

Version 0.148 - 10-9-2020
Added a new, super-rare and extra challenging fish to the game, along with a reward for catching it
You can now get a unique reward from a new NPC who appears in Newlight for catching an especially large seabear
Added the remainder of the cove residents back in to the post-siege cove areas
Added new dialogue to the Gertrude’s workstation if she died, and fixed an issue where interacting with the forge could trigger dialogue with Gertrude even if she wasn’t alive

Fixed an issue where Quinn could remain in the bath house after the final siege
Fixed a sprite issue with Mercy’s bed
Fixed an issue where the monument could be prevented from appearing after the final siege even if members of the cove had died
Fixed an issue where returning to the cliff tops in Witchdale after rejecting Moon’s essence could result in getting stuck

Hi everyone, happy weekend! As is tradition 149 times in a row, I have a new release, carefully baked just for your pleasure.

New Release: v0.150!!!

What the HECK, version 150!

This week's build continues last week's optimization efforts and extends the visual upgrades to a number of maps across the game, but perhaps more excitingly, it also begins a brand new side-story set in all-new explorable territory!

This side-adventure prominently features everyone's favorite innkeeper, Leite, but it also promises to reveal some more fairly deep game lore about a couple of other mysterious characters, so I hope this catches your attention.

The area is fully explorable now and already contains some new lore, but's still a WIP, so there's a lot more to come.

If this wasn't exciting enough, we are going to have another big announcement coming soon, so stay tuned.

Version 0.150 - 10-23-2020
Added a new large, explorable region to the game (WIP)
Added the beginnings of a major new optional side-chapter that will reveal a lot of hidden lore
Updated a number of maps across the game for improved quality, performance and tile diversity
Fixed some tile overlay issues
Fixed some lighting issues
Fixed an issue where grey stalkers were incorrectly in possession of night’s essence instead of earth’s essence
Fixed an issue with Orus’s Overgrowth spell, where it would remove the old Overgrowth effect before adding the new one, effectively resetting any overhealing each time. It can also no longer be used from the menu.
Carlisse’s Diamond Shell status now correctly reflects all physical damage types
Fixed a chest sprite issue
Fixed a stray reaction bubble during a cutscene
Fixed an issue where resisting Moon’s essence left her things behind in Witchdale
Fixed some tile passability issues
Fixed some incorrect portrait issues
Fixed a missing transfer event in the New Light tavern
Fixed an issue where some of the paths through Mubarek Monastery would result in the Moon/Elijah scene image not correctly displaying

New Release: v0.151!

Happy Halloween, everyone! This latest release continues to polish and improve and fix all manner of things (half of which have been plaguing me for well over a year), and I hope you find it cozy and stable and enjoyable in time for your holiday weekend.

I'm also excited to announce that we're working with a new, incredibly gifted artist (https://twitter.com/ShapeIsReal) to bring a number of scenes to life and to rework some of our old scenes that we feel no longer fit in well with the style of the game overall.

You'll be seeing evidence of that soon, I'm sure.

Best wishes and enjoy your spooky weekend,

Nym
