New Weekly Build: v0.41!

Hello! Got a fun little build uploading this week with some cool new cutscenes and some awesome scene art. There's also a new alpha build ready to send out to our alpha patrons.

A TON of time was dumped into a couple of very short scenes, but that's game dev life, haha. I'm starting to really love the characters of Leite and Gorps, and I hope you do as well.

New to the game? You can try the free public build here:

Without further ado:

Version 0.41 - 7/13/2018

Added Mar’Liore fireworks cutscene
Added rowboat cutscene

Version: Life, the Universe, and Everything

Good evening! I will keep this short and sweet, since the patch notes are LONG and SAVORY.
Managed to get a lot of work done this week, including many relatively major system updates and changes. The notes will speak for themselves, mostly, but I will say that, being still fresh, you can expect some more fine-tuning and balance adjustments to come from these systems.

Also, I fixed an embarrassingly large amount of bugs from version 0.41. Oops! I can't believe nobody either found them or said anything.

Other than that, hope you enjoy!

Version 0.42 - 7/20/2018

Added many new menu options, including vsync, window colors, & keyboard configuration
Added an in-combat status menu to provide more details about status afflictions
Added a description to every status effect
Advanced the Mar’Liore narrative
Improved on-map enemy AI
- Attacking an on-map enemy’s back will result in a preemptive strike
- Being back-attacked by a chasing enemy will result in a surprise attack
- After chasing for 5 seconds, enemies will stop and return to their original location
Weapon Skills and Essence Magic are now separated
- Moon Poison seals off Weapon Skills & can be healed using tentacles
- Silence seals off Essence Magic & can be healed using beaks
A new resource, “Trance,” is now earned in combat. Once this resource is full, Mercy enters a trance-like state, growing more powerful and consuming no MP.
- The effects of Trance differ slightly based on Mercy’s class
- Added “Trance” to the menu, giving Mercy 4 different preferences for how to earn Trance based on your preferred playstyle
Added a new optional boss-fight
Fixed a few tile issues in the cove residential building
Mercy can now rest in her room in the Esterholt manor as soon as the ship leaves
Colby, in the Esterholt market, now buys a few items at a special rate
Increased the value of bronze ore and pearls
Added a “Runes” option in the equip menu for ease of upgrading equipment
Reorganized the plugin stack to help reduce conflicts
Updated Core plugins with numerous compatibility improvements
Updated the save screen, players can now delete save files in-game
Janie in the Mar’Liore mill will buy swords and rapiers at a special price
Removed the “Formation” option from the main menu
Fixed an issue with Moon Frog AI
Fixed an issue where Elijah would roam around instead of steering the ship
Fixed a damage formula bug on the move “Overgrowth”
Fixed an issue where a soldier in Mar’Liore was incorrectly named Captain Forrest
Fixed a repeating dialogue if Mercy intimidated the hunters in Mar’Liore
Fixed the ship still playing storm sounds in Mar’Liore
Fixed several typos

New week, new build! Come and get it, fresh off the video game assembly line.

This week's release pretty much wraps up chapter 5, somewhat astonishingly. It'll be a couple more weeks before the chapter goes public, but our non-patron friends will have something to look forward to in the month of August. Non-patrons can try the public build at!

This was another tricky chapter, similar to Witchdale, because there were several branching options for how it resolved, and the quest journal only adds another level of complexity to the whole thing. But it's 99% wrapped up, which feels good.

Chapter 6 will take us to a couple of places more familiar, which will be cool. Don't want to spoil too much just yet, so just hang in there.

I'm also personally working on the art for another scene as we did a poll and I came out as the (surprise) winner but I have to sneak in time for my art here and there or I'll never get any work done on the rest of the game.

Anyway, that's enough rambling. I hope our weekly patrons like the build, and I hope everyone else is looking forward to it!

Version 0.43 - 7/27/2018

Fixed an issue where the octopus deepfolk scene could be repeated
Added Mar’Liore morning & departure
Added different cutscenes for the results of Mercy’s decisions in Mar’Liore
Updated Mar’Liore NPCs and ship crew to reflect time passage and choices made
Added a new SFW scene (?!)
Caught the quest journal back up
Fixed an issue where the quest journal and row features were missing from the main menu after 0.42
Moon is not going to Mar’Liore after all
Added the return of Carlisse (showdown coming soon!)
Revised some dialogue in Mar’Liore
