Update Regarding 1.3 Release Candidates

November 15th, 2012 by Jetrel

We’ve updated our most recent post with new mac and windows builds that fix a major bug that cropped up. If you started playing on challenging, the bug would end up changing the difficulty back down to casual, when you died and respawned. Since having another difficulty level is a cornerstone of this release, if you’d already downloaded the previous one and feel like challenging doesn’t change anything, you probably want to download again.

This is especially embarrassing to us since we’ve put so much time and effort into having another difficulty level. It seems that the reason we never found it is that almost every time we tested the higher difficulty, we used a special commandline option to jump-start the game on a level later into the game, with higher difficulty (allowing us to test the game in segments). Because this option internally works in slightly different way than our difficulty-selector screen, it prevented the “revert to casual” bug from happening to us. There are several lessons to be learned about software QA here. 😐

Thanks for sticking with us, sorry if that bug means you needed to download again.

    Forst of all, thanks for providing and improving this game for us!

    I haven’t played in a while and I’ve yet to get used to switching between powers and using the one I intend to. I wonder whether a seperate keys solution would be easier or even harder to manage.

    The game appears not to replace the english strings with localised once whenever they include any formating, at least in the german version. Also the savegames screen remains largely untranslated (except for the button).

    Keep up the great work, thanks again!
