Beta News

Since the Beta was released on Dec 1 2018, most of the Beta testers indicated that the game was too complicated and/or that the user interface was not intuitive.

In response to that, I've been redesigning the UI to make it more streamlined.  But, more importantly, I've also been adding a complete guided tutorial for the game that will introduce players to all the key components of the game.  Ideally, this tutorial plus the on-demand Help system will be enough to get players fully immersed into the game.

To help with the Tutorial, the game's storyline has been greatly expanded.  This new storyline will help to give the players an understanding of the game world they're interacting with.

Upcoming Release

Beta v0.4.28 Highlights:

  • to be determined

  • Added new quest content

  • Added new "quest failure" rewards (or penalties depending on your point of view)

  • More changes to how quests operate in the background, including allowing for chained background adventures.

  • Update to character lists on map page.  Long NPC character list was covering the buttons in the bottom-right corner.

  • Fix to sporadic text turning White on Book output.

Beta v0.4.18 Highlights: 

  • Fixed issue with map going 'grey' under certain conditions.

  • Improved how game data is handled during startup.

Beta v0.4.16 Highlights: 

  • Fixing the face-palm moment of releasing a broken build in v0.4.14.  Sigh.

  • Fixed the issue with auto-updates of the game when new versions are released.  Sigh again.

  • Minor improvements to how game data updates are checked for.

Beta v0.4.14 Highlights: 

  • There are a few small visual updates. 

    • The biggest are the reorganization of the Main Menu and moving the "Tutorial Mode" feature into options.

    • The Release Notes feature on the main menu has been changed to point to this page on the website, removing the need to keep the release notes synchronized in multiple locations.

  • Data Update/Integration feature​.  In the previous versions, any time new content was added to the database, players would need to start a new game to gain access to it.  This new change will see game content updates immediately installed and integrated into existing games.

Beta v0.4.12 Highlights: 

  • Not much to see here.  Changes were made to support the Game Master Tools to facilitate collaboration with the game's writers.

Beta v0.4.10 Highlights: 

  • The major change to this release is an auto-update feature.  The game will now look for updates when it's launched and prompt the player to install a new version if one exists.

  • Updates were made to the Game Master Tools to create nested adventure choices.  This allows the writers to create deeper story content for adventures.  It's also set up to allow players to exit from a nested adventure, perform some out-of-adventure actions, and then return to the adventure to continue the story.

  • Added game registration to the main menu.

Beta v0.4.4 Highlights: 

  • New feature on the Main Menu to let you submit suggestions and bug reports from within the game.  When you submit the report, the game will email me your game data, which will really help me identify where/how the bug is happening.  If you encounter a bug, please send me a report before ending your turn.  When you end the turn it significantly updates the data, which may mask the bug, making it impossible to trace.

  • New Health (red) and Morale (purple) globes to the character lists on the map page.  I'm not entirely happy with them, but they seem to work well.  There was also a request to add "movement remaining info", but I haven't figured out how I'm going to do that yet.  My current plan is to show a status box at the bottom of the screen that will provide mouse-over information on your characters, the party icon and the various map information (terrain, resources, etc.)  I think it will work okay, but I'm concerned it will be intrusive if the player doesn't want the info.  So, I'll also need to add a show/hide feature for it to put it away when you don't want to see it.

  • New behind the scene features that will facilitate more story options, including nested conversation chains - rather than having to perform multiple adventures to have a longer conversation.  This won't be fully available for a few weeks, but it's coming very soon.
