v0.27.0 Patron Release

Evening all, heads up that v0.27.0 is now up for patrons! We've got a nice chunk of art content in this one, and some good code progress, but sadly there was a potentially mean bug that got into v0.26.1. If you opened the options screen in v0.26.1, there's a good chance your gender settings got flipped back to the default values. There is a workaround, which I've described in the Patreon post, as well as a bit more details on the good stuff. Check it out!

v0.27.0 Change Log
Game Functions:
  • Monthly Cheat Code Updated
Scene Content:
  • None
Art Content:
  • Harian Director/Female Overseer added to Scenes and Gallery (6 variants)
  • Lencist Director/Male Overseer added to Scenes and Gallery (6 variants)
Codex Entries:
  • Setting - Overseers
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed issue in v0.26.1 where opening the options screen would reset gender preferences and settings. Note that this would occur even if you did not enter the cheat code to bring up those toggles.
  • Fixed issue where the art preferences panel would not close unless you fully closed the Options screen.
  • Fixed several typos in the introduction tour sequence.
Known Issues:
  • TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
  • WebGL Issues: Be warned that save game data in WebGL mode is less permanent than PC standalone. May also be more prone to memory and other issues.​

v0.26.1 Change Log

  • None
Codex Entries:
  • None

  • Main dialogue screen scrollbar sensitivity increased
Known Issues:
  • TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
