DQDX Patch #15 -- Version 2.1.7

Hey everyone!

Defender's Quest version 2.1.7 has just been released.

Status:
Windows: YES
Mac: NOT YET
Linux: NOT YET

This version includes a lot of bugfixes and stability changes, as well as complete translations for Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. Previously, we had only translated the user interface and gameplay text; now all the story, cutscene, and journal text should be fully translated into both languages.

Since the translations are still new, there is always the possibility that I, the programmer, have introduced a few bugs during the integration, or have failed to provide the translator with enough context for certain scenes. If you are fluent in both Chinese and English and find any errors, please do not hesitate to point them out to me, and I will try to fix them as quickly as I can.

The majority of our other changes concern general stability, fixing random rare crashes, and improving gamepad support. We have also identified a few parts of the code that were rather slow, and optimized them. Hopefully that will mean some improved performance for those who had been experiencing slowdown on big, long, battles.

Changelog for version 2.1.7:
- Full Chinese translation (simplified)

About This Game

Defender's Quest is a Tower-Defense/RPG Hybrid (Think Final Fantasy Tactics meets Tower Defense). It focuses on three things: tactical depth, customization, and story. That means no random encounters, no spikey-haired emo kids, no forced time sinks, and no tedious, repetitive battles.

The battle system builds off of tower defense, with individual characters taking the place of towers. Each character levels-up, learns skills, and equips gear individually, allowing the player to customize their battle experience and strategy. The overall game structure is similar to "tactical" RPG's, but with a real-time battle system. Game speed is adjustable, and commands can even be issued while the game is paused.

It also features an engaging, character-driven story written by an actual English major! The story strives to be fast-paced, snappy, and always relevant to gameplay with minimal exposition. Finally, it's got options and accessibility settings out the wazoo, so that you can have the best possible experience!
