DQDX Patch #12 -- Version 2.1.2c

We just published three quick hotfixes in short succession over the last few days, the last one five minutes ago, and wanted to be sure people saw the changes. These mostly have to do with small regressions, null crash errors, and tweaks to steam controller & conventional controller support.

We also now have new builds up for Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Also we're on sale for 67% off during the Holiday sale!

Status:
Windows: YES
Windows GL: YES
Mac: YES
Linux: YES

And for those of you who are into the Steam Controller:

- We have official default configs for BOTH the Steam Controller *and* the Dualshock 4. Currently we're not able to properly label these in the "recommended configurations" section, but if you click the wrong one for your device you should get a warning. If everything's weirdly jumbled, use the other config!

- We have exposed more actions than those used in the default configuration, these are meant for advanced users to play with.

- We have provided a bunch of custom icons to use with Steam Controller configurations. We use some of these ourselves in the official configuration's radial menus.

-----------------

Changelog for 2.1.2c:
- Fixed overworld scrolling bug
- Fixed naming recruits with steam's soft keyboard overlay
- Fixed "configure steam controller" button doing nothing

Changelog for 2.1.2b:
- Fixed leftward drift on steam controller
- Fixed skills/equip button toggle in party menu for gamepad/steam controller
- Fixed wrong recruit screen button
- Fixed "infinite buy" bug on shop screen for gamepad/steam controller
- Fixed inconsistencies with mouse cursor

Changelog for 2.1.2a:
- Added a equip/skills toggle to party screen for gamepad & SC mode
- Added mouse-clickable rename/reset pts btns to party screen for SC mode
- Fixed soft keyboard input for SC (was broken)
- Added gamepad button to recruit/redesign screen for easy renaming
- Added cycle defenders back/forth to Left & Right grip on default SC config
- Fixed crash bug for windowed mode
- Fixed bug where fancy mouse would be forced even if you'd selected default

As usual, let us know if there's any issues so that we can get a patch out before the Steam servers go down again :P

DQDX Patch #11 -- Version 2.1.2

Status:
- Windows: YES
- Windows GL: YES
- Mac: YES
- Linux: YES

Today's patch fixes a lot of issues with Steam Controller support and also officially turns on cloud saves. I've tested the cloud saves, and they seem to work well without issue, but they are not turned on by default for safety's sake. Instead, the game will ask if you want to turn them on or not. In the event of a steam cloud conflict, the game will bring up a screen to resolve it, and you will have the option of backing up whichever file you do not choose.

We also fixed a lot of little bugs. There's always the possibility that we introduced new ones, so please let us know if you have any issues so that we can swiftly respond with a hotfix either today or tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience and support!

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!
