Update 1.1: Thorny Thistles

31 юли

Yet another update to make Secrets of Raetikon better!

The most important fix has to do with the newest Intel HD 4000 drivers which were not compatible with our game. The game is playable on HD 4000 cards now, but the editor is still unstable. Please follow this post for further information: http://steamcommunity.com/app/246680/discussions/0/34093781613697329/

We’ve also rebalanced and fixed dozens of bugs to make the game fairer and more welcoming to new players. The Deserter and Thorny Thistle achievements work now.

Over the last months we’ve also made the following changes that have not been announced yet:

  • You can’t get stuck in the wind tunnel anymore.
  • The stag behaves better now, e.g. it flees from buzzards
  • There were cases where progress did not save correctly. Not anymore!
  • You could get stuck in a stature before we fixed that.
  • Rabbits can walk by trees properly
  • Lynx attack magpies
  • Fishes now can be carried between levels
  • Fishes now swim with their bellies upward when dead
  • Tuned health and damage of all animals
  • Much less crashes and better responsiveness on slow machines

This is the best version of Secrets of Raetikon ever. Have fun with it!

Update 1.03: Nerfing it all

11 юни

In the newest update we've made the game much much fairer. Magpies are not that unnerving anymore and the lynx pauses for a second after attacking, opening a window of opportunity to escape. The editor has received a ton of tutorials to ease you into developing your own games with Ginkgo and the game can be played past the ending credits.

This is the best version of Secrets of Raetikon. Enjoy!

Here are all the tweaks:
+ Balanced magpie speed.
+ Removed some magpies.
+ Lynx pauses his attack longer after biting.
+ Balanced health.
+ Game can be continued after credits ended.
+ Fixed bug where shard vanished when dropped into cage door without opening it.
+ Fixed sliver in deep getting pushed into solid ground.
+ Shard can’t be dropped while level switch starts fading to black -> prevent confusing situation where shard is lying near level borders and hard to find.
+ Fixed troubles with multiple connected controllers.
+ Added lots of tutorials.

Ruthless bird versus bird action. Wild animals and the artefacts of a mysterious ancient culture. A game full of challenge and discovery – unlike anything you've played before.

Secrets of Raetikon


You find yourself alone in the mountains of the Alps. Discover strange contraptions, wild animals and the mysteries of an ancient culture. Uncover the Secrets of Rætikon in an atmospheric, open-world 2D game in which you fly like a bird and explore an uncharted world.

Secrets of Rætikon is an action-focussed exploration game with an open world. Fly through the savage mountains of the Alps and collect parts of ancient machines. The world is rich in interactivity. Trees, rocks, plants and animals – everything is physics based and can be grabbed and dragged around.

Hostile animals protect their habitats and interact with you as well as each other. Use this ecosystem to your advantage: drag a bird of prey to another predator and they attack each other; grab a robin and feed it to a buzzard – it will attack the poor bird instead of you; defend yourself by wielding spiked plants or by pushing foes into thornbushes.

Steam Workshop integration


Secrets of Rætikon sports a full-featured level editor. You can edit every level that comes with the game or create all new levels. Levels can be shared over Steam Workshop. There is a physics sandbox that allows you to build toys or even new games. This is the same editor we use to build the game itself. It will be continuously developed for as long as we work on the game.

Secrets Of Rætikon is a beautifully rendered game, it's all very colorful. It's hard to explain it gameplay wise. But you're a bird and you have to find artifacts that are scattered all over the world. You might say that it's a Metroidvania game but it's not. You won't gain any skills or abilities and all places are freely accessible. The goal is mainly to survive, while finding these artifacts. There are several types of 'enemies' and not all of them will attack you on the spot. Some of them will try to grab you or your artifact and others will just leave you alone because they're lower on the food chain. You can go faster by flapping your wings and you can even dive to increase your speed. The controls are unusual but work very good.

There's no map system in the game so you have to find everything by scouting the areas carefully. This can be hard, but fortunately the game is only a few hours (3-4) long so the world isn't that big.

I really enjoyed playing the game, but one thing that bothered me was the fact that you can't continue the game once you finish it. So make sure you do everything before dropping that last artifact, unless you want to play through it again, of course.

There's always room for improvement and Secrets Of Rætikon is no different. But despite its shortcomings I had a great time playing in this magical and very stylish world.

Secrets of Rætikon is one of the few games where you play as an 'realistic' animal in a 2d metroidvania like world. After the game started I was smoothly flying around and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere in a world with a nice Сubism art style. The game explained simply is; find collectables to get other collectables to finish the game. Which sounds stupid but while you do this you will encounter many obstacles and enemies. Also there are other things to explore which can add to the story of Rætikon. Sometimes you really have to think about your movement so you can get to that certain area. I liked that in this game I sometimes felt sad because I had to kill other animals or plants to get health. I have to say that I didn't enjoy Rætikon to it's fullest because on my laptop I played some parts without sounds. Which really reduces the feeling of being in nature. I have to say I didn't really like the ending. But I think that may had something to do with the studio having to rush that part. Because this game didn't and still doesn't get that much attention. What I respect the dev's for: They kept on going to finish the game, because they know that these kind of games are missing in this industry. The only positive side of the game not being popular is that you really have to find everything out by yourself.

Workshop community:
Dead.
No support at all.
I will have a look at it.

Short:
A nice relaxing game where you explore around flying as a bird.

I am quite addicted to the game. This is the kind of game with such a beautiful, immersive world that you find yourself thinking about it even after you’ve stopped playing. I remember laying in bed trying to fall asleep, thinking about where the last shard could be because I had seemed to overlook one somewhere in my exploration. The skills you get as a bird are easy enough to master and the true challenge lies in interacting with the environment and wildlife. The challenge is just hard enough to keep you grasping and trying again when you fail, but not so hard that you get discouraged. This is a fine line to walk and Secrets of Raetikon walks it well.

Here's a more long-winded version of my review: http://orttimusprimetime.com/game-review/secrets-of-raetikon-review/

Secrets of Rætikon is as gorgeous and ethereal as it is tedious and poorly designed.

It’s a game about exploration and discovery, hampered by convoluted level designs and the inexcusable absence of any sort of map. It’s a game of peaceful puzzle solving and nonlinear exploration disrupted by annoyingly persistent enemies, and no means of attack to ward them off. More than anything though it’s a game of false allegations of an overarching mystery, that in the end is nothing more than a horrendously incomprehensible and random moment, preceded by an unnecessarily grotesque event that quite frankly made me sick.

At it’s core, Rætikon is constructed like a large fetch quest collectathon, requiring you to explore levels in order to collect scattered shards which can then be used to power up ancient machinery. These machines exist both in opening new pathways for you, and in presenting you with larger shards which must then be brought back to a sort of hub and deposited into the sockets of yet another large machine.

Though it had the potential to be an enjoyably open experience, allowing you to freely traverse the world as you hunt for these shards and machines, Rætikon idiotically forces you to spend an aggravating amount of time back tracking through levels in order to return to the hub. This could have been avoided with a better connected world, but with only two paths into the hub, you’re required to haul your luggage through numerous screens over and over again. This is made even more frustrating do to the inevitable games of keep away you get into with other animals, which can sometimes make the simple act of getting from one side of the screen to the other almost painful in how aggressive the other creatures are.

This all adds up to make Secrets of Rætikon an absolute chore to get through. It’s a gorgeous game, with some incredible origami-like artwork, a fantastically ambient soundtrack and great sense of atmosphere, but it’s all brought down by some horrible design decisions that sour the entire experience. When you finally get to the end it only makes matters worse, with a disturbing and baffling turn of events that sells home the point that the designers seemed to have little idea where they were going with their game, nor a clue how to get there.

Upon wings of gold,
Upon air so cold,
Through the sky so blue,
I graciously flew

To foxes I spoke,
Great machines I woke,
Ancient runes I read,
From great predators I fled,

A story unearthed,
In languages lost and cursed,
And yet my adventures have just begun,
Studying the Secrets of Rætikon
