Big optimization patch with stability improvements

Today we release a big optimization patch.

Expect a rather big improvement in frame rates and improved stability.
We have basically gone over every scene in the game and tried to increase the visual quality and also improve the performance.

We have also addressed a problem with where the character might fall through the ground at random places. This is due to a bug in the character controller in the Unity game engine. We have not been able to fix the bug, but instead created a workaround. If it happens, the character should just fall a little bit before we reset the ground collision and teleport the player back.

A lot of the combat VFX’es have been updated as well both to look better and to run faster.

Patch notes:

Code / Bugs:
  • New death volume to fix unity bug where character can fall through the floor at random locations.
  • Turned off occlusion on all cameras. (Should reduce crashing on some rigs.)
  • Fixed colliders to avoid getting stuck.
Optimization:
  • All scenes in the game has been optimized for improved frame rate.
  • Water reflections has been adjusted in some scenes (no longer reflecting things that can`t be seen).
  • Elements no longer cast real time shadows when those shadows can`t be seen.
  • Realtime shadow casters adjusted to avoid unnessecary performance drop
  • Most VFX has been edited for improved visual quality and optimisation
  • Removed DoF from all combat arenas.
  • Smoothed out camera nodes.
  • Burning Desert - many models rebuilt with better UVs and textures for higher quality and added LOD for performance
Improvements:
  • Earthlock artifact new animated texture
  • Zaberium Temple Combat arena retextured
  • New improved camera bloom
  • Plains Overworld is now more lush with vegetation
ESRB rating content adjustments:
  • One short sentence in Gnart’s journal has been removed*
  • One out of over 150 VFX changed to avoid “Animated Blood rating”

* Here is the sentence that was removed: "I wish I was home with a nice wheat beer."

About This Game



Don’t let the cute cartoonish art style fool you. This game is challenging. True fans of the JRPG genre will love it, casual players may want to look elsewhere. Invest the time, and EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic will reward you with a depth in gameplay that will test the most strategic of players.

Discover Your Hero Within


Embark on a journey to save the beautiful world of Umbra, a harsh planet that stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago. What started as a mission to rescue Amon’s uncle from the clutches of an ancient cult, soon spirals into an adventure that was centuries in the making. You must bring together this group of unlikely heroes to stop the ruinous past from repeating itself.


The World




Explore the magical world of Umbra and discover places lost in the past to uncover the secrets of the Earthlock Artifact.


The Heroes




Unite this band of heroes, all with their own journeys of self discovery and venture into the world to save the planet from the growing evil within. Mix up your strategy to beat your enemies using two different stances per character, and build your characters' battle bond to unleash powerful abilities or unique perks.


Your Own Secret Island




Take a break from adventure and escape to your own home island. Here you can harvest magical ingredients and craft helpful items and perks.


The Talent Table




EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic features a unique talent board system; a refreshing take on the classic skill tree. This board gives you complete control over your player's strengths and weaknesses. You can swap talents on and off the board, allowing you to finely tune each character to your desired playing style. The talent board also features “Perk Talents” which you can craft and collect in the world, giving you special combat skills and abilities.


For the best EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic experience, we recommend using a game controller.
