Hi everyone,

Hope you're all enjoying Cloudbuilt… the leader boards are certainly buzzing with people trying to reach the top! We've got a new update today, adding a little treat for everyone – achievements, finally! – as well as some important fixes. Don't worry, controller support is coming very soon, we just want to make sure it's super-tight before we go live with it.

Here are the latest additions and fixes in full:

• Achievements! Rewards for tasks that makes sense based on your progress (earning ranks, collecting lives and unlocking logs are backwards compatible) and will unlock if you've already earned them.
• Resets achievements for those who accidently got them before this patch.
• Fixed: Issue with re-earning extra lives after resetting the game for ranks beaten previously.
• Fixed: Issue with rank values not loading correctly for pathfinder mode on Acceptance.
• Hotkeys for Reset Checkpoint and Reset Level in the pause menu now correctly display the currently bound key on the button text.
• Tweaked checkpoint placement on 'A Message' and 'No Excuse' to make the checkpoint balance better for the early levels.

• Fixed: Changed maximum increment values for certain stats which were interfering with backwards compatible earning of achievements.
• Fixed: Issue that could give too many lives per rank earned when recounting the amount extra lives at startup.

As always, please check the integrity of your local files to ensure you've got the newest build before playing. Enjoy!

If Mirrors Edge and Sonic decided that they wanted to have a baby but then megaman x was upset cause he always wanted to have a baby with mirrors edge so he inserted nano machines to make the baby a bit more like him this game is what you would end up with!

Here is my full review of Cloudbuilt. It is certainly an absolutely outstanding game and may very well be one of my personal GOTY's. My full thoughts can be found in the video above, but I would have no hesitation in recommending this game to anyone!

"Cloudbuilt is a third person platformer which revolves around speed running, in which you have to navigate each level in the quickest time possible, but what makes it intriguing is the fact that there is multiple routes for each level giving you different options on how to complete it."

Playing the beta of this solid game. One of the sharpest and smartest games I've played in years.

While this is Coilworks first game, Cloudbuilt is a tough but extremely fun game to play, offering beautiful graphics, and an epic soundtrack. This is by far Indie Game of the year so far! It’s a must buy, and would be extremely good fun to watch how Speed Runners tackle the challenge. We would love to see Cloudbuilt on consoles at a later date (which hasn’t been fully ruled out yet).
