Patch Notes: 1.10.0



Hi everyone!! We just released a new big patch containing bug-fixes and tweaks. Hope you will enjoy what we’ve fixed, added and changed.

Bugfixes:
  • Completing a research will now give the correct bonus items.
  • Options and settings will be the same on each difficulty mode.
  • When you beat a chapter, launch screen now remembers your last difficulty mode pick.
  • Prevented Protection Sonar from staying around after use.
  • Prevented Defense Star and Eric's Phase Jumper to spawn before researching them.



Features, changes and balancing:
  • A new UI in inventory that shortly describes the various stats and terms.
  • Reduced the max speed of traveling ice blocks and stones.
  • Greatly reduced the damage taken from fast moving stones and ice blocks on easy and normal difficulty mode.
  • Evil travellers now have a reduced max speed and does slightly less damage in chapter 3.
  • You can now toggle between each difficulty mode on the travel stats screen. Before you only could see stats from the normal difficulty mode.
  • Chapter 1’s signal locations are now reduced to 8 from 9.
  • The first 6 items you find when playing on normal and easy difficulty mode will now be usable by the ship you're currently flying, instead of having a random ship requirement.
  • Your first 3 items you find when playing on expert difficulty mode will now be usable by the ship you're currently flying, instead of having a random ship requirement. As you lose your items on expert difficulty mode, this will be reset on each death.
  • Expert mode now requires 60% less experience for level up.
  • You can now toggle between each difficulty mode on research screen if you visit it from the start menu.
  • Current difficulty mode other than normal is now displayed on start screen below the planet.
  • Added a link to the start page leading you to our upcoming game Lunar Soil's site.




Thank you for playing RymdResa!! And big thank you for reporting issues and bugs in the forums, helping us making RymdResa better! ❤

“Space, as a general rule, is a quiet place. And space travel is by all accounts a very lonely profession. Few games capture that sense of desolation. RymdResa, however, does.”
Kotaku

“Rymdresa may be the most relaxed, contemplative roguelike we've ever played.”
Polygon

About This Game

A roguelike space odyssey in a procedurally generated world

When home is no more...

Resources are sparse. The universe is infinite and unknown. The universe is lonely, open and unforgiving.

You're drifting, in a big, empty and silent space. Searching for a new home. You know a few coordinates to some random locations; but this is the only information you got.



RymdResa is a challenging and evolving space adventure, based on randomness, with RPG elements. Abstract story elements and art are expressed throughout a lonesome and calm journey in space.

Travel through a mysterious cosmos, deep and beyond. Discover the solitude of space! Customize your ship, explore and survive in the retro stylized universe of RymdResa.

★ Solitude Of Space
★ Procedural World

Solitude of space
The universe is lonely, open and unforgiving, but that doesn't mean it isn't peaceful. We have tried to create a place for relaxation and beauty.

Procedural World
The world is infinite and different every time you play, with over 300 different objects to discover and explore; like planets, stars and spaceships.

Randomized Loot
There is a large amount of different item types you can find to enhance your ship. These are randomized. Try to get legendary items!



Ship Customization
There are 8 ships in RymdResa. Every ship has in total 8 item slots, whereof 2 are unlockable. You can find different styles, auras, engines and other improvements.

Pilot Level
Level up to become a master pilot! Choose orientation, focus on exploring, scouring, survival or technology.

Upgrades
Discover a set of several different upgrades, like researches and different worlds enhancements; why not for example unlock the shield as an item type or see moons in space?



3 Chapters
RymdResa is an evolving space adventure. Each chapter has unique gameplay and a unique narrative. Chapter 3 is set in a new universe!

Beautiful Art
Poetry, peace and art. Explore and enjoy a big set of visuals, crafted with RymdResa's art style; pixelart mixed with a posterized style combined with a strict color pallet.

Original Soundtrack
Every ship has a custom soundtrack enhancing the world around it. Two musicians: Tom Croke and Pat Jacobs created the soundtrack with their vision of the game.



Voiced Story
A poetic voice log from the pilot describing a great loss, thoughts and feelings. Abstract fragments discussing the past, present and future.

Nonviolent
We didn't want to create yet another space-shooter, with laser-beams and exploding aliens. In RymdResa the gameplay is peaceful, passive and relaxing.
