Patch 1.1.3 released

Hey there,

here's another patch that addresses a technical problem on older CPUs like the Core 2 Duo.

There's a change for Windows users in this update, that might break the game in some rare cases. We moved the EXE from a sub-directory to the game directory, so you can start the game from outside Steam. This wouldn't work previously, because the game couldn't find the data files when run from the sub-directory.
So if the game fails to launch, make sure the update has downloaded correctly. You may have to restart Steam so it will receive the latest configuration.
If the error persists, there are two things you should know:

  • If you previously copied or moved the game files to the main directory yourself, this could clash with the update. In this case, you will get an error message that says "Write error" when launching the game.
  • If you don't download the update, you can't run the game from Steam anymore, because it will expect the EXE to be at the new location. There will be an error message that says "Missing executable".

Let's hope for a smooth update - here goes nothing :)

Patch 1.1.2 released

Nothing exciting, just a quick hotfix: the game was crashing if Steam Cloud was disabled in the settings.

Cheers!

On Rusty Trails is a modern, illustrative platformer, set in a world constantly reacting to your change in identity. You are Elvis. Home owner, triangular metal person and lover of dryness. A sudden thunderstorm leaves your house dissolved into a pile of rubble. Only lightning-fast reactions will keep you from a looming rusty funeral. Don your Shifty Suit to incognito yourself and walk among suspicious hairy folk. Perilous puzzles and prejudiced platforms will bar your way in this deceptively deep gaming dish.

  • Still stepping on the floor? – Magnetic boots deliver a unique platform mechanic in multiple dimensions. Walk both walls and ceilings, and prepare for an adrenaline rush from treacherous puzzles.
  • A gloomy tale in finest comic art! – Feast your eyes on the trademark Black Pants art style in this beautiful and bleak platformer and its miniature world with even smaller inhabitants. Eyes! FEAST!
  • Spite and prejudice! – Stimulate your brains with a story about the loss of a low-rent flat, complicated misunderstandings and a looming war. And there is even forbidden romance.
