Empathy patch 1.0.3 - New game mode!

Hi everyone!

As we continue to read your valuable feedback on the game, it has become clear that some of you wish to experience the story of Empathy without any kind of in-between interactions. In order to address that, today's patch introduced a new game mode which allows players to opt out of the syncing puzzle mechanic to focus on story. The new game mode is called "Memento mode" and can be found in the settings menu.

We are also introducing a Field of View setting and ability to disable the persistent cross-hair in-game (it will only pop up when mousing over interactive objects).

We continue listening to your feedback, if you have any questions or issues, don't hesitate to contact us here on the forums.

We hope you enjoy the update and stay tuned for more.

Empathy: Path of Whispers Save System Update

Hi everyone! We've been following all the feedback, and it been great seeing that many enjoy the game. However, one of the things that became apparent is that our old automatic save system didn't hold up to the player's curiosity in the Empathy's open world.

We want to thank you for your patience with this, and today we're introducing an update that brings manual saves and save slots, allowing players to backtrack and load from any point of the game. The automatic saving is still there too, to keep player's progress up to date, but now writes to a new slot up to 15 at any time, overwriting the oldest ones. The only current limit to manual save slots is disk space. Please note that game always saves on selecting the exit option.

If you are continuing game from older save, "load/save game" will at first be unavailable until several auto or manual saves are created after continuing from old save.

We continue listening to your feedback, and you are welcome to contact us either here on the forums, or on contact@empathygame.org with any questions or issues!

  • New save slot system, supporting manual saving and loading, as well as multiple save slots.
  • Fixed multiple narrations and sounds that were incorrectly playing upon load game.
  • Wooden hatch down to the tunnel should properly display as open when ladder is possible to interact with.
  • Lower quality settings no longer affect screen resolution setting, resulting in better graphics on low settings.
  • Fixed "The fall" achievement tracking.
  • Partial controller support, menu still requires mouse, but game is playable with controller only.
  • Fixed Journal's database, so it correctly counts character entries, which earlier resulted in few incorrect character total dialogue count.
  • Got rid of a weird symbol in English subtitles.

About This Game

Blinking against the light, you step into a world that seems broken apart, almost dead… Yet there is a pulse, beating faintly in the back of your mind. What has happened in this place, where the people are gone and their memories echo in the silence? Where emotions appear as physical things, hanging in the air, just waiting for someone to reach out…

Empathy: Path of Whispers is an atmospheric and story-driven adventure game where you explore a seemingly abandoned world through the emotions and memories of the people who once inhabited it, trying to restore the world’s lost balance as you journey through its past. With a strong focus on storytelling and exploration, players will find themselves in a surreal world created from people’s emotions and memories, which can be manipulated and explored. Those lost memories are the key to rebuilding the crumbling world back to its former state, discovering its mysterious past and halting an impending apocalypse. Through its innovative narrative mechanics the game will challenge the player to explore and gain an understanding of the weird world they are traveling through.

Game Features:
  • Discover and explore other peoples’ memories in order to change the world around you, solve puzzles and access new areas.
  • Traverse a strange world and uncover what triggered the silent apocalypse.
  • Follow a narrative as it develops, interwoven with your exploration.
  • Experience the story through multiple first person perspectives and use your wits to piece the events together.
