August bugfixing update

Today we are publishing an small update, in fact, there are only two items in it:

  • Fix: Father chapter portal problem
  • Fix: Clear Night in Uyuni ball not showing
I want to apologize for the delay fixing these two, it was hard to find what was happening, especially in the second one because it was related to a new feature of Unreal Engine we were not aware of.

Every time you post in the forums a bug we start the bugfixing process. It’s starts by reporting it to Carlos and implies prioritizing them. For example, game stoppers are always at the top, because it’s preventing people from ending the game.

Then it comes the tricky part. We need to reproduce a bug to be able to fix it. It could seem easy because it’s failing for you, and it’s clear there is an error, but the variables that may cause an error are overwhelming. Sometimes it’s a problem with the graphics adapter, the operating system or how the engine is made, and even it’s possible that it’s a problem with a single model of graphics card and driver version.

Once a bug is reproducible, it’s possible to start fixing it because you can change something, test how it affects the game and find what’s causing the error. Ironically, it’s usual to spend less time fixing the problem than finding how to reproduce it.

Thanks for reading

About This Game

Change the entire environment!

Wrapped in a mind-bending tale, the gameplay of “MIND” focuses on changing the very weather in order to solve puzzles: the player will cycle between day and night, modify the levels of fog and rain and even travel in time between seasons, changing the environment to advance the gameplay-driven story —indeed, the mechanics are directly related to who the protagonist is, what has happened to him and everything he is doing: a man trapped in his own mind, he must use all the tools at his disposition to escape to reality. Accompanied by the snarky yet heartfelt narration of this comatose patient, the player will guide him through fantastical forests, dark caverns and deceptive worlds of water and ice that directly relate to his emotional state at each point in his journey.
