A few more fixes!

FEATURES:
* Added an option to disable mouse control in the settings. If you want to use your mouse for its buttons but move with your keyboard.
* Slow camera movement is now also disabled when you disable screenshakes in the Settings. Even if the text doesn't yet say so.

IMPROVEMENTS:
* Added in forgiving mode the possibility to buy one item of each type with a level 1 in the Market. These level 1 items are always free and should avoid a situation where you have no money left to repair a weapon or an energy cell and no way to earn any more money.
* Saves are now automatically triggered each time you craft an item from a blueprint or if the application loses focus.

BUGS:
* Fixed a bug causing one part of the Hunter to become invulnerable

BALANCE:
* Uniques should drop significantly more on most Bosses.
* Decreased the duration between the arrival of the two Guardians from 30 to 25s for dual Guardians fights.

About This Game

Imagine a Diablo-like game with the mouse clicking part replaced by an horizontal shoot'em'up core gameplay.




That's what is Drifting Lands in essence: first and foremost an action-RPG (Hack'n'Slash or however you may call this). Then and only then a different kind of shoot'em'up, accessible to a wider audience than usual.

Drifting Lands main characteristics are:

  • randomy generated missions for replayability
  • 100 levels of difficulty to climb with your skill or your ability to optimize your gear and powers
  • 70 active and passive powers with various effects: dash, area of effect attacks, time control, etc.
  • a complex item generation system with a lot of stat modifiers to optimize, unique items with "game changer" powers
  • 3 classes of ships for different profiles of players
  • Not your usual bland heroic fantasy universe

Drifting Lands is designed to meet both shmup and hack & slash enthusiasts’ expectations.

With the choice of your class, you’ll have the opportunity to take control of different ships, best suited to your favorite gameplay style.

You’re a super player of bullet hells and don’t mind dying on the first few impacts ?

You’ll find a perfect class for you with high-damages / low-resistances interceptors. You’ll benefit from a smart customization of your gear, but your performances on the field will be mainly based on your skill.

You enjoy the progressive design of a powerfull build through skills and inventory optimization ?

Your class will offer more resistant ships, able to put up with a lot more impacts. But if you want to shine, you’ll have to be smart in the selection of your special powers and how you create synergies with your equipment!
