Update #37 - Audio Bully

Hi all,

We are up to version 1.2.6 of Turmoil. Update #37 - Audio Bully is dedicated to a number of fixes, most importantly the audio bug that repeated certain sound effects continuously. Another bigger fix is that players will now be able to play without an online connection again. After the Weekly Challenge update that was not possible any more.



Here is the full changelist:

Fixes
  • Audio - Added a reset sound button to the pause menu that will stop all sounds for a moment. Use this when sound gets stuck in a loop.
  • UI - Fixed several missing hover sounds, incorrectly centered text and positioning of a few sprites.
  • Crash - Game should no longer crash when incorrectly loading the weekly challenge. Check the Discussion here.
  • Campaign - William now correctly shows up on level 6 to tell you that the new level length is 12 months.

New
  • Loading times between screens are now shorter.
  • Added a confirmation window when returning to main menu from the town.
  • Land auction - The AI opponents now take less time to bid on land when playing on a slower computer.
  • Localization - Updated several Russian translations.
  • Localization - Reduced the scale of some texts that did not fit on specific translations.

About This Game

Turmoil offers players a visually charming, tongue-in-cheek take on the simulation genre inspired by the 19th century oil rush in North America. Get a taste of the rush and rivalry of the time as you earn your way to become a successful oil entrepreneur. As you make money digging up and selling oil, the town will grow along with you.

Lease land at the town auction and search for oil. Build a rig, create an efficient pipe network and bring up the oil to store it in silos. Sell the oil at the best times to maximize profits. Then buy essential upgrades in town to cope with rock, gas and ice. Acquire more town shares than your competitors in a bid to become the new mayor.

  • A campaign where you build your rags-to-riches oil baron career and beat your rivals.
  • Dozens of upgrades and new tools to improve your oil mining operations.
  • Meet the town’s characters in the saloon and make shady business deals.
  • Play single game mode to get one of literally millions of procedurally generated levels and earn as much as you can in one year.
  • Steam Achievements, Badges, Trading Cards and Cloud Saving.
  • Lease land at the town auction and search for oil using a dowser, mole or scanner.
  • Maximize your profits by using natural gas to boost the oil price.
  • Outbid your competitors at the stock auction.
