Tanzia is going to be featured at the PC Gamer Weekender Indie Showcase (desk J26)!

Greetings, humans of London! (Or any human that’s planning on going to London this weekend for the #PCGW17),

After a crazy couple of weeks of ups and downs, rushed programming, emailing, begging, not sleeping, crying and laughing (mostly crying), we can finally say for sure that Tanzia is going to be at the PC Gamer Weekender Indie Showcase for you to play!

Sadly, we, the team behind the game, won’t be able to make it to the venue, but thanks to Berenger Dupre, Tomáš Duda, Joachim Sammer, Carlos Leituga, Angi Suarez, Martin Eriksson & James Ohalloran who selflessly offered to help us set up and maintain desk J26, Tanzia will be there for you to enjoy!

We also found the lovely Marjana, who’s going to be there showing the game for us! She’ll have some business cards with Tanzia Steam beta keys, so if you see her, ask for one! (But don’t be mad if she runs out of them, we only managed to make a few!)

The build at the event will be different from the one we have on Steam: it will be the latest version, with the new tutorial in place and some super nice details like free floating speech balloons! So if you already played the current Steam beta or if you watched all the latest YouTuber videos, there’s something new for you too!

So if you’re going to PCGW17, please come to the Indie Showcase and check out Tanzia! And don’t miss out on the other awesome games that will be there! Hacktag, The Great Whale Road, American Truck Simulator, Ruin and Miner Meltdown! Without them Tanzia wouldn’t be at the show, so we are eternally grateful to every one of those teams!
If you still haven’t bought your tickets, use the code TANZIA at checkout to get a 20% discount.

Gamepad Update! (And more, plenty more!)

Hey everyone! You wouldn’t believe how hard we worked on this update, we’re super happy to finally show it to you!

Here’s what’s new:

Gamepad Controls
Finally! After weeks (months?) of tweaking and testing and swearing and breaking and fixing (and crying), we present you, the gamepad update!

So now you can choose between the regular MMO-Style controls we all love, a FPS-style variant (where the mouse moves the camera automatically, without keeping the right button pressed).
And gamepad! Yes! You’ll be able to modify it as you please, invert it, change all the key bindings, you can even bind your spells to the digital pad and have them right at your fingertips!

By default we have two presets A and B, A was created by our lead designer Jason, and B was created by a normal person (me, Matias), so you might want to switch to B to have a better experience ; )

Think of the gamepad controls as in Beta (a Beta inside another Beta? how meta!) so things might break, please send us your feedback and comments so we can keep improving it.

Tabs in the Equipment Menu

After lots of requests, we added tabs to the equipment menu. That used to be a big mess and people needed to navigate pages and pages to find what they were looking for, but now everything is tidy and organized!

Auto Targeting
If you were one of the players who hated the “you don’t have a target” pop-up text, you’re in luck! Now if you aggro an enemy, the game will target it automatically, and if that enemy dies, and there’s another aggroed enemy around, the game will target that one.
So unless you start picking up loot or talk to an NPC, then you’ll always have a target and the fight will never stop! You’re going to love it! (I know I do!).

Z-targeting / Enemy lock
Mastering kiting is super important in Tanzia (keeping an enemy chasing you while also keeping it at a range where it cannot attack you), you really need it if you plan on surviving the Emuri Village or any of the later areas. It’s super hard to kite properly using a gamepad, so we added a way to lock the camera to your target, so you can run around it and not destroy your fingers in the process. If you played Zelda64, you’ll feel right at home.

Melee changes

Before, melee was treated like a spell, so you activated it, and waited for it to cool down to attack again. Now it works independently, you can attack at any time even if you don’t have a target. Using the gamepad you have a dedicated button for the attack, and best of all, now you can do a little 3-hit combo, it’s fun!

We killed the pre-launcher
All the options that you used to find on the pre-launcher, now you’ll find on the settings menu.
So now Tanzia is 100% compatible with Steam’s Big Picture Mode. You can sit back, relax, and play on your couch : D

That’s it for the big changes, now the full changelog for build #2607:

-fix bug where Tika's feathers don't work if you haven't done the Madda quest yet.
-fixed several missing off-quest dialogs to various NPCs.

-fix bug where you can't bind mouse buttons to actions.

-added some helpful merchant chatter.
-added some villager chatter.
-instead of dropping Erudi's bags from treasure chests and stuff, use an actual 3D bag model.

-add Mowg vision.
