Poi is part of the official games list for SGDQ 2017! It will be speedrun by 097Aceofspades on the 4th of July at 3:35 AM PST along with a few other folks providing commentary: Konasumi, Mildew, Shockwve, Amyrlinn and Keverage. Check out the full schedule here.

We're also got a new Steam build this week with lots of various improvements. It's been a while, so let's dive right in.

User Feedback and Bug Fixes
  • Added the medallion level select screen to the Forest and Snow Worlds in the Hub
  • Disabled several auto-camera view zones to give players more control over the camera
  • Added a "Game Saved" indicator icon to the HUD
  • Faster startup load time
  • Disabled depth of field while in telescope/photo camera mode
  • Updated controller icons and buttons
  • Updated god rays visual effect
  • Modified the way steering the Airship works to eliminate rare stuck bug
  • Increased resolution quality of various UI elements
  • Moleiseum intro doesn't play repeatedly
  • DualShock4 (PS4) controller lightbar support added (experimental; driver/OS dependent)
  • Fixed a bug with the girl's ledge grab hands offset
  • Fixed a rendering bug in New Game+ mode when the player dies
  • Fixed a bug when beating New Game+ that messaged New Game+ was unlocked again incorrectly
  • Fixed a bug with hats not resetting when changing save profiles
  • Fixed a Bucket Head in Sinking Sands that would occasionally get stuck under the ground
  • Fixed a bug where the Explorer Book key was using the Backspace icon instead of the Tab icon
  • Updated grass model
  • Fixed an occasional freeze bug when restarting mini games
  • Added the Unity logo to the credits page

Improved Performance
We've also done a substantial performance pass for this build. Most of the improvements apply regardless of the selected quality, but some will be more noticeable when selecting low, medium, or high from the options menu.

Be sure to give us your feedback on the fourms, and as always thanks for your continued support! <3

July 21st (Minor Build Update)
  • Fixed a rare bug that would cause unresponsive player movement upon death.
  • UI tooltips that appear above the player's head are no longer blurry due to the depth of field effect.

Bug Patch #2

Hey all,

This week we've got another small Friday update (build #1639667) with a few changes.

Bug Fixes and Improvements
  • Added an option to toggle VSync from the options menu (this might help the performance/stuttering issues some of you have still been reporting).
  • Fixed a bug with mouse acceleration introduced from Bug Patch #1
  • Fixed a bug when using Alt+Enter (Cmd+F on Mac) to enter full screen mode where the UI/HUD would disappear.
  • Updated our Steamworks SDK (this should be a transparent change, but if you see any issues with achievements or leaderboards, let us know).

Set Target Frame Rate
We've also added an in-game console command to help those with performance issues. You can set the target frame rate (from 30-120). For example, if your machine is less powerful it might be a better experience to clamp the frame rate to 30.
  1. Open Poi and hit the tilde (~) key (left of the 1 key).
  2. Type: "targetfps [num]" (no quotes and replace [num] with the desired fps). For example: targetfps 30
  3. Hit (~) again to close the console.

You can also use the "fps" console command to display the frame rate in the lower left corner of the screen to verify.

We're continuing to work on bugs, performance and other things so please keep the feedback coming.

Happy weekend!

-The PolyKid Team
