Patch r1589_v1.07 Has Been Released

Hi all,

Time for the next exciting update to TY!
In this episode...

NEW FEATURES
  • ART: Additional beautification to Lyre, Lyre Pants on Fire; if the "Props" setting in "Screen" is set to "High" (note - this is for high-spec PCs).


  • CAMERA: Back-ported the 1st Person Camera starting direction from TY2. You can now select between "TY's Body" (which will make the camera enter 1st person, facing the direction TY's head is looking at - so it will auto-target NPCs and the like) and "Camera" (which will make the camera enter 1st person, facing where the 3rd person camera was pointing at, irrespective of anything else). The setting will default to "Camera"; and can be modified via the Options UI.

BUG FIXES
  • AUDIO: If the audio device fails to create at launch, try the next available audio device. Also, additional logging for if <all> audio devices fail to create.
  • GRAPHICS: Removed the glow around the seahorses from the shadows.

UP NEXT
We'll be working on additional beautification for more levels, and keeping an eye on any bugs that people bring to our attention.

Any issues, please let us know!

Cheers
Linds

TY2 is Coming to Steam

Hi all,

So... after a few months of "hints" and oblique comments, it's official.
TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue is coming to Steam!



And - just in case you want to buy the super-awesome poster for your wall - we've set up a sweet store! where you can buy it and other TY apparel (with more coming soon)!

We do not have a date for the Early Access release right now, but what we can say is:

  • We will have a date for you shortly :)
  • Our current plan is to progress with the release in the same fashion as we did for TY1, with an Early Access release, followed by updates to fix issues, polling the users for ideas for how to improve the game (and for achievements ideas and the like) and implementing those, improving the art.
  • We are endeavouring to ensure that the very first build of the game in Early Access will be 100% completable (it just might have a few crashes and issues along the way), the same as TY1 was.
  • We aim to have some kind of discount for the launch week in to Early Access, if you own TY1 on Steam

While we're focussing on getting things <working>, we've already made a few changes to the game that people should enjoy (SPOILERS!):
  • Mud and Sand no longer slow down the Fourbie like they used to (though steering is still affected)
  • Brand new minimap, including "large" mode (similar to TY3's), and options to set to North-Is-Up or auto-rotate.
  • Leaderboards for the cart races, for completing the game (similar to TY1's) and for Opal collection
  • We've implemented systems for us to be able to increase the amount of grass and foliage on high-end PCs
  • The camera improvements we did on the TY1 remaster have been brought across to TY2 (though some bits aren't yet hooked up in the UI)
  • And of course it's running at 60fps, with full shadows, SSAO, Bloom with adaptive brightness, etc (depending on your PC specs)


Feel free to ask questions - we'll answer any we can in the comments!

Cheers
Linds

About This Game

Join TY on a RIPPER of an adventure to free his family from the DREAMING and stop the nefarious evil genius BOSS CASS from removing mammals from the top of the food chain.
To help you on your quest, you've got a BEAUT arsenal of boomerangs, sharp teeth, and the help of a few friends!

So don’t be a galah - let's head down under, and have a CORKER of a time! BEAUTY, BOTTLER, BONZA!



  • Explore 17 levels of the Australian Outback in their old-school 3D platforming glory
  • 13 different boomerangs including the Frostyrang, Flamerang and powerful Doomerang
  • Improved graphics; including updated shadows, reflections, HD resolutions and 60fps
  • Steamworks integration for achievements and leaderboards



G'day mate! Things can be a bit confusing at times, so let me remind you what's going on...
You are TY, the last of the Tasmanian Tigers. Raised by a family of Bilbies, you can only vaguely recall your real parents. You've always thought that all the other Tassie Tigers died a long time ago.

But then the Bunyip Elder found you, and told you that your family is alive, but trapped in the Dreaming. Now hold your horses... don't get upset... you see they're not stuck there forever, if you're up for a bit of an adventure!
You see, deep in the Outback, there's this kind of glowy portal thing that is a doorway to the Dreaming. And around that portal there are some carvings in the rock, where five ancient mystical Talismans used to lay. Now, all you have to do is find the five Talismans, put them in the carvings, and the portal to Dreaming will open!

Now, before you go off like a frog in a sock, there's just this one SMALL problem. You see there's this evil cassowary - Boss Cass - who's also after the Talismans. Yes. THAT Boss Cass. The one that trapped your family in the Dreaming in the first place, and told the school board to remove all the meat pies from the tuck shops. And if you didn't think that made him enough of a megalomaniac, he's ALSO trapped a whole bunch of your Bilby mates in cages all across the outback... something about overdue library books... Anyways, if you want to open the portal, you'll have to beat him and his henchmen to the Talismans!

Don't worry though, you won't be alone! You'll have a bunch of friends to help you along the way, including me - your old mate, Maurie. Now let's get down to brass tacks, find those Talismans, and rescue your family!
