Massive Update

Hey everyone!

Real talk: Hiiro was originally made in an old-school version of GameMaker, and 8 years later, it shows. Lots of players have been reporting glitches with the save system, music system, and controller support, to name a few.

That’s why I've spent the last month porting Hiiro into the newest version of GameMaker: Studio!

This is a major update, and we are hoping it fixes essentially ALL of the issues that have have been reported over the last year, including glitches related to the save system, music system, game engine, controller support, and hopefully even those frustrating unexpected errors.

Additionally, the game now includes Steam achievements and an option to start a new game!

When we first started work on Hiiro in 2009, we were a few high school kids making a game for fun. We never dreamed this many people would play it, and still be downloading it years later! We’re delighted that so many people have enjoyed our game, and we hope this update allows even more people to do so.

Cheers,
Jon

“Get. This. Game. Especially if you like puzzle solving and exploring. Hiiro is something that can just put your mind at ease... The controls are great and I have no complaints in that department. Graphics are simple but beautiful, and the music is absolutely phenomenal.”
9.5 – Launch Party Gaming

“Todo concuerda en Hiiro; su música, su mundo, su tranquilidad… Es como llegar tarde pero sin prisas, con obstáculos pero sin nerviosismo. Un juego sencillo del que disfrutar, ya que disfrutando es como se consigue solucionar el gran puzle que es su historia.”
Equilateral

“Hiiro is a game that achieves more by delivering less. Minimalistic gameplay mechanics take a backseat to exploration and discovery. It’s relaxed ambiance, seamless world, and mildly challenging puzzles make it a title where it doesn’t matter whether you beat the game. If you’re exploring Hiiro’s world, then you’ve already won.”
