Patch Notes (1.5.0) — Gamepad support!

Along the Edge v1.5.0 is now live for everyone!

The game is now fully compatible with Xbox and Steam controllers.

Full patch notes :
- engine improvements for better performance (animations, texts loading, assets management),
- the game is now fully compatible with game-pads (Xbox controllers, Steam controller),
- added a "fast skip" feature: long press on "space" on keyboard or the "A" button on game-pad now quickly skips texts and dialog (thanks for everyone who suggested it),
- launching a save in the "game over" state now shows you the achievements you've unlocked during your play-through instead of bringing you back to the main menu,
- fixed several minor bugs and glitches.

Enjoy,

Geoffroy.

Patch Notes (1.5.0 Beta)

Hello everyone,

we've just released the version 1.5.0 of Along the Edge in the beta channel.

We've rebuilt a lot of stuff under the hood to improve performance and added new features to address some quality of life issues.

Here are the patch notes:
- engine improvements for better performance (animations, texts loading, assets management),
- the game is now fully compatible with game-pads (Xbox controllers, Steam controller),
- added a "fast skip" feature: long press on "space" on keyboard or the "A" button on game-pad now quickly skips texts and dialog (thanks for everyone who suggested it),
- launching a save in the "game over" state now shows you the achievements you've unlocked during your play-through instead of bringing you back to the main menu,
- fixed several minor bugs and glitches.

Since we've changed so much things on the engine side, we feel like it's safer to let the update for a couple of weeks in beta before releasing it for everyone.
In theory, everything should work without any hiccups.
The team would like to thank anyone who may want to opt-in for testing the release. If you find any bug, we would really appreciate if you contact us either via the form on alongtheedge-game.com/contact or here, in the Steam Forums.

How to opt-in for the beta:
- go to your Steam Library,
- right-click on "Along the Edge" in the list of game on the left and choose "Properties",
- click on the "BETA" tab on the top of the pop-up window that appeared,
- select "beta - Beta Branch" in the drop-down menu (no password is required),
- the game should start updating immediately.

To opt-out and go back to the release branch, go back to the "BETA" tab in properties and choose "NONE - opt out of all beta programs".

Thanks,

Geoffroy.

Reviews

“Along the Edge is one of those rare stories that blur the lines so deeply you don’t quite know you’ve made a mistake until it’s too late”
8/10 – Emily Sowden, Gamespew

“In a sea of visual novels adhering all too closely to dull tropes and uninteresting conventions, Along the Edge is part of a new breed of interactive fiction rethinking what can be done with the genre”
Nate Kiernan, Kritiqal

“I was impressed with the differences to the story between playthroughs […], seeing totally different sections depending on your choices”
Kate England, Big Boss Battle

About This Game

Along the Edge is a visual novel set in the European countryside, where your choices impact the main character's personality and appearance.

Story


Daphné is at a dead-end. She's unsatisfied by her personal and professional life. So, when she inherits an old family house in a remote part of the country, she jumps at the opportunity to start anew.

Does she decide to embrace her legacy or does she hang on to her old way of life?

Features


  • An adult and slightly occult universe painted with the vibrant colors of the European countryside.

  • Each of your choices impact the main character personality, mood and appearance.

  • A huge amount of content, enough to fill a two years compendium of a comic-book series:
    — Over 450 hand-made full-screen illustrations and 20 characters with over 400 different variants and attitudes (including 38 possible appearance evolutions of the main character, Daphné),
    — 80.000 words in English and in French (which would translate into a 400 pages novel).

  • 60 different endings, 28 achievements to unlock. Throughout the story, your choices will impact:
    — how the plot ends (6 possibilities),
    — the destiny of the main character (4 possibilities),
    — the romantic relationships of the main character (3 possibilities),
    — several smaller plot points (such as the life or death of some supporting characters).
