Back in the saddle!

Hi guys, We are back!



Showing Downward at Gamescom among so many good games was an amazing experience, it has filled us with joy to see how many players came to visit us there from all europe, thanks to all of you guys!

We have collected a lot of feedback, and now that we are back, we are more than ready to work hard to make the Downward Experience even better!
With the new data obtained we are working on a new update that will focus mainly on increasing fps everywhere, especially in critical areas (Currently the linux version has better FPS performance), and in solving the very few graphic glitches left.
We will also do our best to try to find the time to insert new playable content in the next update (as usual).

Thanks to everyone for supporting downward, which is becoming more and more a great reality, especially to the guys who came to find us at Gamescom. Please continue to give us all the feedback you can, we are always listening and ready to consider any kind of tips!

Do not forget to follow us on our social for more information and trivia about Downward!

Cheers,
Game Director
