Full Release - Downward v1.0



Hi Guys!

Finally, here we are! The Downward 1.0 version has been released and we are out from Early Access!
We are very proud of ourselves and, above all, we are proud of the Downward community that helped us so much in these six monts, allowing us to come out from EA (which not very common these days): thank you all!

Version 1.0

So with Downward v1.0 among other things we have finally the full story and the three alternative endings (we can say the endings are "Dark Souls like", so please don't expect some "The Witcher" or "Mass Effect" stuff, we are a small indie team after all!!). Unlocking the two extra endings will allow you to discover the final lore elements about the different characters, and let you make different choices at the very end of the game.

Support

Of course, we will continue the constant support to the game after the full release, not only to fix reported stuff etc. but also to keep some promises we made:

- Linux full release build is our first duty, as promised we will work on this straightway.
- Updating the demo, (the actual demo is quite old at the moment)
- Fps optimization
- Other minor adjustments

Thank you all,
Caracal Team
