1.1.0 and Czech language!

Hey guys,

Quern 1.1.0 is here! This patch focuses on making Quern a smoother and a more enjoyable experience. To make the game more accessible, we implemented some extra features for players less experienced with puzzle games. Besides all that, Quern runs better than ever before!

If you run into any bug in the game please be sure to start a thread about it here or email us about it at feedback@querngame.com

  • Czech language is added!
  • An ingame map is now available to better find your way around the island. Just hit the M button as you wander :)
  • There is now an option to ask for hints in the game. Useful if you‘ve been stuck for hours with no further ideas on what to do.
  • We received quite a lot of feedback about useful items not being indistinguishable from ambience. Now there is an option to highlight interactable objects in the menu.
  • We fixed a long overdue bug where some letters and hints showed up in unreadable quality when viewed on low graphics settings.
  • We also worked on optimisation. The game should now be a little more forgiving for less powerful computers and run noticeably smoother.
  • We implemented a system check - if your computer is under the system requirements, the game will alert you and give you tips.
  • Various bug fixes.
  • A less noticeable change is that the game has been saturated ever so slightly, making it a little more colourful.

Trading Cards & New Languages

Hey guys!

We’ve spent the last few months polishing Quern based on your feedback in reviews and our Discussions page. We seem to have tackled all kinds of technical issues and managed to bring the Quern experience for more people around the world by including four new languages: German, Italian, Russian and Spanish players now can enjoy the game in their mother tongue! We also implemented Steam trading cards.

  • German, Italian, Russian and Spanish languages added!
  • Trading cards are now available!
  • We (hopefully) fixed the problem some OS X players experienced where the inventory and the letters menu were completely black.
  • Some of you requested the completely strange feature to be able to climb DOWN the ladders. Now it is possible.
  • Even less places to jump out of the world and get stuck.
  • Notebook images now don’t lose quality after loading the game.
  • Sad news for speedrunners: saving and loading during the first few seconds now doesn’t let you skip most of the game. Time to find new tricks :)
  • There is now an option to adjust the volume of your footsteps and jumps.
  • The swamp isles saves a bit more of your work in case you forgot something there and want to return later.
  • The ladder in the north shore now doesn’t look like you can put in a few axes and still be able to climb it.
  • Optimization of the Alchemy and Botany area
