Vsync & other fixes

Hey everyone!

The Search has been updated today with an added option for Vsync! You'll find it under the Settings option in the Menu. It should be on by default now. Hopefully this will make your GPUs happy :) A few other small fixes have been made to the Clue system where in rare cases clues wouldn't show up properly. Please let me know if you run into any issues with this update.

“...as a puzzle game and a solo-venture at that, there is an incredible and impressive amount of love and polish in every moment. I was surprised, repeatedly, by several clever twists and turns...I could easily and gladly exist in The Search's liminality for hours longer, in its lovingly designed and beautifully rendered levels, its gorgeous, thoughtful soundtrack, and curious, otherworldly atmosphere.”
Jay Is Games

“The game is short, about an hour or two. But it was enough to impress me. It knows what it is, and executes that well. Pleasing visuals, good music/sound, an intriguing setting/story and fresh puzzles round out this surprising little gem.”
8/10 – Doctors of Gaming

“The Search is a short but pleasant stay in a beautifully designed world with some original puzzles. A good game to play for an hour with a glass of wine in the company of friends where you can discuss the game’s meaning with an open mind.”

About This Game

Embark on a journey of discovery and inspiration in The Search - a story-driven puzzle-adventure set in a mysterious world where art comes to life!

In an unknown world, you'll search for clues about the nature of this place, as well as your own past. Guided only by the letters of a mysterious stranger, you'll find that this universe works differently from our own. It's a world in which obstacles can be overcome by your own creativity - and where art comes to life to create tears in the fabric of reality.

Who wrote the letters that guide you? What is the nature of this surreal, enchanted universe? And why were you chosen to take this journey?

Key features:

- A short, story-driven puzzle-adventure
- Uncover clues and solve inventive puzzles
- Gorgeous 3D artwork and a haunting soundtrack
- Voice acting from Cissy Jones (Firewatch, Life Is Strange)
