Patch 1.4 notes

This patch includes the full soundtrack as free DLC and multilanguage support!

Updating the game based on community feedback is something that we believe is important. Every so often we will either make some changes or add in something completely new.

Alright!
  • Subtitles were added for English
  • Subtitles and interface were added for French, German, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, simplified Chinese, Spanish, and traditional Chinese
  • The soundtrack has been made available as free DLC
Bugfixes
  • Level 4's crusher will no longer push you into the ground if you stand at the edge of it
  • We fixed a bug where floating bomb pickup items fell to the ground
  • Swings in levels 3 and 7 will now always move at a consistent speed
  • A level 7 boss bug that would prevent the boss fight from ending has been removed
  • Falling into a slime pit and getting hit by an anvil at the same time no longer freezes the controls
  • An issue with the level 4 boss's charge has been resolved

What's next?
  • We will soon release a new playable character with some special surreal content as an enhancement to the whole game for free

“The Final Specimen Arrival actually comes across as one of the funniest games I've seen this year by far. I mean heck, if you watch the trailer, it looks like the beginning of a Monty Python sketch mixed up with a platformer.”
Indie Retro News

“The Final Specimen is a strange game that fills a highly specific niche. I did play lots of games of this sort in the nineties, and I appreciate the throwback, but the game does stand on its own merits. Give it a shot.”

About This Game

The Final Specimen is a comedic sci-fi adventure game in the style of the classic 2D platformers of the '90s. Packed with whimsical settings and eccentric characters, this energetic, challenging title brings an exciting take to old-school gaming.

The story begins when our hero, a young earthling, is transported to a distant planet. After facing sudden assault from the world's inhabitants, he soon finds out that his arrival is no coincidence. What he learns sets him off on a mission to prevent the annihilation of the planet - and the subsequent conquest of earth - by a nefarious alien mastermind.

The world's terrain ranges from the grassy to the mountainous to the aquatic to the mechanical. From rope swings to grappling hooks, there is no shortage of new tools you can discover to aid you in your progress. And if the ability to punch your enemies' lights out isn't enough, you can also collect ammunition - your own personal arsenal of pocket bombs.

You are the only human who has the power. You are the culmination of years of alien experimentation. You are THE FINAL SPECIMEN.
