Update 5



The Great Peace update is now LIVE

As you journey to restore peace to Gemea, a new creature has appeared.

This creature was last seen so long ago that is now believed to be a myth.  A creature that only exists in stories.

The people say it's a good omen - they are said to only appear in lands where wise and benevolent people reside in peace...

This, however, is not the only creature spotted in Gemea. Kari and Tack are rushing around the island trying to collect as much information as possible about the new fox species that have been spotted!

p.s. We now officially support Simplified Chinese! 我们现在正式支持简体中文!

Major changes....
  • NEW: Simplified Chinese Localisation
  • NEW: Sightings of different sub-species of Grass Fox have been made all over Gemea...
  • NEW: Legend tells of a mythical animal that may appear for those that bring about the Great Peace.

  • IMPROVEMENT: dismiss a farm hand from the farm management book.
  • IMPROVEMENT: player can cancel a quest board task by interacting with the quest board again.
  • IMPROVEMENT: added custom waypoints to the map! You can cycle through these to change the icon type.
  • IMPROVEMENT: custom pathing is now possible -- you can now set a custom destination for your Celestial Compass.
  • IMPROVEMENT: it's now possible to toggle active quests on and off from the map
  • IMPROVEMENT: mouse interaction with the map is now improved:
    1) Navigation is now edge-scrolling based instead of click+dragging.
    2) The mouse pointer is now the selection reticule instead of it locked to the center of screen.
  • IMPROVEMENT: updated controller support -- more controllers should now work natively.
  • IMPROVEMENT: Cats no longer instantly disappear if their appearance rules are invalidated but you're actively looking for them.

  • FIX: NPC world icons sometimes did not disappear after the NPC had moved on from the area.
  • FIX: made 2 tree plots in the Desert region easier to access -- they were previously VERY hard to get to.
  • FIX: when backpack is full, don't allow auto-pickup of loot drops -- just notify of full backpack.
  • FIX: NPC grunt variations implemented -- these were previously limited to a small set of available 'voice types'
  • FIX: animal previews are back
  • FIX: adopt a groffle quest, befriend not completable if player builds pen and adopts groffle before getting quest
  • FIX: fabbit bounce sounds are now working
  • FIX: Great beard off quest, resolved some players having issue with finishing quest
  • FIX: Spike the sprite no longer appears in Arcadia after collection and loading.

edit: we've made some further fixes and released as a minor update:
Minor Updates...
  • Fix: resolved missing language data issue for new Russian, Japanese or Korean region players. These languages are in the works but aren't yet included. Stay tuned!
  • Fix: fixed missing mouse input in farm edit mode.
  • Fix: added a small graphical fix to the gamma code. This was showing bad values in low light conditions for a small number of graphics cards.
  • Fix: fixed cat interaction issue (When they were still visible, but its appearance condition meant it wanted to hide, it wasn't able to be collected. You can now collect them whenever they're visible)
  • Fix: fix biome happiness counts for trees and cats -- these numbers were wrong, so it looked like some trees/cats were missing for some people when in fact they had them!

Reviews

“This is about something far more gentle, more laid back, where loveliness is the priority above all else. And that’s not really a phrase that can be used too often in gaming, making it enormously worth celebrating here.”
RPS Recommended – Rock Paper Shotgun

“The art and music are beautiful, and the lack of the combat in the game makes exploring Gemea a restful experience. Despite the narrative resolution being lovely and satisfying, I recommend not rushing to reach it - Yonder is better if it’s about the journey, not the destination.”
9/10 – Hyper (PC Authority)

“...if you’re just looking for a delightful game that allows you to explore to your heart’s contest, Yonder is exactly what you’re looking for.”
A – Gaming Age

About This Game

Yonder is set on the vast island of Gemea, a lush frontier with eight distinct environments ranging from tropical beaches to snow-capped summits. Each location has its own flora and fauna, along with changing seasons and a day-night cycle. Gemea, once a paradise, still maintains the appearance of one, yet an evil murk has enshrouded the land and its people in despair.



As the hero you will explore Gemea, uncovering the island's secrets and the mysteries within yourself as you embark on a journey of self-discovery. On a quest to become the island’s champion, you join forces with Sprites, creatures who are the only thing capable of dispersing the murk, to save Gemea and its people.

The towns of Gemea are filled with kind-hearted residents who have faced many difficulties since the murk arrived. By contributing to the island through farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing, relationships can be built with the locals, who offer everything from resources to a new farm as rewards.

At the heart of Yonder, is a game that delivers a sense of discovery, wrapped in a familiar yet unique adventure.

Features:

  • A vibrant open world full of things to discover and places to explore.
  • Set your own pace; trail-blaze across the world or settle down for a spot of quiet fishing and farming.
  • Extensive character customization.
  • Master professions like carpenter, chef, tailor and more to help the residents of Gemea.
  • Craft and trade items to solve puzzles as you banish the murk from the island.
  • Befriend and adopt endearing creatures.
  • Build and harvest multiple farms across 8 diverse biomes, ranging from grasslands through dense forest, Caribbean tropics and more.
  • Set in a welcoming world you'll want to visit again and again
  • Multiple creative routes to achieve objectives.
  • A dynamic living world – seasonal changes affect routes, animals migrate, day/night and evolving weather conditions affect the world.
  • Spend time doing what you want: fishing, farming, crafting, questing, picking up rocks. It’s all up to you!
