Trading Cards added

Hi there!
A lot of people have asked us for Trading Cards so Clemens sat down and created some beautiful collectibles including an emoticon of the old man. He even took the time and wrote back stories for some of the characters that you meet on the old man's journey. If you want to know what the favorite game of Huge the Vagabond is, you better collect them all!



The trading cards have actually been online for a few weeks now. But the heat of the summer made us forget to tell you about them. Sorry!

Have a great summer and be sure to do some walking along the seaside!

Best,
Felix

Old Man's Jounrey now has settings and wont crash on Windows 7 anymore

Hello everyone,
and thank you for your interest in our game. The positive reception of Old Man's Journey on Steam surprised us and makes us very happy! To give back we've been busy working on a major update for Mac and Windows.

The number 1 feedback we heard from you was that you would like to tweak Old Man's Journey to better fit your PC. So we finally added a real settings menu that you can access either from the pause or main menu.
We also added a way to quit the game from the main menu for those of you who don't like using cmd-q or alt-f4 to exit from a game :)

A few people told us that the game crashes on their Windows 7 machine. The reason for that was the plugin we used to play videos in our game. Luckily Unity just added their own VideoPlayer. So we updated Unity, made sure everything works as expected (something always breaks when updating to a major new version) and are glad to report that it now runs on our Windows 7 test case.

We also fixed a few bugs, improved some graphics and added a turtle. Can you find it?

All the best,
Felix

PS: Sorry that the fix took a bit longer than promised. That's beause we won an Apple Design Award and had to travel to the United States again to pick it up. We're so proud of our little game!
