10/30/2017 patch notes.

Here a list of things that were patched/implemented:

1. Fixed a bug where keybinds were not recognized.

2. Re-scripted the way scenes are loaded/unloaded to reduce RAM strain. This should prevent PCs with 8GB RAM from crashing when loading between heavy scenes.

We are currently hard at work with asset optimization, namely the Hospital and Mansion scenes. We are also cleaning our scripts to reduce garbage collection and memory leaks. Kindly bear with us as we try to make the game experience better for our players.

Note: Regarding the Steam Achievements, some of them are still buggy and are being looked at. However, the ending achievements should now be unlockable.

10/8/2017 patch notes.

Here a list of things that were patched/implemented:

1. Fixed Hospital's light switch bug which, when accessed, caused the power unit to malfunction.

2. Fixed incorrect date of birth on Vivian's tombstone.

3. Removed a metal blue cabinet inside Oliver's Photo Lab which created collision problem for some players, causing them to be 'pushed off' and fall off the game world.

Note: To rectify issue #3, we tried to implement 'safety nets' in all scenes so players who fell off the game world will be moved to the starting point of that scene. Unfortunately, it caused more problems, such as not being able to go down the well and having the message in the sewer that said "We are sorry that you encountered a game breaking bug" despite the game still running fine. In the end, we removed all the 'safety nets'.

For anyone who falls off the game world, simply select 'Quit' (do NOT select 'Save and quit'). Then start the game again and everything will be fine. Should you accidentally click on 'Save and quit', just let us know and we will help remedy your situation.
