September 20

Anniversary Sale!!!

Specifically, the 2-month anniversary! Most people do something special to celebrate the 1st-year, 5th-year, or 10th-year anniversary, but not me! I'm just happy and proud that Sojourner got released to the public a couple months back. If you haven't picked it up yet, this week is the time to do it.

At $1.99, this is an absolute steal. Except if you actually stole it, you wouldn't spend any money at all. It's a pretty easy game to pirate. But please don't pirate the game. Or if you do, you can send me a donation later to relinquish your guilt. Or you can promote the ever-living crap out of it; though, I would love if you did that whether you stole the game or not.

Also, happy Rosh Hashanah to all the game's Jewish fans, as well as to the Jewish people who have never heard of the game.

Version 1.1 released

Hey fans and haters of Sojourner:

The version 1.1 update of the game is now live. In order to get the update, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the game-- but don't worry about your save data: it won't get erased when you uninstall. If you are worried, though, you can easily copy (CTRL+C) your save file (most likely located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sojourner) and paste (CTRL+V) your save file somewhere safe.

Here are my scruffy notes of what has been changed. Except for one game-breaking bug, this is mostly stuff that no one will ever notice.

Version1.1 Changes:
[FIXED]-Players who got Monk as the starting class would become invisible when they tried to add any new party members.
[FIXED]-Using the B button to back out of the "adding a party member" or "changing class" screens doesn't work properly.
[FIXED]-Finding previously-visited hidden areas on the overworld is nearly impossible. Now there is a glowing X that appears
[FIXED]-If you activate Infinity Repel, and then warp, it gets turned off-- but the game will say that it's still on. You have to use it twice more in order to get it to actually turn off again.
[FIXED]-Weird gray boxes around the list of places you can teleport to.
[FIXED]-One secret area had a tile that wasn't working properly.

About This Game

Simultaneously a love letter to and a parody of classic role-playing games, Sojourner is the retro RPG that the world has been craving, but just didn't know it. By gracefully mixing modern gameplay elements with a familiar retro aesthetic, Sojourner features everything that you loved from the 8-bit RPGs of your childhood and leaves behind everything you didn't. Drawing heavy inspiration from NES classics like Mother (Earthbound), Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Legend of Zelda, while bringing in an original style and quirkiness all its own, Sojourner is a glorious blend of the old and the new, making for a very playable, very fun adventure for anyone who is a fan of the classics or simply a fan of RPGs in general.
