April Update


Greetings Citizen!

Spring has finally reached Sweden and it's about effin' time, if you ask me!

This winter just wouldn't end... If I were to review it I would give it 1 star out of 5 possible. Too long. Too dark. Too cold. Would not experience again, given a choice. But now it's finally over, so let's peel away about 7 layers of clothing and get busy celebrating!

If you still need to be convinced about joining the party, let me give you another reason: We just released an update to the game! How cool is that?!

Yeah?

That got you in the mood, huh? Feel like celebrating now, do you? Those ol' hips of yours just started gyrating, did they?

As I knew they would! No doubt. No doubt.

This update changes how the interaction options are displayed. Finally, you no longer have to look at the bottom of the screen to see what you're trying to do. The text follows the mouse cursor around at all times. It's something I've been wanting to change for a while, and now's the time.

We've also added 200 interaction options to Chapter 6. There's still more we'd like to add there, but this is a solid step in the right direction. We hope you agree.

Anyway, here's the full patch rundown:

• Engine: Tweaked UI
• Chapter 6: Added 200 interaction options
• Game: Improved sound effect quality

As always, don't be shy if you see something strange or buggy in the game.

Cheers,

February Update


Mellow greetings!

February's almost over, people! How does that feel? Are you as excited as I am? February is hands down my least favorite month of the year, and I can't wait until this old bag is over and done with! While we're waiting for spring, we thought we might as well put our time to good use and get some work done improving The Dream Machine.

This month we've been looking into some problems people have been reporting regarding the save system. Previously you could encounter a bug if you named your save starting with certain characters. I'm happy to report that that's been fixed now.

I've removed the inventory size limit, which would prevent players from picking up more than 19 items. Right now, the items will be stored offscreen so you'll have to use some of the other items in order to see them, but at least you'll be able to pick everything up you want. It's obviously not a perfect solution, but we'll keep it for now since the problem only affected a very small number of players. I hope to be able to add an extra row to the inventory for the next months update.

[UPDATE: The bug that caused the save files not to be detected has been fixed now. So the problem outlined below doesn't exist anymore. Yay!]

There's also a more troubling issue, were the game doesn't seem to recognize the save files for some players. I still haven't found the root cause of this, but I've included a makeshift workaround in this update. It's a debug function that I've exposed in order to ensure that you can load your save game without loss of progress.

In order to access the new load feature, press SHIFT + L. It'll open an input field where you can paste the contents of any save file. On PC the game saves are stored in a folder called "saveGames". They can be opened with any kind of text editing software. So just copy the contents and paste them into the game. Obviously it's a temporary solution, but it'll allow you to load your saved games while I examine the issue further.


Anyway, here's the full patch rundown:

• Engine: Fixed issue with save game names
• Engine: Fixed issue with save game not being detected for some players
• Engine: Added a text based loading option (SHIFT + L)
• Engine: Fixed issue with the Autosave file not loading properly
• Game: Allowed the inventory to extend beyond 19 items

As always, don't be shy if you see something strange or buggy in the game.

Cheers,
