Today's update adds support for both HTC Vive Controllers and Oculus Touch. The implementation is very unique as it simulates a touch screen rather than using the common laser pointer approach. Laser pointers tend to cause wrist pain and make it hard to be precise and click buttons.

The video below demonstrates the new functionality
Controller bindings are as follows:
  • Press Trigger, Touchpad Button with Vive or X/A with Touch to tap
  • Long press and hold Trigger, Touchpad Button with Vive or X/A with Touch for right-click
  • Hold grip button on each controller to change screen size
  • Press left menu button with Vive or Y with Touch to Reset Orientation
There are a few known issues / limitations:
  • The use of the on-screen keyboard with the controllers requires the app to be installed in the default Steam Library folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\...).
  • The touch contacts in environments with fixed screens will not be exactly where they need to be.
  • With a flat screen, the touch points will disappear as they hit the edge making it hard to click buttons at the edges of the screen. This is not an issue with the curved screen.
  • The screen is still on a fixed position. Use Reset Orientation to change its orientation.
The release also includes some bug fixes:
  • The app sometimes prevented Steam/SteamVR from shutting down.
  • The app will now close correctly when Windows shuts down
  • Reduced screen latency with multi-monitors

Let me know in the comments if you experience any issues.

In addition to MI7’s Mainline software, operatives will also need to use a number of other online tools including tracking software that integrates with the map.bp application. By working in close collaboration with Field Agents, such as Special Agent Cooper, it’s possible to monitor the movements of both suspects and packages.

Information gleaned from physical surveillance can often be invaluable in linking evidence and providing new leads. In addition to location data, close liaison with Field Agents can also provide photographic evidence that can aid operatives piece together the necessary clues and information needed to make a successful arrest and subsequent conviction.

Hello all! Today we are happy to give you a completely new soundtrack for the game along with some other fixes and tweaks as always.

- New soundtrack; 40+ minutes of music, made by Daniel Anderstedt.
If you like what you hear, you can check out his soundcloud page at
and his solo project DRAVG at

The music is louder than before, so the default music volume when you start the game for the first time is lowered to 0.4 instead of 1. You can of course increase the volume in the options menu as before.

- Resized the Leaderboards window so that it is a bit smaller, and not as much "in your face". Also fixed a bug so now the correct player window is opened when pressing on a player score.

- Made some adjustments to a couple of levels in the "City" part. So they are a bit longer.

- Smoother camera movement and smoother rotation of the player when the direction of gravity is changed.

- Other minor bugfixes and tweaks.

Let us know what you think of the new music and if you discover any bugs, or have constructive feedback to give, please do let us know. The community have helped us a lot with improving the game so far! Thank you :)

New sound effects, trading cards and more achievements are now high on the to do list.

Have a nice day!

The Night Christmas Ended has now been released. We decided to just go ahead and put it out there a day early.

Although it has been a day of great celebration in 'Goblin Land' where we hang, we also noticed that it was acting kind of funny. Doing a live stream to show off our new game, it sadly crashed on us. Well! Whaddaya know, releasing games can just be that crazy.

The bug which occurs on some stages after you beat it is caused by a last minute change we did yesterday. It's all sorted out and will be patched in a jiffy.

New customers won't experience it, and those of you who couldn't wait to get your hands on the game (much love you guys <3), will get the update automatically.

In other news we plan on doing some more events showing of the game, both online and in our local area, maybe even sing a christmas carol for you (Goblin style!), so stay tuned for more updates, and:

Have fun playing guys ^^ We all look forward to see where this goes.

Have a happy green holiday!
