So without further ado, here's the change list:

• Engine: Optimized depth sorting
• Engine: Fixed inventory sliding bug
• Chapter 1: Fixed burned note freeze bug
• Chapter 2: Fixed graphical issue in Mr Morton's dream
• Chapter 2: Swapped lens graphics to hand-made equivalents

We've just released another update to delight and amuse you. It contains a little bit of everything - reminiscent of what we in Sweden call a "Smörgåsbord". My personal favourite is the additional reading aid cues you can get if you have problems reading small text. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not afflicted, but it's always fun to play around with voice synthesizers. I think it's strange that more games don't have such features.

Oh well. Enough ranting.

• Engine: Addressed general stability issues
• Engine: Optimized depth sorting
• Game: Tweaked UI
• Game: Added reading aid cues (Steam PC version only)
• Chapter 1: Reinserted high-resolution guitar (due to overwhelming popular demand)
• Chapter 1: Tweaked elevator buttons
• Chapter 4: Tweaked recipe puzzle

Hand-crafted point-and-click The Dream Machine is taking Swedish indie devs a lot longer to make than they’d planned. So it’s a shame that this extended development is really the series’ only weakness. As Chapter 4 finally appears, almost two years after Chapter 3, the story of Victor and Alicia is pretty hard to have remembered this far on. But it’s worth remembering, because this continues to be an absolutely superb experience. Here’s wot I think:>

As some of you have already noticed, things have started to move inside the machine lately.

The good news is that we're finally getting ready to release Chapter 4. The final assets are being finessed as I type this, and testing is going really well.

We're so confident in fact that we've set a release date - August 1. Mark your calenders, folks!

The weird news is that we've reshuffled the game a bit, and added a sixth chapter.

Our original plan was that Chapter 4 would contain three small dreams, but once we started working on them they grew in scope and ended up getting very big indeed. This ended up causing some performance problems, so we decided to cut Chapter 4 into two separate chapters, effectively giving the game six chapters.

Q: So, if I bought the bundle back when it was only five chapters do I have to buy the last one separately?
A: You get all of them, you beauty!

We hope you like that piece of news.

Cheers,
