Recent changes:
  • Applied a fix for UI crashes.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause player loot drops to be invisible when loading from save game.
  • Fixed a case where a player loot could fall out of the world but not be given to the player. In order to avoid the issue of inaccessible loot, we're giving the player his loot if it falls through. One case was not handled.

  • Made melee better at hitting targets beneath the crosshair.

A bell tolls, endlessly, through the dark and fog of The Night, an funereal peal that sounds forever and brings madness, not comfort. A flash of scarlet amid the monochrome grass signals danger. A flash of scarlet amidst the colourless, low buildings of a long-abandoned colonial fort signals… well, not safety, but at least a link to something human. The colour red. The sound of that damned bell. A switch from white to black, and back again. So much from so little.

To think all these years, we’ve been crying out for more colour in first-person games (those tireless ambassadors of grey and brown), only for the most visually striking one in some time to neatly remove almost all colour. … [visit site to read more]
