Sorry for the delay guys, we've been all wrapped up in meeting Owlboy deadlines and traveling lately, but the new update is finally live for Mac, and it should work for the new El Capitan OS.



The changes are the same as the PC version, but here's the list nonetheless:

Change list:
  • Changed CD achievement from 6 to 7 CDs.
  • Getting to the space stage now requires you to aquire the Philosophers Stone.
  • Golden Enemies no longer disappear in Endless Mode.
  • Removed flash effect on first shot.
  • Adjusted some colouring in the cape upgrade effect.
  • Fixed auto shoot! Press Middle Mouse Button to enter AutoShoot mode. This mode will take away uneccessary strain to your fingers.(remember also that you can press Q to auto-grab CDs)

I will also try to get the Linux update up and running ASAP(hopefully within the weekend).

If you experience any issues with the update, plase feel free to get in touch at support(at)dpadstudio(dot)com or post in the Steam community :-)

Happy Halloween everyone! We celebrate by doing a couple of tweaks to the game, and you'll find list of changes below!



Change list:
  • Changed CD achievement from 6 to 7 CDs.
  • Getting to the space stage now requires you to aquire the Philosophers Stone.
  • Golden Enemies no longer disappear in Endless Mode.
  • Removed flash effect on first shot.
  • Adjusted some colouring in the cape upgrade effect.
  • Fixed auto shoot! Press Middle Mouse Button to enter AutoShoot mode. This mode will take away uneccessary strain to your fingers.

So, the biggest change is that you now won't be taken to the final stage immidietly after defeating the last boss. You'll now have to find another way to enter this stage. A lot of the reason for this, is because that stage is so challenging at this point, that you won't be prepared until you're fully powered up! Remember that you can collect additional CD pieces in the Endless mode, to upgrade your character.

I'm hoping to that this update will have fixed some controller issues with the XboxOne controller, if not(or if you have any other issues), please feel free to let us know!

(changes released on Windows. Mac and Linux to follow shortly.)

We spent the weekend trying to address a few of the bugs that has been reported in the Savant Steam Community, aswell as adding a little something extra!

GOTY mode has now been fixed up, and you can activate it by completing all of the achievements in the game. This will add a button on the Main Menu which let's you turn on GOTY mode.

When GOTY mode is turned on, enemies in the game will be replaced by goats-themed robots(and yes, we know it's a terrible pun).

We've added two new leaderboards for this occation, Vario GOTY(Time Attack) and Endless GOTY.

Other issues addressed in this patch is:
+ Fixed a crash when selecting CDs in the pause menu.
+ Fixed a crash that would occur when using chain attacks on enemy.
+ Fixed a couple of grammar errors.

We will continue to fix issues as they are reported, so please feel free to turn to the discussion community to report any faults.

Enjoy!

This week we put Savant - Ascent up for a 50% sale here on Steam, and our artist Simon(who also draws Savant's album covers) made a new poster to commemorate this!

Full-res version here: Savant Poster on Imgur

Alot of people have been asking whether there will be more content updates for Savant - Ascent, and while it's tempting to continue adding new ideas to the game, we are currently working full-time on our other project, Owlboy.

We've only just got started making games, and we've got a ton of projects coming, so feel free to keep up with us through our official website DPadStudio!

We hope you enjoy playing our games as much as we enjoy working on them!
