Hello friends,

Today we are releasing a huge update to Mountain. Every single system has been improved, as well as every shader, particle effect, texture and model. We made about 400 optimizations, updates and fixes - I have summarized the main ones below. This was in fact more work than making the original!

Check out this comparison:

This process began a year ago, it started by putting in some minor fixes, then got deeper as we realized how much better it could be. We are just a lot more experienced than we were in 2014.

This was motivated because I wanted to get it right, but mainly as a thank you to you guys, who have been so patient and positive over the years. Your enjoyment, discussion, exploration and sharing of this game has been so incredibly encouraging... I cannot express enough gratitude to you all.

Main updates
+ Different Mountain Types with unique flora
+ Improved Mountain shapes & appearance
+ HDR rendering, new color correction & post fx system
+ New cloud system and revamped environmental effects
+ Improvements and optimizations to all shaders
+ Re-written procedural flora systems, will produce more trees and plants with better arrangement
+ More tree and plant varieties added, with improved leaf, plant & tree dynamic effects
+ Addition of dynamic birds & butterflies
+ More artifacts
+ Music keyboard added to UI
+ Slow Motion mode
+ MIDI Control is now possible and works with any midi input device
+ More Secret modes to discover and improved old ones

**Note - due to the scale of this update - you will lose your existing save!**

So, please enjoy. If you like it, please give it a review & recommend it to your friends.

Thank you so much,

*edit: we released a small patch today that moves the Auto Camera switch back to the main menu. You can stop automatic movement by toggling this button.
The You Are God achievement will now count your total time playing Mountain, which can be across many Mountains.
