Small Update: Version 1.031

Hey everyone!

Today's small update makes the game have parity with the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One builds (which come out on June 4th!).

The biggest new feature is dynamic resizing of the game screen, a feature that needed to be implemented for the above ports. Hopefully this fixes the dreaded "black full screen" bug that some people have seen, too!


Update 1.031
  • The game window is now freely resizeable, picking the closest integer resolution based on size (up to 4K)
  • Switching to fullscreen now attempts to pick the closest resolution to your screen size.
  • Fixed a bug where the Demon Boss saw sfx could play forever.
  • Fixed a softlock after triggering a cutscene in the city and instantly zoning.
  • Fixed a bug where text prompts could be drawn off screen (only seen in locales such as German).
  • Fixed a bug where the controller could vibrate forever with certain controllers.
  • Fixed a crash that happened if you disabled your Audio Driver during the game. (/shrug)
  • Adjusted L3/R3 button glyphs for 4th button glyph style.
  • Upgraded FNA framework to version 19.05 from 18.03. (General engine upgrade, minor fixes)

About This Game

With her family murdered in front of her and the ancient Timespinner device destroyed, Lunais is suddenly transported into a unknown world, stranded with seemingly no hope of return. Using her power to control time, Lunais vows to take her revenge on the evil Lachiem Empire, but sometimes the course of history isn’t quite as black and white as it seems...

Explore an intricate, connected world with beautifully drawn and detailed pixel art environments. Traverse between the barren present and luscious past of Lachiem, collecting elemental magic orbs and combining their power to destroy enemies with blades and spells. Befriend mysterious creatures called Familiars, such as the adorable dream dragon Meyef, and train them to aid you in battle. Test your skills and timing with intense boss battles, and you venture forth to take on the Emperor himself!
