Bladestar - Version 1.1

Greetings Pilots!

Today we have a patch for Bladestar that adds additional Steam functionality. Most importantly we now support Steam Achievements. While the game has always had its own Achievement system that earns you XP to unlock Upgrades, many of you had expressed interest in these being official Steam Achievements as well. Now they have been integrated with Steam.

The changes include:

  • Added Steam Achievement support for the already existing in-game Achievements.
  • Steam Leaderboard added.
  • Added in-game link to the Steam Leaderboards from the "Extras" Menu.
  • Moved "Upgrades" to the Main Menu so that it was easier for players to find where to spend their XP.
  • Reduced the Bloom on World 3 to increase visibility.
  • Several very minor balance tweaks.

This should now be the final version of the game. We hope you enjoy the changes.

Thank you for playing our games!
