Developer Update #3

Hello Everyone,
we implemented all PC related features and the game has now entered our QA where we test it thoroughly on multiple setups. Once we finished the majority of tests, we'll release the free demo. We expect to release the demo this month. If the demo runs well on the majority of machines, we'll release the full version, otherwise we'll fix what needs to be fixed first. We want to make sure that PC players have a great 'Day1' experience with the full version of Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom.

Some information about the PC features:

Version: The PC Version is based on the latest console version which received 3 patches since the release. The game is really complex and we could iron out many things that will improve the whole 20-25 hours gameplay experience.

Controls: Monster Boy will support various control methods and you can configure it to your liking. Use a controller, keyboard or/and mouse and freely map it. Here's a question to you: If you pick a controller to play the game, which one would it be?

Ultrawide Monitors: Several levels and scenes in the game are wider than 16:9 so we unlocked them to display fullscreen on ultrawide monitors. Other scenes like boss fights remain 16:9. We needed to add a feature to blend these nicely. You'll be able to test this ultrawide feature in the demo and your feedback is welcome. We want to make y'all happy and enjoy the game to the fullest on your PC's.

Alright ...so the next Developer Update will be the Demo release then! ^_^

Developer Update #2

Hello Everyone,
while we work on the PC version and the Steam release, we wanted to give you another update today: We'll launch a free demo of the game first!

We hope that many players will try it on their machine and give feedback so we understand how well it runs on various configurations. We want to make sure that the game runs fine for a big audience before wrapping up the full release. There's only a certain amount of configurations we can test ourselves and we hope to get even more results after the demo release.

In return for your cooperation and support while testing the demo, we're going to set a lower purchase price for the PC release compared to consoles. Please look forward to the release of the demo and stay tuned for more Developer Updates in the future. <3
