Antihero 1.0.20 - March 2018 - THE POWDER HOUSE UPDATE

Fans of saboteurs and traps rejoice: your favorite explosives expert just got some new tricks!



The "Powder House" is a new infiltratable building that can appear on all multiplayer and AI skirmish maps. A level 1 Powder House will give you a discount to Saboteur recruitment, similar to the Orphanage and Strangefellows Lodge. At level 2, the Powder House upgrades the Saboteur's traps, causing them to steal a Lantern, rather than a Coin, from any opponent unlucky enough to stumble into one.

Additionally, each multiplayer map's building distribution has been changed - when a Powder House appears on a map, it takes the slot of a building that otherwise would've been there. You can no longer count on a fixed set of buildings appearing on a given map, which shakes things up further.

CHANGES
  • (New) "The Powder House" building type
  • (New) Changed building distribution on all multiplayer/skirmish maps
  • (UI) The "Attack?" action prompt now shows a skull icon when the attack will kill the target, and a sword icon when it will wound them.
  • (Fix) Display the proper bribe number in the "Bribe Acquired!" animation
  • (Fix) Fix a rare "Misfortune!" error that could occur when closing the Live Match dialog.

We welcome your comments and criticisms! You can reach us at bugs@antihero-game.com, on the Antihero Discord channel (https://discord.gg/DAKWppS) , and anywhere else fine thieving simulators are sold.

Also happy to share that we're on sale for the next week to celebrate the new update! Enjoy and happy thieving!

Antihero 1.0.16 - player feedback!

Hello Antiheroes,

I've just posted the latest build, 1.0.16. (The jump from 1.0.8 to .16 is due to lots of annoying, boring, behind-the-scenes work to get the iOS and Android versions out the door.)

This patch brings several improvements from the mobile build, and addresses some player feedback and requests. Behold!

CHANGES:
  • DLC purchased on one platform can be used on another
  • (Fix) Remember camera zoom level between turns
  • (Fix) Autosave when game is backgrounded
  • (Fix) Fix crash in Online menu for players with absurd numbers of Casual Games
  • (UI) "Fast-forward" button can be used to skip any animation (not just turn intro and outro)
  • (UI) two rows of hearts for high-health characters
  • (UI) Remember username in Login dialog
  • (Windows, Mac) improved load times
  • (Fix) Updated some German translations (thanks, xmanu!)

We welcome your comments and criticisms! You can reach us at bugs@antihero-game.com, on the Antihero Discord channel, and by shouting "Lightfinger" into the night sky.

Thanks!
- Tim and the Antihero team
