Update 1.0.1.7902



Good tidings to you, Slayers of Beastmen.

"They’re an infestation! We’re performing a service..."

Indeed, Joe Player, indeed.

Today we have another update. Focusing on common issues, stability, and gameplay tweaks.

A nice little quality of life change we added is the ability to view the pickup radius on boats, balloons, haunts and some encounters.



and a minor change to add a backer to all ‘vote buttons’ to make them clearer in all environments



Fixes
  • Fixed issue where several “icy” enemies weren’t properly tagged as Ice class
  • Fixed bug where Embedded Blade encounter wouldn’t drop an item if you didn’t already have it unlocked in the lore store
  • Very Low Quality setting now uses proper texture resolution which should result in slightly improved performance
  • Fixed issue where Owlbear’s death hug attack was always blocked
  • Fixed Mimic placement in the Encounter Card
  • Fixed an issue where the Dungeon Merchant items would all be greyed out, despite having enough cash to buy (maybe he just didn’t like you? How rude...)
  • Fixed an issue where you could Pickup Party and pull people out of other nearby boats or balloons
  • In certain circumstances during local co-op, a mouse may have lost the ability to control a boat
  • In dungeon crawl online, the number of completed dungeons may have been incorrectly reported across the network
  • End game credits would freeze if entering the menu
  • Incorrect text was displayed when entering a carnival without a ticket while playing online
  • Fixed some intermittent freezes on Linux due to primitive type conversions
  • In Frost Adventure online: the Tavern Pirate fight could be engaged by multiple clients online, and the enemies would double up
  • When attacking a haunt from a boat: the portraits of characters pulled in to the fight are now accurate
  • Fighting the Kraken when Deimos is active now respects the original ocean diorama
  • Fixed an issue with some combat allowing players to use unlimited items per turn
  • Fixed an issue with the Kraken not dropping any loot in some instances
  • Fixed an issue with Quest Items not being removed from inventories when they are no longer needed (Shovel, Mead, Key Fragments etc..)

Gameplay
  • Forest Mystic/Protector no longer have pierce attack
  • Forest Protector now has group lightning attack
  • Pixies now do full attack damage on their regular attack
  • Chaos Fairy now casts Protect Group instead of Protect Others
  • Lightning Hawk Regular attack fixed (was too easily blocked) and now pierces
  • Hide boots set to +2 vitality and Fur Boots set to +4 vitality
  • Added pickup radius hex highlighting for boats and balloons
  • Haunts and certain encounters now show combat radius when moused over

Changes
  • Added version validation check in the online browser
  • General polish to dead adventurers
  • Improved Owlbear attack FX
  • Improved Storm Lighting
  • Toned down and optimized snowstorm FX
  • Optimized Rainstorm FX
  • Adding backing to HUD Vote Buttons to increase visibility
  • Version Warning added to Online Lobby to show when the host’s version doesn’t match your version
  • General polish pass on player models
  • Jelly Cube attack FX now 300% more goopy
  • Identify Scrolls cannot be used in the overworld on a treasure chest that a character is also standing on

May the rolls be ever in your favour.

Micro Update 1.0.7818 - Orbs fixed!

Just a micro-update here - we finally figured out how to reproduce the "can't use orbs" bug, and decided to update you guys right away!

You don't need to restart your game, or go get new orbs or anything. Just make sure steam updates the game to 1.0.7818

About This Game



The King is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant. Now the once peaceful kingdom of Fahrul is in chaos.

With nowhere left to turn and stretched beyond her means, the queen has put out a desperate plea to the citizens of the land to rise up and help stem the tide of impending doom. Set off with your make-shift party, either single player, local, or online co-op. Choose to split your party up and cover more ground, or stick together for protection. A sound strategy can mean the difference between life and death.



For The King is a challenging blend of Strategy, JRPG Combat, and Roguelike elements. Each play through is made unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Brave the relentless elements, fight the wicked creatures, sail the seas and delve into the dark underworld. None before you have returned from their journey. Will you be the one to put an end to the Chaos?

Fight and die as a party in fast paced and brutal turn-based combat using a unique slot system for attacks and special abilities. Find and gather herbs for your trusty pipe to heal your wounds and cure your maladies. Set up safe camps or brave the horrors that nightfall brings.



Just remember adventurer, you do this not for the riches or fame but for your village, for your realm, For The King!
