Update 8



Hello explorers of Gemea!

The "Fair Weather" update is now LIVE :steamhappy:
"Fair Weather" is a large care and support update aimed at allowing more people to enjoy the game.
Many improvements and system based features have been added, and every nook and cranny has been optimised to make the game run great on lower spec machines, but also truly shine for those with great systems!

At the same time, we've polished a lot of things where we could improve the look and feel of the game without sacrificing performance.

Major changes....
  • NEW: Added official OpenGL support for those suffering from DirectX issues! A lot of people have eagerly been awaiting this, we're happy to say it's finally here!
  • NEW: brand new occlusion system. This gives a large performance improvement for machines that struggle to draw high amounts of geometry.
  • NEW: ambient occlusion system. Faster and smoother, the new system looks great at a fraction of the cost.
  • NEW: new radiosity system. Our realtime radiosity is the cornerstone of our lighting technology. This new version is a lot faster and more directly supported on a larger range of hardware.

  • IMPROVEMENT: optimised LOD and mesh management system.
  • IMPROVEMENT: faster, prettier shaders.
  • IMPROVEMENT: optimised general CPU and GPU usage
  • IMPROVEMENT: reduced issues due to world streaming. Less performance hiccups/hitching when running around the world.
  • IMPROVEMENT: streaming + loading optimisations. You can now get into the game world very rapidly!
  • IMPROVEMENT: saving system. The game can now save super-fast so there's no hiccups when auto-saving.

  • FIX: camera glitch that can occur on saving
  • FIX: resolved a crash that can occur when hiring farm hands for your farm - boy was it fun chasing that one down!
  • FIX: solved a very rare, but repeatable crash when at Arcadia
  • FIX: instances of some NPCs falling out of world
  • FIX: serious physics glitch on slower computers
  • FIX: out of memory issues on some low spec machines
  • FIX: multiple collision issues
  • FIX: Shader/Material bug on some older GPU's
  • FIX: startup crashes with some older CPU's
  • FIX: solved multiple areas of player getting stuck on collision
  • FIX: Escape key not working for some microsoft keyboards
  • FIX: scroll wheel issues on emulated mice
  • FIX: crazy mouse sensitivity on track pad
  • FIX: wide screen aspect ratio issue on a menu
  • FIX: crash with a specific multi-gpu setup
  • FIX: solved the focus issue on Windows 8 and 3 monitor setup
  • FIX: serious physics glitch on slower computers

Hot fix 1 changes....
  • FIX: Fixed a case where Maggie would freeze game
  • FIX: Resolved rare save game not loading correctly when DLC item was in use

Hot fix 2 changes....
  • FIX: crashes/lockup due to halloween event
  • FIX: issues with Scarecrow quest
  • FIX: achievements now working in offline mode (finally!)

“This is about something far more gentle, more laid back, where loveliness is the priority above all else. And that’s not really a phrase that can be used too often in gaming, making it enormously worth celebrating here.”
RPS Recommended – Rock Paper Shotgun

“The art and music are beautiful, and the lack of the combat in the game makes exploring Gemea a restful experience. Despite the narrative resolution being lovely and satisfying, I recommend not rushing to reach it - Yonder is better if it’s about the journey, not the destination.”
9/10 – Hyper (PC Authority)

“...if you’re just looking for a delightful game that allows you to explore to your heart’s contest, Yonder is exactly what you’re looking for.”

About This Game

Unwind and enjoy the slow life in Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, a relaxing open-world adventure game.



Yonder is set in the world of Gemea. A natural island paradise with eight distinct environments ranging from tropical beaches to snow-capped summits.

But Gemea is not as perfect as it seems. The mysterious Murk has taken hold of the land!

As the hero of Gemea, you can seek out the hidden and whimsical creatures known as Sprites. Use their power to clear the Murk and restore nature’s beauty.

As you explore Gemea, you can barter with friendly locals, discover unique materials to craft with, befriend the adorable wildlife and even create your own working farm.

Yonder offers a world to lose yourself in; a world filled with the wonder of discovery and the spirit of adventure.

Features:

  • A vibrant open world full of things to discover and places to explore.
  • Set your own pace; trail-blaze across the world or settle down for a spot of quiet fishing and farming.
  • Extensive character customization.
  • Master professions like carpenter, chef, tailor and more to help the residents of Gemea.
  • Craft and trade items to solve puzzles as you banish the murk from the island.
  • Befriend and adopt endearing creatures.
  • Build and harvest multiple farms across 8 diverse biomes, ranging from grasslands through dense forest, Caribbean tropics and more.
  • Set in a welcoming world you'll want to visit again and again
  • Multiple creative routes to achieve objectives.
  • A dynamic living world – seasonal changes affect routes, animals migrate, day/night and evolving weather conditions affect the world.
  • Spend time doing what you want: fishing, farming, crafting, questing, picking up rocks. It’s all up to you!
