Sure Footing v1.0.5 is now live!

Sure Footing v1.0.5 is here!

Hey everyone! So exciting to see so many new players filling up our leaderboards since we were announced just last week in the Yogscast Jingle Jam. Welcome to you all and thanks for joining us here in Cacheville.

So I've been working away on this update for a few weeks now and... man, it got hairy. As mentioned in a recent post this is to get the game ready for porting to consoles as well as generally improving performance. But also adding one or two smaller features and - more importantly - addressing some bugs that have been sitting in the game for far too long that I had a lot of trouble nailing down. Thanks to the folks who have reported their issues. Sometimes nailing down a bug in a procedurally generating game can be a real headache.



Change List
Here's a quick list of some of the bigger ticket items we've addressed in v1.0.5:

  • Smoother Framerate: The framerate has been a little variable after v1.0.3 so I went back and optimised this. This isn't finished. I'm still going to work on this further, but I'm getting more consistent 60+ fps even when testing in-engine. So that's a big step forward.
  • UI Improvements: a lot of small bugs in single-player, multi-player and shop have been resolved. Including issues with trying to buy skins in the which was a real bummer.
  • New Controller UI: As part of the console rewrites we added in an entirely new controller UI system. You should now see new icons for keyboards and Xbox controllers.
  • Running Pace Options: You can now change the running pace in the character select UI. This comes into effect both with normal and quickstart approaches.
  • Lots and lots of bug fixes: Including most notably issues with the welcome signs not appearing when visiting new sectors, as well as issues with the mutators not enabling/disabling correctly.

This isn't the end of our updates. I'm still working away on new content as well as improvements that will see the game be updated a little more frequently in 2019.



Find New Bugs? Please Let Us Know
While I'm feeling much better about this build, bugs can always arise in new places (or those once thought destroyed can resurrect themselves). We're a very small team (I'm the only programmer) so diagnosing where these occur is always a huge help for us.

Review On Steam?
If you've enjoyed the game - or not - please leave a review on our store page. It's a big help in letting people know about the game (as Steam continues to push small indie games like ours further down the recommendation pile). Plus we try to address your concerns if you have any.

Hope you all have a great holiday season and I look forward to bringing more updates to the game throughout 2019.

Keep Running!

The 2018 Yogscast Jingle Jam + New Update



Sure Footing in the Jingle Jam

Hey everyone! The word got out last night that Sure Footing is part of the 2018 Yogscast Jingle Jam and we're proud to support this initiative that donates all of its proceeds to charity. If you're thinking of grabbing the game, then go check it out and if you grabbed the bundle and are now playing, welcome and I hope you enjoy your time with us in Computra.

If you're having a good time and wanna help us out, please go leave us a review on the Steam page. That would be a lot of help! If you have a bug or a cool suggestion, let us know over in the community forums as we're still updating and improving the game over the next year and anything you can push our way really helps!

Speaking of updates...

Sure Footing v1.0.5 Inbound Soon

So first up, sorry that the updates on the PC build have been a little quiet of late. I've actually been working on a couple of bugs raised in the community forums as well as dealing with back-end issues that arose as we started porting the game to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch . I kinda realised that both the bugs raised and the porting overlapped with each other so I've been spending a LOT of time rewriting back-end systems to a) fix bugs and b) allow the game to run more smoothly on both PC and console devkit hardware. This has led to a massive optimisation update that I had hoped to have ready for you in time for the Jingle Jam.

I'm still working away on this over the weekend and into next week. I'm hoping we can push the update w/c 17th December if not sooner. But here are some of the changes you can expect to see in v1.0.5.

  • Smoother framerate: The framerate has been a little variable after v1.0.3 so I went back and optimised this.
  • UI improvements: a bunch of small bugs as well as issues with purchases in the shop have been resolved.
  • Smoother level loading: Not a biggy, I know, but this one was bugging me.
  • New controller UI: As part of the console rewrites we added in an entirely new controller UI system. The first part of that will appear in the new build.
  • Lots and lots of small bug fixes.

It's taken longer than planned, but we're much closer to getting this build out there. As I say I'll update you as soon as I can. In the meantime thanks for playing and I hope you continue to enjoy your time with Pete, Polly and the gang.

Keep Running!
