Patch Notes: Fixes, Retroactive Achievements, and more Optimization

Patch Notes - Version 1.2018.03.22

Hey folks! Not a whole lot to report, except we're hard at work on those console ports. We've applied a big set of optimizations from our console porting to the Steam release. Those of you who suffered from the broken achievements bug should get retroactive unlocks now when you launch the game again. And as always, we've fixed a whole bunch of bugs.

(Update: it's been reported that the retroactive achievements aren't working for everybody - please sit tight! We're working on it)

Changes
  • Improved graphics performance ... again!
  • Journal entries count on pause/overview page now totals per level, not per world
  • Lava geysers are now deadly to players & breakable objects
  • Players that have been offscreen for more than a few seconds will respawn near other players
  • Added Final Masters of the music (we thought it sounded great before, but now it's better)

Fixes
  • Achievements that failed to unlock in a previous version will now unlock retroactively
  • Fishbag will no longer show a "Use Elevator" prompt, and properly displays "Fish for Fossils"
  • Player offscreen indicators display the correct player number
  • Big Fossils now fit under support beams as well
  • Fossils shouldn't accidentally turn on their sides
  • Giant Fossils in final level shouldn't respawn after completing the game anymore
  • Resolved flickering shadows in Abyss
  • Small fossil schematic slab activation effect fixes
  • Various colliders & static objects that should have been interactive
  • Abyss 23 backer fossil labels shouldn't all read "Pikeleosteus"
  • Completion star pop up on Map screen
  • Mushrooms were preventing elevator from closing in some cases, and won't spawn near elevator anymore
  • Increased big fossil droprate in most levels
  • Fossils will always flash when connected to a schematic or each other
  • Restored missing line renderers in several levels
  • Lab ladder collider is triangular, not rectangular
  • Fixed an error where partial completion of the tutorial + save would result in an unplayable save state
  • In rare cases music would stop playing, fixed.
  • Mushrooms will die when exploded
  • Player offscreen indicators will not stay on screen during end game credits
  • Fixed stuttery camera in Abyss & Final level unlock cutscenes

Events: EGLX and GDC


Thanks to everybody who came to see us at EGLX 2018 a few weeks ago. We're also at GDC this week, so if you see us, say hi!

“Fossil Hunters' casual co-op is perfect for parties”
Destructoid

“Watching the trailer for Fossil Hunters made me squeal a little with joy.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Fossil Hunters is a fantastic fit for anyone fond of casual games. It’s as easy on the eyes as it is on the mind. With plenty of playability and a surprisingly low price tag of $14.99, I recommend this game to anyone looking for something to relax with.”
8/10 – Backlog Critic

About This Game

Embark on a casual adventure deep underground in search of mysterious artifacts, hidden treasures and most of all, fossils!

Key Features

  • Over 30 hand-crafted levels
  • Play as one of 4 unique fossil hunters
  • Secret items and treasure
  • Local Multiplayer

Modular Fossil System

Find Fossil Blocks by digging through underground levels and connect them together to create a complete skeleton.

Different fossils can be found depending on the kind of dirt and the environment you are digging in. Using rare pieces or making huge skeletons can result in more valuable creations, but you choose how many pieces to assemble and in what order.


The story so far...

You’ve been selected to join an elite team of Fossil Hunters as they set out on a mysterious expedition, but when you arrive at the Digsite it looks abandoned!




You find an old notebook and some torn pages of research notes, could they lead to some answers about what happened here?

Explore spectacular underground environments

Complete specific Fossil Schematics to further the path of science and progress deeper into the caves, where you'll encounter new creatures, dangers, and the secrets of the researchers who came before you...

Dig with your friends

Science is always easier when you’re part of a team… isn’t it? Up to 4 players can explore the mysterious depths together, but cooperation is not guaranteed! Will you help your fellow fossil hunters to create spectacular skeletons? Or will you compete with them and claim glory for yourself?
