Thank you & Update 1.12 is live!

Hi all,

Thank you again so much for your support since Infliction has launched! Your reviews and posts in the forums mean so much to a solo developer like me. :) Please keep them coming!

I arrived home from PAX Australia couple of nights ago, and got straight in to this update. I couldn’t wait to jump in and get this patch done - it’s a big one with a lot of improvements! Thank you so much to the community for being both helpful and patient!

Update 1.12 contains the following fixes and enhancements:
  • Fixed a bug that was causing some memories to not be recognised by the memory system
  • Fixing the above bug also addressed a bug where the find every memory achievement couldn’t be triggered
  • The player can no longer hide under the bed during the baby monitor sequence causing the game to break
  • Removed the ability to pick up and examine objects during interrogation room sequence that would cause the player to become stuck
  • Fixed collision on several objects and walls that would cause the player to get stuck or pass through
  • Fixed a bug that indicated a swipe key should open a door but it does not
  • Fixed a bug that caused some candles to not work in the later part of the game
  • Flashlight no longer needs a double click to turn off at the start of a new area
  • Fixed a bug where hitting crouch and hitting the interact button at the same time would cause the player to become stuck in the inspection system
  • Fixed a bug where hitting the hide button and the interaction at the same time could cause the player to be stuck in the inspection system
  • Fixed a bug where taking a photo and crouching before the photo comes in to view causes the player to get stuck.
  • Fixed examine system so that if the item is off screen, the system will reset the object and exit examine mode. This should work for all situations
  • Added a few missing names to the credits, sorry about that
  • Removed ability for AI to spawn in an unfair location after well sequence
  • Fixed typos in achievements
  • Small incidental graphical fixes across the game (object placement and such)
  • Fixed a bug where the player could pick up a phantom version of the key in the key/camera puzzle section
  • Fixed a bug where a new player would get the continue option however clicking that option would restart the game as it’s looking for a save file that doesn’t exist. It now simply starts a new game.
  • General fixes to interaction with two objects at once
  • Minor optimisation tweaks
  • Added feature: wake-up audio recap cutscenes will only play once per area regardless of kill-count. This is reset when a new game is started. You should only see/hear each one once per playthrough
  • Adjusted: a longer delay on ghost respawn time when using the camera on the ghost

Phew, Again, thanks to the community for actively helping Infliction to improve and grow. And thank you for your patience. Being a one-man team, I tend to work a little slower than a, well… team.

The next update I’m already working on and it will contain a few more fixes as well as quality of life improvements such as skippable cutscenes, New checkpoint spawn locations, New hiding spots, More video options etc. I’ll also be doing a big optimisation pass on the next update so keep an eye out for that.

One more thing:
Upcoming updates will contain fixes to bugs, quality of life improvements, tweaks and optimisation but I also plan to start including new content in some of these updates. They’ll be free updates for everyone that owns Infliction, so keep an eye out! I’ll be keeping the new content a secret to surprise you all, and I’m excited to start working on it soon.

Thanks again, you all rock! If you’d like to support Infliction, please leave a review if you haven't done so already!

Update 1.11 and PAX Australia

Hi all,

Thanks so much for all the positivity and support. Its been overwhelming and heart-warming. All the feedback, both positive and constructive is appreciated.

I am packing my bags to head to PAX but before I leave I wanted to push out the updates I’ve made thus far. Update 1.11 contains the following:

• Invert Y axis will now invert the mouse as well as the gamepad.
• Examining an object with plain text can no longer leave text on screen if the text button and interact button are pressed at the same time
• You can no longer activate the plain text by pressing the plain text button while not holding the object.
• Removed the use of the camera when crawling through vents as it causes clipping issues
• Several minor graphical/asset tweaks (Their place and position in the world, clipping objects or hovering objects)
• Removed the use of the camera during the final ritual cutscene
• Fixed AI: can no longer become stuck upstairs in the hallway riddle area of the game
• Fixed a bug that was preventing some achievements from going ding!

Things I’m working on for the next update are as follows:
• Taking action while performing other actions can cause the player to get stuck (EG: Crouch/interact, camera/interact, Hide/interact) etc.
• General glitches
• Collision improvements
• A few typos
• Further performance optimisation
• Alter hiding mechanics to be more predictable and useful
• Skippable cut scenes on the second instance

I really appreciate your patience. Being a one-man team can be a challenge, but you all have been so amazing and patient with me, it’s much appreciated. I have some big updates planned down the road that incorporate both my own ideas as well as player feedback and I’m excited to see how it all comes together.

As for this week, I’m off to PAX. Wish me luck. If you’re at PAX Australia, please come and say hi. I’ll see you all when I get back.

About This Game

“A horror masterpiece that doesn’t let go” - GameRevolution

“Infliction unrelentingly preys on the player’s nerves and sanity” - CulturedVultures

“This game is a journey directly through the bowels of madness and horror” - EK Gaming

Infliction is an interactive nightmare, a horrific exploration of the darkness that can lurk within the most normal-looking suburban home.

Wander through the remnants of a once-happy family, reading letters and journals, listening to voicemails, and piecing together clues to understand the terrible events that led you here.

However, you are not alone. Something else has remained in this house, a being of infinite grief and rage. While you hunt for clues, it hunts you, waiting for its chance to unleash its anger on you.

Can you survive long enough to find atonement?

You are not alone
A restless AI enemy will be stalking you, and you really don’t want to be caught. Will you hide, or find some way to fight back?

Warped reality
Explore a realistic, interactive suburban house that gets more fractured and twisted the deeper you go.

Piece it together
Read letters, find diaries, and examine the precious mementos of a broken family to understand the terrible events that led you here.

Almost too real
The story is grounded in real-world domestic tragedy, the fears and hurts that we all know: broken hearts, betrayed trust, grief, and loss.

Light and dark
The power of Unreal renders a photorealistic environment with dynamic lights and shadows that can dazzle you or plunge you into darkness.

Choose your challenge
Standard difficulty will occasionally point you in the right direction, but in hard mode you will be on your own.
