Patch Notes - Update #2

We're back with a second set of patch notes!

As mentioned in our last update, we're looking to better the experience for our players and for this update we're hoping to help out those who are struggling a little with the middle levels, as well as a few other little alterations to the back-end.

What's Changing
Levels
We've found a lot of players are managing to handle the simple running, jumping, shooting platforms, and the laser walls all pretty well once they get some practice, but the switches which move platforms into position are causing a number of headaches. We've returned to levels 3a all the way to 4d and reduced the number of both switches and lasers to help alleviate some of those overwhelming sections. Veterans won't be impacted by this, but newer players will hopefully have a better time of it.

Likewise, the area 5 levels (5a, 5b, 5c and 5d) have received some further adjustments to their layout where we didn't quite hit the mark the last time out. We're striving to provide a good set of main levels, so please let us know how you go with them, and if you have any issues at all.

Bug Fixes
  • Movement no longer tied to Framerate
    This was a fix the speedrunners were really after. An oversight on our behalf meant a few incredibly low times were set.
  • Nets added to catch you
    A fine-tooth comb ran through all of the levels catching any holes we might have missed, fingers crossed that's all of them.
  • Occlusion Culling Fixes
    We had a couple of reports of some Occlusion Culling issues, this should help the game run just that tiny bit better (likely a frame or 2 in later levels on older machines).
  • Restarting Level is more consistent
    If you're prone to spamming the restart level button, it now handles it properly as 1 restart instead of multiple.

We've updated our privacy policy
Yes, even we've done it. Due to the changes to the GDPR and that we collect analytics based on your playing behaviours (mainly level times and number of playthroughs) we've added in a "Data Privacy" opt-out selection in the Options menu. If you prefer that we don't collect any of this information, feel free to make use of this feature. Please note that selecting the option will open up a webpage in your browser though so be aware if you use a controller.

If there are any issues or bugs, or general little annoyances you've found, send an email directly to us at wreckedangle@outlook.com.au with the subject line "NovaFlowBug", or put a comment in below.

Happy Running!

Post-Launch Update

Welcome to our first Post-Launch Update notes!

The game so far has been met with extremely positive feedback, and it has been awesome to hear how much everyone has been enjoying playing the game. There are a few small changes to (hopefully) make your playing experience with Nova Flow that bit better.

What's Changing
Levels
Following feedback from the community levels 4d, 5a, 5b, 5c and 5d have received some slight changes to their layout. They have all maintained their theme and identity, however some of those unnecessarily frustrating jumps and platforms have been replaced with more negotiable ones. They by no means make the levels cake-walks, but they shouldn't be nearly as bad to complete. Let us know how you go with them!

Bugs
  • No More Magic Carpet
    Removed Frame-Perfect bug where you could fly...Seriously...
  • Level Times Show Properly
    Fixed issue where your set time wasn't always displaying correctly on the time screen.
  • Prevented Level Restart Glitch
    Removed ability to get insanely low times through a glitch/skip
  • Playing Falling Forever
    So it seems we left some holes in some levels, hopefully this time we've fixed them all.

Shout out to those who sent us emails to let us know about various bugs/issues with the game. Once again, we'll be doing our best to bundle together as many little changes and tweaks as we can to push out over the next while.

By all means let us know if there are any issues or bugs, or general little annoyances you've found by sending an email directly to us at wreckedangle@outlook.com.au with the subject line "NovaFlowBug", or put a comment in below.

Happy Running!

About This Game

A mysterious tower lurks above the skyline, high above the world. As your only mission, you ascend to discover its true meaning. All, before the time runs out.

Nova Flow is a first person, speed running platformer built upon finding a balance in the rhythmic mechanics of the game. Making it from start to finish in the best time possible is your aim; your weapon of manipulation, your instinctive reflexes and a dash of ingenuity are key to obtaining top spot. Nova Flow’s simple movement system is coupled with more complex interactions as you progress. These interactions marry together to give the player a rapid and smooth-flowing experience as you traverse a large variety of levels designed to measure your skills and put you to the test as you attempt to best the rest.

As you jump, run, and shoot your Nova Cannon you'll find additional ways to interact with your surroundings and the challenges that confront you. Laser obstacles, strange switch targets and gates to pass through will put you in a spin as you try to find the fastest way through the game's levels.





Speed, Bounce, and Wall-run your way through the world. As you go, you'll encounter more obstacles and mechanics.



Get creative with your runs, as you tackle the Standard, Random, and Custom modes. Repeat your runs for the best time.



It wouldn't be a speedrunner without leaderboards! Track your best against ours to acheive a medal; Bronze, Silver, Gold, and our coveted Dev times. Compare your times against others too in our online leaderboards!



An intense score accompanies the gameplay. The up-tempo music sets the rhythm as you run and jump through the game.
