1.0.0.11 PATCH NOTES (7/23/2018)

  • Added a zooming feature, bound to the D pad (home and end on PC keyboard)
  • Added an on-screen speedrunner timer, bound to right on the D pad (page down on the PC keyboard).
  • Added more time to each of the speedrunner achievement times (all platforms).
  • Added a quick level restart feature, bound to Y on the controller (R on the PC keyboard).
  • Hopefully fixed the spacing of the timers shown on the "level complete" screen for resolutions greater than 1080p. I say hopefully because I don't own a display greater than 1080p at the moment to definitively test with. But I changed how the on-screen spacing works so that it should scale consistently with the resolution now.
  • Modified level 15 to make it so you can no longer get stuck and need to restart the level.
  • Modified a key section of geometry on level 14 to make it less awkward to get to the box behind the red door.
  • Tweaked how the Completionist achievement is tested for, to eliminate the need to log out and log back in to unlock it after getting the last achievement. (Xbox)
  • Added the ability to use the D pad on the main menu and pause menu, and made it so you can just hold the button down to scroll.
  • Corrected a situation on level 8 where you couldn't use the small box to hit the blue switch on the larger moving box.


The Z Axis: Continuum - 1.0.0.7 Patch Notes (also made on 7/23/2018, from memory)

  • Fixed a glitch which caused the Completionist achievement to unlock prematurely on Xbox One.
  • Added a "look around" feature, bound to the right analog stick (WASD on PC keyboard).
  • Added the ability to use the left and right triggers to rotate the environment on Xbox One and those using a controller on PC.
  • Added the ability to use the left and right bumpers to rotate the environment, but with the directions inverted.
  • Fixed some audio saturation issues on level 13.
  • Tweaked the geometry of level 16 to make a key area less awkward to navigate.
  • Added an extra blue switch to level 19 to make it so you don't have to restart if you mess up a certain part.
  • Tweaked the geometry of level 19 to make it less awkward to maneuver the clone in a key area.
  • Tweaked the geometry of level 17 to make it less awkward to maneuver and rotate by one of the rewind areas.

About This Game

Escape a bizarre world by rotating the universe. Use portals, physics, time, and clones as floors become walls, walls become ceilings, left becomes down, and right becomes up. You manipulate time and space at will, but do you have the mind to solve the warped reality that imprisons you?

Play the 2D puzzle platformer game inspired by Portal which started off as a popular little jam entry and has since blossomed into the 30 level reality-defying monstrosity that it has become. All levels are carefully handcrafted (not randomly generated) to challenge even the most seasoned puzzle platformer fan's understanding of physics, time, and space.

No one escapes the Continuum unscathed.
