Forager Update Roadmap

Hey Foragers!

Wow! I have been so incredibly overwhelmed with the support! Thank you so much for playing Forager and for providing feedback, thanks to your great ideas and suggestions I managed to rework the update roadmap for future Forager content.

The main points raised are as follows:

  • Accessibility options are nice but we need to do more/better and secret options should be moved to the ingame config menus

  • Core gameplay is addictive but it ends too soon (~20 hours and then nothing to do anymore)

  • The game's pacing feels wrong (Automation and Droids can make things TOO easy, some Gear items are too cheap while others are too expensive, there is idle downtime way too often while you wait for things to craft or spawn, etc)

  • Combat is not challenging/rewarding

  • Some quality of life changes are needed (inventory sorting, better save backups, removal of sound stacking for Mining Rods, etc)

Our updates from now on will focus on increasing gameplay length and adding replayability! Check it out:

I would like to clarify some extra things that are often asked:
  • The Mac version of the game should be coming soon. I don't have a time estimate for this!

  • The console versions of the game (PS4 and Nintendo Switch) still have no date announcements. I will let you know as soon as I know more!

Thank you so much for your support and Happy Foraging!

Forager v1.0.3 Patch Notes

Hey Foragers!

We are working on hard on 1.1.0, but in the meantime, we have made a quick patch for anyone who is blocked from playing due to a corrupt save file.

1.1.0 will introduce a new system for writing files that will hopefully mitigate save file corruption, even in the event of a PC shutdown. Thank you so much to those who suggested the various system to address this issue!

Bug Fixes/ Stability
  • If a save file is corrupted, the game will now automatically load in a backup, allowing you to play on that file if it is not also corrupted!

  • Corrupted save files will now only display an error if you click on them (which means you can still start the game and play different save files)

  • Corrupted save files will no longer end the game, but will instead take you back to the main menu

More gameplay content is coming soon!

Thank you for your patience and support, and Happy Foraging! :steamhappy:

Originally made for a jam (in which Forager won second place!), over 200,000 players tried and LOVED the prototype! You were all asking for MORE FORAGER, so here it goes! A full 15+ hour experience for everyone on Steam!

After a full year of development, the game on Steam features a TON of new content, systems, and exclusive features!

  • New lands and biomes (Deserts, Graveyards, Snowy Mountains, Volcanoes, and more!)
  • Combat mechanics have been added! (Dungeons, Bosses, Raids, Night time invasions, etc).
  • NPC interaction. Find quirky companions to trade or talk with.
  • Farming mechanics, including caring for animals and the harvesting of all sorts of crops and herbs.
  • Archaeology mechanics. Play as a professional secret-finder as you raid ruins, dig for artifacts and display your findings in your own museum!
  • Alchemy & Rune Inscription mechanics. Allowing you to go all in on the crazy wizard fantasy, destroying big masses of resources with a single bomb or creating trees out of nothing with a powerful spellbook.
  • 16+ new skills to learn and master, in a free-form upgrade system that allows you to customize your experience as you see fit. This brings the number of skills up to 64 total, each unlocking new items, structures or gameplay modifiers!
