Fixes in v1.1.3

Hi!

Here are the improvements and fixes for v1.1.3

  • Improved hotspot detection when using controllers. The correct interact-able objects will now be highlighted when the player stands in front of them (similar to how it was in the demo)

  • Fixed an issue where interact-able objects wouldn't highlight correctly when playing as Chris while using a controller.

Note that only Windows and Linux versions have been updated to v1.1.3, as the Mac version currently has issues that have temporarily forced it to be rolled back to v1.1.0. Read more here

Mac version has been rolled back and is playable

Hi

The Mac version has been rolled back to v1.1.0, and should now be playable. The only thing missing from the newer version is gamepad support (which was designed for Windows + Xbox 360 controller anyway so there should be no difference.)

A fix for the latest Mac version is being worked on and will be up soon, but until then it is safe to proceed with version 1.1.0 (labelled v1.1 in-game)
