Update 1.0.11: PT/BR-Thai Languages, Friendship tracker, Item to help in leaving the Mines!

Hi all!

It took some time but update 1.0.11 is finally here!

A major feature of this update is the addition of two new languages: Portuguese/Brazilian and Thai. Make sure you take a look at the game credits to see the awesome people involved with these translations!

Another notable feature is the addition of an item that will make getting out of the mines quicker and easier.

Finally, some people had requested a way to know in more detail how their relationship with townspeople progresses. Although I believe that such a feature would be detrimental to the game's tone, I nevertheless added it as an option. Who am I to poop on how you want stuff? The game's developer?

More details about those new features are in the patch notes below.

As always, let me know for any bugs/issues. Have fun!

===============================================

PATCH NOTES

ADDITIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS
  • Added Portuguese/Brazilian and Thai Languages.
  • Added new item: Exit Mouse. This one-use item has a chance to appear every few mine floors and will instantly lead you back to the surface. It is removed when you get out of the mines, either by ascending normally or getting knocked out. If you don;t find the mouse on a particular mine floor, don't bother trying again the same day.
  • Added an optional townspeople friendship tracker. The small dots appearing below their friendship/romance meter signify that a friendship event was unlocked. This feature can make or break your experience so before resorting to it, think carefully what kind of gamer you are and why you enjoy playing games. In any case, this feature can be activated/deactivated in the Options menu (it is OFF by default).

BUG FIXES
  • Beefed up boss damage. For all bosses. Enjoy.
  • Pressing Up/Down on the edge of menu lists now wraps selection.
  • Fixed missing items when upgrading your house.
  • Throwing a chick/chicken in water now properly kills it (lol)
  • Various minor fixes.

If you're a fan of farming sims but need something to spice it up, try the grim substance matter of Gleaner Heights out. You may find exactly what you're looking for.”

About This Game



"Today is another typical day in Gleaner Heights. I got up, went to the general store, bought some seeds, planted them. Cooked some spaghetti bolognese, went out to chop wood. Milked my cows, fed them too. Got in my boat, went underwater with my diving suit. Found a cave entrance, fought a giant crab, grabbed some treasure. Got back up, went to the showroom for a drink. I think the hotel owner's daughter is throwing funny glances at me. I shouldn't have gifted her that boot I fished out the other day..."
