Patch 1.0.9 (Build 2688695) (14/04/2016)

NOTE: Due to the GUI being rendered differently to catch the vibrance shader, some users have reported only the GUI being visible and everyhting else being black.

If that's the case, you can temporarily roll back to a previous version by going to Game Properties -> Betas and where it says "Select the beta you would like to opt into" choose "Linux_testing". Don't be frightened by the name, it's OK for Windows.
Everything should be OK now.

  • Fixed a glitch in an event involving Tobias.
  • Changed Bernadette's birthday to not coincide with another person's birthday.
  • Fixed cranberry milkshake item sprite offset.
  • Now holding interact while picking up nightflowers and mushrooms will place them in your backpack properly.
  • Fixed chests opening but not acquiring item when inventory is full.
  • Fixed boat sound playing while diving.
  • Fixed Matilda incorrectly visiting the player's house.
  • Fixed cabbage soup having 0 value.
  • Fixed getting stuck when taking damage during horse dismount.
  • Added a 5-level vibrance screen filter option which boosts color saturation.
  • Added option to return to the surface from the last level's mine ladder. This does not open any permanent shortcuts, it's a 1-way trip.

Update 1.0.8: Expanded dialogue, expanded in-game help & Linux version!

Dear townsfolk of Gleaner Heights,

Update 1.0.8 includes several new features!

Expanded dialogue
So far the dialogue for all NPCs has been enhanced in the following ways:

Day-based: Default seasonal dialogue not affected by the conditions below is now alternating every other day. Subsequent dialogue expansion passes will build upon this foundation for even more variance.

Destination-based: Most NPCs may offer different dialogue according to where they are headed to, especially if their route is a lengthy one.

Location-based: Most NPCs may offer different dialogue according to where they are when you talk to them. This mechanic existed already, but a slight mistake prevented NPCs to maintain their different dialogue if they reached their destination and you changed areas and then returned to talk to them. In any case, now NPCs respond more diversely in more places.

Hour-based: Now many NPCs have different lines according to whether it's early in the morning or late in the night. Well, late in the night for them. I know what you do while others go to sleep, you sinful scallywags.

Also corrected a few dialogue inconsistencies, mainly pertaining to responding to certain game-changing events etc.

Expanded in-game Help
An additional Help section explains even more basic stuff like where to view and customize controls, things you can do with the Interact/Back buttons, quickslots, how to roll, how to toggle permanent running and more.

Linux version
Tested on Ubuntu 17.10 x64 , Ubuntu 16.04 x64 and Ubuntu 14.04.05 x64. Be warned, full screen may be glitchy. Using a compositor may fix the problem. Let me know in the Bugs section and in the meantime I will see into implementing a Borderless Fullscreen mode.


Other Changes
  • Fixed a bug where dead small animals would not disappear entirely and thus keeping other animals near the location of their demise would perpetually affect their mood.
  • Fixed an edge (literally) case with misplaced fences.
  • Now some farm obstacles like logs and weed can be jumped over, as well as not fully developed crops.
  • Altered obstacle detection algorithm to minimize going slightly off-course while bumping on an obstruction, which caused problems eg with picking up crops in a row.
  • Various other minor corrections, additions and adjustments.

That's all! Stay classy, try not to sin too much, and for any new game shenanigans let me know in the Bugs section!

“Those who are willing to sink hours into Gleaner Heights -- either for its agrarian elements, Lynchian plot, or both -- are in for a treat [...] Gleaner Heights has enough content to make it feel like an instant cult classic.”

“Once you've looked under the hood and see that the farm sim is only the surface of the game, you find a surprisingly addicting dark adventure title. 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..."
