New patch available (Version 1.31) Fixes and new balance for the Professor

Dear investigators,
We have uploaded the new version 1.31. In it, we have fixed several bugs, and we have improved the balance of the Professor, as he seemed to be the most problematic character of all five:

Fixes:
  • We have fixed an issue with a text in German appearing on the description of the first level, for players playing in English.

  • We have fixed the issue on which the weapons didn´t work when you dragged them from the inventory of the Storage to the player's inventory.

  • We have fixed the issue that slowed down the inventory of the Strange place when it contained a lot of items.

  • We have fixed a problem with the minimap.

  • We have fixed an issue with several mini-events which didn´t count for the achievements.

  • We have fixed the issue that didn´t let you access to the Secret level when you restarted the Strange place location.

  • Professor: We have increased the damage of the weapons (not the basic one).

  • Professor: We have increased the damage of the mines.

As always, thanks a lot for your support! Please, send us your comments, opinions, ideas... We will be happy to read them!

New patch available (Version 1.3) - Wir sprechen Deutsch

Dear investigators,
We have uploaded the new version 1.3. We have fixed several technical issues and most importantly, now the Mythos speak in German:

News and improvements:
  • We have localized the game to German. Now you can choose that language in the Options.

  • We have lowered the difficulty of the Jungle levels. We heard you all! Now the Wyverns and the Fire lizards are much weaker than before. Please try the jungle levels and tell us if now they are not that ruthless.
Fixes:
  • We have fixed an issue with the parameter "Mind" that could bug the gameplay.

  • We have fixed a conflict between the Fast Travel feature and the Eye of Azathoth.

As always, thanks a lot for your support! Please, send us your comments, opinions, ideas... We will be happy to read them!

About This Game

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is an action rogue-lite with RPG elements. You explore randomly generated levels based in H.P. Lovecraft stories, fighting cultists and all kinds of monsters from the Mythos, improving your weapons and gear, solving puzzles and challenges, and looking for clues and knowledge to defeat the Great Old Ones and the Outer Gods.

LIVE H.P. LOVECRAFT’S STORIES




Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. You will experience first-hand the cosmic horror created by the genius of Providence. Every character will go through an investigation that will take them through different locations, from the creepy old Victorian mansion to the abandoned hospital where forbidden experiments take place or the jungle where lost tribes celebrate forgotten rituals, just to name a few. Levels are randomly generated: it will be a different experience every time you play. Also, they vary depending on the character you’re playing with. Look for items and clues to unlock secrets and new stories!

5 CHARACTERS, 5 WAYS OF FIGHTING THE MYTHOS




You can play as 5 different characters, each with a different playstyle and storyline. A private detective, a witch, a thief, a professor, and even a ghoul—each with different stats, weapons, and combat moves, creating five entirely different gameplay experiences. The Detective offers a balanced playstyle, with average Health and Stamina. The Professor is a specialist in ranged combat, with less Health and a special shield granted by his weapon, the Tillinghast. The Witch does a lot of damage, has teleport abilities and elemental shields of fire and ice, but also a very low Health. The Thief is a specialist in melée combat that takes advantage of its stealth to maximize her damage. The ghoul does a lot of melée damage, has a high Health and regenerates itself, but can’t use medkits at all.

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE GREAT OLD ONES




The truth of the dark horrors that inhabit the universe is unbearable for any human mind. In the end, you can’t win against the Old Ones. Madness or death await you. But maybe you can delay the inevitable… If you face the Great Old Ones without any knowledge about them, you will go mad just by looking at their hideous features. But spread across every level you will find special items with information about the Great Old Ones. The more you know about them, the stronger your mind shall become – but knowledge is not easy to find, and if you are not thorough in your investigation you might get to the end of a storyline without finding everything that is to know. You will have to play with all the characters if you want to find all the information about every Great Old One!

MADNESS AWAITS




Insanity crawls behind every corner for those who face the Mythos. In your investigations, you will face different situations where you have to choose what to do – make the wrong decision and you will start losing your mind. In order to face the Great Old Ones, you need knowledge, and to find it you have to explore – but the more you explore the more events that shake your sanity you will find… Those who go mad under the influence of the Mythos take their own life to escape the eternal terror they are now looking at. Not all hope is lost, though – there are some ways to recover your sanity…
