Patch v1.0.3 - Additional polish and improvements

* Changed the Keyboard only and Controller experiences so Alex only detects things he's actually looking at. No more eyes in the back of his head. This won't affect keyboard and mouse players.

* Resolved a number of spelling and grammar issues - big thank you to everyone in the community who told us where they found them.

* Resolved a cut-scene where Jake teleported when he shouldn't have

Patch v1.0.2 - Better support for screen resolutions below 1920x1080

In this patch, we have made some changes so the game runs better on 16:9 and 16:10 ratios below the minimum supported resolution of 1920x1080. To be clear, we don't officially support lower resolutions, but we know a lot of people are choosing to play the game at lower resolutions regardless, so we wanted to make the experience better for those players. We still very strongly recommend playing on at least 1280x720. Smaller resolutions will have cropping issues that could be game breaking.

If you do play at a smaller resolution than 1920x1080, the graphics won't be "Pixel Perfect" and in some scenes, the graphics could "jitter", but it's unlikely you'll encounter any game breaking issues.

We may get to a point where we officially support it eventually.

“I wish that there were games like this when I was growing up.”

“The sort of LGBT games we need to see more of.”
Rainbo Press

“The pixel art is simple, yet beautiful, and the soundtrack by Jessica Kelly is as haunting and mysterious as the story that unfolds. It's well worth a play.”
