BIG FINAL CONTENT UPDATE – 1/23/19

In celebration of the Resident Evil 2 release (joy!) we are launching our Big Final Content Update for GARDEN VARIETY BODY HORROR today. As in right now. This very minute!

OVERVIEW
In the update we added a whole toolshed of strange new items to unlock for New Game+ that completely break or change the game in interesting ways. There's also a 3rd unlockable mode that is quite frankly, my new favorite way to play. We also fixed a bunch of bugs, balanced some things, and added some new achievements!

Spoilers below.

NEW CONTENT:
  • NEW GAME+ TOOLSHED – brand-spanking new unlockable game-breaking items
  • SURVIVOR MODE – first person survival mode, fewer items, way more enemies
  • New side-path added to make world traversal a little easier
  • Seaquarium added to Main Game progression
  • Rank screen now appears on game complete

BALANCE / TUNING:
  • New ways to unlock various weapons in all game modes
  • Certain AI made smarter, deadlier, and more efficient
  • Gardener fight made slightly more melee friendly
  • Additional puzzle solutions added in NG+
  • Placed a few more small hints

BUG FIXIN':
  • Fixed a bug blocking the “all fuses” achievement
  • Fixed a bug blocking the “all safes” achievement
  • Silver Chicken is now recognized by its associated puzzle
  • Fixed a bug that forced game completion 16,378 times in rapid succession before promptly crashing. It was a wild ride.

That being said there are still a few bugs that we are aware of:
  • Classic mode achievement will not unlock automatically if you have already beaten it (will fix later this week so that it double checks at the Main Menu - you will NOT need to play through Classic Mode again to unlock it)
  • In very rare cases, leaving the zone while the forge is running and before the chicken mold is complete can soft lock the game. We don't have an easy fix yet to this problem yet. To avoid it simply wait for it cool down before entering a new zone.
  • Ending has a popup saying "Prototype Gun Unlocked!" We don't know why and it's not true. Please ignore.

As always, if you run into any problems please let us know!

Cheers,

Andrew and Dylan

Investigate a fog filled estate, solve puzzles, fight horrific monsters, and enjoy the relaxing sounds of bad Japanese dub. (English subtitles included)

Back of CD case reads:

HANK MAKER is separated from his partner and hopelessly alone while on call to a foggy island. He must now shovel his way through an existential crisis of guts, gore, and gardening. What other nightmares await our idiot cop from disc 1?
