In this release you will notice the following changes to the potions mini-games:
- A potions tutorial
- Hints and Tips updated to offer more guidance
- Colour/Shape coding to make it easier to identify acids and alkalines
- Potion mixing rules improved to encourage experimentation
- An "improvisation" option added for the heat of the moment

We have fixed the following issues raised by the community:
- numerous quit and continue issues in the police station
- some issues with progress stalling if quitting and continuing during key branching moments in the story
- issues where journals sometimes fail to open, close or are missing pages
- an issue where leaving the chemist can result in a grey screen
- an issue with interaction icons not showing up when starting new game immediately after completing the epilogue
- facial animations failing to play in chemist Ch2


If you encounter any issues after the update, please report them in the Support sub forum or on our official Discord server.

We would like to thank you again for your continued support and enjoyment of our game.

We are now working towards releasing another content update v1.3. We will continue to work on any new issues raised by the community.

A message for the community



Dear Salix Community,

It's been a rough ride launching Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey - something we knew might happen from the moment we decided to self-publish. Our ability to polish the game would rely on two things; time and money. We sadly ran out of both.

As a result, our day one release simply wasn’t good enough and for that we are deeply sorry.

Some of you will know there was an issue with save games on our April 5th launch, but we worked hard to resolve the problem and by April 9th it had been fixed. The following week, thanks to our incredible community, we'd fixed the most critical issues reported and resolved several major blockers. We plan to release further regular updates over the coming weeks which will refine potions gameplay, character movement, as well as further developing some of the characters' stories in our world.

We have now released our 200+ page art book and original soundtrack, which is almost two hours’ worth of music spread across 39 tracks by two world class composers Jools Scott (Flanders Remembers St Pauls Cathedral) and Jeff Rona (God of War, Devil May Cry 5). As existing users, you will have access to them both as part of your purchase. We are very proud of the music and artwork in our game and sincerely hope you enjoy them!

We are a narrative adventure with a rich and layered story and a cast of compelling characters through which to experience it. If you’re a lover of narrative, character, and a damn fine mystery and haven’t given us a go - please do. If you tried us and were let down by early technical issues, please give us another chance, we sincerely believe you'll be rewarded.

We’re only a small team, but we are listening and we are fixing. We want this game to be the best it can be and we won’t give up until we get there.

Thank you for reading, and your support.

Jessica Saunders
CEO Salix Games

About This Game

London, 1888. With Whitechapel’s citizens living in the shadow of Jack the Ripper, Arthurian legends take to the streets in a thrilling quest to stop the killer before he strikes again.

Take on the roles of immortal hero Sir Lancelot Du Lac, and cursed sorceress Morgana Le Fey, as you hunt London’s most prolific serial killer. Join forces with Whitechapel local, Mary Jane Kelly, to explore the capital’s underbelly, meeting a diverse cast of characters who fill the streets of the Metropolis with noise and colour.

Explore the sights, sounds, and locations of the Ripper’s London, and immerse yourself in all that the Victorian era had to offer.


KEY FEATURES:
  • A thrilling tale set at the turn of a century, just as London was gripped by the Autumn of Terror.
  • Three playable characters. See London through a different lens as they wrangle their own personal, and physical, demons.
  • Explore historically accurate crime scenes, each based on and including true-to-life reports from the era.
  • A sprawling, branching narrative adventure where in-game decisions impact on each character’s resolution.
  • A wide array of characters to meet, and a plethora of true-to-life locations, each fact-checked by leading experts in the field of Victorian history.
  • An incredible voice cast with actors from Penny Dreadful, Game of Thrones, Black Mirror, and Dragon Age.
  • Developed by Salix Games, a new indie team with AAA experience from the likes of Rocksteady and Lionhead.
  • Plotted by Philip Huxley, writer on Batman: Arkham Knight and Killzone, alongside BAFTA Breakthrough Brit winner, Jessica Saunders..


Crafted by Salix Games, Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey has been meticulously researched to bring the Ripper story to life, all the while shining a light upon previously untold stories. The stellar line up of voice talent includes Penny Dreadful and Tudors actress Perdita Weeks as Lady Morgana Le Fey, Dragon Age and Torchwood star Gareth David-Lloyd as Sir Lancelot Du Lac, and Utopia and Black Mirror actress Alexandra Roach as Mary Kelly, each guiding us on a journey through the twisted streets of Whitechapel. With beautifully rendered graphics that blend 2D and 3D, as well as lovingly composed music and soundscapes, Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey breathes new life into the adventure genre, putting its own mark on this often-misunderstood period of history.
