Version 0.1.3.0 of Layers Of The Machine was just released - most changes in this update are a direct result of feedback we got from our players. The changes are mostly meant to make the gameplay smoother and more enjoyable and we plan to continue on this path in the next few updates as well.
CHANGES ========= 1) new ingame map (key m) to make it easier to find the areas where the story will progress - before that, progressing with the story was to much reliant on luck (running into the correct locations).
2) climbing ladders is now easier and more like in other games (sorry to everyone who died, not guns blazing, but instead falling from a badly designed ladder).
3) using an object is now more intuitive: if you see the tooltip, you can use the object. Before that, you had to look directly at the object to use it, which was just a bad idea and very frustrating.
ROADMAP ========= The main feature of the next update will be to add a quest log. Just as with the ingame map, this is meant to make it less frustrating to explore Layer 43 and the Ruins Of Logic specifically.
Version 0.1.2.1 of Layers of the Machine was just released!
BUGFIXES - fixed bug where weapon disappeared if saving while on ladder. - fixed audio bug where dialogs would be skipped if sound volume was set to zero. - fixed bug in storyline, where quest step could be started premature.
FEATURES - ladder climbing made easier (sorry to everyone who hurt themselves while climbing).
