Magicmaker - Whoa Constrictor
A minor bugfix patch has been pushed to Steam, and should begin automatically downloading soon. Thanks to our players for helping us find and diagnose these issues.

May 15 2018 - Patch Notes

BUG FIXES:
  • The alchemy menu’s material description now describes effects based off the shape of your first spell slot (laser or projectile)
  • Fixed an oversight that would allow the player get permanently stuck in the tutorial by setting their wand to an enchantment and exiting the game before the tutorial was completed
  • Fixed a graphical issue that would cause the background to flicker on some hardware configurations

Greetings! We've deployed another update to Magicmaker. The detailed changelist can be found below.

Aug 30 2017 - Patch Notes

GAMEPLAY CHANGES:
  • Bosses have been adjusted to make fighting them more challenging and interactive. The most noticeable change is significantly reduced idle times inbetween attacks, and an increases in the damage that some bosses' secondary attacks deal. These changes primarily affect New Game+ difficulty, and less so on the first playthrough.

BUG FIXES:
  • Fixed a bug where the player could escape from the training course without all of the required items
  • Tweaked one of the finale maps so that the portal doesn't clip through the ceiling
  • Fixed an issue where a faint colored box appeared around the forest boss seed core
  • Fixed a freeze caused by lighting wisps on fire
  • Fixed a bug where cauldrons would not spawn in the castle during goblin revolution
  • Fixed a bug where fairy enemies may still appear during goblin revolution in the forest
  • You can no longer pause during the ending sequence
  • Fixed a bug where the background during the final battle would display incorrectly on wide resolutions
  • Fixed a bug where goblin wizards with necrom-nomicon didn't spawn minions
  • Fixed an issue where the quest line in the level portal menu wasn't centering properly
  • Fixed a bug where enemies would not be properly destroyed in the finale
  • Fixed a bug where the player wasn't silenced when they entered certain portals
  • Fixed a bug where activating the boss room of the temple, then going to a shrine and staying there, would result in a bunch of temple boss warning effects going off constantly
  • Fixed a bug where left over vfx from the previous level would show up on the title screen
  • Grammatical fixes on a handful of tooltips

UPDATE AUG 31:
  • Fixed an issue that caused certain bosses to throw projectiles outside of the boss arena, or get stuck in attack animations

Greetings! We've deployed another update to Magicmaker. Read on for the details!

In addition to bugfixes, for the next Magicmaker update we will be looking to adjust the difficulty of bosses in New Game+. We've created a discussion thread for the matter on the forums (LINK) for you to share your thoughts on boss balance, and are looking forward to your feedback!

Now, onto the changelist.

Mar 06 2017 - Patch Notes

GAMEPLAY CHANGES:
  • Increased drop rate of alchemy components (essences and stones)
  • Stones and essences now drop at an even ratio, instead of all alchemy drops having an equal drop rate (causing stones to appear less often)
  • Training dummies now display your damage per second (DPS) after receiving damage
  • Added a stone dummy to the training area. It is knockback immune.
  • Siren's Seafoam projectiles now begin oscillating upwards regardless of the direction they are fired (left vs right)
  • Siren's Seafoam lasers now undulate in a wave pattern instead of being a static shape
  • Adjusted tooltips to clarify their effects on spellpower.
  • Adjusted particle effects on the Pranksgiving Cornucopia artifact
  • Added some more loading screen tips
  • Allowed the player to modify their spells if they die to the final boss
  • Adjusted tutorial text to better explain spellpower and clarify controls

BUG FIXES:
  • Fixed an issue that caused keys to vanish
  • Significantly improved the performance of wind gusts in the Forest Zone
  • Fixed a bug where Crystal Ball-Diamond-Laser spells would only hit once
  • Fixed a bug that caused Trick Bullet-Turret spells to deal less damage than intended
  • Fixed an interaction with Trick Bullet and Diamond that would cause projectiles to double hit an enemy
  • Fixed a bug where very large Diamond Lasers would hit more times than intended on targets very close together
  • Fixed a bug where Crystal Ball-Diamond-Laser spells would repeatedly hit the same target
  • Fixed a bug where the turret robe would occasionally not appear or attack
  • Arrow drops from Quiver spells no longer prevent treasure room portals from opening
  • Fixed several instances of incompletable levels, especially in the forest
  • Fixed a rare bug that would cause floating standing stones in the forest
  • Fixed an issue where fire wisps and salamanders would get stuck in a corner of the desert sandpit trap room
  • Significantly reduced instances of giant snowball enemies vibrating violently in tiny corridors
  • Removed a phantom hitbox on the Desert Boss
  • Fixed several typos. Now there aren't any spelling errors left in the game, as always. Was there ever a spelling error in Magicmaker? It's impossible to say at this point. We're looking into forming a panel of experts to thoroughly investigate rumors of spelling errors in the game, but if we're being totally honest it seems like a wasted effort, seeing as the notion of a spelling mistake in our game is downright absurd. I mean, come on.
