Fran Bow - Killmonday
Hello dear friends!

It’s Isak and Natalia here :)

We are happy to announce our upcoming video game, a mysterious interactive story from a child’s perspective "Little Misfortune"

Little Misfortune is an interactive story, focused on exploration and characters, both sweet and dark, where your choices have consequences.

Starring Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez, an imaginative 8-year-old, who seeks the prize of Eternal Happiness, as a gift to her Mommy. Led by her new friend, Mr. Voice, they venture into the woods, where mysteries are unraveled and a little bit of bad luck unfolds.

It also shares the universe of Fran Bow!

The next deadline we have for you is November 2018. Then we will be sharing an in-game gameplay trailer and some more information about release and how the process of development is coming along.

We can’t wait for the day of release, which hopefully is early /middle 2019, and of course, we really are loving the process of making this game. We have laughed, cried and gotten so much stronger as a company while developing this game. We have been learning new techniques of communication and creation which allow us to understand way better our own reality, and that makes us better at being creatives!
We needed to make this announcement also because we need the emotional support, you guys! We are emotional beans :3

See you soon!

Love you,

Isak and Natalia.

Hello dear adventurers!

We have released a quick update to fix the startup problem that many experienced with a recent steam client update and it should be solved now!

We have also taken away the beta branches since now you can make minor adjustments yourself in the options.ini file in case you are having troubles with the game and we will provide a guide on how to do that.

In case you are still unable to open the game by various reasons, make sure you are not in a beta branch!

To make changes in how the game starts, you can now try different methods easily in the options.ini file that lives in the game folder!

How to find the options file:
1. Right click Fran Bow in your library and choose properties
2. Go to LOCAL FILES and click BROWSE LOCAL FILES
3. Find the file called "options.ini" and open it
4. Follow the intructions mentioned there!

Since we had to revert to an older version of steam api, Fran Bow might "crash" when you exit the game but this won't affect anything so don't worry :)

Hello awesome adventurers!

We have been trying out a beta patch that helps to get rid of the biggest issues in Fran Bow.
We got great feedback from the players who tried the patch so we decided to make it available for everyone.

Fixes done:

* Initial loading is a lot faster, graphics are only loaded when needed.
* More compatible to older machines and graphic cards. White boxes should dissapear with this update.
*NOTE: If you are experiencing a slow gameplay, go to "Options and choose Shaders OFF.


Have a great day and we hope you can enjoy Fran Bow now! <3
Best whishes,

Fran Bow [official site] made me smile more than any other game I’ve played this year.That might come as a surprise if all you’ve seen of the game is a couple of screenshots feauring gore and dead kids. Fran Bow opens with a gory murder scene and then traps its young protagonist in a creepy institution for (criminally?) insane children. But that initial setting and the dark tone are just a small slice of a story that spans worlds and perfectly captures the beautiful, delightful nonsense of Alice’s Adventures, an inspiration that is imprinted on the game.

Extending Alice’s curiosity to pitch black MORBID curiosity leads to an intelligent, melancholy and eventually hopeful journey toward an acceptance and understanding of death.>

Hello, mysterious adventurers!

You might have noticed two updates on Fran Bow after the release day, and now we will tell you what's going on!

So this post-release patch has fixed these issues:

* A ton of Minor glitches fixed
* A crash found in chapter 1 and another in chapter 3
* Missing text in the bar in chapter 3
* Sound fixes

If you are experiencing the Loading screen error, that it won't progress after a long long time, we are still screaming at the computers on that. However, you can try this:

If your computer has two graphic cards you can switch between, try the other one! This has solved it for a some people. We don't have the opportunity to test this ourselves unfortunately.

If you see a lot of white textures / boxes, switching to your other graphic card will solve this too! Especially if you are using INTEL CHIPSET CARDS!

You can also try right-clicking on Fran Bow in your library, selecting properties and then in the SET LAUNCH OPTIONS try one of these:

-intel or -vanillagfx or -software

These can aid you too!

Hope some of these tricks can help you experience the Fran Bow journey! Thank you all for the nice words! We are doing our best to be here for you all!

Additional note!
"so for anyone with an nvidia driver; they can open their nvidia configuration panel, go to "manage 3d settings" and choose "High Performance Integrated Graphics" could help with loading screen too!

Best regards,
Natalia & Isak
