Wuppo - Knuist & Perzik
Here are the Wuppo 1.1.100* Patch notes! BTW, if you're interested in our next project, please join our Discord (we post some teasers there) or follow us on twitter @knuistperzik to stay tuned!

Minimap

The game now features a minimap. Finally.
  • Accesed by pausing the game.
  • Displays the rooms you have visited thus far, divided by area.
  • Displays save buckets, stores, projectors and where you are.
  • Also displays yellow flags to help guide you with finishing your current story objective.
  • Displays some sidequests (not all of them!) with white question marks. I'll be adding a bunch more of these throughout the next update(s).
  • Pause screen also displays the name of the area you are currently in, plus your current story objective.
  • Pause screen features it's own music theme which will start playing after pausing the game for longer than 15 seconds.


Focus for future updates:
  • We want to implement some in-game hints for gathering 100 happiness.
  • Wuppo has gone through quite some (technical) changes in the past months. And even though we continuously test the game as much as we can mentally handle, we're only with 2 people, so I do expect some more glitches to pop up. We're always watching the forums and the Discord, so please do report any bugs you run into. You're saving me a lot of time!

Fixes (1.1.99):
  • Fixed: Boss Run leave & restart buttons don't work properly.
  • Carlo no longer disappears from the Wumhouse after saving and loading the game during the cleaning quest.
  • *For anyone who's got stuck due to the above issue, loading your game will fix it for you. And you will receive 20 smurt as a compensation for the trouble.
  • Fixed: Wumhouse ambience wasn't playing.
  • Fixed: an error that displayed after playing Rami's minigame if you are not connected to the internet.
1.1.100*:
  • Dorst Caffé Store no longer loses an item if you try to buy an item but Murk appears during the transaction.
  • King Blionecan no longer get stuck after the boss fight.
  • A glitch where the story objective didn't update has been fixed.
  • Blafknoft's projectiles now have a highlight, so it's easier to avoid them.
1.1.101*:
    (SPOILER ALERT)
  • If you enter the tunnel without a candle, Denksnavel offers to buy it for you.
  • If you get to the gate at the Sinkhole without a Popohat, Denksnavel offers to buy it for you.
  • Filmstrip credits music has been updated.
  • The game saves automatically after listening to a new Bert Smulder story.
  • Character rotation on slopes animates a bit smoother, and the hiccups have been fixed. Same goes for some of the enemies that walk on slopes.
  • Made slight changes to a room in the Wumgarden just outside the temple on the right side.
  • Time passes even faster when you're relaxing in the bubble bath in the Wumhouse
  • Increased the speed of the CREDIT rising when you've done a couple of Popo City quests.
  • The Popo City Central music fades out right before Uberhenk's cutscene starts.
  • Slightly improved Uberhenks cutscene if you are already inside the CREDIT room as it starts.
  • fixed: Denksnavel now displays his actual colour in your inventory.
  • fixed: Denksnavel now has something to say about Jucho (the sleeping wum on the pillows) in the Wumhouse.
  • fixed: Pressing pause during credits no longer displays the minimap for the Blusser Islands.
Enjoy!

Hi!

You may have noticed that the last version (1.1.92~1.1.93) introduced a very ...nasty glitch where items can get lost after placing them on pedestals and leaving the room. We're very sorry for the inconvenience! It should be fixed in the new version (1.1.95).

To compensate you for the inconvenience, there is a chance that you get 50 smurt and a party mooper depending on whether the game recognizes that your savefile has suffered from the glitch. It will also add back the missing items to your inventory. An additional change has been made to ensure that everyone else can continue their journey as well.



Fixes:
  • Pedestals should now correctly save and load the items again.
  • If the game recognizes that one of the following items were lost due to the glitch (Bucket Hat, Splenk ball, Fnakker helmet, Breevis Toy), they may be added back into your inventory when loading your savefile.
  • Additionally, if the game didn't recognize the glitch in your savefile, Breevis'gate will remain opened once you've opened it the first time. So you can continue your journey.
  • Steam Screenshots are working again.
  • 1.1.96: Fixed a new error that appeared after defeating the boss in the Wum Garden Temple.

If you still have issues related to the glitch, make sure your game is version 1.1.96+ (you can check in the Title Screen or when pausing the game). Then @LARS me in the Discord and I will help you out as soon as I can.

Here are the patch notes for 1.1.92.

Cheers!

Here are the Wuppo 1.1.92 Patch notes! BTW, if you're interested in our next project, please join our Discord (we post some teasers there) or follow us on twitter @knuistperzik to stay tuned!

SPOILER ALERT

Small visual update for the smoothness shader:
  • Smoothness shader no longer has fuzzy edges.
  • Smoothness Shader no longer makes some purple items partly transparent.
  • Smoothness Shader no longer displays purpleish jagged edges around GUI elements.


Speedwum improvements:
I've made a couple of changes to some RNG events in order to improve the flow for Wuppo speedrunners.
  • Popo Train Departure: If you acquire the Popo Chipcard within 25 minutes after starting a new game, the Popo train will reset to depart exactly 45 seconds after picking up the chipcard inside the Wumhouse.
  • Popo City Fishing: Using a good fishing hook within 45 minutes after starting a new game will now have a 100% chance of catching Hendrick's Hat.

Tweaks:
  • Rami's Train minigame now features online highscores.
  • Rami's game will only be available after beating the Dorst miniboss or entering Popo City Central. We noticed some players missed out on Dorst Caffé entirely because they were too busy playing the minigame and unaware that the train had another stop at all.
  • Leaderboards are now available on the Steam Community page as well.

Fixes:
  • Fixed the "application surface" error.
  • Fixed an issue where the game freezes when trying to load an old savefile.
  • Rare bug where players lose an item through the pedestals should be fixed now.
  • Additionally, if the game recognizes that your store artifacts are lost, they will be added into your inventory.
  • You can now upgrade the Ultra Bucket at Bremco's fountain if you missed the first bucket upgrade.

Experiencing issues with this update?
If you experience any issues with this patch, you can revert to the previous version of Wuppo this way:
  1. Right-Click on Wuppo in your Steam library
  2. Click Properties
  3. Click BETAS
  4. Then select the "revert" branch from the drop down menu.

Hope you enjoy!

HEYYYY
We've been busy with our next project, but there's always a little love reserved for Wuppo updates. Here are the 1.1.86 patch notes. (More on the new stuff soon...ish. follow us @knuistperzik or join our Discord to stay tuned!).

Demo:
The (FREE TO PLAY) demo is available again. If you have a hard time deciding whether you want to buy Wuppo, you can try it out for free. If you decide to buy the full version, you can continue where you left of. Having the demo back also means you can get the secret 101th happiness again.

Ported to Gamemaker Studio 2:
Wuppo has been ported to Gamemaker Studio 2, which means much better performance. If you didn't have a stable 60fps before, this may improve your experience.

New separated full screen settings:
You can now choose to play fullscreen letterboxed or fullscreen scaled. Additionally, when you play in windowed mode you can now drag the window.
Note: if you couldn't play the game in fullscreen with the highest smoothness setting, try the new fullscreen setting (scaled) with a low resolution (640 x360). A lower resolution will mean that the animations are less smooth, but with the new fullscreen setting you can still scale up the view to match your screen size.

Wuppo is 60% off on Steam until the 21st of May!

SPOILER WARNING

(Minor) visual updates:
I made some changes to the night shaders at the Wumgarden and the Sinkhole. Some dark areas feature a subtle scenery wobble animation as well.


( Shader change should improve clarity of the scenery at night time; left = old, right = new ) pls ignore that the grass displays behind the house, I just noticed it and I'll fix that soon xD

Tweaks:
  • the levers in Redav Kned's Guesthouse now have red and green colours.
  • Added some torches to the Fnakker Hive so it's easier to see at night.

Fixes:
  • The black screen fullscreen bug has (FINALLY) been fixed.
  • Fixed the bug where you hear all songs at the same time for a second when booting the game.

Enjoy!

  • Fixed an error that started appearing when loading the leaderboards midway through November.

Other:

When Wuppo [official site] begins you are gigantic and barely able to run. That is because your lazy character loved watching television so much that he ate one. As you progress, you learn to run and jump and fight, but most importantly you learn to help the people around you rather than being a jerk. Like Undertale and Chulip, this is a game about good citizenship.

Wuppo - Knuist & Perzik
hello

(Hopefully Google Translate did a good job with the title of this post.) We are releasing the Chinese language very soon!
The Gutenberg project spent a lot of time and effort into translating all the dialogues to Chinese. And Lars spent a long time making the Chinese characters appear crisp and readable everywhere in the game. We really hope you will like it!

If you are a Chinese YouTuber, streamer or press, please contact us (info@knuistperzik.com) or our publisher (marten.buijsse@soedesco.com). We can provide keys to those that are willing to help us push Wuppo in China.

There will also be a couple of updates in the next patch that everyone can look forward to. The coolest update will probably be a small rework of the final boss fight.

Thanks very much to the Gutenberg project for the translation. Thanks to all our lovely Chinese fans for their patience. And thanks to everyone that is following/supporting/playing our game! <3

The patch will presumably release this Saturday.

To our Chinese players: please help us by sharing the news! We will be very thankful!
