Hello! The Holidays are over, so the Winter Edition is now gone (hope you had the chance to play it) and we’re back to the good old Paper’s Cut Edition. ːsteamhappyː ːsteamhappyː

It’s been almost a year since the original launch of Flat Kingdom, and the game has improved a lot and received new updates even to this day.

We’re constantly working on improving the game, fixing bugs, adding new features and keeping the game stable, balanced and fun.

We’ve got some plans for the next update, but now we want to ask you: what would you like to see? maybe there’s a bug that we never found? a feature you would like to see? an area that was maybe a little too difficult or too easy for your taste? a slow or boring part that you did no like? we’re open to all kinds of suggestions!

Hi folks!

we have only a couple days until Paper's Cut Edition goes public! So after several successful tests with some fans and friends during the past weekend, we decided it's a good time to let you try it out! we invite you all to take part in the Flat Kingdom Paper's Cut Edition closed beta stage. It will last only a few days, and your feedback about it will be really valuable for us!



Will explain you how to access the update:

The most important point we are testing with this closed beta stage is that the old saves don't get lost/overwritten with the new 1.0.3 update, because Fat Panda found the way to keep using them after the update and continue playing your savegame without the need to start all over!

So to test this is working well without taking any risk, first thing I recommend you is to backup your savegames, they are located under: C:/users/youruser/AppData/LocalLow/Fat Panda.

Once you have a copy of your saves in a safe place, go to your Steam Library, select Flat Kingdom and go to Properties in the contextual menu of the game, then go to the Betas tab and finally activate it using the password "PapersCut2016".

That's all, at this point the game should be updating to 1.0.3 and you should be able to continue playing from your latest savepoint (if you've already beaten the tutorial in previous versions), or start over from the very beginning of the game and enjoy all the new cutscenes and tutorial we've added.

Please contact us at support@gamesstarter.com or comment here if you have any issue so we can address it as soon as possible (in that case please specify your OS, gamepad/keyboard model, etc).

This update is really important to us, as we want to address some key issues with the game (you can find the full list below). We hope you like it, and if you find we did a good job, please consider reviewing the game on Steam. That will help us to be more relevant among the myriad of platformers that are on Steam, causing other players to find Flat Kingdom, especially during the upcoming weeks that's the Steam Summer Sale.

Paper's Cut Edition / V1.0.3 CHANGELOG:

### Added
  • New and improved animations for expressions and special moves of Flat (i.e. stomp).
  • Flat is now more agile, specially when jumping and gliding (faster stomping/super stomping, he can jump even when he’s trapped in a corner, Glide doesn't get interrupted when Flat collides with a wall).
  • Added full localization to Russian and German.
  • New intro-tutorial sequences explaining in more detail about Flat past and each character's role.
  • Improved combat tutorial, more progressive and clear.
  • New and improved FX sounds (run, steps, mischievous plant, switching shapes, gameover, steps).
  • Added Logitech F310 gamepad support.
  • We added signals indicating deathly pits.
  • The game displays the number of collected coins on the upper right corner of the screen when Flat is close to a merchant.
  • Added gamepad and keyboard button/key remapping option.
  • We added a combat guide in the UI that often reminds you the relationships between the shapes and which one beats the other (this hint can be disabled at your choice).
  • Now you can check in the world map how many scrolls are left in each world, this will be a great help for those of you trying to get to 100%!

### Changed
  • New character design for Flat, adding brand new switching shape effects.
  • Camera follows Flat at the same speed when running.
  • Selecting the Continue option from the main menu now spawns you on the last checkpoint you activated (within a level) instead of the world map.
  • Some enemies designs have been improved: Roundowls, stonesnails and grumpeels.

### Fixed
  • Fixed small bugs in bosses: Quetzal, Fenrir, Kraken.

Thanks a lot for your support.

Flat Kingdom Paper's Cut Edition - JesusFabre
Hi everybody,

It’s been a while since the last update, but that only means that the upcoming 1.0.3 version of Flat Kingdom will contain quite a lot of improvements and fixes, so many that we decided to rebrand the whole game as Paper’s Cut Edition, due to launch on next 22nd of June. We collected the feedback from players and industry professionals and did our best to come up with as many improvements as we could add during the last month and a half. That’s a tight schedule, especially when you compare it to the 27 months of development time behind of the whole project, Fat Panda Games has been dedicated to improve all the aspects in the game, from narrative to visuals, gameplay, some enemies’ design, we’ve localised the game to Russian and German (thanks to Evgenia Tarasova and Marcel Weyers) and even improved several sounds and added new ones (thanks to Yoho Arsenal).



The most relevant and visible change in this update relies on the main character of the game. We know it’s not normal to redesign main characters, but after talking to players and game developers from our community, we discovered that Flat needed an evolution to improve its consistency and personality into one that fits better with the narrative context and aesthetics of Flat Kingdom. Now we really feel this is the Flat that really belongs to our world. Hope you like it too. We’ll publish an article during the upcoming weeks with an analysis about the whole creative process behind this unusual, but necessary, change.





1.0.3 CHANGELOG:

### Added
  • New and improved animations for expressions and special moves of Flat (i.e. stomp).
  • Flat is now more agile, specially when jumping and gliding (faster stomping/super stomping, he can jump even when he’s trapped in a corner, Glide doesn't get interrupted when Flat collides with a wall).
  • Added full localization to Russian and German.
  • New intro-tutorial sequences explaining in more detail about Flat past and each character's role.
  • Improved combat tutorial, more progressive and clear.
  • New and improved FX sounds (run, steps, mischievous plant, switching shapes, gameover, steps).
  • Added Logitech F310 gamepad support.
  • We added signals indicating deathly pits.
  • The game displays the number of collected coins on the upper right corner of the screen when Flat is close to a merchant.
  • Added gamepad and keyboard button/key remapping option.

### Fixed

DRAWBACKS AND REWARDS/ COMPENSATION FOR ALL PRE-1.0.3 PLAYERS.

UPDATE.
We have managed to keep your old saves, so after updating you will be able to continue playing from the point you were at before. The only requirement you need to keep playing your old save is to have finished the tutorial in the previous versions of the game. Nevertheless we recommend you to start over in order to enjoy all the new cutscenes and the new tutorial we've added in Paper's Cut Edition.

OLD POST
Sadly not all the consequences from updating to 1.0.3 will be good. We’ve been doing some very significant changes to the game that have impacted on the savegame format, meaning that the already stored savegames from previous versions of the game won’t be compatible with 1.0.3 and this update will overwrite the save game files. We have been researching possible ways to convert those saves to the new version without success for now, this is a very complex task that will keep working on during the week we have until release. Cannot guarantee anything else than our best effort to keep/convert your saves (know that in any case your Steam achievements won’t be affected by the update). To compensate this damage, we’re going to giveaway a free game and a DLC code (includes the artbook and soundtrack) to each of you who already have Flat Kingdom and also have some progress in the game. If you are one of the affected players, please register on our mailing list and we’ll get in touch with you through email and Steam to verify your purchase and also send you the codes.

Thanks for your understanding and support so far to Flat Kingdom!



Best Regards,
Fat Panda Games and Games Starter.

PS: If you are one of the few players who is very advanced in the game and want to get your 100% before the 1.0.3 update comes up. Talk to us and we’ll give you a hand, write to support@gamesstarter.com.

Hi everyone,
based on your super valuable feedback, in this new update we have tweaked several things related to the game design. The most common report was that the game could be a little too hard or frustrating (especially when fighting bosses) so we tweaked it to make the fights more fair.

For those of you who enjoyed the original challenge, we kept it on Hard Mode. Now you can play on that difficulty from the beginning without the need to unlock it, so give it a try if you’re feeling brave!

Here’s the complete change log:

## [1.0.2] - 2016-04-15
### Improved
  • The first boss weakness is now more evident.
  • Improved scenery for some worlds.
  • Flat is now much faster when underwater.
  • Flat can now damage enemies and collect stuff during his invincibility frames.

### Added
  • Life meters for bosses.
  • 11 new checkpoints scattered all over the game.

### Changed
  • Boss fights are now more fair. They expose their weakness more often, so should not be so hard anymore.
  • The objective in the norns boss fight now is clearer on Easy and Normal modes.
  • Pushable objects now all have the same texture (to make clearer what you can push and what you can’t)
  • Hard mode is now unlocked from the beginning (for those who enjoy the challenge)
  • Beating the game on Normal or Hard also unlocks the achievements for lower difficulties.

### Fixed
  • Shapeshifter achievement fixed (This time is for real).
  • Enemy collisions are improved, they’re more fair now.
  • Hank boss fight have improved projectile detection.
  • Hank boss fight has now a better death cinematic.
  • Enemies can’t push Flat around that easily anymore.
  • Some enemy attacks now are shorter.
  • Most blind jumps and leaps of faith are fixed.
