Stories: The Path of Destinies - Siu Fung (SHG_Phil)
Hello Dear Friends,

It's been 2 years since the last update and for that we apologize. We were busy making Omensight...

But during the production of Omensight, we kept thinking about coming back to Stories, not completely satisfied with the game and wanting to address all the major issues that have been flagged by you, our community, since the game's launch in 2016. We jumped on the opportunity once Omensight was done.

So here it is: Update #4!



The game engine has been updated to Unreal Engine 4.18, improving performances and visuals and that's why we're calling this version Stories: The Path of Destinies Remastered.

Also the following issues have been fixed:
  • Global: Sometimes players can't unlock "Boreas discoverer" achievement
  • Global: Hooking a Shield Raven can increase the Combo meter to a high number
  • Global: If players switch sword right before a locked door, they won't be able to open it
  • Global: In wide resolutions, player can't click on Back or Apply in Options menu
  • Global: It was possible to fall by dashing in corners
  • Global: Perfect Strike text sometimes overlaped with Combo Meter
  • Global: Portrait stay on and dialogues can be missed when using Alt-Tab during dialogues
  • Global: Quitting in tutorial after crafting sword and loading back in did not leave the sword equipped
  • Global: Ravens can sometimes miss their combat Idle animation
  • Global: Subtitles for scripted dialogues could disappear if a banter had started playing just before
  • Global: Using the Grappling Hook on an enemy started a combo
  • Menus: Advanced Graphics Options have been made easier to access
  • Menus: Continue highlight color was different than the others
  • Menus: Option items sometimes weren't saved (without closing the game)
  • Desert: Elevator does not open door when stopped
  • Fleet: Players can fall off the map by dashing back to the platform
  • Fleet: Combat slowmo sometimes continues during following cutscene
  • Fleet: Hero Path - Zenobia can appear in T-Pose inside a ship during the Farfarer cutscene
  • Fleet: Player can be stuck, unable to reach an hookpost on secondary path
  • Forest: Raven can be stuck on a rock ("kicked enemies getting stuck on higher level terrain")
  • Mountains: Some subtitles could be played during the wrong cutscene
  • Nexus: Player was able to leave combat area by kicking an enemy and following up with an attack
  • Nexus: Sometimes characters were invisible after skipping the intro cutscene
  • Nexus: Issues with Russian localization after completing the level
  • Nexus: The player can walk off the airship in Nexus by repeatedly attacking the back side
  • Prison: Eyeballs' cone of vision could go through some walls
  • Prison: Sublevel missing when coming from the first pink door
  • Ruins: Quitting game during the end sequence (or even earlier?) and continuing game makes the wrong sequence play
  • Tutorial: Altar kept its "new" green VFX after player got their first upgrade
  • Tutorial: The mouse icon can be seen on the Counter tutorial pop-up
  • Village: Controls could be lost after countering an attack

Thanks so much for the support! Take care!

Stories: The Path of Destinies

It is apparently a good week to not spend money on games. Not only is The Flame in The Flood still gratis via Humble, but the similarly delicious-looking cartoon action-adventure Stories: The Path of Destinies by Spearhead Games is currently free on Steam. Grab it now, keep it forever and play it a whole bunch of times because this one is built for the long-haul, if you don’t mind a little repetition.

It's hard to believe for us but Omensight, the spiritual successor to Stories, is out in exactly one week, on May 15!!

We are a small independent studio of 15 people and this has truly been a journey of sweat, blood and tears. Making a game is a a big challenge and we keep pushing ourselves to always be better and smarter. However, a bigger challenge is getting people to see, notice and buy the game we put so much effort into. With over 7,000 games released on Steam last year, it's really easy to get lost in the shuffle.

This is why we have started a new contest: Wishlist Quest!



The goal of this quest is to gather as many wishlist additions as possible for Omensight on Steam.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/455820/Omensight/

Each time we reach a new threshold, we unlock a special reward, starting with a free Steam Collector Bundle of Stories: The Path of Destinies at 10,000 wishes (which includes the art book and soundtrack)!

But that's not all! Everyone who participates also earns a ticket for a chance to win one of 100 Steam keys to Omensight!

Please don't forget to mention this to all your family and friends. The more, the merrier!
