- Steam achievements!
- Graphics improvements.
- German, Russian and French translation.

Some players asked us for achievements for Steam, so we created 12 achievements synchronized with the secrets within the game. You have a hidden achievement on every screen.

We have improved the color and resolution of the images to make them look more vibrant and contrasted.

Thanks to the entire translation team for their good work. We look forward to working with them further.

- German translation by Marcel Weyers.
- Russian translation by Tolma4 Team.
- French translation by Simon Larguier.

Hostil - Luis - Eteru Studio
Hostil is now also available for Android. The game was designed primarily for the PC, where the experience is more immersive, but we believe that tablets can offer a very enjoyable gaming experience.

PC enhancements:

- We improve the quality of the images.
- We improve the texts.

Features for tablets:

- We enlarge the touch zones, items and buttons.
- We include a hint that tells you where you can click to avoid pixel hunting.
- We compressed the images for less memory load.

You can search Hostil on Google Play and within a few days on the App Store for iPad. You can play on any Android device, but we recommend a large screen.

Many thanks to all our Steam players who have helped us make Hostil, our first game, a better game.

Thanks!

Since we launched Hostil, we've changed a lot of things thanks to our players' comments. We now release version 1.04, which brings together all these changes since version 1.0.

- Elimination of deaths for a more narrative and less "trial and error" experience.
- Elimination of excessive conditions for a more fluid interaction.
- Added clues in the most complicated puzzles.
- Added secrets for greater rejugability.
- Improvements of texts in English and Spanish.
- Fixing of bugs.

We're not finished yet. We continue to work to improve Hostil and make this little adventure a better game and experience. Thank you very much.

· Improved interactions.

We have removed a lot of required conditions in order to achieve a freer and smoother playing experience. For example, you no longer need the protagonist to see broken glass to be able to take a tube and break them, now you can take the tube directly.

· Removal of deaths.

We have also decided to completely removed the deaths, as they could be too frustrating for not being common in this type of genre and not being clear on what conditions they occurred.

· Added a "Story Mode" without deaths.
· Original game renamed to "Survival Mode".
· Added hints at the first musical puzzle.
· Volume control.
· Linux support.

About the mechanics of death:

This idea was intended to add some danger to the exploration and to be consistent with the hostile theme. It was also to add tragic endings that would make the true end more satisfying. To reduce frustration, we add a small penalty for each death, just restart the screen. We also marked each death experienced with an indicator to avoid falling into the same trap twice.

Due to the type of game, it is difficult to clearly alert the player to each death, so many times this mechanics becomes trial and error, which can end up being frustrating. So we've added a deathless mode for players who prefer to experience the story in a more relaxed way.

Thank you for your comments, we will continue to improve the game as much as we can.
