We’re crossing the battlefield, cadets!
Beta 0.20.2 is ready for you doods to bug test the hell out of. Thanks for your patience and awesomeness as we’ve worked through these last few updates to get the bugs with Vickie’s new content sorted out. At this point, Vickie’s finale is looking very close to where we’d like it to be, and we’re just one final march away from wrapping up her stable release.
In addition to adding almost all of the voice acting, we targeted a major issue with the Achievements log that interfered with loading Story Data. Now that this is resolved, fewer of you should have issues starting a game only to find that the house is…whoops, empty!
We tweaked and added a number of text hints in older content to hopefully help you doods stay on track and not get “stuck” as easily while exploring the party. Based on ongoing feedback we’ve also decided to remove in-game advertising from the game world (TVs, billboards, etc.).
We’ve started to integrate the in-game options into the title screen, so players can control settings without having to be in-game. The UI for this isn’t fully functional yet, but we’re laying down the framework. We’ve improved UI alignment for Ultra Wide monitors, too.
There’s also a sweet new Achievement called “The Magic Number” for all of our completionist partiers to work toward.
We know you guys are looking forward to the stable release for Vickie’s ending, and we are hyped to share it with you. Once that’s done, we have a roadmap of cool shit leading up to House Party’s release from Early Access. We can’t thank you dudes enough for all of the support and testing feedback you’ve given us throughout our development journey.
Enjoy the Vickie content and check out the patch notes below.
