News August 2019: fixed bugs and new demo 1.1.2

Hi!

This is the first blog we publish since we successfully achieved the funding of Kickstarter.

We want to be as transparent as possible and periodically publish our progress. That is why we will be publishing more information and updates through our social networks, our website and Kickstarter updates.

During the last weeks we have been working on advancing the main development of Lamentum, the main course of the plot and fixing bugs.

We have focused on fixing the bugs that you have sent us through the feedback of the demo. Thank you so much for all the comments and opinions!

With all these bugs fixed we have updated the demo and it is now available on IndieDB.

Fixing these bugs is very important and helps make Lamentum a better game.

We are also preparing a future blog post where we will narrate our experience with the Kickstarter campaign. It was a very intense month and we learned a lot of things that we think could be interesting to share.

Thank you all for helping us!

If you find any bug or have any suggestions, do not hesitate to contact us, it helps us a lot.

List of all the bugs we have fixed:

  • Fixed interface button selection system.
  • Fixed bug related to teleport (I could leave you in an empty area if you leave and quickly enter a site).

The Sightless Wanderer

“One, two, three… All the coins for me! Hee… Hee…”

You can find this NPC in the deepest part of the area known as The Library.

The Sightless Wanderer.gif

This strange character surrounded by candles will ask us for help to recover some coins that, according to him, were stolen.

You can find these coins hidden throughout Grau Hill. But… Will you return them to whoever claims to be their owner?

The coins seem to be very valuable and maybe there is someone else interested in them.

Introducing the Red Queen.

“The Red Queen awaits her blood sacrifice and we should not make her wait”

The Red Queen is one of the important characters you will find in Lamentum.

queenks

His domains are under the area known as the cemetery and it is said that his thirst for blood is only overcome by his hatred of the Lord of the Maggots and his henchmen.

The Red Queen

In Lamentum we have several special NPCs with their own motivations. Partnering with some of them can cause others to consider us enemies … so you should have care in whom you trust.
