AVWW Post-Release 1.046 “Release Candidate 1 ” Released!

This one is very close to our final 1.1 official build (after which we’ll start working on the betas for 1.2, so never fear). 

Along with some fixes and tweaks, this version also includes a new music track, 99 new room templates, and a new semi-secret miniboss.  Whew!

Mainly we are looking to see if there are any other critical issues that need to be taken care of prior to 1.1, and that’s pretty much it until Monday.  Then we’re back onto new spells and missions and such, which we’re excited to get back to.

Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the
in-game updater itself, if you already have 0.500 or later. When you
launch the game, you’ll see the notice of the update having been found
if you’re connected to the Internet at the time. If you don’t have 0.500 or later, you can download that here.

AVWW Post-Release 1.045 “Pre-Official Polish Round 5” Released!

This one is our eighth solely-polish release prior to the next official version, which will be coming out midday tomorrow and dubbed 1.1.  There’s at least one more release coming tonight, and possibly two (only two if we break something, though).

This one is smaller in terms of the volume of fixes, but it has some really important ones including several core changes that fix multiple bugs that various people were experiencing. 

The reason we’re doing such frequent releases the last few days is that we want each change to get the maximum amount of time in the hands of players to make sure that we’re hopefully not breaking something right before going into a major release.

Enjoy!

A Valley Without Wind Selected For IndieCade E3 Showcase

We’re excited to share that A Valley Without Wind has been selected to be a part of the IndieCade Showcase at E3 next week. A really pleasant surprise, as it’s something we didn’t even consider as a possibility when we submitted the game to the festival earlier this year.

Along with AVWW, 19 other excellent indies will be on display including The Binding of Isaac, J.S. Joust, Prom Week, and a bunch of games I’m just now discovering and look forward to checking out.

The booth will be located in the Concourse Foyer at the Los Angeles Convention Center (level 1 in the West Hall entrance). I’ll be hanging around there all three days (June 5-7), so for those attending feel free to stop by for a chat, to check out the game, or both!

Check back next week, as we have some good stuff in store with the event coinciding with Valley’s official 1.1 release.

AVWW Post-Release 1.044 “Pre-Official Polish Round 4” Released!

This one is our sixth solely-polish release prior to the next official version, which will be coming out midday tomorrow and dubbed 1.1.  Lots and lots of balance tweaks and bugfixes in here, and more is planned for 2-3 more releases throughout today.

This one has a few standout changes, in particular:

– Freefall mission balance progression is now what we consider “final, pending feedback from you.”  So please, if it seems off then let us know.

– Fixed several things related to small entities not being able to fire certain spells properly, or certain spells sometimes passing through some objects, etc.

– Lava Escape missions now scale up as you complete more of them, but start much easier than they did before, so you can ease into them now.

– Fixed several seeding logic things which also improved performance.  Fingers crossed this didn’t break anything else.

Enjoy!
