Vidar Update: Caught In Your Web – Razbury Games DevBlog (4/3/17)

Hi friends!

How exciting, it’s our first huge content patch since the Early Access launch! I just wrapped up playing through the entire game on this recent patch, and I gotta say, the Dark Cave is feeling full now. I have no doubt that your quest journal will be loaded with plenty of quests to do here now, no matter who dies!

And that quest journal has a new and sexy UI! With all of that said, let’s get into some patch notes <3

Dean is the head of Razbury Games, developer of Vidar, an RPG Puzzler Where Everyone Dies. Play it on Steam, and keep in touch with twitter.

Alpha 0.8.1.0

General

  • A new menu interface has been added
  • Inventory has been reenabled in town; items that have a cave-specific effect cannot be used while in town
  • A directory has been added to the journal. Use this to review the faces, sprites, and bios of each person in town whom you have met. The directory also keeps track of who is alive and dead. Villagers will not be shown in the directory until you meet them, and the directory is not available until and unless you get the journal.
  • Fonts have been adjusted throughout
  • Fixed a crash at the ending if Piri, Barnabas and Cecilia are dead AND Borbalo or Bernadett are alive
