    Update 8 went live earlier today, with the following additions and fixes to known issues. Included in this is enemies mid and late game with more challenging abilities and harder hitting attacks to match a savvier, more powerful Spicer and company. We’ve updated some spells and skills that needed it as well, and have listed them in the bottom section. We’ll continue to balance as we hear and see is needed to prep the high-level expansion starting areas down the road. *Note that some economy or world-changes such as that will only affect a new game, and not disrupt places you’ve already been to or anything.

    Steam and our patches area available since this morning, and if you’re waiting for GOG we’ll be sending that to them tonight when they get into the office. Our new downloadable builds will be up in ~6 hours.

    Additionally, the long awaited manual update and downloadable version is going to ready today, and we’ll announce when that is up! It will be packaged at GOG as well downloadable from the current Online Manual page.

    I like the following:

    “Re-entering areas through different entrances set you in correct position.”
    Was confusing before so this helps a lot.

    “Economy adjustment for sell prices and merchant purses.”
    Does this mean merchants get emeralds back so can we sell more? Merchants always seem to have no money.

    “When someone is walking toward you to commence dialogue, you cannot pause or quick save.”
    That should solve a lot of problems.

    “Item description update to show stats on top.”
    Nice little change.

    “WPN Prof reaching 9 stars now shows correctly.”
    Hopefully this will fix the menu showing a very long bar.

    I will check later.

    Sweet, thanks for the quick update. You and your wife must be working extremely hard, I’m sure.

    I’m very excited for an expansion. Are we going to see a new landmass with the expansion? Maybe perhaps into one of the areas above the map?

    Thank you, Joe. I was waiting for this one.

    Thanks! Yes, we’re excited to be getting these patches and balance updates out for you all, should be as smooth as ever after this next one!

    The narrator at the beginning/end of the game gives you a clue as to the location of the expansion and the focus of it, but we did also announce it during the Kickstarter. It takes place within the Lachovinian Isles, if you talk to certain characters or know some of the lore of the East from the game you could discern who the potential focus is.

    So it’s a completely new set of areas with lush (warmer) maps, and you’ll have a small ship for some Odyssey-like island hopping. It’s taking the best puzzles and elements from the main game, and from what we’ve heard people liking the most now, and amplifying it for a big fun finale.

    We’ll do an expansion trailer when we get closer to releasing it!

    I have to say that I’m extremely impressive with the way you handle these bugs and fixes. The constant updates with numerous fixes really make this game shine even more. It was a bit rough but right now it’s shaping up to be an hidden gem. Let’s hope more people will eventually play this.

    I’ve created threads about this game on various forums and I keep streaming it. I’m really enjoying it right now and am fairly optimistic about the future. Keep up the marvelous work guys!

    I think I might just start a new game, I believe I’m mid game and the game is quite easy, also I had some weird issues so having a fresh start might be neat.

    “WPN Prof reaching 9 stars now shows correctly.”
    This did fix the weird bar issue.

    The game seems to load faster each patch or maybe I am just more use to it.

    I think it does load faster, though that’s just my subjective feeling.

    Thanks everyone! After patch 9 updates should certainly slow down, and we can get to some community ideas for UI additions and any other odd issue that comes up, though most noteworthy kinks will be gone. Appreciate everyone’s patience!

    @ Derek Teeuwsen

    We’ve been doing this since the first one! They usually are up after we get the GOG ones up, so ~10 hours or so after our patch/Steam. Lately they’ve been going faster, which is I believe due to our internet provider finally replacing the spaghetti that was used as our internet connection lines with actual cables.

    @ mirkobern

    Interesting, they must not have gotten it up on their Monday, usually they have been day-of when we send it before they get in. It should certainly be up tomorrow along with the manual download in the package area, check for it then! We’ll be able to focus into why some Linux users are having issues with the patcher after v.9 is out.

    Do you have an ETA on patch 9?
