August 7, 2019 - 1.0.4379
It has been just under a week since we launched and we’ve been delighted to see players beating unbeatable missions, finishing the game and using the magurite system as the overpowered beast it can be. As game makers, watching and hearing your stories of how you have used or abused these systems have truly brought joy into the hectic days we’ve had since launch.
The team here at the Forge has been hard at work tackling the feedback we have gathered from all of you. Today’s update addresses a couple of the big issues most of you have been having with our magic. The biggest change we’ve implemented addresses the stat stacking effects that can be exploited to a ludicrous degree in combat; now, stat modifying effects from can no longer be stacked endlessly. We also added more descriptive text for the modifiers per many players’ request and increased the effectiveness of the healing effect by 20% while also adjusting the Canae’s Grace preset spell to be more effective.
Among the most requested quality-of-life fixes is for the ability to rebind the camera control keys so that keyboards from around the world can be used more comfortably. We offer our humblest apologies for the discomfort our worldwide fans have had to deal with and are pleased to say that the controls can now be rebound in the settings menu.
As always, your feedback is invaluable to us. Our small team is working as hard as we can to address the issues you bring up, and I hope that you will understand that not all issues can be fixed easily. The team is divided up to tackle a few main issues at the moment and the plans for a codex and Steam achievements have been drawn up and are underway while we continue to chip away at the list of fixes.
From all of us here at the Forge, thank you for your support and we wish you all well in Attiras.
