Hey wizards,

We've just released a brand new patch to Fictorum! This one was primarily focused on performance and quality of life fixes, but there's a bit of new content in there too.

Major Improvements

New accessories are available and can be unlocked

You can now unlock accessories based on the number of titles you've unlocked. We've also added in a few new ones, specifically one that we probably should've had at release.

The third person camera has been significantly improved

We've received a bunch of feedback on our third person camera and we've worked hard to improve this. It's now faster, adjusts better to the environment, and will do it's darnedest to stay out of the way of your current spell. In addition, we've nixed our adjustable indoor boom and now use indoor transparency tracking—meaning your camera boom length will no longer need to adjust when entering houses.

A new statistics window has been added to the main menu

We wanted to provide you with more about your progress in the game and a tool to assist you with getting some of the more difficult achievements unlocked (like Master Modifier and Master Wizard). So we created this new statistics screen that shows the number of playthroughs, victories, losses, spell usage, and rune usage!
