New Weekly Release: v0.135!

Hey everyone! We're almost at the end of the road! This week updates the "victory" path with new content and some new areas to explore.

Most likely by the next alpha release or shortly thereafter, the story will be complete--then it will just be going back and fine-tuning things, adding extra side-content, new scenes, new images, tweaking balance, that kind of stuff for a while.

Then it's done! My god, I can hardly imagine it. Hope you're looking forward to it. Thanks for sticking with me this far.

New Release: Not Dead Edition (v0.136)!

Hi everyone, Audrey here!

Nym, our main developer, story writer, artist and practically everything else, has been dealing with some health issues over the last couple of months. We're hoping he's over the worst of it but we're still waiting on some test results and it going to take him time to recover. In the meantime, our updates may be a little more sporadic with less progress being made. That said, we're nearing the end of the story so we're hoping that soon we can concentrate on making the game even better as a whole!

Hey everyone, happy to finally get you a new patron build after having last week off.

Hope you enjoy!

New Release: Version 0.138!

Hey everyone!

Happy to present the latest and greatest in Daughter of Essence technology: version 0.138. Added in a lot more scenes and details for the possible endings to get, but there's still a lot more to go where that came from.

Also finally added in the voice lines we got a while back for Leite, done by the very talented Midnight Datura: https://twitter.com/MidnightDatura Those can be peeped in a couple of different endings as well.

Fixed an issue where Hallie could remain in Mercy’s party after defeating the assassin

New Release: v0.139!

Hi everyone!

As of now, 7 of the 8 possible outcomes are more or less wrapped up, but I had to hold one of them back because it wasn't ready. Fortunately, it's the one least likely to be obtained, so it shouldn't hinder most players.

I was going to just wait until they were all wrapped up and polished, but that kind of polish takes a lot longer than you might think so I figure I might as well let some of you experience the satisfaction of concluding your legacy at long last.

The best I can tell, next Friday's build will also wrap up the last ending and get started on the polish side of things. Also, no picture this week because the build was 100% words and 100% major spoilers, lol.

Important:
I've said this before, but I plan to implement some new features before release that'll break save compatibility. I'm trying to hold those off for now since we're so close to the end, but in the coming weeks as I'm getting everything spit-shined up for the big 1.0, you might see your saves stop working. The very next alpha build (v0.141) will probably be the last version you can use with your old save file and will include all of the game's endings, so make sure you don't hold off too long!

Version 0.139 - 7-31-2020
Added in all of the ending narratives EXCEPT ONE (FUCK)
Added in a new voiced segment for Beatrix
Fixed an issue where the Ch. 8 Qel cutscene could play when arriving to the valley in Ch. 10
Added Mercy’s wounded sprites
Fixed an issue where Eva could be incorrectly absent from the cove post-battle

New Release: Version 0.142!

Hey everyone! Not doing an image this week, because almost all the new stuff is system tweaks or changes to stuff that already exists.

You can get the full scoop down below, just remember that all bets are off for old save files at this point until the full launch. I've knocked a lot of the features out I was hoping for, so here's what's left to tackle:

- New Art
- More adult scenes
- Playtesting
- Balance
- Bug Fixes
- Fleshing out all the endings a bit more

Until next time, hope you enjoy!

Version 0.142 - 8-28-2020 - (Breaks old save compatibility)
Added a new cutscene with 2 variations which helps to contextualize some of the endings
Added an “overkill” feature, granting bonus rewards for overkilling easier enemies
Base weather effects now carry over into battles from the map
Added a shortcut keybind to the Stat Allocation menu (“P” by default)
Added keyboard functionality for name & number entry
Added the ability to rename most weapons and armor (useful for keeping track of rune upgrades or hidden abilities, or just for fun)
Added a “message speed” feature to the options menu
Redesigned the shop buttons for use with a mouse
Made some minor tweaks to the early cutscenes for better quality & continuity
Mercy no longer starts with 100 SP; instead, she gains 100 after choosing her Essence Type
Fixed an issue where spending 300 SP only increased crit chance by .5% instead of 1%
Fixed the coloring on some of Orus’s weapons
Adjusted a typo in the target rate distribution & made it cost 100 SP instead of 300
Fixed an issue where trying to leave the throne room in the opening dream sequence revealed the wrong portrait

Release 0.143: The Exterminator

Hello, everyone! Version 0.143 is here!

I'm working on a couple of actually COOL things this week (that you'll learn more about soon), but most of my fun took a backseat to the Biblical plague of bugs that I've been busy annihilating. Thanks to JJJ from the Discord for reporting a number of these.

The full list is down below. The keen observer might also notice some new content and fairly significant balance changes sneaked in there, and I am caught red-handed: it's been a busy week in Development Purgatory, but the finished result is a much refined and improved experience for everyone, I think.

And it's all fully compatible with last week's build, so don't fret there. Chances are, everything will be compatible now even up through the full launch and beyond.

Version 0.143 - 9-4-2020

Made equipment scale slightly higher to avoid scenarios where the player never upgrades once they have runes slotted into early gear
Reduced the point value of HP on gear and in the upgrade screen from 20:1 > 15:1, which should also address axes seeming disproportionately easy to use at lower levels
Added Maven back to the cove post-siege
Added a new campsite in the Glass Sea only accessible with Qel that starts a new quest (WIP)
Level caps are now 50 instead of 99, though SP can still be earned indefinitely. Stat allocation is capped for primary stats at 100 each and 33 for special parameters like crit and evasion

Fixed an issue with the doorway from the cove to the residential area sometimes not showing up correctly
Fixed a few outdated cooking fires

Fixed a missing portrait issue for Beatrix in the Carvannah palace dungeon
Fixed an issue where the mining cart riding sprite wouldn’t appear correctly in Hawk’s Keep
Fixed a portrait issue in the frozen caves passage

Fixed an issue where Marlan could appear twice during a cutscene in the cove
Fixed an issue where the lumber could remain at Fort Wilkes even after the raft was built

Fixed an issue where Quinn and Bartleby might not appear if they were recruited from the flame temple quest
Fixed an issue where Bartleby and Quinn would have dialogue based on the wrong death flags instead of their partner’s
Fixed an issue where you could enter the cove’s boathouse during the red moth cutscene, causing a scene break
Fixed an issue where Franz could appear before the final siege even if he had previously died
Fixed an issue where Mercy was unable to ride Orus in certain cove map variations in later chapters
Fixed an issue with the Red Iron Stump greatsword where it was not correctly applying the Dizzy state
Fixed an issue where leaving Mercy’s bedroom after ch. 8 could fail to prompt a choice to leave the dorms directly
Fixed an issue where Mercy’s “Daughter of Essence” class wasn’t correctly applying the added physical damage penalty
Fixed an issue where a number of quests in the journal without names or places would have placeholder names
Fixed an issue where Marlan could appear in two places at once when returning from Witchdale

New Weekly & Alpha: Bugpocalypse II, the Reckoning

Hi everyone, the new release this week is another massive collection of bug fixes and quality of life improvements for weekly & alpha patrons alike.

Just a reminder to the alpha patrons, however, that this version will not be compatible with your old version 0.140 or earlier save files on account of the myriad new features.

Still working hard on some new content behind the scenes, so there's plenty more to look forward to. Thanks again for all your continued support, and I hope you enjoy!

Made slight changes to all the long-form scene formatting in the library.

New Release: v0.145!

Hi everyone! We've got another build with a whole lot of small improvements to quality of life, bug fixes, system upgrades and fine-tuning.

This fixes a lot of long-time issues that have plagued the game as a consequence of higher than 60 hz monitors and should also improve performance on a lot of PCs while making the playing experience more consistent for everybody.

Thanks for your continued support as we make the game as good as it can be in preparation for the full launch!
