Light Fall Update: New Steam Beta!

Hey guys! It’s been some time since our last update about the game. The truth is we have been working on a new Steam build for our beta. Beta access was one of our Kickstarter rewards and it was a way for us to keep getting feedback with our fans throughout the development.

A big thanks to Ubisoft

A few weeks ago, we were offered a great opportunity by the Ubisoft team in Quebec City. They hosted two playtest sessions for our new material and it was a very awesome experience to see their playtest lab. We watched 16 testers play this new version and immediately spotted the glaring bugs and things that needed to be fixed. After the playtest, we went back to the studio and improved and fixed what needed to be done. If you were an Alpha Agent backer on Kickstarter, you can now directly test the new build in your Steam library.

What’s new?

Obviously, we’re not going to leave the rest of you in the dark. Just so you know, the development is progressing nicely and the entire beta should be completed in December. Here’s a list of the new things in this version.

  • A beta version of the Prologue has been added in this build.

The prologue takes place in a mysterious setting.

 

  • We have improved several elements of the first Act, the Lunar Plain, ranging from the level design to adding new in-game narrations. All in all, this act hasn’t changed much but the changes will make it more fluid and immersive.

Some parts of the levels have been redesigned to create a more adequate learning curve.

 

  • We’re presenting for the first time the second Act, the Marshlands of Sorrows. This act is a brand new region; new enemies, new game mechanics and new platforming elements will await the player.

The player will be able to experience the second act’s beta version.

 

  •  We’ve also added in-game collectibles in every level. These in-game collectibles are not doing anything just yet, but will be lore-related in the final game. Do you think you can find them all?

Be on the lookout for hidden collectibles scattered across the levels.

 

  •  We have three brand new songs to share with you. We’ll post more about the soundtrack pretty soon but go find out in-game and you will not be disappointed!

We are excited to share this build with you guys. Your feedback, suggestions and bug reports can be sent at feedback@bishopgames.com! Your help and comments will be greatly appreciated; it will help us when we get to the polishing phase.

That’s all for now, stay tuned and thanks for your continued support.
