Sorry for the long silence and thanks for your patience everybody! The exciting news of course is that we were (and still are) working hard on new updates for Catch & Release and we are proud to announce the (Steam) public beta of the Foundation Update today. As the name implies this is just the foundation we will build upon with our next updates. And I know that you guys want to know what those updates are and what the content is... but we will announce this as we develop and release them. Leave a little surprise :)
Anyways... first update, some fundamentals that needed fixing and adding.... and onwards and upwards!
We did change a lot under the hood. A major engine upgrade is just one of those changes. We also incorporated a lot of your usability feedback:
- Multiple save slots - Option for imperial units - Option to disable Snap turn - Separate SFX and ambience audio settings - (Re)moving the 'Reset game' button.
And made a lot of other usability improvements:
- Complete shop overhaul - Menu overhaul - Performance improvements ...
Join our public beta channel on Discord for a full list or any other feedback you want to share or discuss. The invite for the channel is: https://discord.gg/y9Tzus7
As always - with big changes there is the risk of unforeseen bugs and glitches. That's why we invite you all to participate in the public beta.
