Hi all,

Finally, after 7 months of hard work, designing, building, testing etc, we are proud to announce that beta 3.0 of your_adventure is live now. You can download it via our audiogames page from our website. But wait, with this release something completely new is released as well, namely, the castlevania add-on. This add-on adds a complete new area with several new quests, harvestables, recipes, enemies, items, easter eggs, a seasonal event, a general store which buys, instead of sells all items you can't sell somewhere else, and with way much in the planning. Wow, check it out!

This version got a lot of upgrades and fixes, i will list a few down below, when you really are interested about each small fix or upgrade, then i advice you to read through this topic till post 150 smile

- the fisherman is willing to explain the arts of fishing to you when you talk with him the first time, beware, he will explain it his own way.
- the amount of quests in the free game are raised to 10, three of these are randomly encountered.
- added a small graveyard behind dalgrim, i have to admit, it was interesting to build in a good way, it made my mentally more rich, no joking.
- added the harvesting basket to the general store, as well as a dull looking scythe somewhere else.
- revamped the harvesting system, it is based on level now, this will be the future of the other lasy activities as well, such as woodcutting tongue
- darkwolf checked a lot of the older grammer, and as you probably have seen in the preview video, she also rewrote the tramp quest for example.
- while fighting against boss monsters, when your enemy got the first round of attack, and you blocked in time, the block wasn't executed, thanks koma, for finding this one.
- the old button during combat to quaff a small or a large potion are gone now, and are replaced with the i button, inventory.
- and much much more.

Additions for the castlevania add-on:
- the castlevania add-on is one large area, devided into 3 subareas
- added the castlekey, which you'll need to enter the castlevania domain
- added 9 quests.
- 3 new harvestables
- 2 recipes
- 4 new enemies, bosses not included.
- 3 new obtainable combat abilities.
- a general store, which purchases, instead of sells.
- two easter eggs, which can be accessed each game year
- a very cool item, which makes traveling a lot easier.
- A seasonal event

And we have much more in the planning for the future. This add-on will cost 5 euro's. Please allow us up till 24 hours, before sending reminders, cause your order will be processed by hand, and being send to you by hand. I know this has been done before by other devs, but please, trust us, we care about you, and we want to get the product to you asap, this is our promise and guaranty.

This add-on wouldn't be possible without our beta testers, namely:

- lisa marten
- joseph weakland
and
- dark

You guys totally rock!

Anyhow, enough of my rambling, you can go to:

Hi all,

i just updated the 1st post, with direct links, i forgot that linking to direct pages on our server doesn't work out that well.

@jasonblaze, thanks for pointing out on how to download the game smile

As a sidenote, a version for mac-users is available now as well. Please keep in mind it is a direct port of the windows version of the game, so things may behave a bit different then on windows smile

I will update the website with the mac link.

Hi!
Try download this game by copying address and keep It at vision games. Next, move to section our games and then It is easy to download.
I have noticed one bug of this game in fishing. It says, that I need zero experience. Very strange.

Music is the language of the universe.

Hi,

@karlitos,
That's a very strange bug, i never have encountered it before. When you try to restart the game and try to create your character again, does it work then? Some things in the character creation did change, like pressing enter after some messages. And i noticed when using NVDA for example, that some messages don't get spoken. What i want to ask, did you hear the message if you are feeling comfortable with your given age or did you hear something else? Sorry, for these silly questions, but i want to nail down the problem for my understanding so i can give more solid help.

@giovani,

I quickly wrote a small patch, wich you can find in the 1st post. I can remember this problem occuring every so often, but after restarting the game, and starting a new game did solve the issue, but after installing this patch, and after a new game, should fix the issue in future i hope.

Appologies for this hasty and probably inaccurate message, but am in a hurry. I will reply in more detail when things are unclear smile

Thanks for playing this game.

completed all the quest, yay!
nice job so far, although still, the combat... it's waaay to easy, haha, you could just spam h to make sure you'll hit the enemy on the right time.
I love the idea of this game, keep it up man!
you probably have to think something that fun to do so your players will not get bored after they do all the quests. I have no good idea right now though... lol
anyways is that field music from harvest moon?

Hi

@JasonBlaze

Congratulations on completing the quests smile

On things to do after the quests, we are still adding content, for example a system of crafting, equipment, far more rooms to explore, more quests, mobquests. But i agree that some extra activities should be added you can do after completing the quests. Do you have suggestions apart from the previous ones i mentioned? Am very curious.

As a sidenote, the first add-on is in the works, wich will open up a complete new area, with seasonal activities, a special general store, wich will buy stuff you can't sell anywhere else, more quests etc. We are currently designing it and working on it. Of course this add-on will be released when this beta is stable.

edit:
About the combat, we know it isindeed simplistic,and can be easely cheated, by continuely hitting the h button. But combat is just one of the activities, not the most important one. But we quite like the idea the player hastwo choices, 1. the player can continuely hit the h button. Or 2, take on the challenge and hit the h button when the player is told to press it. This is up to the player on wich way to play. But we are aware of it smile
-- end edit

Thanks for the feedback thus far and keep it coming guys smile

Hi

@masroor.rahmani

When you own the requirements for certain recipes they will show up. For example when you have caught a fish, and you own a bucket of water, you can try to cook the fish. When you own flour and water, you can make a ball of dough, and with the dough you can bake a loaf of bread. To name a few examples.

This game is quite awesome though there are a lot of typos here and there.
I've noticed a bug when fishing after meeting a certain fishing level (probably 4), making the fishing operation completely unusable so that you hear the fishing rod sound then the docks' description without being asked to cast or anything like that.

hey guys, going to give this game a try soon. Also when you guys expand this game, in what way are you going to do it? is it going to be automatic updates, pay for new regions/features (if this game is good and it sounds good I'd be willing to do that after a good taste.) or would it be like expansion packs,  or simply new editions of the game?

All of them sound cool, just wondering how you guys plan to grow it. It sounds great though and I intend to try later.

Hi,

just updated the link for mac os.

@riad

I will try to reproduce the bug this evening and write a fix if i find something, thanks for reporting. If you can list some of the typo's, it would be very helpful.

@bookrage,

our plan is that version 1.0 of the game will be free for all. But there will be expansion packs wich can be purchased. For example, the 1st add-on where we are currently working on, is named castle castlevania. This will be a complete new area, wich only can be explored if you purchased this expansion. If you own this add-on, you'll have the option to enable it at the start of a new game.
We have plans to build a quests add-on, wich enables a pack of quests you only can play if you own it, other areas, like the castlevania one, special items etc. You can compare it like a world in an online game but in an offline setting. But we don't want to build add-ons where if you pay, you'll get better content, the free game has to be great fun as well, the add-ons just add extra stuff.

An automated updater i don't know how to build, not yet, at least, but i think the links will be updated by hand, and the players will have to download the new versions, till an auto-updater can be figured out. But no promises. If players own add-ons, i will keep a list of PayPal addresses, with wich add-ons someone owns, and i will send out the updated versions, with purchased add-ons enabled.

these are really good news, keep up your great work.
As for the typos, I will make a complete playthrough and copy each and every one I find. There is another bug I encountered long since harvesting was introduced, which is that your harvesting experience won't save with your game progress.
All the best with your development and whole life, this is the type of games I always waited for.

Hi,

@riad
the bug has been solved now, not in the release published, but in the upcoming patch, the saving and loading of harvesting will be fixed.

It will be very helpful if such a list can be provided, thanks a lot.

so, just wondering for the sake of the expansion packs but also keeping the base game fun.

This might be what you're doing so I don't know. But the idea of having expansions, but also having some free content with updates as well every now and then in addition?

It sounds great, it's something a lot of free games do. "Hey, we got this cool stuff for you even if you're playing for free, and we've got  other stuff too that you can pay for that we released this time too."

Hi

@riad,
I have discovered the bug you were having, it has been fixed in the codebase. The patch in the 1st post will be updated, Thursday evening when i can't do it sooner. I will do my best to upload it tomorrow evening, but no guaranties, am rather busy tomorrow, but will do my best smile

@bookrage,

I think you caught what we are intending to do. Offering expantion packs, while keeping the main game fun as well. When expantions gets released, the main game also gets fixes and updates where necessary. For example, when we want to include a new expantion, the main game also gets extra rooms/areas to link to the expantion, but also to enlarge the free world to explore, with things to do etc.

Please don't think we only build new rooms and areas for expantions then, that's not true, we believe that our work on the your_adventure world, won't be finished very soon. There will be Always new things wich comes in our minds, what we want to include.

I am off to bed, but i hope my explanation did help smile

spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler.
How do I get access to the 2 secret areas and the MobQuests?
I've already killed the dragon in the lair, killed the rats, made the cake to give to the woodsman, cut down some trees to make logs for the woodsman fireplace and spoken to the tramp and given him some gold, oh and I've killed the crab at the beach.

The mob quest is the dragon in the lair. You can enter a small place in town when the season gets very cold, this will still be expanded up on. Right now you can get a curse or a blessing. the second secret place, is in the forest, but where both places are, that's up to the players to find smile I just give a few hints smile
