Please share your bugs and other issues you find here! 

We will do our best to address and fix them as soon as possible and upload a fixed version. In the case that you download a new version to fix a bug, here are the steps necessary in order to keep your save data:

  • Open the file location where katjasabyss.exe/katjasabyss.app is
  • Copy katjasabyss.saves and paste it somewhere safe (eg. on the Desktop)
  • Reinstall Katja's Abyss: Tactics
  • Move the katjasabyss.saves folder from your Desktop (or wherever you pasted it) back into the folder where the game is, choosing "replace" when prompted

The files inside katjasabyss.saves are what store your campaign progress, high score, settings preferences, and other details. If the above steps are inaccurate to your system, just make sure you don't lose the files inside katjasabyss.saves.

Known Bug #01 - Enemies spawn on top of units

Description: When there is little fog of war and enemies spawn, there is a chance an enemy will be created at a location occupied by an existing unit.

Threat Leve: Minor; enemy can be targeted or player unit can be moved from the double-occupied space

Steps to reproduce:

  • Move player units to reduce darkness/fog of war to a minimum
  • Wait for turn multiple of 3 (eg. turn 3, 6, 9, etc.), when enemies spawn
  • Rely on random chance to spawn enemy on occupied space

Fixed on: 4/12/21 (Hotfix 1.0.1)

Known Bug #02 (and a half) - Mid-level save data doesn't get cleared

Description: Quitting in the middle of the campaign level, then beating it later, will cause you to load back into that level when you select "Continue" from the title menu.  ADDITIONALLY, selecting "Erase save data" on the title screen will not remove the mid-level save data.

Threat Level: Mid; cannot be fixed without manipulating files in the file browser. 

Steps to reproduce: 

  • Enter a campaign level
  • Quit (don't retreat)
  • Continue campaign mode
  • Beat the level 
  • Quit to the title screen from the level select area
  • Continue campaign mode
  • Observe

How to fix: 

  • Open the file location where katjasabyss(.exe/.app) is (where the game is on your computer)
  • Open katjasabyss.saves
  • Delete 3.rsav
  • (This works to resolve both of the issues described above.)

Known Bug #03 - Sector 8 can be completed incorrectly

Description: Sector 8 allows you to build an Extractor. It should be disabled on this level due to a different win condition. This can cause a quite confusing and anti-climactic ending to the game. 

Threat Level: Med; likely to occur and interferes with the ending of the game.

Steps to reproduce: 

  • Enter Sector 8
  • Collect 150 energy
  • Build an Extractor
  • Observe

How to fix: 

  • Do not build an Extractor in Sector 8

Fixed on: 4/15/21 (Hotfix 1.0.2)

Steps to reproduce:

  • Complete Sector 8
  • [REDACTED]
  • Proceed through the ending cutscene and credits
  • Observe

How to fix: 

  • While on the level select map after completing the credits, DO NOT CLICK QUIT IN THE MENU
  • Close the program with Alt+f4/Command+Q or by clicking the X in windowed mode
  • Reopen the game and Continue the campaign

Fixed on: 4/15/21 (Hotfix 1.0.2)

Known Bug #05 - Hot Keys for movement and actions usable when unit already moved/acted

Description: If a selected unit has acted already, an X keypress allows the unit to act again. Similar with pressing C to trigger movement. Additionally, if a unit has acted, C cannot be used to start movement, and if a unit has moved, X cannot be used to start acting.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Perform a unit action
  • Select the unit and press X
  • Observe

How to fix: 

  • Do not press X if the selected unit has acted
  • Do not press C if the selected unit has moved 

Fixed on: 5/3/21 (Hotfix 1.0.3)

Hi, I just got this game as part of the big bundle.  The download page says "Your purchase comes with a Steam key!"  However, clicking show steam key shows the message "There are no keys available at this time, try again later."

Developer(+1)

Hi! That's because all the available Steam keys have been claimed. I did not account for the bundle sales when I requested the batch of keys from Steam! Thanks for notifying me. I will request more and post a devlog when more are available. Thanks for your patience. 

yes i wait for steam key thanks

I'm playing the infinite mode, and on floor 4, it won't let me build the extractor. it gives me the message "Build Extractor on Target!" every time I try. I've scrolled over the whole map and I don't see any target spots. moving my refinery around to try building elsewhere didn't help.

Developer(+1)

I might know what the source of that is. Big whoops. That message is meant for Sector 3 in Campaign Mode.

In campaign, when I replay the tutorial via going to the training facility and then exit out of it the refinery that I control on the level select hub spawns on top of the door to the training facility. I can't move using the arrow keys as the refinery is stuck inside the door and using the mouse to click anywhere on the hub will automatically send me into Sector 7. Retreating from that level sends me back to the level select with the refinery still stuck in the same position. Once the refinery gets stuck like this it stays on that same spot even after closing and relaunching the game.

After erasing save data, replaying the tutorial doesn't seem to get me stuck anymore. However, the game keeps asking me to enter a name whenever I replay and leave the tutorial. Also, I am only able to leave the tutorial by completing it as the retreat option doesn't seem to work in the tutorial unless this is intended.
