New Features
New camera and controls scheme

  • You can now directly control the camera using the WSAD keys, or by putting the mouse to the edge of the screen.
  • You can now manually enter combat mode at any time by pressing “C”, or clicking the “DRAW WEAPON” button.
  • When a combat is over, you can now manually trigger the reply by pressing “SPACE”, or the “DROP IT” button. Alternatively, you can use this opportunity to Undo and try something else.
  • You can now bind new keys to controls in the options menu! We’ve also changed the default bindings a bit.


  • We’ve added a number of dynamic tutorials that will appear in-game when you encounter the relevant scenario for the first time.
  • Some items also have special Training Scenario levels. When you buy these items in the shop, you will have the option of playing the Training Scenario and learning about the item.

Combat Mode

  • During combat, a new (WIP) UI is displayed that gives you information about stats for the current combat.
  • The confirm-action button is now part of this new UI, and includes additional information about the action you are considering: action time and Time Resource cost.
  • During the combat replay (or, The Drop), the action is displayed with a series of camera-cuts that show the action close-up. This is just a first step for this feature, we plan on doing a lot more with it in the next update.
  • After combat, Kai will automatically reload all his weapons.


  • Added a display of the full history of a dialogue, so you can see what was said previously.
  • Each dialogue line in the history displays an emoticon, so you can see what line cause what reaction.
  • We’ve heard some feedback that sometimes, the dialogue responses don’t make sense as part of the conversation. This is in part due to how our dialogues are procedurally recombined. That said, we want to eliminate this problem, so we’ve added a new button that you can click if you think a particular line doesn’t make sense. When you click it, it’ll send us a report about the dialogue lines that were used.
