Upheaval Alpha Version 0.0.8 is Available (The Mac and Linux Update)
Hi adventurers! Upheaval Alpha Version 0.0.8 is the Mac and Linux Update! Upheaval comes to Mac and Linux, and gets a bunch of nice quality updates as well! I hope you enjoy! 😃
Also: Since the last update, I made a TON of progress toward getting Upheaval to run on iOS! A lot of what’s left is dealing with Apple’s submission process. If you have an iPhone or iPad, stay tuned for more news about this!
To try this update, download the free demo, or, if you own Upheaval, download the new update from itch.io or Google Play.
After you download the update, start a new game to try out the new content!
SPOILERS MAY BE AHEAD! TAKE CARE!
Highlights from this update
- New version for Mac! 🍎
- New accessible version for Mac Console! 🍏
- New version for Linux! 🐧
- New accessible version for Linux Console! Note: Linux Console players will have to start the game as a command from within Terminal. 👩💻
- Added a main menu to all versions! Special thanks to Guilherme Holz for the awesome looking button frames (which are also now used throughout the game):
- Reworked the journal UI and graphics! The journal now looks more awesome, and behaves more like the map and inventory:
- User Request from Ran S.: Made “Add to Journal” a one-click button, so you don’t have to click into the journal to write in it. The new button has a Quill icon (because you write in the journal). The button is circled in the picture below:
- Added a cool transition when you start a new game, to better set the mood. The first and second games you play get special transitions, so, if you want to see them, you can delete or temporarily move all your save games and start a new game.
Keep reading to see the complete list of changes! 😊
