Progress Update


Hey IndieDB! I wanted to give you a quick update on what I am currently working on. These changes will be added to the game in the next big patch that will address difficulty and accessibility of the game. If something has turned out to be causing frustration for players, it'll get replaced or improved. So watch for news to learn everything about the upcoming patch.

Dropdown Ability


There is now a dropdown ability! I'll try to introduce this ability as early as possible into the game. While its use isn't required, it adds a lot mobility to fumiko and can save your life when chased by enemies. Especially in the level shown below, where your main goal is to fall down as fast as you can, this ability is extremely useful. I'm glad I implemented it and it will be a part of the next update.

Hyperion


I wanted to give hyperion a bit more polish and make it easier to continue the story. I think I hit the bar correctly - it'll still surprise new players with chaos and confusion, but gives them a red line to follow. No one should get lost in the new version. I made some slight adjustments to how the distortion of hyperion looks like and added a new cutscene to the university. There is some new and some overhauled dialogue.

I am currently thinking about adding even more social interactions to hyperion to reward exploration a bit more. With the new map the existing homeworlds should now be findable, but it would be cool to have some additional smaller homeworlds. Not set in stone yet, but I think it would move hyperion even more to what I had envisioned for it.

Endless Jumps earlier


I've watched Ryo's awesome Let's Play of the game which you should check out now if you're looking for an in-depth playthrough that talks about the strengths and weaknesses of the game. While he has not discovered everything, it is really worth a watch and has some great suggestions for the game.

One of these suggestions was to give Fumiko endless jumping earlier. This was easy to implement, so why not. After leaving the I.M. Server, you'll now get endless jumping immediately, which will help in the upcoming boss fight and some levels after it.

I.M. Server


I apologize for creating a level that is mostly invisible and has almost no landmarks for players to help them navigate through. The puzzle itself isn't too difficult, but finding the switches has turned out to be a timewaster for some. This is not intended and I'm going to add stuff in to make your position inside more clear and tell you at least a direction where to go. This will be one of the next things I'll mess around with.

Planned Price Drop


I am planning to drop the price for Fumiko! permanently to something between $6.99 and $9.99. The reasons for this are explained in the following community announcement (Steam). So if you want to buy the game, give the store pages on Steam and Itch.io a visit over the next days!

Thank you!


For your interest in the game. I hope the price drop is received positively. Fumiko! is a game that has a lot to offer and I want more people to be able to play it.

Best Regards,
Odrez

Thank you! Yes I noticed your follow on itch.io. The launch has been pretty tough for now, but hopefully the game will get seen more.

Hope you're fine! If you need a key for the game to play it just toss me a message here.

Just played the demo and I really love the aesthetic! The PC controls are, not entirely wonderful, but that's a polish thing, it takes fine tuning but it's usually not too big of problem.

I did encounter one issue, the way you bring in the red orbs, the first one is off to the side where a player that just looks at the path you've set for them, won't see it until after they die at least once, I'd recommend moving it closer to the player's direct path, players are by nature stupid. You need to make them feel smart, but you can't rely on them to figure stuff out.

All in all though this is looking really good and I hope production is going well!

Thank you so much! I'll take a look into the orb. The first red orb in the demo is a bit tricky, as I wanted to lead the player to the floating hint that says "Use red orbs to avoid explosion". I felt like if I gave the player a possible solution after dying at least once, collecting the first red orb would be more meaningful.

I try to do everything possible to improve the controls. If you have any thoughts about what to improve (I guess you are referring to the keyboard+mouse controls), feel free to send me a message here. :) Doesn't have to be a solution - something that bothered you would be enough.

Production is going well! But exposure is equally difficult to accomplish. I'm planning to enter greenlight soon. Call me both afraid and excited.

Hi Odrez,

The games looking amazing! Have you planned for any audio in the game yet? If you are in need of some audio services I'd love to get involved. I'm a sound designer and I'm looking to get involved with great projects like yours.

Let me know and I can show you some examples of my work.

Thanks,
Chris

this game is glitch-mazing, I imagined for years a game with an amazing virtual world full of structures with disordered cubically pixlexia details, although in terms of gameplay is fast and that rare golden girl and is easy to fall. anyway it is an unusual game.

Hey! I already tweaked the movement to be more precise. In the next version of the preview level it's hopefully easier to stay on the cubes. ;)

Haha, yes the movement still needs some tweaking! I want the jumping puzzles to be interesting and challenging, but I really do not intend to let the player fall off the ledge on a regular basis!

Thank you for your feedback. Hope I can create the game you imagined. :)
