Our latest pre-alpha demo is our most refined, beautiful, full-featured and optimized demo yet! What are you waiting for? Give it a try! (And don't forget to sign up for our newsletter!)
Hi everyone! We've been working hard to update, optimize and fix some of the issues reported in our most recent pre-alpha demo and we have a new build available! We're looking for any and all feedback, so if you're feeling up to the challenge, dive right in: there's over three hours of content, loads of skills, items and equipment, and plenty of challenging encounters!
Since we've changed our name from Bevontule to Wellspring, if you want to keep your old save files and configuration settings, you'll need to do a few things, as the application data folder has a different name:
- Find the AppData folder for Bevontule--this is usually found at C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\LocalLow\Multithreaded Games\
- Run "Wellspring_Demo.exe" and close it before choosing configuration options from the built-in Unity dialog.
- There should be a "Wellspring" directory in the same directory as the previously-mentioned Bevontule folder.
- Open the Bevontule folder and copy all of its contents into the Wellspring folder--make sure to overwrite anything if prompted.
- Run the game as normal!
Here's a full list of all the changes:
