2 Year Anniversary Patch

News

steam2years

Phew! It's been a crazy year since I last updated Kalaban's page on IndieDB.

A lot has happened, and now Kalaban is finally being transferred to a new publisher in Steam. I have gotten my Steamworks developer account back, and I just recently released a new patch for the game. Here's a short list of the updates:

  • Auto-attack while you keep your Attack button down, and keep attacking through reload.
  • The description box on objects has been altered.
  • Esc on main menu will also act as a back function.
  • Main menu intro can be skipped.
  • Brightness setting fixed so that you cannot underset or overset the brightness.
  • All the white edges on the level backgrounds fixed.
  • WMV format on the Main menu background video clip.
  • Paula & Kaarina quest bug fixed where you cannot get the item if they have left.
  • Paula’s freezer taunt fixed after the story has gone forward.
  • Enemy health bar sometimes not appearing fixed.
  • Super armor now visible on paper doll in Inventory screen.
  • Fixed flamethrower damage on the Brambler monster.
  • Horde Mode item pickup recognition enhanced.
  • Horde Mode scene changing taken off because of confusion.

A lot of features on the update are stuff that I have planned to include in the game for over a year. Especially the auto-attack feature really enhances the gameplay feel in combat.

Incidentally, Kalaban is now also -40% on Steam Winter Sale, go pick it up! Or if you own it and haven't played the game in a while, give it a spin. Let's enjoy the 2 year anniversary of the game together!

Thank you! We're working on a complete re-haul for the light & shadow system right now. It's going to be much more cinematic and horror style, with colored lights and dynamic shadow and light objects. We'll be posting fresh screenshots of it soon!

"kalaban" means "enemy" from the filipino word.

It's a good addition to the atmosphere which we have cooking in the game. We're working out ways to combine interesting exploration, adventure game mechanics and action.

Thanks! We're hard at work to finish the first act of the game by the end of May. The progress has been slow, as our team members also have other jobs and we currently can't develop the game full-time.
