Long-time no see,
Well the wait is now over as Pule Portal Of Mystery is coming. The next free update for Pule is coming in the next few months and read all about it now.
Portal Of Mystery will incorporate three new features
- Information Log
- Trophy Cabinet
- Mystery Mode
These features introduce a new fresh feel to Pule. Find all characters, enemies, obstacles and bosses in the information log and familiarize yourself with the characteristics of each. A trophy system is key to every game and now you can find all the trophies in the Trophy Cabinet, located within Mystery Mode. And talking of the main thing itself Mystery Mode – this crazy new mode incorporates a world full of surprises and mystery of course. Journey through the Mysteryverse to discover the true meaning of Pule. Complete four incredibly hard levels to earn a massive reward that will change Pule forever.
However, this update is not ready yet. I simply want to announce this now so some speculation can begin on what the update will hold, and for this reason the full changelog will not be released until a couple of months after the update: keep an eye on the teaser image from time to time to see the latest tease and also check out the Portal Of Mystery key art. I hope to have a trailer ready soon ready for the release but until then every mystery has to be solved so I would start now and look forward to the release of the biggest update yet!
See you soon
As I’m sure you are aware Portal Of Mystery has not released yet. That is because I am facing some delays with working on the update. I’m going to be completely honest with you in this update and give you some information on why it has taken so long and when I hope to have the update ready by.
I’m going to just say that this update is late – very late. The original release date was 8th June however if I released it then, Mystery Mode would not have been completed. So I pushed the release back to 8th July. By this point Mystery Mode was only half complete with key aspects missing so I was in no way ready to release the update. With the rest of Mystery Mode to complete and the prize still to begin development I decided to not set another date but to complete the content ASAP. The reason this is taking so long is because I had a long passage of time of not working on the update and Mystery Mode is a complex feature: it is very polished and professional but in order to achieve this a lot more work has gone into this than any other part of the game. I also found coding and producing Mystery Mode a massive challenge as most of it is something I have never attempted with Clickteam Fusion before, and a little practice before hand would have been useful, I announced the DLC far too early as by now the hype for the update has died down however this brings me onto the present…
Portal Of Mystery is finally getting there. Mystery Mode is complete, with only performance and quality tuning to go when I play-test the update. I have also completed the Information Log and Trophy Cabinet, however they were created whilst Golden Dreams was in testing and still wasn’t released. The grand prize for completing Mystery Mode is shaping up to be my personal favourite addition in the game’s history as it has so much depth and I have great plans for this in the future. Just to give a little insight to how big this update is, Golden Dreams was 27.6MB whereas Portal Of Mystery is 57.0MB at the moment, I estimate with the prize finished that figure will rise to above 60MB, but that is just an estimate. The trailer for this update is looking great and is 95% complete and will be released, with a release date for this update at the end, a week before the update so those keen players can have a look and dissect the trailer for all the little information I’ve hidden in it.
Thank you for reading this very long-winded update and I hope this gives an explanation as to why there has been no update for the last 4 – 5 months. I will be updating the Pule promo picks to show off Boss Mode and Mystery Mode and overall appear more professional so keep a keen eye for those soon. Until then keep enjoying Pule.
SIDE NOTE: THIS IS THE LAST CHANCE TO SUBMIT ANY CHARACTER, LEVEL BALANCING OR BUGS BEFORE THE UPDATE IS OUT. PLEASE HEAD OVER TO THE FORUMS TO REPORT ANY IDEAS OR PROBLEMS WITH PULE AND I WILL ADD THEM TO THE LIST OF MANY FIXES AND CHANGES IN THIS UPDATE.
