Music and Graphics
The new music for Classic Mode has now been added to the game, as well as the new graphics for Worlds 3 and 4 of Classic Mode. You can hear previews of the music added so far here. There is also new music coming for Christmas mode, but that will be released in another update.
There are also new, animated title and menu screens. There have been minor volume adjustments to the base levels of the sound effects and music so existing players may want to adjust their volumes again.
Pricing hasn't changed yet. I will release the new Christmas music very soon, then when I update the graphics in the following update (probably in August), I will increase the price of the game to $8 USD at this time, as well as release the new official Soundtrack to buy on Steam at $8 USD.
When the Ruins update gets released later in the year, which is a significant content update with new puzzles, the price will be raised one last time to $10 USD. I have plans to release more content for Puzzledorf after that, but no plans for further price increases. Except some more updates with free new puzzles in the future. I also have plans to port Puzzledorf to console, probably looking into this after the Ruins update.
Beyond that, my attention has been turning towards other projects. I have started toying around with a fun little RPG prototype (shown below) that may evolve into a full game. More on that in the future.
