Update 11 Delay

Update 11 will be delayed due to unforeseen compiler errors. The newly optimized build of Windstone runs great on my end, but when I package it for distribution there are errors that cause the build to fail. I believe these errors are due to broken redirectors which are trying to find and load objects that have been deleted from the project. Once these errors are fixed I will upload the new build. It should not take more than a day or two.

Game updates December 2017.

Various fungi have been added which tie into the mental and physical gameplay mechanics. The edible mushrooms have different effects, such as causing or preventing drowsiness and mental clarity. Some are also poisonous, but might be worth eating when the benefit outweighs the cost.

The cave system has been populated with light-emitting crystals to help guide the player in some areas of the cave.

New Creature

A new creature has been added to the game. A description by the developer:

“It’s inspired by the Tardigrade, also known as a Water Bear, a microscopic animal that’s classified as an extremophile, which can live in extreme conditions and is nearly impervious to death. In The Last Makaran, it’s about as big as a Grizzly Bear”
