Alpha 0.12 Patchnotes - Tutorials and Settings

Another update! This is a more significant change, adding a couple new features. Still relatively small, but paving the way for some bigger stuff to come soon.

First Draft Tooltips: 125 remaining out of 307

Feature changes:

  • Added optional tutorial to explain how to interact with the game and what different elements mean.
  • Now has main menu and settings menu.
  • Stores some overarching settings, like default tooltip mode and keyboard shortcut for tooltips.
  • Can now re-roll Story Objects when defining them, including optionally locking in some traits.
  • Story Object Cards now include a sample image of a filled out card for users to see.
  • Starting Power is now stored independent of current Power.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed bug with narrative prompt tooltips not appearing
  • Fixed story writing to replace newline characters with <br> tags that will function as line breaks.
  • Added button to start coin pool calculation.

Next Build:

  • An Epilogue passage at the end, to allow any Story Objects to get their own ending
  • More Passage Types  (eg Gain Ally, Strengthen Ally, Training, Epilogue)
  • A less linear story structure, that allows choosing paths and randomised passage types appearing.
  • Add UI to show progress through a story

The Future:

  • Improved UI for browsing and editing old written passages
  • Section for generating prompts for Hero, Setting, Quest etc. independent of a story.
  • In game editing to disable particular prompts as well as rewrite existing ones or add custom prompts
