Shattered Haven 1.003 "Brevity Is The Soul Of Wit" Released!
« on: March 21, 2013, 04:53:36 PM »
Original: http://arcengames.blogspot.com/2013/03/shattered-haven-1003-brevity-is-soul-of.html

This one is the second release of the day.  Based on some feedback that we got from a member of the press whom I greatly trust, I realized that our tutorial was just too darn long.  There were some parts where players were getting lost even in the alpha and beta, and the whole thing was taking quite a bit of time and delaying "getting to the good stuff," so to speak.

So we've cut down the tutorial to the parts that really matter, including the key things you need to learn and the long-term story bits, and hopefully this will give a better first introduction into the game.

Shattered Haven is something that people who are playing it really seem to love, but we're really having trouble getting the word out.  If you play it and love it, please spread the word!  We can use all the help we can get.  A huge thanks to all of you who have already done so.

Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the  in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  When you  launch the game, hit the big "Play" button and then you'll see the notice of the update having been found if you're connected to the Internet at the time.

This should be taken care of.

I certainly hope so, but I don't want to rely on any one source.  What if he doesn't like it, after all?  Different people have different tastes, so that's always a risk.  Still, very happy. :)

Well I just went through the new tutorial. I found one case of missing information, one case of missing immersion, and one bug that was probably there before.
Tutorial Lost Inventory and Items Controls
Tutorial Lost Squid Comic
Tutorial Squid Following the Wrong Character
