Castle Level, Achievements for Dragon Audit Released

Purchasers of Dragon Audit can now download the Castle level -- this means that all in-game content except the ending is now playable!

George and Ayraw must fix the castle's paternoster in order to complete the audit.  Search the castle for useful parts:

Along the way, you'll get to see George & Ayraw's backstories, too:

Also included is a new built-in achievement system -- all of them but 'Beat the Game' should currently be unlockable:

The custom PC controls binding system that previously debuted in the demo is also now available:

There's also some improved visuals of the mainland peninsula leading up to Ayraw's floating island:

There are too many changes to list, but here's some of the popularly requested fixes and systems:

  • Specials updated in Squelch's Tavern
  • Don't run when looking at UI
  • Custom mouse cursor
  • Fixed jumping down stairs
  • Smoother movement through doors and against walls so you don't get stuck moving
  • Improved visuals
  • Added a secret to Castle

To play it, just open the launcher (AESU) and you should get the latest content automatically.  The build date on the main menu should be 7/28 and marked 'CAS' (for Castle).

The dev status page has also been updated.

Demo Extension

I'm extending the length of availability for our Steam demo; some people may not have had a chance to fully play the demo during the festival, so I will be keeping it online for some time.  Have fun!

SCIENCE DRAGON RAMPAGE (48hr Game Jam)

You are a robotic science dragon who has crash landed on a hostile planet.  Many of your systems are broken -- defeat enemies to collect their technology (screws) and repair yourself (R key).  Bigger enemies are more powerful, and tend to spawn further away from your start position.

Download here.
