It’s finally here! The public beta for Tales of Astya is now available for download on itch.io! It’s been a long time coming, and now it’s finally here.
How to help out
If you want to help with the fixing bugs, the best thing you can do is use the in-game bug reporting tool or visiting this page (Google Forms) to report something. Inclusion of screenshots are greatly appreciated and will help speed up fixing considerably.
The plan is to release weekly patches when the most critical bugs have been fixed, with new content being added periodically. I will be making blog posts both here on this website and on itch.io using the new Devblog feature.
I’ve also recently begun streaming some development over on Twitch, and plan to continue doing this when fixing reported bugs and adding new content. Schedule for streaming is currently set to be between 17:00 (UTC +1) to 20:00 (UTC +1), hopefully every day. Join in and listen to some chill music and talk about game development. I will be posting on Twitter 10-15 minutes before starting a stream to give you a heads up.
Not too many this week, as most of my time has been spent replacing the old dialogue boxes with new ones.
- Added safes with number combinations that hold large sums of money.
- Codes can usually be found in the near vicinity of the safe.
- Removed all 3D models and went back to using only 2D assets.
- Some quest improvements
That’s all for now. I really hope you’ll download and try the beta, and report some glitches and/or bugs you come across. Until next time, have a good one.
