TSoG Update: AIR build released

I’ve now officially released the first AIR build of Telepath RPG: Servants of God! This version of the game runs on Windows, Mac and Linux alike using a single installer.

To install, make sure you have Adobe AIR–it’s free and available right here. Install AIR first–once that’s taken care of, get the game and install it.

This build features a ton of improvements to the game–so many that I can’t get into them all here–but here are a few:

  • The Crypt of the Poet King is now finished, and boy is it ever a nasty one.
  • My favorite new feature is that your character can now use drugs and (depending on your luck) get addicted, suffering prolonged withdrawal effects if he goes too long without a hit. (Don’t do drugs, kids!)
  • You can now swap out orbs between battles.
  • There’s new music in the game that plays during the battle preparation screen.
  • There are a ton of bug fixes.
  • The game engine now officially supports voiced dialog.
  • Did I mention that Mac and Linux owners can now play the game off their hard drives? Because they can. And it’s awesome.

Answers to other things I’ve been asked:

For instructions on transferring your old save files, check out this thread on the forums.

Pre-ordering remains exactly the same process–you’ll have to unlock the demo using the instructions you received when you pre-ordered. If you need those instructions sent to you again, just send me an email providing the email address you used to order the game.

    The updates above….is it only available to the Pre-paids?

    Some are, some aren’t. For instance, you can get drugs and go through addiction whether you’ve pre-ordered or not. But you won’t have access to the Crypt of the Poet King.

    Will I still have my old saves? Or will I need to start a new game?

    I download AIR and all the gameu00a0files, but I don’t know what to open TSoG.swf file with.u00a0 It is just a blank white square.

    You don’t open the swf file. If you installed in Windows, there should be a shortcut to the game in your Start Menu. Also, there will be a file in the program’s folder called “Telepath RPG Servants of God.exe” which will run the game as well.

    If it says AIR is already installed, you can just skip right to installing the game. Just double-click “Telepath RPG Servants of God.air” and it will install the game for you.

    I can’t find any “.air” or “.exe” files in the folder.u00a0 I instilled AIR, but nothing happens.

    What if thre isn’t a “Telepath RPG Servants of God.air”?

    E-mail me with details on exactly what you did, and I’ll walk you through it.

    Now then while I hope everyone knows who the publisher is it might not be a horrible idea to somehow let AIR know that, cause when I downloaded it it told me the publisher was unknown. Some people might worry when they see that.

    That, unfortunately, is a side effect of the way Adobe has built AIR. In order to remove that “Unknown Publisher” warning, I would need to purchase an AIR Developer Certificate from Thawte. It costs hundreds of dollars, and once you pay, you don’t even own it–it expires after a year or two. (See: http://www.thawte.com/code-signing/content-signing-certificates/adobe-air/index.html ) nnSo essentially, I would have to pay $549 for the right to sell my game for 2 years free of a ridiculous message warning users that Adobe doesn’t know who I am. This strikes me as an elaborate system of extortion, one which I flatly refuse to participate in.
