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.
