Hey devs,

Any idea on when the new patch is ready?

Thanks

I wonder why Slitherine bothers to release games they are not going to support, or even bother to complete. This looked like a winner, with all the elements of a great fantasy strategy game, but after months of nothing I am convinced that it is abandonware. Do they really make enough off the initial release to even pay expenses? Puzzled, disappointed and feeling ripped off.

We, as the publisher, are dependant on the developers to keep producing updates, while on the other hand, the developers are forced by market realities to prioritise their time based on financial priorities and necessities.

Sovereignty had seen a long development process in Early Access where the developers made major changes and additions to the game based on the community's feedback, and then proceeded to fix the bugs reported after the official release, creating a very unique and fun title.
As for continued tweaks to the game, the developers have not officially given up on them, but clearly the time they can continue allocating to the game is limited, and they have not been able to tell us any estimates on how long a future patch would take. As such, we are unable to give you any more information, unfortunately.

That said, we have released the beta AI Overhaul plus general game fixes to Slitherine, who will determine patch release date.

Thank you for continious work on the game. It's still unique in the genre and I know many of us enjoy! Keep up the good work!

Hopefully you fixed the black screen bug that killed the game for a bunch of us, long after we paid for it

"The time they can continue allocating to the game is limited"(c)

Yes. The modern situation in gaming industry in ten words. No time to make your product worthy of the price you asked for it (and GOT, I ask you to note!). Isn't it wonderful?

Last I heard a 1.1 patch was in progress back in May, over 7 months ago.

The game crashed in the tutorial. Froze on some menu, button commands "click" but not actual response. Game also crashed and the volume went mad when I went back to get some screenshots. 3 times. the most annoying is the combat crash that happens every 3rd combat or so, gets boring to refight over and over after awhile.

This software is broken, been eyeing this game for months, it's the sort of thing I like but stayed away because of horrible reviews. Took a chance on it because of a big sale price. Sadly, all is fail. The reviews are right. The raw code for this game was written by a spasmatic monkey.
