Hey guys, dev here.. WAT? Yes, dev here.
Hello each one of you. It's been a loooong long time since last time I've posted something here and some of you might even remember me around so does the other dev under the name "lprunk".

Anyway, I'm here to tell you all that we did NOT forget this game and we would never ever abandon a game that we love. We all know (not just you, but each one of us here at our studio) that the game currently have some bugs, some people are crashing and some achievements are bugged as well. So here we go.

- Achievements:
Well yes, some of them are bugged indeed. All achievements that have the "tracking" are kind of bugged. The tracking wasn't currently showing the correct value but most of them are working indeed (even without tracking). We made an update recently for the Beta version and we are testing it out so we can release as soon as possible.

We have deleted an achievement "Epic Potion" because it was an achievement that came from the iOS version and it wasn't suppose to be ever at Steam (an early version of the game, the Enchanter worked likes the Blacksmith and its level was raised too and once the Enchanter reached its last level, an Epic Potion could be bought and used so, yes, this does not exist anymore).

Achievements that can't be achieved in the current version are: All Masters (Group of Masters), and All Maps (The Explorer). If you have problems with any other achievement or even trying to do Rise From Your Grave (make sure you don't have enough money to resurrect any of your characters to get into the Game Over screen) I would like to ask you to post it in this thread and I'll try to reach you by any means so we can check this out.
Group of Masters: It gets stuck into 2/4 and doesn't track at all even buying all masters.
The Explorer: The number is suppose to be 35 and not 32. But something is going on besides that. (if you'd like the full list of the 35 maps, get in touch)

- Mavericks Users:
Is the game still crashing? We are facing some problems to build and encapsule the game to Steam Platform so I'm sorry for that, we should fix it soon too. If your game isn't crashing at Mavericks then hell yes, even better.

- Bugs:
Well, I don't need to say that the game has a few minor bugs and these bugs will not be shipped so, yeah, pretty obvious haha.

- Knights of Pen and Paper got abandoned?
HELL, NO! It was not. We are not currently making any new content for the moment because we have all our team working in our next game. Unfortunately the update patch is late and that's it, we're sorry.

- Microtransactions
NO MORE MICROTRANSACTIONS!

- Redeem Code
This is not related to the key you get once you get the game. The key you get is to register at Paradox's forums. The Redeem Code functionality is just for gold purposes and I can make you codes to receive/lose gold in game. Wanna gamble with me later?

- Twister Carpet
Oh please, would you read the description of the item before using it? It's not because it gives you 30% extra experience points that the item is better than your other ones. It gets your character confused and they will auto attack whatever monster they see first and won't let you control them. We have made this because some people wanted to grind things but wanted to watch a video while battling or whatever. So you just start the batte with a monster or two and let your game aside. Simple haha

- General topics
I myself keep an eye on many threads started here and I know that some people were getting mad about their topics getting deleted. I don't know if this is a dev/admin feature but we can see who deleted their topics. There are some people that posted and deleted their own topics and there were some topics that were deleted by community hub admins. Remember, this is a forum to communicate and not to disseminate hate speech or even threat other people if they disagree to your opinions.

I'll really try to get more active here and will try to keep posting so you don't even think we abandoned the community or the game again. And by the way, as the other user posted here (Firehawk), I may be reached by our general contact email which is contato@beholdstudios.com.br and I must say that is pretty easier to contact us by that email than posting here or complaining about the game/bugs/etc elsewhere haha. I am the guy who tries to answer instantly every e-mail but well, I have too many other things to do too so if you don't get replied really fast, don't worry, you will soon, I reply to every email and will keep doing it the best way I can.

Well I really hope you understand and I'll definitely keep an eye at this. I hope you are all doing ok and I'm sorry again for such time without posting anything around (I received some "forum guidelines" and got myself annoyed with it haha).

<3

Rise From Your Grave does actually work. I thought it was broken, too (see here ). After Dom's advice there I managed to get the achievement. Apparently it only works after you reached a certain level (3? 4? idk, tested it at something above level 5) and are too broke to revive your party.

Thanks for poiting it out, Fortunato.

Rise from your grave: Hit the Game Over screen or something like that, it means you can't have enough money to resurrect any of your characters. Knowing that, the first levels are way too cheap and nearly 0 gold to resurrect each character which makes the Game Over screen to never appears.

Gonna edit the topic, this achievement is just fine.

Do you have any plans to fix the missing dialogue bug? The game would be enjoyable if the jokes, punchlines, or even story texts actually showed reliably. Alternatively, adding a transcript of the past conversations would be a decent fix. I still have no idea what the actual plot of this game is, and I've played it to completion twice trying to get the text to fire.

GEEZ, SORRY DID WE JUST WAKE U UP FROM YOUR SLEEPY SLEEPY.....
a^ gty  [developer] Feb 10 @ 12:55pm 
Shatari, I've never seen such problem in many computers/devices I've tested the game. I believe this might be related to a vga issue. Is your vga driver updated?

Damn you dr00ds casted sleep on me. DON'T YOU EVER DO IT AGAIN.
a^ gty  [developer] Feb 10 @ 1:03pm 
We'll certainly contact Paradox about it, Lariem.
a^ gty  [developer] Feb 10 @ 1:26pm 
No, debuffs dont stack but they get their timer refreshed.
WhiteWolf334 Feb 10 @ 2:20pm 
When you relase achievements fix we should start new game, or we just obtain those achievements?
a^ gty  [developer] Feb 10 @ 2:23pm 
There will be no need to start a new game.
FireHawkX Feb 10 @ 6:41pm 
WOW, first, thank you a LOT for taking the time to write here! It is MUCH appreciated! I knew you cared, but seeing it here is nice! :)

You should put it as an important topic so it stays at the top :)

For the achievements now, there are more than 2 that currently have issues.. here is my list :

Thanks For Choosing Us <3 : I did choose all 5 of you guys, but after getting to the post game stuff, i never got it... Unless it includes the hell kitchen part as well? (i did that with my 1st game and not this one). Or perhaps we need to choose all 5 with the same class as you were using when we fought against the dev team? I only got the players not the classes...

Ain't Nobody Got Time : was doing this at the same time as the Thanks for Choosing us... did not go all the way to the kitchen... perhaps i just need to keep going?

Master of Dungeons : I did 3 or 4 of them (i did all 3 once at least) and its stuck at (1)
Dungeon Crawler : same thing as above stuck at 1...
edit : i just tried one more time to be 100% sure, i completed 1 FULL dungeon, cleared all rooms, killed the boss, exited... quit the game, waited about 5mins, still 1 for both...

Group of Masters (already noted, im at 2/4(5 in reality)
The Explorer : already noted as well stuck at 1/32 (35 you wrote above)

@a^ gty: Yes, my drivers are fully up to date.

Fire - I cant offer any insight into TFCU or ANGT other than other than visiting the dragon cave isnt necessary to achieve them - its purely the story line.

Master of Dungeons, however, should update itself somewhere around the 20-30 mark, and will register as complete after the 50 runs. - If you equip something like 14 luck necklaces, you can do a dungeon while avoiding any random encounters which makes that achievment much quicker to grind out.

No problem, FireHawk, I was going to post this as we released the update but since it was taking too long we discussed and I came here to tell you the news!

Shatari, we had some sort of problem with a very old release of the game for Android which some devices have their background flickering. We have changed the shader we were using and everything went just fine. I'm afraid you must contact Paradox Interactive so they can run their own tests about it, you may reach them at support@paradoxinteractive.com.

I'm sure it's not related to the dragon's lair or kitchen part of the game (since this quest was made just for the ones that love to grind and wanted to keep playing after beating the storyline). What was the last quest you've done in the story? Did you deliver Nabe's gift (not the crowbar)?

Same thing, this isn't related to the achievement since this is what we called "side quests". None side quests are related, the related quests are the ones that have a Star in their accept button.

The tracking isn't working in the current version, it will mark you have like 10/50 Dungeons even if you have 49/50. I encourage you to keep doing dungeons until you reach the achievement goal since it will definitely work once you reach the 50th time.

Yeah, both of these are bugged. Either the achievement tracking and the achievement itself and we are currently fixing it.

These patches take more time than what we thought because all minor bugs are forwarded to our Publisher then they need time to test then they come at us and if they see anything we need to rework on it and etc. (Not blaming anyone, just saying that it takes some time to make it 100% fully working)

Also, just pinned the thread for a few days, until the patch is released.
