An update for Auditorium went live this evening. This update fixes the end-of-game announcement thanking users for playing the demo version of the game; credits now roll instead. This update also significantly improves upon graphics quality at higher resolutions. Graphics are now rendered using the GPU instead of the CPU, allowing for smoother pixel interpolation of Auditorium's native 830x466 resolution. The added GPU support now makes Steam overlay support possible under Windows XP, and resolves issues pertaining to screenshots as well.
As for Cipher Prime's Kickstarter campaign
, there are only a few short days left to help make the cooperative multi-player sequel to Auditorium
possible. For the game to be funded, the Auditorium 2: Duet Kickstarter
project needs to successfully reach its goal of $60,000 before the deadline on March 30. If it falls short, no funds will be collected or awarded. If it reaches or exceeds its goal, Cipher Prime will then have the opportunity to create an even bigger and more beautiful experience than was previously possible with Auditorium. We need your help, though.
Please consider making a contribution to the Auditorium 2: Duet Kickstarter
