Realm of the Diggle Gods! Roadmap Post! and More…

Diggles for The Diggle God! And don't ask where that throne's been either.
Praise be to Krong, for you have participated in the Ancient Krongian ritual of the Humble Indie Bundle, and lo, the Children and the Internets are saved from poverty (to the tune of a cool $778,000.00-ish.) Lo, we hath generated over $200,000.00 for the Charities, and hath contributed to a project with many fine indie developers, some of whom are now labouring over games based on Prison Architecture. Of this, Krong mightily approves – and we have many new Dredmor players besides! All praise to Krong, et cetera.

So what else doth he have in store for you?

- 1.0.7: Now that the Humble Bundle is over, Krong is free from the chains of his period of exclusivity and is eager to spread the gospel of a new patch, with a female hero and mod support and all manner of good and crafty things besides.

But lo,

- 1.0.8: is just about done, and should be out either Thursday or Friday. So he shalt simply wait until then, and pass the savings on via Steam and Desura (and yea, to the Humble Bundle customers besides.) All praise to Krong, for he doth not force you to run the auto-updater more so than usual.

and yea:

- Linux Humble Bundle users: let it be known, Krong feels your pain from his throne covered in the flesh of the finest penguins. We hath addressed your issues, and lo, we hath rolled our fixes into Dredmor patch 1.0.8 – for it is good patch, and it doth fix the random crashes and the general instability.

Last but not least, there is an expansion. It is spoken of in the words of the great prophecy, wherein dwarves with giant beards do toil over the finest of new levels and features. Soon! Soon a sign shall come to the Youtubes, in the form of a great Trailer, and the chosen of Krong shalt follow the hyperlink to the trailer wherein all his mysteries shalt be revealed, including a release date which is much, MUCH closer than you think.

And yea, the name of the expansion shalt be:

The Realm of the Diggle Gods.

That is all. As you were.

    Hooray! I’m not sure how Desura deals with expansion packs… perhaps it could count as a paid mod?
    Maybe that, or count DoD+exp as a new game which people who already own the game get for a discount (the actual price of the expansion) and people who don’t own either can buy it for the total price?

    As long as the expansion is on Desura I’m happy!

    • Kyo says:

      I hope it’s not a paid mod, because the current number of mods for Linux is zero and I doubt this will change anytime soon.

        Oh well, they’re not likely to suddenly abandon linux now after how much support they’ve been showing it. Whatever they go with, I’m sure there will be linux.

    Whoa I can’t wait, it’s really awesome to see Dredmor is still getting love :D . But if 1.0.8 is going to be around thursday, when is 1.0.7 for Steam users? Or they will be merged?

    { reply }
    • I says:

      I have the same question. I’ve seen on multiple DoD wikis that say 1.0.7 is already released, but Steam won’t update it from 1.0.6. I even tried reinstalling, but to no avail. Can anyone help me out?

  8. Thorvald says:

    Changelogs pretty please? It’d be nice to see what bugs are fixed. I purchased the HIB but have been using the steam 1.0.6, wondering whether some problems I’m seeing were already fixed.

    Wait… Expansion Imminent?! Oh, that sly sly krong, he waited for 1.08 it on purpose to make us want to give praises of gold and silver on his altars… and you know what… I think it’ll work.

    Glad to see a female avatar. Giggling at the inclusion of the giant eyebrows.

  18. estik says:

    Come on, give that patch to everyone.
    I do understand that you wanted to make something “exclusive” for the bundle, what I don’t understand is why the early buyers of your game have to wait waaaay longer to get the same stuff.

  19. Eduardo says:

    So if I bought the Humble Blunde, how do I download the patch? Do I have to use Desura?

  20. Arne says:

    so the week is over and I am still waiting for 1.0.8. Cant continue my quest until the patch is released, because the game always crashes when I am entering floor 3. So please be as fast as possible with your release. (Yes I am playing under linux)

    • I posted about this on the Twitterfeed but apparently the status update didn’t make it as far as the webpage. (Alternately, you’re not following the Twitter. Why not? It’s incoherent!)

      We had 1.0.7 ready to go for Friday, but then our Mac build machine died and we spent most of the day running around trying to get it repaired, and figuring out how to actually pack the expansion for Steam. By the time that was over, Valve’s offices were shuttered for the day. So 1.0.8 will be sent out this afternoon, and distributors should have it on Monday.

      We’re still finalizing the details for expansion pack sales, but Steam has everything they need to start selling it, and we’re figuring it out with Desura.

    I am also a humble bundle linux user, and I would also like a download link for the 1.0.8 Deb release.

    • Jim Salter says:

      Same here – looking anxiously for 1.0.8 for Linux; HiB customer.

      Also, looking for an answer on the resolution issue for multiple monitors on Linux – I used to have the game allowing me to choose from several resolutions, but randomly today it only wants to offer me 3360×1050, which is of course not really workable.

      Can we get a fix for this please? Maybe have windowed mode allow you to edit a config.xml directly, or something? It’s very frustrating.
