Steam Trading Cards for Dungeons of Dredmor; Dredmor Patch 1.1.4 Up!

EDIT: A small fix for a (relatively minor) collection of broken save games has just hit Steam. If anybody else has any problems, please let us know. — Nicholas

I burned out on trading cards at around the Magic: The Gathering’s Fourth Edition (because once you play Leviathan in a real game, is there really anything left to do in M:TG?) but I figure if we’re going to do this trading card thing we have to do it right and provide our lovely, ravening fans with something they’d really enjoy.

So! We went and commissioned Stephanie Larsen (who, by the way, with Chestnut St. Pixel Foundry created the Gaslamp Games logo) to do five six new illustrations of various Dredmorian Subjects. Fun was had!

I’ve also tied the proverbial rudder-wheel of the good ship Gaslamp Art Team with the Rope of Neglect and taken a week off Clockwork Empires to paint five Steam profile backgrounds exploring themes in Dredmor ranging from “recycling existing art but being too obsessive over detail to not repaint it completely” to “meticulously accurate renderings of hematite”. Because we know what you like.

There are also a bunch of random badges and emoticons and Diggles and things.

They should be on Steam. Now go enjoy yourselves!

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! IT IS NOW PROGRAMMER TIME

Nicholas has now taken over the blogpost to bring you A NEW DREDMOR PATCH. Finally, the damn thing is out of beta and we are ready to bring it to you, our users. Enjoy new features such as THE FOLLOWING CHANGES:

- Diggles now actually dig!
- FIXED: Dual wielding items could cause infinite status buffs.
- “Conversion” support. Items can now augment existing item definitions if they exist. See the mod request thread for syntax.
- FIXED: monsters attacking your summons left over from another level.
- FIXED: random crash w/aquatic monster spawning on entering a new room
- FIXED: mods with cooldown skills not working
- FIXED: bug with Essence’s Essential Skills Pack where kung fu-ing a door will crash to desktop
- FIXED: achievements button misaligned
- FIXED: Steamworks support for x86 Linux
- FIXED: other issues w/x86 and AMD64 Linux builds
- FIXED: Using the Lutefisk Cube on itself in the Pocket Dimension is now Even Cuter.
- Multiple scrollbars.
- FIXED: Inventory filters.
- FIXED: Wand repair achievement.
- FIXED: some monsters can no longer yield XP/treasure/zorkmids
- FIXED: crust tooltips not showing negative damage buffs.
- FIXED: Steam publisher working again. We think.
- FIXED: skills can now require you to have a certain sort of weapon (or shield!) equipped.
- FIXED: held item may disappear when trying to pick up item
- FIXED: stupid broken teaser graffiti
- FIXED: some other stuff? Things? Gah.

Enjoy! (Again, all new stuff is contingent upon us pulling a lever and having Valve process it. Caveat emptor.)

    This update appears to have broken old save files – the game now crashes when I try to load my save from last night.

    I am having the same problem as Twinge. My most recent save games (from two days ago) are not loading and cause the game to crash. I did have two or three mods active for those save games, but the game always crashes no matter what combination of mods/no mods I choose.

    I’m not too worried because I just started playing but I’d rather not start over if I can help it.

    BTW, I love this game! It’s such a great way to unwind after work. Thanks for the fun!

    Please say thank-you to Stephanie for the wonderful new art. Some people might not stop to think that someone has to take time to draw this stuff, and the results are lovely. I found some people on steam didn’t know that you could click twice on the cards to get desktop-sized pictures from them. The diggles one is exceptionally wonderful!

    Simply amazing! The artwork is so cool. Thanks for a new wallpapers pack and stuff. If I were a diggle I would hate you so much :3.

    Sweet, I can’t wait to make the badges for this game! Usually I just sell the cards on the marketplace. The bugfixes are great too, and the diggles digging animation is so adorable!

    Hey Guys,

    When will the new patch be available on humblebundle.com?
    I bought DoD with the “Introversion Bundle” some time ago, and currently only the 1.1.3 patch is hosted there.. :(
