Episode 5 is now available, meaning the complete game is available for download! A day early, no less! Here is what has changed in this version:

-It's the final episode! Multiple endings await!
-Post-game content includes new bounty hunts and a new Splice to explore.
-The damage estimation value is now hidden if your target is unscanned or out of range.
-You can now toggle the scrolling "fog" effects on or off. Turning it off can improve performance on some maps. This option is available from the "arrow" console on Ring-0 where the cursor speed is adjusted. Use the SHIFT key on this screen to toggle the setting.
-You can now enable cursor memory for last weapon choice (persists for the current turn) and last target choice (persists throughout battle). These options can be toggled from the "W" console on Ring-0 and in the Machinatorium.
-When you craft an X-Type (P)roperty Defense weapon of sufficiently high quality, there is now a free defense boost of its type as an added effect! (NOT retroactive). Also note that the Quality rating is based only off the Property and Type components used.
-Player character defense values are now more effective in mitigating damage.
-Fixed an issue where added effects would not properly trigger for enemies with multiple weapons.
-Some bosses now have special added effects that trigger much more often.
-Player added effects on weapons should now trigger much more frequently.
-The "Pierce" added effect has been enhanced. At its highest level, it should trigger 100% of the time. Note that this works both ways!
-If your leader is defeated by an enemy who attacks multiple times, said enemy should no longer continue to attack the blank space.
-Fixed a few glitchy Typelog fragments.
-The merit "By a Thread" should now trigger properly.
-Fixed a lockup bug if you tried to release a certain captive during Episode 3.
-Fixed a mislinked node on The Collector's map.
-Fixed an instance where the player could be trapped in an encounter loop in Episode 3, Mission 2.
-There was an issue where crafting a weapon from a bonus code could cause the system to corrupt weapon data and make a crafted weapon a clone of your previously crafted weapon. Don't worry if that doesn't make sense, because I think I've fixed it, but be on guard and let me know if you notice anything strange with your weapon collection!
-Deirdre's initial Personal Trust will now correctly change depending on certain decisions made.
-Several typos fixed.

A big thank-you once again to my myriad of supporters, testers, critics, players, and readers up to this point, and those still to come! Making a game completely by yourself guarantees a complete mess as the final result, so I am eternally grateful for all the help and suggestions and support and bug reports I've gotten.

WAAHOO!! I can't wait, thanks for all your hard work and congratulations and getting everything finished and out the door <3
I've been looking forward to this more than I've been looking forward to any commercial release. Keep doing what you're doing, Deltree.

Congrats! \(^_^)/
Congratulations Space Lizard! Now, shall I go see The Dark Knight Rises, or spend the rest of the day playing I Miss the Sunrise?
I would say that playing this game would be a far more entertaining use of your time. But then again, I have a bias against modern Hollywood films...

Also, I forgot to post about how good this game is before, but yeah. It is.

Cheers, Deltree. Downloading now--was a big fan of the first episode and decided to wait it out for the remainder.

Yay!!! Thanks so much! What are you going to do now that you have finished?
Congratulations! Now you have not just one epic game under your belt, but two! Incredible!

Looking forward to The Drop.
Good job, Deltree! I'll be sure to play this!
Oh, by the way, I just updated the TV Tropes pages with information from episode 5. So, uh, you might want to keep away from them if you haven't finished the game.

Thanks y'all! I wold have said so sooner but my internet connection went out at home so it's probably good that I uploaded early.

I'm working on a roguelike as mentioned above called The Drop, set in the same universe so to speak. I will have a game page up for it soon.

Of course I ended up doing the latter, for 6 hours straight! I enjoyed every second of it too. I'm still on episode 4 and the story is getting better and better.
Oh, by the way, Deltree, who were the three player characters who were cut? You said on your blog that Amalas was one, but what about the other two?

(Also, what's the name of the novel that Luke is from?)

It was four, to make an even 20. The first two were Willis and Ral, actually, and the third was a LAC female named Tonan LaLune whose story got folded into Deirdre's. I know I'll catch holy hell for dropping so many females from the bunch. If I'd planned things better, I would have replaced Luke with her, if that's any consolation. Screw episodic games. Never again.

And I dare not say where he came from; it's not published (yet) anyway.

What? NO WAY! I love Amalas. =(
Willis and Ral were originally going to be playable? O_O Fascinating. I can see how that wouldn't have worked out storywise, though.

I know I'll catch holy hell for dropping so many females from the bunch.

The playable character gender ratio was near-perfect, actually -- the 4 male/1 female ratio with the lacertians was all that screwed it up. Unfortunate, but could be worse. This game is already a massive, massive improvement over TR in terms of gender politics. (A pity that gender-swapping the Progenitor wasn't feasible, that would have been interesting.)

Tonan LaLune sounds interesting; I was rather disappointed that Jazzy was the only female LAC. How was her story "folded into" Dierdre's? Was she supposed to be from Purity Point (or something similar) as well?

What? NO WAY! I love Amalas. =(

Me too! D: I guess it just wasn't feasible story-wise, though. I mean, who would take over her duties if she was in your fleet?

Edit: Huh, I just noticed that there's no "story so far" update for this episode. Are you planning to add one later?

Basically Tonan would have been a surface-dweller who built her own craft to escape to a new life. Then I went with the direction that surface life is rare if even practiced at all, so she fell by the wayside.

I do not wish to add an entry for Episode 5, for hopefully obvious reasons.
Massive congratulations on finishing Deltree, I haven't played this since either ep 1 or 2 was released but I've decided to start a new game now that the full game is done :D



Deltree, you are in a whole different league. Wish I knew how you were so productive. Cheers on finishing IMTS!! Looking forward to your next game.
