This month marks Red Trees' third anniversary. In light of this, I've spent the past month or so working on a pretty big update to the game: the version 1.5 update.
So what's new in 1.5?
All of the music and most of the sound effects have been updated.
Certain visuals have been updated, particularly those pertaining to the UI. Most of the original character and map art remains intact, however.
Dialogue has been added, and a some sections of dialogue have been altered.
There's a brand new custom pause menu which brings with it a couple of new features: the ability to view the item you're holding in detail, and a log of all the characters you've met thus far.
You can run on outdoor maps now.
... And various other minor changes which aren't significant enough to list.
Version 1.5 is out now and available for download! You can get it here, or you can get the version with the VX Ace RTP bundled in over at the game's itch.io page. If you preferred the old version, though, not to worry; it will also remain available for download here.
Finally, I just want to say that I'm incredibly grateful for the support that has been shown to Red Trees over the past 3 years. It may only be a small and insignificant game in the grand scheme of things, but every single message I've received from someone telling me that they enjoyed it has meant the world to me. Version 1.5 is, to me, the best version of this game that I could make while still retaining still retaining its heart, and now that it's here, I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed working on it.
