Hey spellcasters—We’ve been working hard on the latest updates to Fictorum and are really excited to share them with you! The most important of these are unlockable starting titles, auras for the player and champions, and world interactions.

Fictorum v.0.8.2 Patch Notes[edit | edit source]

The latest version of Fictorum will be making it’s way out to Steam and IndieGameStand later today!

New Starting Titles[edit | edit source]

New Starting Titles can now be unlocked on the Game Over screen and are awarded based on your playthrough! The unlock methods are very rudimentary and will be improved as time progresses, but the new feature feels great!

Auras[edit | edit source]

We want to keep adding more variety for both play-styles and champions that you’ll encounter in-world. The next logical step for us was to create auras and make them usable by player and enemies. We have plans to make more auras, but the ones we have in-game right now are:

  • Burning aura
  • Chilling aura

World Interaction[edit | edit source]

Explorers rejoice! The Fictorum can now interact with various items in-world—F key/X button by default (Rebind action bindings to take effect)

  • Enchanting tables (rare)
  • Vendors (very rare)
  • Health potions
  • Random items
  • “Opening” doors

New Levels[edit | edit source]

A few more levels and events have been added.
