Scattered Evil 1.4 released

Scattered Evil 1.4 is now available on SourceForge and ModDB.

New features and bugfixes:

  • New sounds:
    • The lonely male voice actor with the half dozen soundbites got some major help with 20 additional voice actors and hundreds of new soundbites. Now not every guy in Charybdea sounds the same.
    • New music tracks, including the remix of a Raven original and more variety for the travel map.
  • New maps:
    • This release removes all old third party dungeon maps. New features include walking on tightropes, moving objects in 3 dimensions to solve puzzles and exotic environments including floating rocks and really big statues.
    • All-new dungeons:
      • Donas Monument
      • Iarmusc Dungeons
      • Lernal Cave
      • The Excavation
      • Thryas Reservoir
      • Yerdel Cave
  • Visual improvements:
    • A few important NPCs now have custom sprites. This also allowed us to further “zoom in” on their faces during a conversation.
    • The quality of a number of commonly used textures has been improved.
    • New glass effect allowing for more realistic mirrors and vitrines.
  • Gameplay improvements:
    • The travel map now only uses the four primary directions so there is no more need to try and press two arrow keys at the same time.
    • The full screen HUD now shows the most relevant information neatly grouped into a corner of the screen.
  • Other changes:
    • Extensive attribution list included. Let us know if there is anything missing or in need of correction.
    • Fixed a number of reported bugs.
    • Added default bindings for pausing the game (F5) and zooming in/out (Z).
