Things move fast when you're reaching a deadline at the Guildhall.

Hymn of the Sands is a project by fourteen graduate students at the Guildhall at SMU. The whole project is about eighteen weeks long, give or take, and we have less than three weeks left. Which means that if you have a chance to give Beta feedback, now is the time.

We've been giving our little 40-minute game some of those finishing touches. Some things that got complained about, some things that got fleshed out, and some things that got rebalanced for difficulty.

We added a little bit of voiceover, reworked a major ability, and have gone over the game's visuals again with our artists' brushes. Plus, now after you play, our beta questionnaire should open so you can give us more of that precious feedback for our last sprint to the finish line.

So enjoy our 100% free game, and please share it with your friends!

I would like to be able to remap the keys, because I cannot switch to the good keybord as I want, and the WASD keys are ZQSD inexplicably. If I switch the French keybord, no key function at all any more.

I managed to do this in the options files in the Engine/Config folder.
