The 0.5.4.0a update for Dary's Legend has been released.

Apart from our personal roadmap we've also read all feedback/comments that we found in order to improve the game the best way we can.
So among several tweaks and fixes there are three main features worth mentioning.

Caldron and crafting

Caldron's where already available in the previous build but where disabled. On this build we finished them and you can now boil a few recipes. We decided to share how it works.

Step 1 - You need to find a book of Recipes. Each book might contain a different one. This can be found in several places.

Step 2 - After picking one up, just right click to learn it.

Step 3 - You need to find and use one of these.

Step 4 - Combine the ingredients, or just use the "make" button to auto-complete.

And that's it. We'll be adding recipes and tweaking this on next builds so stay tuned.

In Game options

Another new feature worth mentioning is the new in game options menu.

It's now possible to have the top bar always visible or in auto-hide mode (default). Also a nice slider to control the overall walking movement of our character. For now this affects walking and attacking animations. We tweaked a bit the animations but felt that each person will probably have a different value they feel more comfortable with, so you can choose between 1.0x to 2.0x of speed. Personally we've been playing at 1.3x.

Wait turn

You can now press the Enter key to skip/wait until your next turn. Although this is a simple change it can be used strategically in many situations.
