Big Updates

Here is a list of some of our updates and details of went behind them.

Entity AI. The entity itself was very lax and boring in previous versions of Eight Hours. So, we had decided to update the entity to appear sooner and more often at random intervals. It also has a scaling difficulty curve based on the amount of time played in the game. This will help limit game time plays as well as induce more stress the longer it takes a player to capture all the EVPs.

Hints. Previously hints would show up and auto disappear after a few seconds. We now re-programmed the controls so that hints show for a significantly longer period of time after they are triggered. Secondly, objectives and hints are shown by default, and can be toggled on and off with the space bar (default binding).

Tutorial. A lot of feedback we observed and received was along the lines of "How do I play". So, we had worked to introduce more helpful tutorial text during gameplay at relevant moments. We hope this will help players get into the game quicker and enjoy the investigation.
