Fictorum 0.8.5 Patch Notes

Major Changes

Knockdown System

Characters can now be knocked down by the force of your spells without dying. Further, with this system, the rag-doll physics for all characters is now improved.

New Abilities

Aegis

Using the same power that shield the Nexuses, the Fictorum is able to cast an Aegis around himself, making him invulnerable to all damage

Shockwave

Shockwave creates a force pulse around the player which can knockdown enemies all around the player.

Arc

A concentrated telekinetic pulse sending enemies in front of the Fictorum flying.

Perks

Your blood, sweat, and tears will no longer be spilled in vain as you advance to new chapters! Each chapter, beginning at chapter two, will offer your character a choice of perks to choose from. These will include health, mana regeneration, and other advantages.

Perk Choices


Improved Foliage

We’ve slightly improved our foliage on all tilesets to make the world a little less barren.

Verdant


Winter Landscape


Desert Landscape
