Fictorum 0.9.6 Beta

Major Change: Event Improvements

The scroll holder isn’t final yet, but this gives a good idea of what our new event window will look like. We’re really happy with how it’s come out.

Also we’ve added a significant amount of new events to Fictorum. This should help give more variety as you play through Fictorum.

Major Change: Visual Effect Improvements

Chip has been hard at work making sure Fictorum looks as good as we can make it and has made some modifications to some of our visual effects.
