  • Optimized some various parts near the hotel.


  • When you go in the hut outside to pickup the lantern it will now spawn one enemy instead of two.

  • Some of the subtitles doesn't show up for every voice over.

The future

It is over a year ago since TFO got on Steam, it received harsh critics mainly because it had PewDiePie references and it was rather hard. I intended to add more stuff in this update, time is not on my side unfortunately. The next version of TFO will most likely include the sequel, stay tuned for more.

Source Code

I've also released the source code on my GitHub page for those of you who'd be interested in learning/using some of my work.


I tried out the new version, and it has gotten a lot better since it first came to Steam.

I'll write up a review once I get the time.
