Development Update: It’s graduation day!
The beta for Sanctuary in Time launched on Itch in September 2022. And version 0.3.6 represents the seventh major content update that’s been released for the game since launch. I now consider Sanctuary in Time to be on solid enough footing to graduate from the beta stage of development and enter the final release. Woo-hoo! They grow up so fast.
New Feature: Boon events!
These are unique, one-time events that can occur during the lifetime of your settlement. Each one presents the player with a choice between depositing a lump-sum reward that’s been discovered, or investing that reward in an upgrade that can result in small bonuses over time. These bonuses, if unlocked, will be displayed in the new BOONS section of the weekly turn report.
Interface Updates: A whole new look!
Several visual updates have been made to the game.
Feature Update: ‘Look Closer’ option now added to dialogue events.
A new selectable option is now available in many events which allows the player to visually examine a follower in order to get a detailed description of their physical attributes, as well as their clothing (if worn), or nude body (if no clothing is worn).
Feature Update: Gifts from wives are now based on their skills.
Previously, if one of the player’s wives chose to leave a gift for them, the nature of the gift itself was purely random. Now, however, that’s no longer the case. Gifts left by wives will now be chosen based on the skills possessed by those wives.
Feature Update: Partner likes/dislikes of date activities are now more in-depth!
The initial launch of the dating activity featured a simple, but effective system by which a follower would either like, dislike, or feel neutral about different date activities. Now, however, that system has been significantly overhauled for a more nuanced experience.
Implemented a new logfile system to output error messages (as well as general info) to a text file that will help in diagnosing end-user issues encountered when running the application. This is a simple text file which can be opened with a text editor, so its contents can be copy-and-pasted when problems are encountered.
