- The Invincible is Starward Industries’ debut game, featuring a sci-fi setting.
- The title is based on Stanisław Lem’s novel of the same name but isn’t a one-to-one adaptation.
- The devs have released a new hotfix for The Invincible, making a myriad of fixes and changes.
The Invincible isn’t your average walking simulator with a regular mystery to solve—it’s a gripping tale told from the perspective of astrobiologist Yasna, culminated by the talent that has formerly worked for studios such as CD Projekt Red and Techland. As the game enters its post-launch phase, the devs have rolled out its very first hotfix thanks to player feedback, making a bundle of new changes to the title.
“Big thank you to every astronaut who has submitted bugs/feedback, and thank you all for taking part in The Invincible’s cosmic adventure! Since the release we have been working hard to solve as much of the reported issues as possible,” reads the official blog post on Steam. Hotfix 1.0.1 primarily removes progress blockers from The Invincible and brings a bundle of performance fixes as well.
As per the developer, most of the changes introduced are due to the players reporting bugs on sight, thereby helping the devs out in polishing the game further. For Steam Deck users, you’ll now observe a bigger font size set as the default to enhance readability. Here is a rundown of some of the other changes that made the cut this time around:
- Checkpoints loading improvements.
- Fixed the bug with Yasna’s four hands and blocked the detector at the beginning area.
- Fixed the rare bug with controller/keyboard focus in the main menu.
- Fixed problems with cancel/exit default input and binding.
- Fixed a camera collision with the player when using photo mode.
- Fixed overlapping dialogue lines in the base area.
- Fixed the incorrect loading of sound effects in the City area.
- Fixed rover speed parameters.
- Performance and optimization fixes (e.g. graphic settings, FPS drops, texture loading).
- Lighting and shadow fixes.
- Some animation and camera parameters fixes and polishing.
On a side note, The Invincible’s release has been admirable so far, with various gaming-focused media outlets holding the game in high regard, praising the title for its incredible pacing, great voice acting, and terrific plotline that engages players right from the get-go. Apart from that, the devs have also promised ultrawide screen resolution support for the title in “later patches,” so do stay tuned for the latter as well.
