3D Platformer Fumiko! - New content in upcoming patch & mac release coming soon!

If you haven't checked out Fumiko! yet, there'll be some good reasons to do it soon. With the new update, some new exciting content will get added to the game.

New Homeworlds in Hyperion

The new homeworlds in Hyperion are an addition to the existing 5 homeworlds. A homeworld is something the NPCs in Fumiko! are renting - They are acting kind of like a player home. The owners are able to buy virtual furniture and place it in their homeworld. The existing homeworlds are giving you an interesting optional experience that you shouldn't miss out during your time in the social hub - Hyperion.

To give Hyperion a more social aspect, there'll 6 new homeworlds representing casual social life to give Hyperion even more depth. There'll be families hanging out together, kids spending time learning emotes in a digital school and in general more dialogue and interaction with the world of Fumiko.

Check out the animated versions of these homeworlds!

Dropdown Ability

There will be a dropdown ability! I'll try to introduce this ability as early as possible into the game. While its use isn't required, it adds a lot mobility to fumiko and can save your life when chased by enemies.

It's best to see it in action:

Memory fragments in main menu

If you're already playing Fumiko, you'll be familiar with memory fragments. These well hidden pieces of story are scattered throughout the game and will shine a lot of light on the lore. With the upcoming update, the main menu will now display all memory pieces you found (shared between savegames) during your time playing the game. Feel the progress you've made and more importantly - read all of them taking as much time as you want without having to pause your gameplay.

Mac version in testing

I'm currently testing Fumiko! on a macbook air and so far everything's going well. I'm generally pleased by performance and stability. The mac version will release after the patch comes out, but not too far away. So watch out mac players!

There'll be also other quality of life changes and tweaks to the game to make it more accessible and fun to play.

Also don't miss out on this fantastic review of Fumiko! and the recent interview.
