HopFrog’s Forager released last week and has seen a pretty decent reaction on Steam. It’s been receiving consistent updates as well, with the latest, patch v1.0.2, providing fixes for players stuck in objects/water. There is some bad news for those who shut down their computer while playing the game, however. Your save is pretty much corrupted.
It’s possible to delete one’s save data by simply opening the game, deleting the saves, and then hitting play. But corrupted saves seem to be related to the game auto-saving when shutting down. As a result, players are asking for a manual save option to possibly prevent this.
Other quality of life features are straightforward, like the maximum resource spawn numbers being slightly lowered again. The coin counter has also been updated to distinguish between quadrillions and quintillions for some of the big spenders out there. You can check out the full list of bug fixes and improvements below. Forager is currently available for PC, but will be coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4 at a later time.
Forager v1.0.2 Patch Notes
General Notes / Reminders
- For players who are getting stuck in water/objects, we are now testing a new feature which will attempt to free you when loading a save. If you get stuck, simply exit to menu and reload the save!
- Our last patch’s fix for the rainbow puzzle only pertains to save files that have not already lost mushrooms. There are a few issues with the rainbow puzzle (most notably how it is inaccessible to colorblind players), and we are currently discussing how we wish to address this. We hope to update you on this soon!
- If your computer shuts down while playing Forager, and your save files no longer open, there is nothing we can do to fix this! A computer shutdown, while the game is saving, will forever corrupt the savefiles (this is why games ask you not to turn off the machine while the game saves, by the way!). If you are having trouble deleting your save data, open the game, delete the saves, then press the “PLAY” button on the main menu.
- The Waterproof feat is obtainable right now, but due to a bug, the feat only checks for completion when you place a landfill, not a bridge. To get around this, just make sure that your final block placed is landfill. We will look into fixing this in the future, and also making it easier to find your last missing water tiles!
- Some users have reported that they are not getting Steam achievements. Most of these users have had the issue resolved by enabling their Steam overlay. We will try to see if there are ways we can work around this! Currently, an achievement will only unlock if Steam gets the request when you first get the achievement, but we will look into having Steam check them all when you load your saves in the future!
