Of course, these outfits will stay on your account for when we push the update to the live branch in the near future. Today we are announcing the first 2 outfits which are for Zara! We plan to add more outfits in the future. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/7dff8acf9f0ae3dbb53a082c9b81c76ef13d2768.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/ba61c5d13510918830f9bcab9026253d8f93d038.jpg 1.4 Changelog Adds new outfit preview UI to lobby.

Twitter: @DEVOUR_GAME Discord: 1.3: Batteries, Revive Improvements and More!May 13, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsWe're excited to release update 1.3 today. Please read below for more details on all of the changes. Batteries DEVOUR was designed to be a difficult game; due to the condensed length of each playthrough, we felt it was important to offer a challenging experience to players. However, now that DEVOUR has grown in popularity, we are noticing that the game can be a little too punishing for some players at times. Especially in Nightmare mode! With that, we're releasing the new Batteries item as an optional game mechanic. Batteries can be used to instantly recharge your UV flashlight, as well as giving you a bonus amount of charge across all the difficulty modes. Check below the specifics. Batteries will only spawn on the map if enabled by the host. You can pick up and drop Batteries just like any other item. To consume a Battery, press the R key. Once consumed, the UV is fully recharged, with a bonus amount of charge. (Normal: 160%, Hard: 100%, Nightmare: 60%) Bonus UV flashlight charge is indicated with an orange colour and does not regenerate. Batteries will respawn on the map after being consumed. There are a maximum number of batteries available in the game world at one time, including those held in players' hands but not yet consumed. (Normal: 4, Hard: 3, Nightmare: 2). {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/d73c4332183c40a4468804c330dea0712f2ef07a.png Revive improvements If you've played DEVOUR, you've probably experienced a slighty janky behaviour when reviving. With this update, we completely reworked the revive logic to iron out some of these bugs. What's next? We know that most of you are interested to find out when DEVOUR's next map will release. Our aim is to release it before Halloween 2021. It will be our most ambitious map yet, and we will definitely share more details with you in the near future! As always, please keep in mind that we are a small team and creating new maps takes a huge amount of work. We're also working on some other features which we want to release in the coming weeks. These include: New playable cult member 'April'. New character outfits (separate purchase) Farmhouse full audio redesign 1.3.0 Changelog Added Dutch and Indonesian language settings. Added Credits to the main menu. Added a new Mute Jump Scares audio setting. Fix for voice chat sometimes not working in lobbies. Displays a status message in the chat section when another player picks up a key. Fix for a hole in the world under the stairs near the Asylum fireplace. AI now correctly paths on the Asylum ritual area platform. Fixed a couple of spots on the Asylum map where Molly could not reach players. Fix for an edge case when Molly would scream on a client's machine but not on the host. Improved tutorials for AI staggering and calming down mechanics. Molly no longer renders red eyes constantly in Nightmare mode. Improvements made to both Farmhouse and Asylum environments to prevent being pushed through some walls when player collisions is turned on. Tweaks to the hos...v1.2.6 (Investigative build)May 2, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsWe are aware of a rare issue where Molly will run around with a knocked out player in her hand and not drop them.

Within the disturbing rat-infested halls of a barbaric, hidden asylum you'll experience the electrifying thrill of being hunted by the demonically possessed fan-favourite Molly Jackson, as well as scores of deranged inmates. Our top priority in creating The Asylum was to get exciting new content to you as soon as possible. We decided not to change too many gameplay mechanics in comparison to our first map, The Farmhouse. However, The Asylum has a drastically different visual style, greatly increased graphics quality (including motion captured animations!) and it also includes a new creepy and immersive audio experience thanks to our new regular team member Steve Brooks. New Character: Kai We'd like to introduce you to our new, playable character Kai. He's generally a pretty laid back guy, except for when he's being chased by demon spawn.. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/694f3d50a4f35e0f98929104a1c3bd00ce7d2771.jpg Upcoming: Maps, Cosmetics, Characters And More! We're excited to announce that work has already begun on future maps for DEVOUR. We plan to release the next map before Halloween. Stay tuned for a sneak peak! Everyone loves game cosmetics and we're working really hard to bring more to DEVOUR. Other than just robes, we will be releasing completely new outfits for your favourite characters, as well as entirely new playable characters in future updates. Lastly, we will be releasing Steam Trading Cards for DEVOUR in the near future, so keep an eye out for more announcements. Thank You Finally, a thank you from the whole team for the support our community has shown since DEVOUR's release in January. From our dedicated Discord mods, to all the regular streamers/content creators, to everyone who's bought and played DEVOUR so far: we appreciate you. Now, get your spare pair of underpants ready... Molly's waiting. 1.2 Changelog In addition to the new features described above, we have made a bunch of bug fixes and improvements to the overall game. Custom server names have been removed. The player's Steam name is now used automatically. Performance improvements to The Farmhouse, especially when running on Very Low settings. Animals run less predictably when fleeing.

Straight Back Games is proud to be releasing its second map for DEVOUR within 3 months of the game's original launch. It has taken a huge effort, as we're only a small development team, but we're committed to delivering you new content - now, and in the future. Thank you all for your continued support. You're awesome, and we can't wait for you to be terrified all over again on April 21st. Twitter: @DEVOUR_GAME Discord: 22, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsIn this patch we've fixed an edge case where respawning after falling through the world (typically due to having player collisions with high ping) would cause issues with AI not being able to target players. Nothing else to see here. Back to the grind!Dev Update: The Asylum Map Ritual AreaMar 19, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsWe know you've been waiting for more details on The Asylum, so here's a first look at an important area of DEVOUR's upcoming new map! As you now know, Molly is the one who'll be hunting you down in The Asylum. As well as looking and moving differently to Anna, she also has her own unique story. After banishing the demon Azazel, Molly was committed to a barbaric asylum and spent the next 3 years being strapped down and subjected to grotesque electroshock treatments. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/3f780c6d74fe9d7f0950ebaa4c447c4916392c15.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/6bea61101bae3196ec42a7993631e19b8c7ea6db.png As her mind deteriorated, Molly began experimenting with ways to reproduce Anna's original summoning ritual and bring Azazel back. In this new ritual area, you'll learn more about what Molly was doing, as well as what you can do to reverse it... if she doesn't stop you first. Similar to The Farmhouse map, it is the place where you will perform special... procedures... which involve a rather shocking amount of electricity. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/abb54ad58135ce0fc85d77a50b0addc08fc03d0d.png We are only a small team, so we can't say for sure when the new map will be ready. We are working as hard as we can. We'll continue to post more DEVOUR updates, so keep on checking in. If you haven't already, check out our previous news posts for more screenshots of the new map. Thank you all for your support! Twitter: @DEVOUR_GAME Discord: Update: New Character Concept ArtMar 5, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsEveryone loves a sneak peak. Here's a look at some of the concept art for Molly, who will be hunting you down in the new, upcoming DEVOUR map. We've also included a look at some of the other visual elements of the map's environment - a creepy, private asylum. Please note that all of the following images are concept art and NOT final representations of what you will see in-game. We are continuing to tweak the map, so the final result might be slightly different. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/d51fb945f247385244af7f1962980de7887e18c4.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/63028a8b83b5a95cfd12f85e25cb0beaaaf362e5.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/47f44394bac0ed5ecce3d2e65e131d42db192ad9.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37243634/325632e9234e5fd4a8ee1925ca4c348a94a5b26a.jpg We are only a small team, so we can't say for sure when the new map will be ready.
