Dragon Audit Ending Released

Dragon Audit's ending is now released!  You can now enjoy the last ~20 minutes of the game which includes a high-quality animated cinematic.

This update includes a number of other features, such as localization support for most (but not all) strings, surround sound support, adjustable jiggle, and numerous bug fixes.

After so many years of development, it's exciting to finally have the whole game playable and now released!

Coming up for the next build, we'll be working on getting the bonus features done for the Hoard of Bonus Content.  Then it's off to our official release on Steam, PS4, and Switch.

Translate Dragon Audit to Your Language

Multilingual? Interested in translating Dragon Audit to your language?

We now have a translation server set up, and most strings from the game are ready to be translated!  There are still a fair number that need to be moved into the translation server, but what's on the translation server represents approximately 90% of strings that need to be translated for a full translation.

Check this page to learn more and get started!

Translation status

Sometimes it can be useful to have some test data to see if the translation code is working or not, so I made a "Dragonese" language for testing. So here is the game in rawr-speak 😉

Castle Level, Achievements for Dragon Audit Released

Purchasers of Dragon Audit can now download the Castle level -- this means that all in-game content except the ending is now playable!

George and Ayraw must fix the castle's paternoster in order to complete the audit.  Search the castle for useful parts:

Along the way, you'll get to see George & Ayraw's backstories, too:

Also included is a new built-in achievement system -- all of them but 'Beat the Game' should currently be unlockable:

The custom PC controls binding system that previously debuted in the demo is also now available:

There's also some improved visuals of the mainland peninsula leading up to Ayraw's floating island:

There are too many changes to list, but here's some of the popularly requested fixes and systems:

  • Specials updated in Squelch's Tavern
  • Don't run when looking at UI
  • Custom mouse cursor
  • Fixed jumping down stairs
  • Smoother movement through doors and against walls so you don't get stuck moving
  • Improved visuals
  • Added a secret to Castle

To play it, just open the launcher (AESU) and you should get the latest content automatically.  The build date on the main menu should be 7/28 and marked 'CAS' (for Castle).

The dev status page has also been updated.

Demo Extension

I'm extending the length of availability for our Steam demo; some people may not have had a chance to fully play the demo during the festival, so I will be keeping it online for some time.  Have fun!
