    Default update11 released

    Hello,

    since more free time is coming with the summer, I thought I'd provide BOH players with some additional fun - and, while at it, I also made it a little bit easier to beginners

    So, I have just released the update11, which:
    * adds the aiming device (a tool that shows the shooting trajectory);
    * allows to restart from the last phase played when difficulty is set to "easy";
    * adds 2 new missions;
    * refines light casting;
    * enriches and extends the menu music of the theme "underground";
    * retouches the menu music of the theme "default";
    * adds the Danish translation;
    * improves the translations;
    * fixes the "mood" of the ending;
    * updates and improves the manuals;
    * applies various other changes.



    The update can be downloaded for free from the DOWNLOADS page of the official website.
    The demos have been updated to reflect the changes.

    Default update12 released

    Hi,

    since the previous update brought to surface a couple of nasty bugs (as reported by a few users, whom I wholeheartedly thank), I fixed them and seized the occasion to raise the number of missions to 40 and to add a new translation!



    More specifically, this update:
    * fixes 2 bugs that could cause crashes;
    * adds 2 new secret missions;
    * adds the Polish translation;
    * applies various other changes.

    The update can be downloaded for free from the DOWNLOADS page of the official website at http://www.bohthegame.com.
    The demos have been updated to reflect the changes.

    Finally, a couple of addresses for who wants to follow BOH directly:
    * Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/BOH/99598418583
    * Twitter: http://twitter.com/bohthegame

    As always, enjoy!

    Default update13 released

    Hellooo,

    for both those who are having a great gaming time now and those who will back at their computers after the summer, here is one more massive update that takes BOH to yet another level



    More specifically, this update:
    * adds world standings: the game can send automatically the local records to a global server that keeps the real-time standings of all the players in the world who make use of this new feature;
    * adds a new tile kind: the message point, i.e. a location that reveals a message (a hint, a riddle, a part of story, etc.);
    * uses the messages points to make many missions more intriguing and to improve the tutorial missions (which have also been slightly modified for greater effectiveness);
    * adds the theme "pyramid";
    * adds 5 new missions;
    * adds the possibility of specifying a success epilogue and a failure epilogue for each phase;
    * reworks automappers: the more powerful one now covers the same area of the other one, but provides also an alternative rendering mode whereby the map reflects faithfully the actual colors of the tiles;
    * makes movements of enemies clearer;
    * allows the RM to open locked passages and exits only when facing them;
    * removes sidestepping;
    * makes [SPACE] the default automapper key;
    * makes the alignment of menu texts definable by the theme designer;
    * improves a few strings in some translations;
    * improves and updates the manuals;
    * applies various other changes.

    The update can be downloaded for free from the DOWNLOADS page of the official website.
    The demos have been updated to reflect the changes.

    As always, enjoy

    Little notice to all

    Unfortunately, yesterday, not long after the announcement of update13, the provider did some maintenance and this made BOH's website unreachable for some hours. Sorry for the inconvenience. The website now can be accessed without problems (hopefully).

    Would someone other than Samio care to offer his endorsement at this time?

    Just look at what Killersquirell said here at post #37, or have a look at the comments gathered in this page

    Default BOH at the Indie of the Year Awards

    Hi everybody,

    this time I'm disturbing you for a little request - I hope I'm not doing any harm.

    I'd like to invite who deems BOH worthy of such request to vote for it in the first phase of the Indie of the Year Awards (only the first 50 games pass the phase).
    To vote it's enough to go to BOH's page on Indie DB and click on the big VOTE FOR THIS INDIE button. Important note: who is registered on Indie/Mod DB should vote after logging in, as his/her vote will count more.

    Thanks for your time and, obviously, for voting!

    Default BOH passed the first round!

    Hello,

    I'm very happy to report that BOH passed the first round of the Indie of the Year Awards!

    Now, if you wish to help BOH make it to the finals, just:
    1. go here;
    2. click on the "Adventure" category in the "TOP 100 RELEASED INDIES OF 2010" list;
    3. locate BOH's line (it should be the third);
    4. click on "VOTE".
    (And, if you can, spread the word!)
    It's easy and, like before, no registration is required!

    Thanks once again!

    P.S. I'm seizing the chance to inform you that I've recently released a 20-minute game session video - if you'd like to give it a look, go here.

    Default update14 released

    Hello people,

    of course, you wouldn't expect me to let the year end without giving BOH players one freebie, would you? The 14th update is now out! It ups the total number of missions to a whopping 50 (for many tens of hours of play), brings a few enhancements and makes life easier to who enjoys creating his own missions!



    More specifically, this update:
    * reworks the advanced automapper (the realistic mode has been replaced with the fullscreen view, which allows to see more; the controls have been made more comfortable);
    * improves the video modes suggestions;
    * allows terminating map lines with CR+LF;
    * improves error logging;
    * improves the graphics of blocks in theme "C64";
    * adds 5 new missions;
    * retouches slightly a few missions;
    * retouches slightly the Spanish translation;
    * updates the manuals;
    * applies various other changes.

    The update can be downloaded for free from the DOWNLOADS page of the official website.
    The demos have been updated to reflect the changes.

    Enjoy!

    I suspect people will be much more interested to know that it is on sale on Impulse again this weekend.

    Default The Christmas SurpriCe

    Well, your remark gives me the occasion to inform them about another special opportunity, as the update released a few days ago was not the only surprise in store for Christmas

    Starting today, BOH comes at ridiculously low price!
    In fact, who fancies the idea of receiving a nice boxed copy of BOH comfortably at home, only needs EUR 8.99, for Italy, or EUR 14.99, for any other place in the world! - and that's including taxes and shipping!
    And, of course, there's a surprise also for who is perfectly happy with a digital copy: downloading the full game costs only EUR 4.99!
    You'll never ever get so much for so little, so, if you're looking forward to lots of gaming fun during the upcoming holidays, don't let this extraordinary opportunity pass you by!

    (Please note that this offer supercedes any previous offer and pricing scheme.)

    Cheers!

    I'm bumping this thread to let people know that this is a great game and is one to get if you haven't purchased it already.

    No worries. Thanks for making a great, fun game.

    To those that haven't played it yet, I just tried the new (to me) feature of submitting your fastest times to the website. This is a great new feature and the times update in realtime. This is a great challenge, and I'm throwing down the gauntlet and challenging every Digital Press forum member to get the fastest times. If you beat me at a level, post it here and wait for your time to be beaten!

    Glad to hear you like that feature
    Here's a link for convenience of the readers: online standings.

    I noticed your records were submitted with three different names, so I took the liberty to gather them all under the name "MIKE" - if you prefer a different one, just let me know.
    (By the way, in case you don't already know, you can configure the game to ask your name once and for all: in the options menu, set name request to once.)

    This is a great challenge, and I'm throwing down the gauntlet and challenging every Digital Press forum member to get the fastest times. If you beat me at a level, post it here and wait for your time to be beaten!
    Ha, great attitude!
    Some of the guys at the top of the charts did actually fight against each other and, in fact, they managed to set quite amazing times!

    A few days ago, I was looking around Google News for video game related announcements and noticed this in the sidebar on Joystiq.

    http://www.joystiq.com/2011/03/02/th...die-pitch-boh/

    Really cool, congratulations.

    If it's possible to change my name to killersquirel (all in lowercase) that would be great. I originally used mike because it was on my own computer, but I think it would be easier to see that it is me as killersquirel. Thanks.

    Default update15 released

    Hi all,

    I'm extremely happy to celebrate BOH's 3rd birthday by informing you that I have just released the 15th and final update, which brings even more contents and improvements!



    More specifically, this update:
    * adds 5 missions;
    * adds the Dutch translation;
    * optimizes even further the rendering engine;
    * replaces the transition effect with a cooler one;
    * centers the graphics vertically when playing in a screen bigger than the game area;
    * allows providing just alphamask files for all the graphics of themes;
    * replaces icons with bigger and crisper ones;
    * allows to configure the URL for the submissions of records to the online world standings (so that, in future, standings will remain accessible also if the URL changes);
    * updates the manuals;
    * applies various other minor optimizations/fixes.

    The update can be downloaded for free from the DOWNLOADS page of the official website at www.bohthegame.com.
    The demos have been updated to reflect the changes.

    Default Soundtrack released (for free)

    Hi all,

    I'd like to let you know that, thanks to the warm and positive feedback received, today I have released the BOH soundtrack, in a deluxe package prepared with the same meticulous care that characterizes BOH throughout.



    The package contains:
    * 18 tracks (6 menu tunes, 6 failure jingles and 6 success jingles, for a total of over 11 minutes) in CD quality;
    * a print-quality, jewel case-format, 8-page booklet which accompanies the reader on an aural journey through the mazes of BOH;
    * a print-quality, jewel case-format, double-sided inlay;
    * a color serigraphy for high-quality CD stickers and pressed CD labels;
    * a black-and-white serigraphy for LightScribe labels.

    Everybody can download the soundtrack for free from http://www.bohthegame.com/downloads.html.

    (Note: the picture is only a mockup of how a real CD would look like.)

    Does Impulse still have the most recent version?

    I must confess I never got around to trying this, despite purchasing it. (Have you not tried to get it on Steam, or in one of the various Indie bundles?)
