10 November 2016 – Version 340.4
- Fixed an issue from v340.3 where Steam leaderboards and achievements were not being activated, and savefile locations were incorrect. This was due to human error on my part. I will add some checks and alerts to my build process to ensure this doesn't happen again.
If you were using Windows with v340.3, savefiles would have been accidentally saved to:
If desired, please copy any savefiles to the correct directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Tallowmere
9 November 2016 – Version 340.3
- Selecting a language now applies the language and restarts Tallowmere immediately.
My apologies for the ~14 MB download size; it seems Unity 5.4 likes to repack the sprites every update.

- Settings are now saved immediately after selecting a language.
- Android: Fixed the Back and Confirm button text being off-centered.
2 November 2016 – Version 340.1

2 November 2016 – Version 340
Tallowmere: Now available in Simplified Chinese (简体中文)
Lady Tallowmere and her friends have learned to speak Simplified Chinese (简体中文), with thanks to Kai Shao.
New & Updated:
- Tallowmere is now built with Unity 5.4.2f1.
- Added internal support for multiple languages. For details about translating Tallowmere, please read the Localisation Support thread. The default language is English. Please note that weapons and loot acquired prior to v340 may retain their English names even if you change the language.
- Added Simplified Chinese (简体中文) as a selectable language. Translated by Kai Shao. Available in-game under Main Menu> Options> Languages.
- Updated the Steam monthly leaderboard to November 2016.
- In singleplayer, the weapon info box in the top-left corner no longer fades out.
- Added a slight glow around each Acid Trap skull.
- Converted the Tips & Tricks section to read data from local language files instead of requesting a file from Tallowmere's web server.
- Tamed the screen shake to be slightly smoother and less jarring for the shake duration.
- Fixed +Spiked Club Damage not being included in the loot rolls.
- Fixed an issue where +Base Damage numbers on new weapons were being rolled too low after loading a saved game.
- Fixed the Tips & Tricks section sometimes saying there was 1 new tip if you had read them all.
- Fixed screen tearing on Linux.
- Fixed mouse cursor showing erroneously on Linux. The cursor is now hidden and locked to the game window from the start. Opening the main menu by pressing Esc will release the cursor so you can click elsewhere on your desktop. Resuming the game will lock the cursor to the game again.
27 August 2016 – Version 340 Beta 2
- Converted the Tips & Tricks section to read data from local langauge files instead of requesting a file from Tallowmere's web server.

25 August 2016 – Version 340 Beta 1a
This update adds the ability for Tallowmere to support multiple languages!
Changes (currently for the Steam beta branch):
- Tallowmere is now built with Unity 5.4.0f3.
- Added support for multiple languages. If you'd like to translate Tallowmere to your language, please visit tallowmere.com/translate.
- Added a slight glow around each Acid Trap.
- Fixed screen tearing on Ubuntu/Linux.
1 August 2016 – Version 334.13
- The Steam monthly leaderboard for August 2016 is now live.
Adjusted Tallowmere's code to not require a whole new build and version each month for the monthly leaderboards.
Monthly leaderboards will still continue, but version numbers will not need to be increased each month (unless there's something else that has been updated).
I will continue to post leaderboard links in the announcements.
3 July 2016 – Version 334.12
- Fixed an audio crackling issue from 334.11.
1 July 2016 – Version 334.11
- Enabled the Steam monthly leaderboard for July 2016.
24 June 2016 – Version 334.10
- Added support for PlayStation 4 controller for Sony Xperia Z5 via Bluetooth.
22 June 2016 – Version 334.9
iPhone, iPad, and Android:
- iPhone, iPad, Android: Added Static Movement buttons as an optional movement type. Available under Main Menu> Options> Input Options> Movement Type.
- iPhone, iPad: Fixed an issue from 334.8 where body parts were not leaving bloodsplats when colliding with blocks if blood was enabled.
- iPhone, iPad: Fixed an MFi controller issue from 334.8 where, after dying, you had to press the A button twice instead of once to return home.
11 June 2016 – Version 334.8
- Enabled the Shrine update on iPhone and iPad.
- Added an option to disable blood. Available under Main Menu > Game Options > Blood.
I created this blood-free option because Apple required me to have my screenshots and app preview videos be blood-free before they'd approve the build. The game is still bloody by default :)
1 June 2016 – Version 334.7
- The Steam leaderboard for June 2016 is now live.
- Improved Feeler AI to ensure they keep flying around.
- Fixed music tracks not looping in certain event rooms.
8 May 2016 – Version 334.6
7 May 2016 – Version 334.5
Android requirement changes:
For the Steam DLC
and DRM-free Android versions:
- OpenGL ES 2.0 is now the minimum requirement instead of OpenGL ES 3.0.
- Changed the default texture compression to ETC instead of ETC2.
These changes should resolve the pink screen issue some users were having.
The Google Play Store version
will keep the requirement of OpenGL ES 3.0 for now.
5 May 2016 – Version 334.4
2 May 2016 – Version 334.3
15 April 2016 – Version 334.2
- Android: Enabled the 32-bit Display Buffer to resolve black screen issues on certain devices.
8 April 2016 – Version 334.1

1 April 2016 – Version 334
Fire, ice, and everything nice. Lady Tallowmere has delivered 6 new shrines to her dungeon for you to discover.
Most rooms now have a 30% chance to contain a shrine, with a smaller chance that two shrines may appear. Shrines won't appear in boss rooms.
Shrine of Power
Applies a double damage effect to your weapons. Lasts 60 seconds.
Shrine of Swiftness
Increases your movement speed. Lasts 60 seconds.
Shrine of Wealth
Grants extra coins from enemies. Lasts 60 seconds.
Shrine of Regeneration
Grants you increased health regeneration. Lasts 60 seconds.
Shrine of Chilling
Gives your weapons an icy touch. Lasts 60 seconds.
Shrine of Fire
Ignites your weapons with fire. Lasts 60 seconds.
Activating a shrine will apply a visual effect to your hero and/or weapons for the duration.
Fiery Ice Wands? Icy Katanas? Double Damage Rocket Launchers? The power can be yours – if you're lucky.
Dev console commands:
- Bloats and Zaeries that are chilled when they die will now chill nearby enemies that are hit in their death explosion.
- Bloats and Zaeries that are on fire when they die will now ignite nearby enemies that are hit in their death explosion.
If you'd like to cheat and spawn a shrine immediately, you can open the Dev Console
by pressing the ~ key and type:
- spawn double damage shrine
- spawn haste shrine
- spawn wealth shrine
- spawn health regen shrine
- spawn cold shrine
- spawn fire shrine
The Steam leaderboard for April 2016
