[1.4.0] Nightmare Pack #3
« on: January 30, 2016, 10:19:34 AM »

Fear Equation has just hit version 1.4.0! This update marks the arrival of our third Nightmare Pack, which includes five new fears to tackle.

Here's a taste of the terrors included:
  • Hunchback: A monster, a victim, a child. He just wants to play.
  • Void: There's nothing here but the distant stars you'll never reach.
  • Demons: The Devil's minions climb up from Hell to drag you down.
  • Creatures: Perhaps the Void isn't empty after all.
  • Beast: The fog lingers with those who have encountered the Beast.
Details for previous Nightmare Packs can be found on the forums.

Patch 1.4.0 also includes a bunch of new bits and pieces, including accessibility options to help colour-blind players, a multi-cargo order card, dream histories for individual passengers and various tweaks, bug fixes and optimisations.
