Beta2 is live – New Shopkeeper!

July 16, 2014 in Announcements by Tom

Lenna’s Inception version 0.3 (beta2) is live. Get it from the usual place.

In order to find the new shopkeeper in a pre-existing save file, you’ll need to visit the starving artists’ house and talk to the NPC inside.

What’s new

Features:

  • A shop has been added. This can be found near the library and school. Regarding the items on sale:
    • The shirt will eventually be part of a trading side-quest.
    • The bicycle is not a real item yet.
    • A random pet is also on sale, which is not shown in the GIF below.

Lenna’s Inception Beta – Now Available

July 8, 2014 in Announcements by Tom

I’m delighted to announce that Chucklefish, the wonderful team behind Starbound, are publishing Lenna’s Inception!

This new website you’re looking at is a product of theirs. We’ve also added Lenna’s Inception to the Chucklefish forums – which will be a fantastic place to share your leaderboard scores and speed-running tips (as well as for discussing everything else relating to the game). Aside from that, they’ve been providing tons of support and advice. I’m really excited to work with them!

This new website will be the primary way to keep up to date with the latest news about Lenna’s Inception, but I’m still planning to mirror posts on the Bytten Studio website (and on IndieDB as well, although less frequently).


Beta

As of today, Lenna’s Inception has officially reached beta status!

While it’s in beta you can purchase the game for £2.99 GBP (approximately $5.13 USD at the time of writing) on itch.io:
