Patterns Update 0.01j2-hotfix 3/5/2013

The new-to-Steam game Patterns has come with a new update:

Hi Pattern’s fans.

We have an update that addresses just a few bugs. Our last update appears to be working well for most folks. We were able to address some serious issues we had with save games and it sounds like that has been a success.

A bug was reported about saving a game with a phantom bomb and we fixed it. In certain situations Patterns would get corrupted when saving out of the Pattern stone. The game would soft lock if you entered key rebinding when in Tab camera mode. That has been fixed as well.

For Steam users the game will update automatically for you. If you are accessing the game via buildpatterns.com you will want to manually download the latest version.

Thank you for playing and let us know how the game is performing for you.

Cheers,
The Patterns Dev team

Release notes:

Bug Fixes:
• Fixed save games corrupted by saving with a ‘phantom’ bomb.
• Fixed soft lock when rebinding keyboard keys when in Tab camera mode.
• Fixed Patterns that could in some circumstances become corrupted in the Pattern stone.
