The Soundless art update is now available for Windows, Linux, and Mac through the Soundless Itch.io page. This update permits players to choose between the original artwork and new, updated artwork. It also contains a small collection of quality-of-life features, such as security updates and the ability to use auto-forward and self-voicing at the same time.
- Updated versions of all main story artwork (sprites, CGs, original backgrounds) have been added to the game, along with an updated version of the opening cutscene. Players can switch between old and new versions of the artwork as they like.
- The gallery has been split into three sections: Old, New, and Adiaphoron. The Adiaphoron gallery is only unlocked after completing Adiaphoron.
- A new Controls screen has been added to the game menu so players can quickly view game controls.
- Ren’Py has been updated to version 8.1. This update adds security features and permits players to use auto-forward and self-voicing at the same time.
Players who have already installed a previous version of Soundless: Final Verse (NOT pre-Final Verse versions of the program) will have their persistent data reset upon launching the latest version. This is due to an engine update that increases the security features of persistent/save data, thus making old, unsigned persistent data files flagged as untrustworthy by Ren’Py. As such, you will find that you will be prompted with the initial startup screen again. Please answer accordingly and then readjust your settings before continuing play.
Saves are not affected. Players mid-save will find gallery progress also reset, but upon completing the main story of Soundless the entirety of the main story gallery will be force-unlocked out of consideration for players with in-progress games. (This is also applied to Adiaphoron for players with mid-Adiaphoron saves.)
