Dirge Update 0.4: New Character and Bug Fixes

Dirge Update 0.4
Dirge Update 0.4 Steam

Dirge received a major update that introduced a new character, along with several performance optimizations and bug fixes.

New Investigator: Kiyoshi

Update 0.4 introduces Kiyoshi, a new investigator, as a playable character. Because his speed isn’t the best, he prefers to fight instead of running away. Due to his time in the military, he has his own service pistol and can reload quickly.

Performance Optimizations

Developers have reworked a huge part of the internal code base to optimize the loading of assets. Now, optimized textures used for UI have a higher quality and assets would only load when needed.
