  In Sound Mind Demo Update Addresses Players' Most Common Feedback
  Share on Twitter RSS

Walnut Creek, Calif (August 12, 2020) - Indie publisher Modus Games today announced a list of updates to the In Sound Mind demo currently live on Steam. In Sound Mind, an exhilarating twist on the psychological thriller genre, was announced during this year's PC Gaming Show on June 13th, and has since been praised by press and consumers alike as one of the top horror games to keep an eye on.

"Our dev partners at We Create Stuff are really going above and beyond to listen to players and provide the community with the amazing experience they're hoping for," said Shane Bierwith, EVP of global marketing at Modus. "Today, we're happy to share a new version of the demo with a number of updates based on that community feedback."

Many small bug/quality-of-life fixes: Over the past few weeks we’ve read your feedback forms, forum discussions, and Discord chats. So, we’ve increased the player height, improved jump momentum for better platforming, improved phrasing in notes & hints, and balanced puzzles and enemies to name just a few of the fixes!

Most common crashes resolved: If you’ve been crashing on the ISM demo, it’s very likely to be resolved in this new update. We’ve identified the most common crash issue some players were having and confirmed a fix in this new build. In case you’re still facing issues, please let us know.


Better controller support: PS4, XB1, and Switch controllers are now supported and do not require you to enable the Steam Controller features anymore. We also fixed some controller selection issues in menus.

If you have yet to play the demo, there is no better time than now to try it out. You can find the free download on Steam here. To learn more about the update, check out the full list of changes in today's Modus Games blog post.
