Incredible work, thank you!! :D Many welcome changes. Can't wait to have another go.

I have some questions:
1. Do we have to start a new profile to see these updates, or do they apply to existing profiles?
2. Will we ever see Galaxy achievement support?
3. Movie adaptation when?!

1. We recommend to start a new one for the best expirience, but the old save should work. If not drop us an email at
2. We would love to but our game runs on Java and GoG does not have a SDK in Java yet. If you want this to happen you should push them to do one! So sadly until Gog has one for us we have no way to make it work. :(
3. :D

Thanks for the kind words btw. <3
simonbachmann: snip
Thanks for the reply, and all the information! I'll be sure to poke GOG about the SDK, then.

By the way, if you mention it to GOG, they can set it so your forum accounts are flagged as developer accounts. It turns your text to a fancy orange colour, and lets people know you're the actual devs. ;D

We've just pushed a hotfix update.

- fixed bug causing invalid save data after profile upgrade to v1.1
- fixed bug causing loss of items in jeep storage when claiming achievement rewards during combat
- fixed a few localization issues

As Simon said above, if you experience any more "[INVALID SAVE DATA]" profiles after updating to the latest version, please send your saves to - on Windows, you can find them at:

Thanks a bunch!! I picked up and started playing this game fairly recently on GNU/Linux. Although it was very enjoyable and exciting at the beginning, there were some game mechanics that I wasn't too fond of. After reading about a big patch in the works, a break was warranted. Now it's time to get back and enjoy Pathway in it's full glory. Thanks, Robotality. :)

Waiting for the GNU/Linux port to get pushed to GoG.

Captain_Rage: Edit:
Waiting for the GNU/Linux port to get pushed to GoG.
The download portal now shows 1.1.0c on Linux for me, so I believe you are good to go.
Indeed, now it says 1.1.0c (yesterday the blue dot appeared twice on the GoG download page, with an updated changelog, but no actual new version). Time to try it out! :D Thanks again!
