The Future is #OnDeck
Greetings everyone! The latest update for Mondrian – Plastic Reality is out. This will begin the slow trickle of updates throughout the rest of the year to achieve the “Runs Great on Steam Deck” verification. The biggest hurdle to overcome for this will be Mondrian Maker, which is currently based entirely on Mouse and Keyboard input. The current plan is to overhaul the entire UI and input code to be more in-line with Mondrian Studio, and create the ultimate interface for creativity on the go.
Since we’re well aware of what we’ve built, we won’t be submitting the game for Steam Deck verification until Mondrian Maker is overhauled. However, don’t let that stop you from trying out the game anyway! Believe it or not, we don’t have a Steam Deck of our own, but would love to get some dedicated testers to send us feedback on game feel, stability, and ideas on what would work best for Mondrian Maker‘s revamped UI. Please get in touch if you own or have access to a Steam Deck. We’ll be happy to set you up with a Lifetime Pass key and access to a dedicated Steam Deck testing branch.
This patch applies to both Lifetime Pass and Free Admission players. The 1.0.11f2 update mainly adds more dedicated touchscreen controls for Mondrian Studio, but there are even more Steam Deck-centric additions. Here’s the full list:
You can probably tell we’re really excited about the Steam Deck, and especially what it can bring to the table in terms of content creation. We think Mondrian Maker could be a truly euphoric experience on the platform, and the efforts we put in on the platform will help make Mondrian a more complete package overall (like getting back to “Full Controller Support”). More will be on the way soon, and there’s a LOT to get to in 2022. As always, can’t wait to see what you create, and thank you for playing.
