Hunger Games: Game Integrity Updates

This week I’ve been releasing integrity updates to the Hunger Games which should fix many long-standing issues. Thank you to the community for helping identify these bugs.

  • Part 1 (May 21):
    • Change: The torch heals 1% hp/s → 1.5% hp/s
    • Fix: Projectile weapons work properly upon respawning.
    • Fix: Certain faces no longer break the server.
    • Fix: Healing from the torch can no longer be stacked.
    • Fix: Reduced outlines on the skybox texture.
  • Part 2 (May 22):
    • Fix: Shop, Spectate, Help and About windows scale on small screens better!
    • Fix: Melee weapons cannot deal damage until they’ve been equipped for a moment.
    • Fix: Ranged weapons fire properly when picked up from the ground.
    • Fix: Text is now properly filtered in sponsor notes.

These updates are primarily in response to a big surge in popularity, which was caused by a video released by the Youtuber Flamingo. It featured a sort of spiritual successor game The Pyre Games by Roblox user bridgemess. At the very end of the video, the Hunger Games was given a brief shout-out! So, hello to Albert fans!

Fans of the Hunger Games would be well suited to try out this new game. It’s coming along nicely, and I fully support its development 🙂
