Original article [Sun 1st Nov, 2020 20:30 GMT]: The charming adventure RPG Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling - that we also described as a polished independent tribute to the first two Paper Mario games - will be receiving an update on 5th November, bumping the game up to version 1.1.
This update will add three new quests, new bosses, some quality of life changes - including improved sprinting, faster cooking along with the ability to purchase recipes. And last but not least, some "other" mysterious additions.
Full patch notes will be made available on the day of release. For now, take a look at the trailer of this update below:
Will you be returning to Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling to try out this new update? Tell us down in the comments.
Heh. Just finally installed it. Good timing.
Such a good, good game this. Interesting update!
That is actually amazing! We're getting what is basically DLC for free. Why haven't I gotten this yet?
I saw the headline and I thought LRG finally announced their release. Still playing the waiting game.
Really excited for this; it's great to get some new content alongside the QOL updates
Got turned onto this a couple months ago. Need to play it but pretty bogged down with studying. I will though
@HotGoomba___Rebrand You and me both. It’s been on my wishlist for some time now, but something else keeps popping up like Hades or Horace.... to borrow from a meme.... “The amount of great games on the Switch is just too d*** high!”
It's a fantastic game... And so meaty and NOW we get even more? Good gravy...
I should Have gotten it I hear its better then the new paper mario.
New bosses? Hell yes, I am going to reboot this thing.
I'm thinking the update release will probably coincide with an announcement for being able to order the Physical from LRG @Aurumonado
@Snatcher I think Origami King is actually a great game, but Bug Fables is better in my book
Ive not got this yet but actually popped back in to my mind today. May have to grab it soon.
That's nice! I have only beat the first boss (I got distract very easily once I buy new games). Will definitely update on the 5th. I may try to clear this game before I buy my next game.
That's cool. With how many articles they've written on the subject, I'm surprised NL hasn't found a way to make this one about AoC's frame rate.
Waiting for a sweet deal before I pick it up
So are we gonna get more future updates? Because I’d be down for that!
I haven't picked this up in while, but this update may encourage me too!
I am going to have to do a 3rd play through now!
hearing about this from the discord server was amazing. i beat the game once already and did all the quests, really looking forward to this
This is one of the many games I've had my eyes on, but have not yet pulled the trigger... It looks so charming
@Snatcher yeah what pikaphantom said, TOK is a good time but is a novelty imo. it is absolutely not fun to do the ring battle again once youve seen all they offer. bug fables is a lot more packed with stuff to keep you playing
I didn't like the characters in this game, specially the bee. Too much talking, way too many jokes.
For the rest of it, the game is a lot like the original Paper Marios, but... the quality is too far away, imo. The lack of new equipment, for example, is nonsense, and the experience you get is really unfair.
I wanted to like it because PM:TTYD is one if my favourite games ever, but this game just doesn't feel the same at all. Unfortunately.
I actually just picked this up recently with the sale it just had. Only played a bit through it, almost at the end of the first cave/dungeon area. Really enjoying it so far, and the humor is right up my alley. To find that there's new DLC coming out for it now is just icing on the cake!
@the_beaver but paper mario had alot of jokes tho???!?!
@Snatcher Yes, but this is one after another. And either you like the characters (specially the bee) or you don't laugh at all. That's my main problem with the game.
That, and the lack or new weapons... What's an RPG without new equipment??
@Snatcher Honestly found the game a lot less heavy on humor than Origami King but the characters are more charming
Hopefully this means Limited Run Games will open up for pre-orders soon.
Wait, they’re allowed to update a rpg like this?
I never even considered the possibility!
Unless they extend the Level Cap, I doubt I'm gonna pick it up again.
It's an amazing game and I wanted to do everything, but after I reached the max LV, I lost all the motivation ti keep on playing.
I even reached it before the Final Boss. They probably did it to prevent the player to grind and become to strong. But it just makes fighting pointless and boring.
@Archius9 trust me, the game you’re getting at its current price is already an incredible deal. I put 40 hours into my first play through and immediately started a second. It’s the best game I’ve played on Switch all year, no question.
I picked this game up after being disappointed with the newest Paper Mario and it’s the BEST GAME I’VE PLAYED ALL YEAR. The overall gameplay is similar to Paper Mario but the entire thing is exploding with jokes, character development, and serious lore building. Absolutely awesome game. I started a mystery badge run immediately after my first play through but did lose steam about halfway through; this is a great reason to jump back in and finish. Essentially free DLC! I love these people, hope they make a sequel down the road.
I've heard numerous things that are great about Bug Fables and it's one of my top choices for games to try out. I played through The Origami King and found it to be a fun game, but in an entirely different way that didn't cater to my desire for a traditional Paper Mario game.
Looking at this game's success, just imagine if these developers got the opportunity to create an insane crossover with Paper Mario did, like the way Brace Yourself Games got to make Cadence of Hyrule. If this game is excellent (which it is), then a crossover will be phenomenal.
Which are the most pertinent updates here?
I love patches like this.
Bit of extra content + welcome QOL changes + ton of bug fixes and general improvements.
Fans of this NEED to play UnderHero, 86% on Metacritic. Another Paper Mario homage with a twist.
That is a hefty update! I can't wait to play this game. I'm waiting for a Limited Run print.
@HotGoomba___Rebrand I got it full price, and don't regret it.
@NookMiler Speeding up cooking, enemy defense indicators, party re-arranging, item re-arranging, better jumping, and better beemerang physics are what I'm focused on. Extra stuff is great, but all six of these things bothered me prior to this update.
I was really upset with the patch of bug fables on the switch. They changed the quick time direction indicator from an arrow to a stick. Making it much harder to tell what direction it wants me to input!
