Dear Endera Agents, the newest patch is now available on Steam for everyone using Windows or Linux. MacOS version will be released in a few days. This new update brings a lot of new things!

Mostly it's all about optimization. So you should get higher FPS and less stuttering during gameplay for the most configurations now. We worked really hard on this one - to finally wrap up our development on BLACKHOLE.

We will still improve the game if we find something wrong, don't worry. We are not abandoning the title. We are in the middle of porting the game to Xbox One and PS4, and a lot of improvements are now available to you because of the optimization of console versions.

The game has a new game mode now! The 'Minimal Story' mode is a great mode for streamers and video makers, because it turns off 95% of all dialogues in the game. That's even twice more than 'Less Dialogues' mode! We hope you all will enjoy our improvements. You can find the changelog below.
