Patch 1.0.7 Notes


Version 1.0.7 changes began at the Steam version of White Pearl commencing 2nd January 2018, and updates to the version were made until the alternate ending was finished for the game.

Version 1.0.7 will be released on Steam first, at 5th February 2018.

Version 1.0.7 will be released, here, on itch.io, at 25th February 2018.

The reason for the delay between the Steam and itch.io versions is because re-releasing the game as a completely new package will take some time.

Due to the frequency at which updates were made, not every single change may be covered here.
