Numerous bugs and issues have also been fixed ahead of the Steam Awards
Saint Kotar’s biggest update since launch has gone live today with updated voice performances, bug fixes, new artwork and sound effects.
The update has arrived just in time for the Steam Awards and is available on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games. Players will be able to nominate Saint Kotar in the “Outstanding Story-Rich” category. Steam has always given players the chance to act as the committee to determine nominees for their awards.
Votes for this year’s nominees can be cast during the autumn sale which lasts until December 1st. Once nominees are determined votes can be cast for the winner of each category in Steam’s Winter Sale with the winner announced on January 3rd, 2022. Previous winners of the Outstanding Story Rich Award include Red Dead Redemption II and A Plague Tale: Innocence.
Saint Kotar is a dark and chilling point-and-click adventure that gets under your skin and isn’t afraid to tackle mature themes. A common complaint that we mentioned in our review, and one of Saint Kotar’s biggest shortcomings was its voice acting which frequently undercuts the tension and sense of dread in the story.
Red Martyr Media has made a concentrated effort to improve their game and address the biggest issues to secure as many nominations as possible. Publisher Soedesco has released a before and after video for the voiceovers, and it really is a night and day difference. Some of the worst offenders like the hotel receptionist Luka are now performed to a professional standard. The new voice-overs have been included to better match the dark and foreboding tone of the game. You can check out the new voiceovers in the video below.
Saint Kotar is available now on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store.
