Cannot Speak to Madison in Tutorial

Post by Saugus » Tue Jul 10, 2018 3:12 pm

I originally bought House Party back in November of 2017 on Steam and had no problem running the Tutorial story. After a long hiatus, I ran the Tutorial again today, July 10, 2018, but now I cannot speak with Madison. I can move around and pick up things like the TV remote, etc., use the virtual hand to pick up the pizza box and spoon in the kitchen, but cannot interact with Madison and thus cannot really learn again how to play the game. I have Steam set to keep the game updated, so I assume I have the latest version of the game, 0.9.6. Is the Tutorial no longer supported? Has it been incorporated into the Original Story? Why will it not work as it did before? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

In fact, "Tutorial" was split from original story, but was not updated since, while the engine had changed and breaks stuff (ie all 0.8.x custom story don't work with 0.9.x or more recent version).

I don't know when eek devs plan to upgrade it :?

Tutorial is not anymore part of story files that are bundled with the game or downloaded with auto-updater.

Due to that, any Tutorial story you have is an artifact of the older game release, that is left there, since game has no auto-update mechanism that would prune old stories removed from official release.
