Obeliskial Options

This is an Across the Obelisk mod that contains a number of options to alter gameplay.

Broadly speaking, this mod makes the game easier; I encourage you to try harder madness levels, corruption modifiers and personal challenges to re-balance the game.

Should be multiplayer-friendly, though all players must have the mod. The host’s settings will override other players’ for options in the below tables with MP Override = true.

  2. Click Manual Download at the top of the page.
  3. In Steam, right-click Across the Obelisk and select Manage->Browse local files.
  4. Extract the archive into the game folder.
  5. Run the game. If everything runs correctly, you will see this mod in the list of registered mods on the main menu.
  6. Press F5 to open/close the Config Manager and F1 to show/hide mod version information.

Installation (automatic)
