New Missions and information on the main story.
2315 new individual renders and 3 new animations.
Upgrades from Ren’Py 7.3 to Ren’Py 7.5.3 (updates the engine from one more than 3 years old to the latest version. This was necessary for the game’s development and had to be done for several reasons including enabling an eventual steam release that wouldn’t have been possible on Ren’Py 7.3. This adds new functionalities but causes the requirement for a full new download and is the reason there is no “update only” this time around as you need to redownload the main engine too. This should not affect your saves however!).
Extends the day adding around 30 new renders.
Over 25 new pieces of evidence added to be found by the player’s teams.
Over 3,000 words of new story related text.
New Dark Mode GUI.

Adding an additional 1,267 renders and 4 new adult scenes.
v0.13 Part 1
Full update for Ellie, Jenna and Lydia
Firstly, to avoid confusion, this is not the v.0.13 release of Defending Lydia Collier. This is a “Pre-Patch” that adds in most of the missing content in terms of the computer and Sophie’s tablet to v.0.12.1 where it was missing, but it does not advance the game, it instead sets the game up to be ready to roll straight into v.0.13 next weekend.
This is also the first public test of the new remade and simplified computer and tablet systems, so there may be bugs and any feedback on this is appreciated.
With the game I do not go back and alter old content at the moment, that is something I will do after v.0.16, so the old computer continues up until the end of Day 11, and the new one takes over from Day 12 onwards until the final polishing update.
Betting & Searching are disabled intentionally in v.0.12.2. Searching will be re-enabled in v.0.13, whereas Betting will have a full overhaul in the near future to make it more engaging.

Adds new Computer UI and roughly twenty news articles.
