Humbled

Just a quick note to say, the wonderful people at Humble Inc are now providing the shop-front over at:

http://www.lonesurvivor.co.uk/buy.html

This means you’ll get a free CODENAME: RED Steam Key on purchase from now on, or the DRM-version, it’s up to you!  Everyone’s a winner!  All existing customers are getting free keys for the Humble store, and from there they can make their choice.

As I mentioned before, the Humble guys have gone out of their way to make a very smooth transition, and to take on the responsibility of my previous customers just to help me out, making sure everyone has the choice of update format.  I can’t thank them enough for their help with this!

Existing customers are most welcome to send their request at any time (see the previous blog entry for instructions.)  I think most of the Mac users have got their updates now.  We’ve still only done about 15%-20% of the purchases, so I’m trying to find a more automated way of doing it.  But apart from the odd day off, we’ll be getting back to anyone who send a request in within a day, and it’s no trouble at all for the most part…  In fact, it’s great fun reading all your kind, insightful, funny and sometimes even slightly strange messages.

It also means goodbye to the First Aid Edition, which has sold 200 copies, and for which the art cards will be done soon.  I can’t say how long it’s going to take, but I don’t want to rush it.  We already have the stamps, but we need to find the right place to print them…

Thanks to everyone who’s bought the game on my site or Steam, and especially to the First Aid customers, who’ve given me a few months freeware-experimentation-room!

I really am humbled.
