In case you missed it, we had a majorly exciting re-release of Waking Mars this past Thursday and were stoked by all the attention it got over the weekend.
For the past few months, we’ve been working hard to bring Waking Mars to a handful of new platforms - Windows PCs, Macs, Android devices, and even Linux systems.
We released them all on the same day and were.. well.. humbled to be part of the latest Humble Bundle, the super awesome “pay what you want / decide how much goes to charity” megapack of awesome indie games.
Humble Bundles don’t last forever, so get this one while the gettings good:
You can also buy Waking Mars for Windows, Mac, and Linux directly from us on the Waking Mars website! We’ve said it before, but the game surprised even us with how natural it feels on PC. Kicking back on the couch holding a gamepad watching it on the HDTV was a proud moment!
In addition to the regular technical and controls type work that goes into a port, we massively upgraded the story presentation. Check out the improved character portraits, below. We also added professional voice acting which we’re really pleased with and we’re glad to see the critics and fans digging it too!
We don’t like to be stingy with our iOS roots, so we ported over all this voice acting and art goodness as a major update to the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch versions. It’s almost like a whole new game, and as always App Store updates are free, so download and enjoy today!
David and Randy did a live online interview thing on Reddit on launch day! Read the transcription here in which we talk about our favorite games, our design process, our future projects, how our company is run, and so forth!
And lastly, maybe due to all this attention, our Greenlight page was been picking up a lot of steam(*) and is rapidly rising through the charts. If you haven’t already, please go grace us with your Thumbs Up approval today!
