Hey all you Good-Looking ToG pre-orderers!
Christmas has come early-the new Tower of Guns build is out and ready for downloading!
Image

Just log into your Humble Accounts, browse to your library, and you should be good!
If you do NOT have a Humble account then you will probably need to find your original purchase receipt--that should have a download link which should still be valid. Have fun!

New in this build:

  • All ten "starting" weapons are now unlockable
  • "starting weapons"? Yes, that means there are MORE weapons you can find in game at secrets and in shops...though they are rare
  • All perks except one are now unlockable (so, ten so far)
  • A whole boatload of brother Mike's new music is now in the game
  • THREE new levels to play through: The Armory, The Battlements, and The Sanctum.
  • More progress on room randomization. You can click on the "Dev Update" tab to see how far along each level is. The new levels only have one set of rooms so far, like usual for new levels.
  • new 'Tilt' mechanic (the 'C' button by default): now you can teleport yourself out of bad level design!
  • new items, enemies and boss (just one new boss this time).
  • lots of other little things!

Also, as much as I'd love for you to tell your friends to go pre-order the game right now--I'd feel pretty bad if they did that the day before a big sale was about the start...

SO:
Starting this SATURDAY Tower of Guns will be featured as the 96 hour deal on IndieGameStand.com. It's a pay-what-you-want offer, meaning you can get the game for super-cheap, but it also has a bunch of bonus stuff for those who "beat the average". It should be pretty fun.

So...feel like picking up a gift copy for a friend? Saturday is the time to do it. Or, at the very least, please plug the heck out of the sale on Saturday via your facebooks, twitter, and the like. Let's break Indie Game Stand with traffic! I think that's a good thing to do, right?

Thanks again for pre-ordering, folks!
-Joe

The only thing that made me sad was seeing the average price. Is that all they thought it was worth - as much as a pack of gum? :shock:

Still, it was 'pay what you want' and there was some serious power players in there and congratulations to the guys that got the bonus items!

Yeah, 3600 new players is amazing! That's a significant boost for sure!

As for the average, that's actually not too terrible for IndieGameStand..some of the other sales have an average of much lower. Still, I don't want to devalue my own project before I even finish it, so I'll probably wait until after version 1.0 before I do another sale like this. The IndieGameStand folks have been great to work with though!
