We’re also getting ready to launch the Android version of Crayon Physics Deluxe on Google Play. The port is being done by Apportable and they’ve been doing a really great job. We’re still fixing few of the last issues before launching it.
Humble Bundle release is sort of an beta release for the Android version of Crayon Physics Deluxe. When we’ve sorted out some of the bugs and patched up the game and added few other bonuses we’ll put the game on Google Play.
I lectured at Assembly 2011 about this idea I had had about why limitations are good for creativity. It’s more of an idea and I mostly have anecdotal evidence to back it up, but apparently people found it inspirational so here’s video of it.
Here’s the list of the games mentioned and links to their sites:
Also there’s a new PC version. The new version is numbered 55. And there are bunch of small changes. Nothing radical, but few bug fixes and improvements. Biggest change has been that the game now uses OpenGL instead of DirectX. Which means that you’ll probably won’t see any kind of actual change in the game. Unless the OpenGL implementation breaks the game for you. Which might happen… If that happens I’m sorry. The demo on the site is based on the older DirectX version so it’s not a good way to test if the actual game works on your system. We’re working on getting the demos up to date and on the site. Also we’re working on getting the demo for the other platforms as well.
For the Mac and Linux builds I have to thank Dennis Belfrage, Jani Hast, Ryan C. Gordon and the Humble Indie Bundle team.
Edit August 3th 2011 We updated both the Mac and Linux builds. Mac version should now finally work on the 10.5.8 and Linux version should now have fewer depencies. You can download the new version from our site or from Humble Bundle.
You can now go and pay what ever you want to get Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight and And Yet It Moves for PC, Mac or Linux. You can also give a portion or all of your money to charities.
This also means that Crayon Physics Deluxe is now (finally) available for Mac and Linux. But more about that later…
