90% SALE for RunForTheCure!

ESJ is 90% off this weekend, because we're raising money for Run For the Cure!

This supports breast cancer research AND motivates me, michael todd, to look like an idiot and run marathons. Yay!

As an added bonus, for the fans of indie games & game development out there, I’ve collected some behind-the-scenes cool stuff from some awesome game designers. I asked them for design notes, sketches, art style mockups & early prototypes, and they’ve delivered!

- Ron Carmel, known for World Of Goo, with some art style mockups.
- Metanet (Mare & Raigan), known for N++, with notes sketched during N++ development.
- Terry Cavanagh, known for VVVVVV & Super Hexagon. He’s donated a super early prototype of Super Hexagon.
- Zach Barth, Zachtronics, known for Infinifactory, TIS-100, SpaceChem & Infiniminer. He’s scanned in a bunch of his puzzle design notes from SpaceChem.

So, to get your hands on these lovely goodies, buy Electronic Super Joy on Steam & you’ll find an extra folder, called RunForTheCure (.../SteamApps/ElectronicSuperJoy/RunForTheCure), that contains all these wonderful things. :)


Already own ESJ & want to help? Donate directly at RunForTheCure.com or buy ESJ as a gift for a friend!
