We've partnered up with IndieBox (!

IndieBox is a supercool monthly subscription service for Collector Editions of great indie games. We reached out to them to discuss the idea of an exclusive Typoman Collector's Edition. And being subscribers and owning several boxes ourselves we can confirm - it's the best service ever and worth every single Dime!

Our mission is to celebrate the best independent games from around the world with high-quality physical products.

We're very happy to anounce that Typoman is March's IndieBox!

Starting with Typoman, IndieBox is moving to a larger box which offers more room for great collectables. Typoman's box not only contains a Steam key and a DRM-free version of the game accompanied by SonicPicnic's game soundtrack, but also a one-of-a-kind 3D statuette doubling as a cool penholder, of course an exclusive Typoman pen and a beautifully designed booklet.

Patch 1.9 with support for Linux + SteamOS and new fixes

The wait is finally over, Typoman now supports Linux and SteamOS!

In a quick beta test session we were able to locate and remove critical bugs and crashes, so the game will hopefully run very smoothly on most Linux configurations.

Kudos to everyone who participated, but also to our amazing programmers who were quick to address every issue that was reported!

Get in touch if you're still encountering any problems, we'll make sure to quickly patch them out!
