The devious wee sods. It’s always like this: the Humble Bundle announces its latest pay-what-you-want indie deal, so we duly post about it because the people should know and all that. Then, a few days later, they go and add more games to the bundle, so it seems wise to also post about that. They’ve [...]

Hi dear community!

Today is a great day, since Blocks That Matter gets its demo LIVE on Steam!

The bad news: when you already own the full game, the "Download Demo" button will not work :(

If you uninstall the game, the "Download Demo" button will work... but it will install the FULL game insteand of the Demo :(

The only way to play the Demo on Steam for now is to have an account that didn't own Blocks That Matter.

However, since the demo installs itself in a "blocks that matter demo", you didn't have to fear about save data loss :)

We will see with Steam crew if there is a way to allow you to install this Demo next to the full version, because this demo includes:

- Custom introduction and dialog
- 6 tutorials levels
- 3 levels taken from the full game
- 1 ending level
- 1 bonus level
- 9 of the 17 tracks!
- 4 EXCLUSIVES BTMs to unlock!


For those who already own the full game on Steam and want to play the demo, you can go to our FTP:

http://swingswingsubmarine.com/BTMdemo/

and download one of the following archive file:
- Blocks_That_Matter_Demo_Win_1_0_0_4.zip
- Blocks_That_Matter_Demo_Mac_1_0_0_4.zip
- Blocks_That_Matter_Demo_Linux_1_0_0_4.zip


Thanks for spreading the word!

Have a nice game!
