Welcome to the new players who bought the game during this Midweek Madness !

Yesterday, we announced our next project: Tetrobot and Co.
We plan to release it on Windows, Mac, Linux and some touch devices in early 2013.
Of course, we hope it will be available on Steam, but we still have to finish the game before investigating on this subject :)

One of our goal is to make the game a little bit more accessible than BTM, by reducing the frustration of making mistakes (for example), but it will still be a challenging puzzle game.

You can find more info about the game on our devblog:

Thank you to every player of Blocks That Matter,
Your support allows us to continue to create the best possible games.

Blocks That Matter has been updated so you can now share community levels and language files through Steam Workshop. It means you can also suscribe to your friends catalog, rate levels, comment them, create level collections…

If you want to see your already made levels in the Workshop, you have to re-publish them.

Have fun !

Your attention, please,

Blocks That Matter is <a href="http://store.steampowered.com/app/111800/">"Today's Game" deal on Steam</a> with a 66% discount.
It means the game can be purchased at 1,69$ / 1,69€ during the next 24h.

Short Fuse - by Krypton
High Jump - by FRiZ
Shoot The Big Mama - by OrcShaman2000
Chipping Away - by Krypton
Falling 3 Really Bad - by Chacham

<a href=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0um8N3SNHy8>Watch them in action!</a>

Thanks to all players/creators who submitted tons of levels since August 2011! We'll feature new levels in the next weeks, so keep being awesome.

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!
