We’re very pleased to announce that we are expanding Life Goes On with new content and features as Life Goes On: Done to Death.
Life Goes On: Done to Death is an expansion of our existing game to include a bright new world filled with strange mechanisms and deadly new traps. For example, we’ve decided that we aren’t done with the knights even after they die. In this new section of the game, you will face the bodies from your former lives as they walk around the level, attacking your player, and stumbling into traps.
We’ve always had fun with Life Goes On – sacrificing your characters over and over is a dark concept. But by making it as ridiculous as possible, it turns into something funny. Done to Death builds on this by delivering more morbid comedy and more opportunities for the players to mistreat the knight in horrible and unique ways.
The community has always been incredibly supportive of us and so we’ve decided that it didn’t really make sense to charge people again for content that we’ve always wanted to put into the game. When Life Goes On: Done to Death launches later this year all the existing copies of Life Goes On will automatically be upgraded and receive the new content and features for free.
We can’t wait to get Life Goes On: Done to Death into players’ hands and we think you’ll really enjoy the experience. We’ll be posting more details about the content and features we’ll be adding over the coming months before the game lands later this year so stay with us. We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments so feel free to reach out!
We've updated to Unity 4.3! This should resolve the crash on startup bug that some users using Intel HD graphics were experiencing. Also we've worked with Intel to ensure that the bug was fixed on the driver side, so updating your Intel graphics drivers couldn't hurt.
The bug where the level select cursor would disappear when using a keyboard or controller has been fixed.
We've made some minor geometry tweaks to levels. So you can no longer beat a certain level with 0 deaths.
Game pad binding now only binds to the first controller.
Knights can no longer grab their falling comrades or grounded comrades.
The start menu can no longer be opened while looking at the achievements in game.
"All of the Things" should now unlock properly.
We've added a version number to the start menu.
Steam achievements should now unlock properly (except for 64 bit Linux users. Sorry we're working on it :( ).
We've fixed counting achievements for non Steam users.
We've made it easier for the band and have stopped playing level music and victory jingles over top of one another.
We've also given the band updated music sheets so they won't play the wrong music on the wrong level. Mostly.
We've decided to stop being mean and we now stop the level timer when the knight grabs the grail.
As a result of the above, some levels "secret" target times have been updated.
"All of the Things" will now unlock, albeit not properly. Whoops.
Non steam versions of the game now do not require Steam to be running.
Escape, Backspace, and a controller's "B" button now allow you to exit menus.

As with most news you read on the internet on April 1st, yesterday’s announcement of Life Goats On wasn’t serious. We hope that you enjoyed it though, and if you didn't see the fun, check out our blog post and video here.
Today we do have some unfortunate news though -- the Life Goes On launch date is being pushed back. Fortunately, it’s only 24 hours. The game will be available on the April 17th. We need the extra day to make some things work on our end, and we are very sorry for the delay. We promise that this token launch delay is absolutely not goat related...
To ease the pain of the extra day of waiting, we have some info about our later game content that we are revealing today. For more info, go to our blog.
We're also pleased to announce that Life Goes On will launch on Steam with a 25% launch week discount. This means that you can pick up LGO for $9.74 USD, instead of the regular $12.99 USD. The launch discount will also apply to international territories.
We are pleased to announce that Life Goes On is being released on April 16th at $12.99! We are very excited, as we have been working hard on all kinds of morbid ways to kill knights and can't wait for you to try it out!
The full game will feature:
Heroic Knights, dead bodies, and solving puzzles!
Over 50 levels to challenge you in morbid, yet fun, ways.
A fuzzy side-challenge lurking in every level.
