We are receiving email from players about old version support and about troubles to run game on old hardware. Few words - You still can play it! Let me explain some moments.

Steam have 3 versions of the game (you can switch it in the game preferences):
- Default - Modern stable version for everyone.
- Legacy - The old original game released in 2011. Use it on old hardware.
- Beta - New version of release candidate.

Few words about plans:
- We plan to add better support for fullscreen mode.
- We'll add image smooth algorithm for big screens.
- We'll add achievements and cards.

Suggestions!?

Best,
Colibris.

Gosh, this is excellent news. When I first wrote about indie puzzle/adventure The Tiny Bang Story I wanted only to sing its praises, but I was held back by what seemed just too high a fee for such a short game. I’m so delighted to say that the game has been relaunched on Steam, now at the perfect price of £7, and there’s even a demo. This is a lovely game that a genre description does not fairly summarise. While it’s a combination of casual adventure and hidden object, I want you to throw your preconceptions and prejudices aside. This thing is heartfelt and sweet. Have a read of my article about it here, but substitute the price concerns for, “BUY THIS IF YOU HAVE ROOM FOR LOVELINESS AND JIGSAWS IN YOUR LIFE.”

The Tiny Bang Story is now available on Mac and Steamplay.

The Tiny Bang Story is set on the fictitious world, Tiny Planet. When an asteroid hits, its fragile world breaks into pieces. You'll have to recover its lost beauty and help the population of Tiny Planet. Through five chapters, you'll solve numerous puzzles and fix imaginative machines in a point & click environment.

That’s if you have a spare £12 on Steam (or even £15 £12 now too – the power we wield! – on GamersGate) for a game that should probably cost closer to £6. Just browsing through Steam I spotted a recent addition I realised we’d not written about yet, and wondered if that meant it was the usual “casual” blather. It’s not. The Tiny Bang Story is absolutely lovely.
