TRAUMA in the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle

I’m happy to announce that my game TRAUMA is now available as part of the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle. You can get it and the other awesome bundle games for as much as you want. Do it!

Needless to say that I’m super-excited for this. The Humble Bundle was actually the template for many decisions I made concerning the distribution and the web design of TRAUMA. Interestingly, this newest promotion was made possible by the fact that TRAUMA was released on all 3 platforms. Considering the how vocal the Linux community is in general, I’m starting to understand better why going multi-platform is so important. It’s something I will certainly focus on in the future.

Speaking of multi-platform, the game is also out on Desura and Direct2Drive. They Desura guys have been very keen on having TRAUMA as one of their first Linux games.

As you can see, there is still a lot going on right now. There are even more releases coming up. But for now, I’m going to play some ICO. ;P

    Nice, Congrats!
    Did you have any input on the icon? I find it amusing.

      The guys from Humble Bundle did the icon. It’s not the kind of icon I would have made. But on the other hand, they consistently chose to show characters in their icons and that’s the closest to a character TRAUMA has. It’s true that it doesn’t reflect the style of the game perfectly. But I think it’s close enough.

    Freu freu!

    PS: I thought the humble bundle icons are done by Arne Niklas Jansen / Android Arts, did he do yours, too? I think while it finds totally not to the style of trauma its definitely making people very curious and i guess it will boost the sales additionally.


The Game Design Scrapbook is a second blog of group of three game designers from Germany.
