Don't Move is coming soon to Steam!
AN UPDATE
Description
Release date: Q2 2016

Don't Move is an experimental puzzle platformer with a focus on ludonarrative dissonance and player investment manipulation. My goal was to create a game that explored these concepts in a familiar setting (the classically-styled platformer) with a minimum of distractions from the core concept. Of course, there are also lots of secrets!


Don't Move will be available on Steam for only $1, which will include access to all versions of the game, including Android, as well as the soundtrack. Everyone who has previously purchased Don't Move (via Humble, Desura, IndieGameStand. or itch.io) will get a complimentary Steam key!


Not only will Steam allow me to bring my game to a larger audience, it will also vastly simplify the process of installing and updating. Furthermore, I plan to take full advantage of Steam features such as achievements, trading cards, leaderboards, Big Picture Mode, cloud saves, and support for SteamOS.

"Don't Move, for me, quickly drives home the point that achievements and challenges can be misused and result in 'non-optimal gameplay decisions... past the point where the game is fun'."

"Don't Move is supposedly a game about 'ludonarrative dissonance and player investment manipulation'. What it actually looks like is a twisted social experiment of some sort."

I think that it's want to make a point similar to Edmund's "AVGM", that some videogames like clickers or time-killers are just a waste of time and have nothing but false sence of accomplishment in 'em.

Interesting It looks like that update was posted on the same day I made my previous posted here. Coincidence? Possibly. Possibly not. Either way, good news.

Casual Toast, you're wrong. In the update he said that anyone who purchased it in a bundle will get their steam key shortly after release. Who knows what "shortly" means, but you'll get your keys

Thanks for the info, Casual Toast.

But why would there be keys? You can't even buy it on steam, yet.
The page you linked only states, that it will be released soon.

However, there was a link to a statement on the page, that said the following:
"Many people have bought Don't Move through bundles, the Humble Bundle store, Desura, itch.io, etc. Shortly after release, you will all receive Steam keys."

FYI

It's finally on steam.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/334350

However, if you bought this way back when it was part of the Humble Indie Bundle 11, you'll find that when you check your HIB account, there's still no steam key. Where the steam key would normally go, your account page for HIB 11 will still only have a link to Don't Move's Greenlight page.

Basically, if when you bought that bundle hoping for a Donlt Move steam key when the game was greenlighted, don't hold your breath. I highly doubt you'll get one. So after all that waiting, you'll still have to buy the game again if you want it on steam.
