The Real Texas part of the Humble Weekly Sale
What the Heck is Mesquite Anyways? It's wood.

Hey Everybody!

Great news for anybody who is (patiently) waiting for The Real Texas to hit Steam, you can pick it up now PWYW as part of this week's Humble Weekly Sale:

>>> Humble Weekly Sale Starting April 17 <<<[]

THERE ARE OTHER COOL GAMES IN THIS BUNDLE! My personal faves are Cryptic Sea EP and KRUNCH, but I hear good stuff about the other ones too :)

Yeah Yeah But Will I Get a Steam Key

Of course! I'm not like, Ciril Sneer (though I do want to deforest the entire earth, but that's a story for another day.)
  • If you buy the bundle, the game will redeem on Steam when it's finally available here.
  • If you bought direct or through another bundle, you'll get a Steam key then, too.
  • If you bought it through FastSpring and want it in your Humble Library, just email me with your original order #

The only way I can see this going horribly, horribly wrong would be if Valve changed their police and was all like, "no you can't just give codes anymore." But the chances of this happening are basically nil, they've never even slightly said they ever even thought about doing that. So yeah! So long as it's in my control, of course you'll get a dang Steam thinguie.

Now, about that Steam Release... :)

So just as a quick update, there's NO ETA for Steam release but it'll happen. I'm heavily into my next project right now which is the main reason this has taken so long, but also I've been working bit by bit on a significant addition to the game for when it hits Steam. So it will still be awhile longer (all the more reason to just grab it now, if you want it!) but when it finally hits Steam there will be something extra and cool for you

Not spoiling it, but it'll be reason enough to go back to the game even if you finished it already.

Thanks for your patience everybody! I'm really just one guy, when Texas got greenlit it was a bit of a surprise but I want to make the Steam release something exciting for you, and not do a halfway job :)

Have a great weekend!

"... a unique experience unlike anything you'd find on store shelves ... an extremely well-written adventure through an incredibly quirky universe." - Destructoid (8.5 / 10)

"Having played though the entire game and loved the entire experience, I have to say it would be criminal were this game not to be Greenlighted! It'll be an experience which will stay with you long after completing it." - therealspratt (Greenlight comments)

"... there are few modern games that are so uniquely engrossing." -

"Easy-going RPG that'll charm your pants off." - The Indie Gaming Magazine (82%)

Coming soonish hopefully! :) Progress on the DLC add-on thing (almost like a mini-sequel) is going good, I've been spending more time on it lately.

I added a more thorough explanation to the discussions page in case anyone is frustrated this is taking so long (it's frustrating to me, too, as you may imagine :)

I really think you should put the game as it is now on steam and add achievements, dlc or whatever you want to it later. We've been waiting years.
