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 <<<[humblebundle.com]

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 support@kittylambda.com 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!

Sounds good. I picked it up it years ago on GoG, but DLC would be cool. I wouldn't mind another playthrough.

Brian I totally appreciate the support. It *will* come to Steam, basically what happened is I started development on a new project while TRT was in Greenlight. TRT ended up getting greenlit a lot earlier than I had expected, in fact at that point I wasn't sure it would ever get Greenlit as there were only about 10 games per month coming through and TRT wasn't even in the top 100 yet.

When it DID come thru it was sort of unexpected, I didn't want to do a "quick and dirty" job of bringing TRT to Steam, rather I wanted to add achievements, fix some bugs, and possibly some other announced things too :)

To sort of say "thank you" when it hits Steam it will have a pretty major DLC added to it (for free) which will hopefully make it somewhat worth the wait. So hopefully I can make good on that, better-late-then-never sort of thing :)

Back in 2013 I bought this, upvoted it, and told all my friends about it in the hope it would come to Steam.

Two years later it still isn't here, the dev is working on something else, and I wish I hadn't wasted my money and time.

Thanks Soli :)

Paradise never is looking fantastic as well. Looking forward to both games hitting Steam.

Thanks Soli! I'm working full-time on Paradise Never (paradisenever.com) and want to make the Steam release special. So it'll probably hit Steam AFTER Paradise Never, but when it does it will be worth the wait (I hope) as it's going to have a whole extra free DLC add-on. :) Thanks again everyone for your support and patience!

Any word on when this is coming to Steam yet? Amazing game, been looking forward to seeing it on Steam since it was one of the earlier games Greenlit.
