Will the Humble Store versions receive the new update?
Bought it from the Humble Store a while back, and now I bought it on Steam thanks to the 80% off sale. Great to see the game still getting love and attention as needed, but I'm curious if the new expansion, fixes, and improvements will be added to the Humble Store version as well?

Because the update is Steam-centric—with cards, achievements, and leaderboards—I'm not currently planning to put it on Humble. I could do it later if there's a good reason, but I don't have non-Steamworks builds prepared for it yet.

As a reminder, anyone who has purchased Eldritch from Humble (either via the Humble widget on eldritchgame.com, or through the Humble Store) should already have a Steam key for Eldritch in their Humble library!

That response was snappy....:D:

Bit of a bummer. I was hoping for a bit of feature parity, especially the Asylum expansion and the FOV fixes. While I mainly use Steam, I like having DRM free copies as well. They're nice especially for my laptop with its small storage since I can just throw on the installers for the select few games I want to bring along.

Also, I bought a Steam copy separately instead of redeeming the one I got from Humble Store because you're cool like that. :coolthulhu:

That is somewhat sad, I actually kinda like owning the stuff I pay for. But then, I got my money's worth out of the game and still get it out for another round from time to time. I'd have liked the new content, but tough luck, I guess.

BTW, there's actually still no DRM in the Steam version either; I only distinguish the Humble version as "DRM-free" because it's a standalone installer and some folks don't want to put Steam on their machines at all.

You can run the Steam version of Eldritch with Steam closed, or copy the files to a computer without Steam, and it will still run fine (though obviously, the Steam features won't work).

still no cake... I only have steam on windows, and play eldritch on linux. For various reasons I can't install a steam client on that machine (not to mention that I really don't want to...). I'm a fan of standalone installers :) Nonetheless, thanks for providing yert another update for your finished-on-release game, I appreciate that. And I am looking forward to your next game. Btw will that be steam only?

Thanks! I can't say for sure yet, but I imagine I'll put it on both Steam and Humble again.
