Update #12

Chasm Goes Humble!

The awesome folks over at the Humble Bundle contacted us earlier this week to let us know not only how amazing they think Chasm is, but also that they wanted it on the Humble Store! After speaking with them, it became apparent that they'd be able to deliver a much higher quality digital fulfillment service than we ever could, while allowing us to focus our efforts where they matter most: making an awesome game.

So what exactly does this mean? Two things. The first is that all Kickstarter digital reward fulfillment will be handled by Humble. Each backer will have a special page created for them on Humble's site where they can go to download all the files from their Tier, as well as generate their Steam keys should we be Greenlit. The second is that we now have a pre-order system up on chasmgame.com that's powered by the Humble Store. This pre-order system has no time limit other than the completion of the game, so we'll be able to keep striving for these Stretch Goals long after the Kickstarter ends.

The Humble Store currently supports Paypal, Amazon Payments, and Google Wallet - so just about everyone should be able to pledge now. We're super excited to be partnered with Humble for Chasm, and believe it's not only the best solution for us, but for our backers and fans as well!

      @Michele The Humble store copies do not include the extra copy of the game like Kickstarter, so they are priced a bit differently.

      I don't understand. Usually is good practise to avoid giving the same reward on kickstarter elsewhere. But in this case to me it seems that they are also cheaper on the site. Correct me if I am wrong.

      The stretch goals are a particular highlight for me. I'd love the ability to play a female lead, while features like crafting and new game + just feel like perfect fits for the game. And who could resist an extra area!

      It's nice to hear that distribution will be simplified for you by going through the Humble Store. It's also pretty cool that Chasm is getting the recognition it deserves by being considered for such an arrangement.

      Legend of Dungeon (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/robotloveskitty/legend-of-dungeon) also used Humble Bundle for their deliverable. However, when they updated it, there was no notification that went out to backers. So, please post updates on the Kickstarter page when making updates on Humble Bundle.

      @Mircea Chasm will always be DRM-free from our side, but Steam is basically their own DRM in a way. You'll always still be able to download the DRM-free copy outside of Steam though if you wish.

      Creator Mircea on May 8, 2013

      So if it's done through Steam will it still be DRM free?

      Soon cool about the humble bundle and the fact that you can work towards the stretch goals after the fact. Really cool way of doing things. Keep up the great work... Really looking forward to this.

      Woohoo! I love it when two or more groups / services I love come together. It's a beautiful thing - I'm glad that the folks at Humble are so interested in helping you out :)
