They plan to launch on Steam on the 7th of January as well. May have to pick this one up myself as it looks like nothing else i've seen, long live fun-looking indie games that aren't re-hashes!
It's $10 using the Humble Store widget right now, I think it's a bloody bargain.
Yeah, this looks pretty sweet - and we covered it as a Hidden Gem in TFC #23 too. It got an absurdly high income for a flexible funding game - over $14k of its $20k target. Great to see it go from strength to strength!
Quote from PitSo do you actually get the game via the humblestore, or just a steam key so you can access it on Jan 7 via Steam?
I've got the exact same doubt. Their website doesn't say anything about it...
EDIT: I've checked their site again and I've now realized there's an image promoting both Steam and DRM-free versions, so it is to be expected to get a DRM-free download when buying the game through the Humble widget.

Thanks for the hint - I must have overlooked this. So I did give it a try and baought it. Indeed, you get a zip with the alpha version, and a promise for the (final) DRM-free version. The steam key is additional. Thumbs up for this.
