Rochard, the puzzle-platformer that has the distinct honour of being the first ever Unity3D game released for Linux thanks to its inclusion with Humble Indie Bundle 6, now has a little more content. Developer Recoil Games have released their "Hard Times" DLC on Steam for all three supported platforms, including Linux.
QuoteToday Recoil Games is excited to announce brand new upcoming DLC for its critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer Rochard. Titled ‘Hard Times’, the new content will be available soon and includes four new, incredibly challenging puzzle levels: ‘Container Chaos’, ‘Shaft Shuffle’, ‘Brainyard’ and ‘Assembly Line’. These levels were created as a response to fans that found the original stages a bit too ‘easy’. The ‘Hard Times’ content is designed to use all of the existing game mechanics, with an emphasis on puzzle-solving as opposed to combat, and offers a difficult test for even the most experienced players.
When it comes to people wanting to purchase the DLC through other means, people who have already bought it direct from the developer through their Humble Store widget should receive a copy of it free of charge, while people who own Rochard thanks to Humble Indie Bundle 6 are unfortunately for the moment forced to grab it off of Steam only.
Recoil Games has said that they are still looking for other potential distribution platforms however, and I have already suggested Desura to them as a possible alternative option for those who would like to purchase it outside of Steam.
