'140' is a weird but effective indie platformer that was released for Linux a long time ago, where you control an abstract figure in a psychedelic environment that changes according to the music. As of today, the game has overall 'overwhelmingly positive' reviews by Steam users.

According to this official announcement, to celebrate the release of the game soundtrack the developers are adding a whole new level along with Trading Cards on Steam and several bug fixes and performance improvements.

Although I never beat the game, because there was a sudden increase in difficulty when you faced the third and last boss. The game was very short, so I guess a new level was a good idea to lessen this problem. Unfortunately, at least in my case, the game now crashes as soon as I start it; the developer is aware of this issue but even when I tried that suggested option I still didn't have any luck, so for those of you who already have the game, feel free to share about the quality of this new level (the update is totally free if you own it).

In case you don't have it, you can get the game on Steam, GOG and Humble Bundle (DRM-Free version included), though you might want to check on GOG, since it currently has the highest discount.

I went through the whole game yesterday, and the GOG version has worked perfectly fine for me. Might be luck on my end and not a Steam specific bug though.

Worked perfectly with the steam version for me. Loved the new level.
I'd blame proprietary drivers.

steam, arch, intel HD, works perfectly on me.

But I hate them! I was so proud that I completed the game (and the mirror). Now it is not complete again?? Damn!

Also what is your problem with "short" games. I love short games especially 140 type. Game like this the longer, the worst are for me. I just want to try them, have their difficulty but finish them and go on with my life. I do not want length. 140 had the perfect length.

Yes, finished it!

(not the inverted levels, mind you )
The expansion is very nice, but quite hard. I should have slept instead ^^

Arch, AMD (R600) no problems here.

I played this a while ago (not inverted) and really enjoyed it. I think I will have to start from the beginning to remember my skills if there is a new level...

It depends on every game, but for this one, I just felt there was potential for more content, and it was a shame that it ended so abruptly.
