according to Ed, Isaac is second highest grossing game on Steam so congrats to him on that.

He also goes on to confirm what he said on the Man vs Game stream and that the game will get a free content update this comming month and says there is another fix inbound for this weekend..actually you guys can read for yourselves



little launch update

So there were a few minor bumps with the launch, came out a few hours late, the launch build was actually an older beta build without achievements and minor music issues.. but we were able to update asap and patch the issues right away.

For most of the day Isaac was the #2 highest grossing game on Steam! amazing stuff! thanks to everyone who picked it up and did video play throughs, podcasts and livestreams of the game, its been yet another surreal launch experience .

It might not make sense to most, but launching a game really takes an emotional tole on you regardless of how the game does, so i really want to thank all of you who went out of their ways to live stream the game, sent me awesome emails and fan pics, you really picked me up.... so now to give back!

Well as i mentioned in my previous post, there has been a lot of talk about a Halloween patch next month if the game was received well, this is obviously the case. So on oct.31st be ready for a very dark and jam packed FREE update to isaac, that will add a lot more to the game... but 1st.

Kill mom already!

update notes:
-We are aware of a few bugs (wall bug, secret room bug, alt tab bug, etc) and are compiling an update for this weekend that should fix them.

-The Mac version of the game IS saving your achievements, but not rewarding them yet. Tommy is currently working on an app to fix this this week.. so dont worry mac people, all your achievements are there in your save and will be unlocked on steam once we patch the game!

-Anyone still not getting achievements on Pc after they have updated, delete your local content and redownload the game, it will fix any issues.

Always been a fan of McMullen's work, good to see him breaking out of New Grounds to actually publish games, and it's good to see that he's being successful in it.

He's come a long way since that site with all the dead baby jokes on it. :p

Kind of curious how these developers confuse builds. Dead Island did it with the "dev build" being uploaded to Steam, now, Edmund uploaded a Beta build.

"It might not make sense to most, but launching a game really takes an emotional tole on you regardless of how the game does..."

Yup, and raking money in "hand over fist" I bet brings those emotions right back up ;)

Either way, I find the game pretty enjoyable, outside of the no native controller support (being that this is a Flash game, that complaint has been answered) and the no save feature (saves after every boss would be cool), I am having a pretty good time with it.

Anyone know how to delete you "local content" for a Windows XP user? I'm having an issue that I think would be solved if I could find it.

He won't get a penny till months later.

Right click the game in your games list and choose delete local content :).
