What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...

Features:
- Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy to defeat. You like that stuff, right?
- 16 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry
- 10 awardments to earn and make you feel reasonably satisfied with yourself

- Brand new full length campaign
- 17 more DLC packs to collect
- 10 more awardments to earn
- New speedrun timer and post-game statistic

Download the update through the Desura or grab one of the newly updated standalone installers.

Happy questing!

NO, watch out this side under the "BUY"-option:

That doesn't really answer the question of whether people who bought the Desura version before the Steam version even existed will get a key, only what future buyers will get.

Also, amazing game. The original campaign alone has tons of replay value and is hilarious. I'm yet to try out the 'Freemium or Die' expansion but I just hope for something equally as good.

I know that you posted this awhile back, in response to spookybro's comment, but this game is easily an hour long if yo udo everything to perfection with tons of replay value on the original alone. I got 3 hours of genuien entertainment out of this game. It's a spoof but it's done well.

I bought the game on XBox 360. Will the new campaign be added on the X-Box 360 version?

DLC Quest and Live Freemium or Die are separate campaigns on Xbox LIVE Indie Games (and are 80 MS points each accordingly).

Though it was short, i liked it. It's very cheap and worth it for making you smile. :D I recommend it.

Short, but very enjoyable and worth what you're paying for.

Underneath its somewhat funny satire, it's just a very short and very basic platformer, even with all DLC. One might say that's part of the joke, but "it's bad on purpose" doesn't really make it worth playing.
