Jasper Byrne of Superflat World has announced the release date and price oh his highly-anticipated side-scrolling survival horror Lone Survivor!
We’ve been waiting for ages but now the news has arrived at last! Lone Survivor will be released on March 27th 2012 for PC and Mac. There will be two editions up for grabs: the Standard Edition will cost $10 and will grant you the game and DRM-free updates for life.
While the First Aid Edition will cost $50 and will not only allow for Superflat World’s future games to remain as freeware, but will give you the Lone Survivor OST, an exclusive short game to be finished afterwards (LS3D – a side adventure to Lone Survivor) as well as a couple of mystery gifts, such as scans of designs and artwork from the game, to be decided. Below is a picture from LS3D (Lone Survivor 3D obviously):
Jasper says he would like to add some more endings to the game in the future to make replays worthwhile. He also adds that the first 1200 purchasers will receive the Soul Brother OST for free, which is priced at $5 otherwise.
You’ll be able to purchase Lone Survivor via its official website which isn’t live yet. There will also be a demo that you can play in your browser over there too. An official launch trailer is on the way but for now this one below will have to do.
More information on Lone Survivor can be found on the official Superflat World development blog.
