In amongst everything else going on this last week, there was one more that we didn’t show you – the brand new Tripwire Interactive Online Store: www.tripwireinteractivestore.com! This will become your source for all sorts of gear related to Tripwire games – starting with Killing Floor. In the past, you’ve seen items from Glitch Gear (which will soon be available through the store as well). Now there are some new Killing Floor items to be had – including a free, limited-time offer on the “Pukey the Clown” t-shirt! So go take a look – future visitors to the Tripwire office may find themselves drinking out Horzine corporate mugs, so why don’t you do the same? Go on – you know you want to hand over the dosh in return for some swag!
Thanks for the heads-up from some of the players: there was indeed a glitch preventing some of the Summer Sideshow achievements from working properly which, of course, made it pretty tricky to unlock Steampunk Mr Foster. Should all now be working fine – server admins will need to update servers, but all clients should update automatically through Steam.
And, we are happy to say, the Steampunk Character Pack DLC is also now available (http://store.steampowered.com/app/35425/) to buy and to use if you pick it up with tickets in the Prize Booth (http://store.steampowered.com/summersale/prizebooth/). Apologies again for the delays – remember, we are extending the Event through the weekend of 23/24 July due to the late start! make the most of it!
Well, the Carnival was late starting. We are sorry for being late and would like to blame all sorts of things for it – but it comes down to a bizarre and unlikely combination of mishaps (including the results of a hard drive crash, the heat, too many Krispy Kremes and sleepless nights). Your Killing Floor should now be updating…
And to prove that we love you really, we are extending the Summer Sideshow Event beyond its original dates, so it will run through the weekend of 23/24 July. So you have no excuse for not going after Steampunk Mr Foster!
And now you can go find Pukey the Clown and unload both barrels into him. My personal preference is a flame-thrower, but that is just me!
