All new look, same great game!
I got the illustrious Core43 to go through the game and add wonderful texturing to all the machines, greatly improving the fantastic-ness of the game! We’ve also updated the demo to reflect these changes; and you can see screenshots at www.facebook.com/AcceleratedDelivery! Head over to the demo page to pick it up!
Today, the demo was released through the IndieCity client. IndieCity is a digital distribution service similar to Steam, but specifically for independent game developers.

DEMO leveled up!
Unfortunately, I forgot to include an updated changelog and I don’t want to take the ten or fifteen minutes to rebuild the installer and upload it just for the sake of a couple hundred bytes. But I digress; the demo has been updated to v0.7β! Here’s a complete list of changes:

- Bugfix: Instructions no longer shows results screen on completion
- Bugfix: Xbox controller support is fully operational
- Bugfix: You should no longer get the “unhandled exception” box when switching resolutions
- Bugfix: Voice acting/machine noises didn’t pause when controller was disconnected
- Bugfix: Probably fixed music stopping when switched back to
- Bugfix: More fixes related to the box at the top of the options menu
- Bugfix: Crashes at end of levels
But, possibly more importantly, we’ve created a new installer (with a few contributions from one Jeffery Long) that actually installs prerequisites and creates shortcuts and everything! You can find it on the demo page! Happy gaming!
