YSWMI Update 1: Out Now!

1 Comment

We’re happy to announce YSWMI Update 1 is live today!


Linux Version: 

An awesome Linux version of YSWMI is now live! We’ve tested it on Ubuntu 13.04 but we’re guessing it should run on any Linux system with the right dependencies installed (and, of course, you can download the free and awesome Linux demo to test out the game on your system first).

18 New Levels:

The 18 Classic levels from You Probably Won’t Make It have been added to YSWMI, all with fancy new graphics! Try them out, they’re really hard. :)



With that (probably) poorly written and grammatically incorrect Japanese sentence, we introduce You Still Won’t Make It to the land of the rising sun. With a (hopefully) grammatically correct translation of the game, courtesy of a native speaker, that is. If you have any Japanese friends, please let them know about the game!よろしくお願いします!

Korean and Chinese soon to come!

Gamepad support: 

We’ve fixed the gamepad input on the game itself (a bugfix), and we’ve added gamepad support to the main menu, for good measure. There’s still no support on the Options screen, but it’s a nice start. :)


We’ve reduced the memory footprint of the game, as well as patching some pretty massive and embarrassing memory leaks. Amongst other things. Full screen mode on Mac OS X now fills the entire screen, too.

New death effects: 

We’ll keep it a secret, but you might find them fun, or not, depending on your tastes. Go complain to Marty with your pitchforks and torches, it was his idea after all. ;)

How to upgrade: 

Now that you know why you should upgrade, it’s time to tell you *how* to upgrade. YSWMI Update 1 has the version number 1.1.0 so be sure to watch out for that in places like Desura.


If you have Desura installed, the client should automatically patch the game for you. Alternatively you can download for Linux using the Linux client or download a .DMG from the Desura website for your Mac.

Humble Widget: 


As you can see, the Humble website automatically lets you know when a new version of the game is available. For good measure, all YSWMI Update 1 files have the number 1 on them for easy identification.

Simply download, and replace the old YSWMI version with the YSWMI Update 1 executable.

Other storefronts: 

Mac App Store users should get the update as soon as it is approved by Apple. Likewise with IndieGameStand customers.

Enjoy Update 1, and be sure to let us know if you have any suggestions!

    For some reason my xbox 360 afterglow controller works when I play this game within xubuntu 12.04.3 running kernel 3.0.7 BUT it does NOT work in Xubuntu 13.10 running kernel 3.11.0-15-generic. What does the game use for the controller? Does it use /dev/input js0 OR eventX???
