Meanwhile launching on Steam on January 17th

The coming soon page for Meanwhile is now live on Steam! It will be available for Mac and Windows. Our planned launch date is January 17th.
(I'd like to support Linux, but I haven't figured out how to get or build the SkiaSharp library in a way which will reliably work for Linux gamers. Feel free to drop me hints!)
I intend to also release the game on Itch.IO. I haven't set up the Itch page yet, but I'll link it when the time comes.
If you're new to Meanwhile, it's an adaptation of Jason Shiga's groundbreaking interactive comic book. A thrilling tale of quantum mechanics and self-discovery with 3,856 story possibilities!
This Steam release has been a long road. The original iPhone version of Meanwhile appeared in 2011; I've been working on the Unity port since August of this year. Jason and I are excited to finally get it out the door.


  1. I just visited the Steam page; I think you have a typo in the last sentence of the third paragraph ('you are free to browse the around').

  2. BTW, the Itch page is up: https://zarf.itch.io/meanwhile

    Same price, same release date, DRM-free purchase.

  3. Very excited for this!

    By the way, will Hadean Lands ever take part in a sale on Steam? It's been on my wish list for a long time and it's the only game on the list that has never been discounted at all.

    1. Glad you're interested!

      As for HL -- as everyone knows, answering questions about sale plans is a lose-lose situation for developers. All I can say is, if you want to play the game now, buy it now; if you want to play it later, buy it later. You know how it is.
