  1. Hmm, I wonder if this will be released as an update for existing owners of the game or will it be sold as an entirely new game? It sounds like the latter.

    I’m nowhere near finishing the (supposedly short) original game (stuck on level 2, yes I suck) so the extra 2 hours gaming won’t matter to me.

  2. I am so happy I did not end up buying this in one of the nice steam sales now.
    Any news if the new levels are an extension of the story or just more filler in-between in the original Hard Reset?
