When we announced Roundabout, Polygon commenter Bitrona mentioned that they didn’t like the people splattering:

This is also something we heard a bit at PAX East as well - while a lot of people loved our blood splatters, it’s also something that makes some people uncomfortable. We don’t want to make stuff that makes people uncomfortable, so we brainstormed up some things to fix that.
The big one is that we’ve added a “No Violence” extra that you can turn on while playing Roundabout. When you turn this modifier on, people turn into fun stars and a “boing” sound plays instead of a blood splat.

Roundabout Pedestrian Audio

Hi hello! I need some help with the game I’m making! It’s called Roundabout and you play as a spinning limousine! 

What I need help with is that the limo hits a LOT of people, like you mow the fuck over dudes and splat em to the pavement. These people need voices!! This is where all of ya’ll come in.

We need you to record yourself as a pedestrian in the city of Roundabout! Details are under the cut!

See a mountain? You can go there.
While we were doing our website and press revisions for the release date announce, the following Twitter exchange happened:

@deliciousbees Better yet, rename a location in-game to “A Mountain” and let players visit it.

Consider it done. Thanks for the suggestion, Rory!

ANNOUNCEMENT TIME!

Roundabout is coming to Steam and the Humble Store on September 18th. Look at that! Not long now until all this FMV spinning craziness will be in your hands.

We’ve also updated roundaboutgame.com along with the date announcement. You can preorder both the normal and Deluxe Edition versions of Roundabout for 20% off over there!

But that’s not all!

We’re also going to be bringing some open world puzzle limo spinning action the the PlayStation 4!

A PS4 version has been our most requested thing to do, so we’re pretty psyched that we’ll be bringing Roundabout to it. Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will be out early 2015.

any game that allows you to be made of gold is a good gmae

20 minutes ago we were not a good gmae. Now we are. Paint job added. Thanks for the inadvertent suggestion!

Happy Canada Day! What better day to introduce you to Roundabout’s newest passenger, “Canadian Tourist Guy”.
Canadian Tourist Guy is played by the one and only Danny Baranowsky. If you haven’t heard his music, you should go to his bandcamp page now - he’s the insanely talented guy behind music in Super Meat Boy, The Binding of Isaac, Canabalt, and much, much more.
Danny’s acting performance also means that we can legally say that we have some Danny Baranowsky magic in our video game, making us 37% more indie in the process. 
Also, while you’re here, this is the last week that we’ll be doing the 33% off “early bird” discount for Roundabout pre-orders. Want in on crazy savings? Just use the Humble Widget at the top of this page or on roundaboutgame.com.
$10 gets you both a Steam key and a DRM-free copy of the game (which is $15 by itself at full price), as well as a crazy bonus pack of art, music, old builds and “special” builds like our April Fool’s Georgio Cam.
