Post by Pavke » Mon Apr 11, 2011 5:51 am

*POST EDITED BY PAVKE!*

At first I was exited to be first one to see the news but now I see Its better to keep this quite.
Will not reveal any more information!

Sorry to Wolfire about this threat, I hope they are not angry at me.

Since I follow Wolfire development in every way possible, and haven't seen this, it's fake.

The best part of knowing first is keeping it secret. Watch how other people stumble to understand.

Anyway, it's gonna be awesome.

Well as of right now, it looks like someone isn't aware of that fact...
so you can head over to that place that starts with a k and ends with a u or just wonder why i put this random url here.
<< never mind I don't need to put the url of a completely bogged down site here >>

It isn't really nice calling me fake. No mater witch forum I visit I always try to be respectful part of the community.

you werent the first one to see that ;)
and second of all this isnt the hib #3, everybody seems to get this wrong.
this is a special bundle called humble frozenbyte bundle.
a humble indie bundle contains multiple games from different defs.
youtube failed epicly and thats why it got leaked, and then people went on and wanted to
karma whore and now its over the internet everywhere ...

and keeping "secrets" secrets makes you way more special then spreading it.

I don't think it's entirely your fault. I don't know the whole story, but what I am assuming is that you managed to see the website or the video as it was uploaded before they could fix it, and thus by the time you posted the link they had fixed it, causing the confusion.

Anyways, I'm not entirely sure I'm interested in the games here, and not only that I don't really have that much money (I usually spend about 10 dollars on these) so I'm afraid this is a miss for me.

Aye, sorry, but a link would have helped avoid the confusion.

Can't assume you know everything about wolfire just cause you follow them in every way possible, for example some people knew about the overgrowth name and website well in advance because jeff asked for testers, and yet there was no forum post or blog post for quite a while.

For those curious, there were three things that happened.

a) YouTube mistakenly emailed a small number of our subscribers John's unlisted Frozenbyte video, including Pavke. This is a pretty serious security flaw in YouTube. It wasn't a huge deal though.

b) We emailed a few sites about the bundle in advance to give them time to write good articles about it. Despite politely asking people to keep it secret, Kotaku decided to go ahead and reveal it to their readers. Kotaku is one of the largest gaming blogs, so the cat was really was out of the bag.

c) Once word got out on Kotaku other sites began to break the "embargo" as well and soon our unlisted YouTube video become the #1 Reddit story about 8 hours before we were ready to launch. :)

It's not a huge deal, but that's what happened.
