Someone else reported the same thing here. It sounds like if you try again it might work for you. I've downloaded it twice now and it's the right size. Seems like there might be a bad copy cached on a download server, since you both saw 13 megabytes.

I think more likely there's a bigger problem since that person and I were many hours appart in d/l'ing it.

It's working right now; dunno why it took trying a couple times ot get it working.

20 milion dollars/euros

Even after cuts for Valve and whomnot... OH MY GOD.


So, lets crunch some numbers here...

Lets say, for this, that Wube keeps 60% of this, after valve and taxes and such.
And for arguments sake, lets say 1usd is equal 1euro.

Then we are at 12mill euros

According to wikipedia Wube software is about 3 years old, with the founder working on the game about 2 year more.
The same wiki saies there are 5 people working on the game. Im not sure if that is accurate, but lets say its 1,5 that, in average, over 3 years, plus half of that in the 2 beforehand.
That makes (5*1,5*3)+(2,5*2) = 28 man years, but there is probably some overtime etc, so say 30 man years.
GDP per capita in the Czech Republic is roughly 22000$, and lets assume that programmers make about 1,5 times that, add emplyment tax, insurance etc, and that numbers is probably about 50.000$ per year for the company, maybe even more.
We are now at 1.5mill euros/dollars.
There are most likely some other expenses, office rent, ISPs, server rent, purchase of computers, testing gear, Unity licence (its in unity, right?), and lets for arguments sake, say that the expenses are now doubled.

We are still looking at a blonde one from a multi-million euro/dollar/pound profit. All I can say is! The next game from Wube is gonna be even more awesomeer with a chooch factor to 11! #AvE


That's why the developers are so relaxed and can create this awesome game without pressure.

After being a freebie for a year, you finnaly got what you deserved from another customer. this game gave me some relaxation for my mind in a time when i needed just something like this and i loved to pay for my "grab in advance" later on. because the improvements even if they looks so small with each version deserved atleast that much when i'm able to buy it, so others who are in a roughsituation my find their middle again too to freeup their head. ;)

Congrats! You guys deserve every penny of it! I don't know what exactly to say about the party. I wish it was a bit closer to home, as I'm from the Netherlands.

What I find quite funny is that this is literally a dream coming true, as I posted this as reaction to #186 - Marathon testing, at the peak of the 0.15 hype and I woke up totally excited.

Then a big red button is shown and images of Factorio factories and the new features were flowing together into other images (I can't explain better but it looked really cool in my dream). Then a big rocket ready for launch in the middle of a massive factory was shown (in a nice 3d animation), the engines ignited and the screen faded to black with the final text "0.15". Then the place turned into a Factorio 0.15 launch party and everyone was having fun. I remember thinking should I go home to play 0.15? Nah I just want to party for now.

Congratulations on the 1M mark!

And, while I'm here, thanks for making a demo version. It's a rare opportunity these days to try a game (legally) before you buy it, and the demo helped me feel comfortable sinking what was, at the time, a lot of money on it.

Allegro licence?

(sorry, couldn't resist. Also, Allegro is in this dictionary, it doesn't even have words like "Electrolyser" in it >.>)
