Sorry, piggybacking a little, this is a related question but for Windows.

Was there supposed to be a direct download option through Humble Bundle for Windows as well? There was no warning about it on their store page and since I purchased the game through BMT Micro last year and never intended for it to be on Steam at all, so I had just sent in a refund ticket earlier this evening.

Gog.com probably does this just fine, but they wouldn't allow the expansion to be purchased unless you had purchased the base game through them. Does that mean that if there's no direct download for Windows through Humble Bundle that there isn't any way to purchase a DRM-free version of just the expansion?

The DRM-Free Symbol on the Shop-page (https://www.humblebundle.com/store/big- ... alpractice) disappeared too.

OK this is really weird.

@cgmoo, to be really clear: it is definitely possible to play Big Pharma and its expansion completely DRM free and the Humble widget is the perfect way to do that. It just looks like the Humble guys are having weird issues at their end.

We pushed an update out with some bug fixes for the standalone version at the end of last week and I suspect this has messed up their system again. I will get my publisher to send them another email and get it sorted out.

Sorry about this, but don't fear. You can definitely play the game DRM-free.

By the way, we are keeping the BMT micro link you were sent updated too, so make sure you download a fresh copy of the base game too to make sure everything plays nicely together.

Thanks for the feedback Roidal. I'll get in touch with Humble again and see if they can get this fixed.

That is good news Roidal. Humble have been in touch and it seems they've managed to fix it but I still don't understand the underlying problem. It seems to occur every time we upload a new build.

cgmoo, is it working for you now too?

Thanks Roidal. It's the same issue. I just don't get it. I'm looping in my publisher so he can contact them.

EDIT: Well not quite the same issue. As you point out this time it's the base game that doesn't work. ;)
