The latest update to Super Crate Box [$1.99] introduces a new kind of crate, developer Vlambeer told us via e-mail this afternoon. Version 1.1, which just hit, adds extremely rare, and random, golden crates. In all, there are just 100 to collect globally. Also, as if that wasn't Willy Wonka enough for you, a rare golden enemy type is being added, as well. As soon as fans find all of the golden crates, Vlambeer plans to release the next update.

This update will also introduce two more indie characters to unlock: one from Starguard, and the other from Psychosomnium. Bug fixes, tweaks, and prep work for version 1.2 are also expected to drop when this hits. Oh! And the first person to download this will score the world's very first golden crate. Dibs!

    Guys, just a little mistake: The update it's the version 1.1.5, not 1.1

  • The Mad Mule

    Good to know that they haven't abandoned this game. I was just thinking about deleting it last night.

    This game desperately needs new maps. 


    All the releasing updates when players collect a certain amount of crates is getting a bit old now and just looks like a way for them to keep trying to get in the news. They simply can not put out updates as fast as the thousands or millions of users can collect the items.
    The update crate counter was sat at 0 for weeks if not months before this "update" has been released and this update just basically comes down to resetting the crate counter for the next "update"
