Is a November release realistic at this point?

Postby MaxwellDemonic » Wed Oct 07, 2015 9:17 am

Just to head this off, I'm not complaining. I'm curious if the original November 2015 release timeframe is still within reach or if it will be pushed back. So far every game I've kickstarted has gone over their estimated completion date so I'd be in no way surprised if it did.

Keep up the good work, every update fuels the hype-train a little more ^^

Hey Maxwell! The game was delayed on the 1 year anniversary of the Kickstarter, but I haven't gotten around to updating the website 100% to match the new deadline. The dates are now more ambiguous:

- Steam Early Access in 2016 July
- Full release (on PC + PS4 + Vita) 'sometime' after that
- 3DS 'sometime' after the final release

The reason for the ambiguous final release date is because it's difficult to tell how much polish work will be needed after Early Access, and porting may take longer than anticipated. I'll continue to do weekly Livestreams of development on Twitch, if it makes sense NDA-wise, so that fans can always see progress being made on the game.

Let me know if you have anymore questions! :D

I usually keep pretty decent track of progress on stuff I fund, must have missed that xD. Thanks for the quick response!

I'm curious what your plan is for Early Access. By that I mean, what should we expect in regard to feature completeness, content, optimization, etc.

I much prefer the when games using that model are more or less complete and use Early Access as a model for bug hunting.

Yeah, that's generally what I'm aiming for. I think a few of the extra features from the KS may be missing (bonus dungeon, backer designer content, etc), but the main story content should be done.
