I received a letter yesterday from Bryan Wiegele, Indie developer and creator of the Delaware St. John series. Many of us have played the first three games in the series and have enjoyed them very much. Bryan is also the designer of the original Inherent Evil adventure game.

Unfortunately, Bryan is putting the Delaware St. John games and the upcoming Inherent Evil 2: Dark Whispers on hold for the foreseeable future.



Quote:
It’s been a long three and a half years but the fact is working on these games part time and with no budgets, they never got the love they deserved. So rather than continue, I’m going to put them on the shelf and hope in the future I get the opportunity to pick them up and give them the full attention they need to shine.

I appreciate you and all of GameBoomers for being so supportive of the games and I hope one day I get the opportunity to do both of the series’ sequels justice.



I hope Bryan knows that we appreciate how he provided us with hours of entertainment, challenge, and intriguing moments of terror. We wish him all the best, and hope that the future will mean a return to adventure game development sooner than he currently expects.

sad It is always heartbreaking to hear of production stopping on an anticipated game but especially disheartening when it is one of our own.

Bryan, I hope that you will be able to follow your dreams and make a living at it.

Bryan, you have tremendous talent and I hope it is not a long time before we see more of your work. You've always been so responsive to your fans, and such a nice guy that it is especially hard to hear this news. Thanks for all the work you have done in bringing us lots of happy hours playing. You'll be missed.

That's a great shame. I loved Inherent Evil, and particularly the Delaware games, and was looking forward to the 4th instalment of DSJ. Best wishes for the future, Bryan, I hope things work out the way you would like them to.

Good on you for trying Bryan! For doing it part-time you achieved quite a bit.

I hope other indie developers will benefit from your experience.

That's the thing I don't like about game series, they're never finished. Just recently got the third game too.

Shucks! I'd just gotten into the DSJ games, too. I still have to play the third one after I finish Lost Crown so I at least have that to look forward to.

Bryan - sending positive energy to help create the opportunities you need to continue these projects that are obviously dear to you.

Bryan,
I have bought all your series and was looking forward to the newest one. Sometimes someone has to quit what they love doing to see how much they miss working on it. I Hope this is the case and before the end of this year, we will hear work as continued on the newest game.

I am completely bummed out! The Delaware games were fantastic and I was hoping another one would be out soon! My heart would race whenever I was in a chase scene and had to get to safety - I will miss that excitement! cry
