Thanks for the update, Ana.
Amen Tracy, Amen. I too respect the time requirements for a developer to produce a product. When you add the fact that much of what game makers do is art as well as science, I'm even more impressed. If they miss the release date by a week or so, I fully understand. However, If they miss the release date by several months, then they were either irresponsible or they simply lied. Whichever it is, the consumer deserves a bit of respest too. When asked about the release date for a game, "I don't know" is a perfectly reasonable answer. Simply try to avoid leading gamers down the prirose path to nothing.
FWIW, I believe when Matt (developer) gave a status on this a couple of years ago, the game was pretty much in the can and waiting for a distribution agreement somewhere in Europe (maybe Germany?) Something to do with translating the game into a different language, IIRC, but I could be remembering it wrong. In any event, I am pretty sure that the game was all but done at that time and just waiting for some legal or contractual wranglings. Maybe he had some issues with what was being demanded or offered. We don't know. Then again, maybe he decided to completely revamp the game technically. There again, we aren't privy to that info. We all wish we could be playing it, but if it isn't possible, it isn't possible. Matt may not even be in a position to be able to shed any light on the situation himself.
