Hi all

I use to frequent this forum and JA back in the 90's, posted once in awhile and really enjoyed both. It was pretty much adventure game heaven back then. Miss those times

The reason for my posting, as you can tell by the topic, is where and the heck is this game. What's it been.....15 years in development??? Nothing takes that long. There always seems to be one excuse or another, now Covid. Are we ever gonna see this game??? Something tells me no...not in my lifetime anyhow. I'm 64 now so there is still time I hope. I was really looking forward to playing what I had hoped to be a "Masterpiece".

Somehow I missed out on the temporary Demo. Don't know why is was a temporary thing. Would of at least liked to have play some part of Asylum. My loss

There use to be a Asylum website but it seems to be gone. Maybe I'm doing something wrong..... All I can find is this a Discord site. Can anyone send me in the right direction

https://discord.com/channels/368191694384136193/410782748064743424

Latest on Steam

All in all I can't imagine what all goes into the development of a game but I know its complicated but come on Senscape lets get Asylum out already. In another 15 years I will be 80


It is never too late!

Hi, Orion and welcome back! I backed Asylum on Kickstarter so many years ago, I've forgotten! The game has been beset with problems for a long time, but is still slogging towards release - some day. I get updates now and then. There are even a couple of gameplay videos out.

Hi Orion...you didn't miss much. The demo was pretty disappointing. No sound with the characters.

Demo was awful, but the gameplay videos are intriguing.

I pledged on January 29, 2013 and KS ended on February 28, 2013 with a game completion date of 2013. lol
I wouldn't care so much if I'd like anything I've seen so far. I don't think I'm actually going to play it when I do get it.

Ana, do you think your taste in gaming is changing or is the game just not shaping up to what you thought it would be? (I guess those could go together.)
Just wondering.

No, not at all, oldbroad, but good question! I do not care for the graphics at all and the gameplay is clumsy. Every time they re-do it to a different engine or some upgrade, I find it looking worse. It looks and feels like a twenty year old game to me. I'm really quite disappointed.

Hm. That is a shame. One of the downfalls of taking such a long time to make a game maybe.

I don't understand why progress announcements are now so restricted as to where they get published - even when there ARE any woozy

If a KS backer email says not to be shared, I won't post the news, but I too think it's ridiculous.

I first heard about Asylum sometime in 2010. I was planning my game Amber's Blood at the time, which largely takes place in an abandoned asylum. I remember being slightly worried that Asylum would be released before my game, and that some players might find the framing of the games too similar. Let's just say that my concern was uncalled-for. Now the project seems to be more abandoned than its locale.

Agustín Cordes is a very talented and driven game designer. I wonder how this project can have capsized so completely.

Too funny, Mikael! We announced the game here on July 09, 2010 Mikael. It sure has been awhile!

Well.....I tell you what. Don't hold your breath on this one for too long, as if one has lately. Seems they bit off more then they can chew. They reached their goal of $100,000 reaching $119,000 according to the Asylum Kickstarter. I can only guess that this amount is nowhere near what was needed to finish this project. Having to dig into your own pockets and working with a limited amount of personal is never a good thing....when working on other games as well?

Remember that Sci-Fi game Prominence. It took 12 years to develop. I really enjoyed playing it once it released so I guess there is a chance Asylum will release one of these years. I'm just glad this is one I did not back.

Here the link to Asylum's Kickstarter. Check out the FAQ posted back in 2013 regarding taking so long. Its been what...8+ years

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/agustincordes/asylum-kickstart-the-horror/description

As far as the Demo last summer.....What the heck....Guess I did not miss anything. You would think that Demo would have been "SPOT ON". It should have been a selling point. Now I did not run it, just have been reading comments about it and they have not been great

It sure would be nice to get some detailed, and I mean DETAILED, info on the games progress from Scenscape. Where the heck are we on this. Oh well....just a thought.....

I hope someday, probably some year, they finally release Asylum. The videos look great and makes one anxious to play. Gonna put this one on the backburner...... again

When I get my next email from Agustin, I will let you know what he says! They also pretty much started over with the game engine at one point in time.

Ok Draclvr.

That would be nice. Its something I guess. You should get them to spill the beans here. Give us some details. I would say it might put some backers minds at ease but I guess they get some kind of updates as backers I don't know. I would be curious to see if these updates are satisfying or leaving one with questions/doubt. Guess that would be up to ones own mind

Thank you

The last PR notice not a backer exclusive was announced here.

Here was our official First Look of the Demo by flotsam.

Since I do the official PR and admin here, it wouldn't be appropriate for me to post anything asked to not post.

Thanks for the links Ana,

I'm sure when Asylum releases, whatever year that might be, it will be worth getting/playing. Little surprised to see only 15 hrs gameplay. Then again how many hours can you spend in a haunted insane asylum before loosing your mind

Well, I can't spill the beans with anything Agustin directs backers not to, but anything that is in the public domain I will!

Hello again,

Just wondering if anyone has any updates on Asylum. SOMETHING you can share.

I wonder why backers are not allowed to share info given to them about Asylum. Whats the big deal / secrets here. Are they talking release dates / progress. Probably just keeping those who backed, I dont know....If I had to guess...keeping all of those who backed hanging.

I tried to get a response from a email I sent and got nothing. I wonder what happens, for those who backed, If the game never comes to a release. Id be a little upset. I guess that would depend on how much I trusted to them

You got anything to say Senscape?????..............Where are you?..........HELLLOOOO !

I will eat my words and apologize, if I am still alive, if Asylum releases some year. Oh well..........You all take care

I have not received any press releases from them. They keep hiring additional people and that pretty much sums up the announcements.

Yes, what Ana said. It's been months since the last update for backers. I don't even pay any attention to them any more. Mostly hiring more people and how great it looks... blah, blah, blah.

I so want to play this but it seems like a scam at this point. it's been like 10 years and the recent demo didn't show anything special to justify the length it's taking to be released/completed. Even if employees come and go, it's just pathetic.

Check out their updated Kickstarter page. People are bent some asking for their money back. Team responses

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/agustincordes/asylum-kickstart-the-horror/comments

Take a look at the Campaign amounts and their offers on completion in 2013/14. I'd say they are in a world of hurt trying to finish Asylum. Bit off more then they can chew. I hope they can work it out. Backers can look at udates by logging in. Last May 21
