I’ve noticed some folks talking this game up lately as if were dropping soon- which is a bit puzzling from the info I’m seeing. I’m going to forgo the normal deep dive that I typically do with an upcoming title. Instead, I’ll lay out some stuff down below and I’ll go ahead and update this if/when things change. I’ll park this under Upcoming so that folks can see it and understand the status- or lack thereof?
I’m a big fan of lists, so let’s list it up!
- The Discord link you can follow from their official Steam page leads to a tiny Discord server that’s basically mostly filled with bot spam in multiple channels. Shit like “THREE MONTHS FREE DISCORD!!111” and stuff like that.
- The Twitter link you can follow from their official Steam page basically has tweeted nothing about the game since the time of the failed IndieGoGo campaign back in August/September of 2020. While it did post some Project D related shit back in October of 2020, it also spent far more time basically retweeting random bullshit, memes, and spam.
- Where did the 2024 planned release date come from given that funding was never achieved? Given that the supposed alpha was “close”. They did post to the Steam forums back in Oct 2020 (post IndieGoGo campaign) that due to “device problems and related to corona” they were postponing announcement of any release date to 2021. Given that that didn’t happen, I’m going to assume this is dead in the water. There’s a website supposedly linked to the Steam page, but all sorts of blocker addons I have on my browser REALLY didn’t want me to open it- so I didn’t.
- When you start throwing the title of the game into search engines you end up with hits on the failed IndieGoGo campaign, which was hoping to raise 80k (??) and raised $379 dollars.While failed campaigns are typical in the indie game development niche, there is a strange disconnect between the amount of money they were wanting with the quality/quantity of the game info provided. Ever play WoW and come across those guilds in Trade Chat that DO EVERYTHING?! This was kinda like that; CRAFT AND BUILD AND BOSSES AND PETS AND HORSES AND CARS AND MULTIPLAYER AND SINGLEPLAYER AND FARMING AND CUSTOMIZABLE CHARACTERS AND AND. There didn’t seem to be any concrete path- no roadmap, no “this is the breakdown of the money or how we need it/would like to apply it”.
