Status: In Limbo???
Post Updated January 2023
- So the game dropped back in the middle of 2018 to Steam, though you can find progress posts from the development team back in 2017 on Indie DB. Their Twitter and FB died off swiftly. The game itself came out to OK reviews- while folks were a bit thrown off into the deep end by the depth of crafting, folks were still intrigued.
- Significant updates were sporadic/drawn out from the start – numbering less than a handful- before the developers basically went entirely radio silent from May 2020 until December 2021, when they posted that they were releasing a tech demo of the game because they’d spent the past year and a half entirely redoing the game. More silence, and then a second iteration of the tech demo was announced in July of 2022. Another lapse in communication, and the tech demo was updated to version three on January 19th. At this point, I suppose it appeals to diehard fans? Maybe?
- Reactions to the reworked gameplay and mechanics have been…mixed, to say the least. The most charitable I could find was that folks are worried that it’s taking the game in an entirely unnecessary and less exciting direction. The developers have once again disappeared in terms of engagement or responsiveness – basically the day the secondary tech demo was dropped- so it’s hard to say whether the game is in some incubation or just going to limp along in a clunky state. Buyer beware?
