The game must be really big if even after TWO WEEKS delay it still can't release in time.

 

That's the word on the street... and by that I mean Ragnar's posts on this forum and social media.

I just don't understand why after TWO WEEKS! (Ragnar) delay Book Two still can't release in time...

 

I think Ragnar outlined pretty well in his posts what the deal is. *shrug* 

 

Does it still suck? Yes. But unexpected bugs and issues happen. And again: I'd rather deal with a little disappointment now and get a more stable game in two days than have a bunch of people trying to play the game tonight and posting all angry because they ran into some crazy showstopping glitch. 

 

"Help! I am suck a X place! What do I do next?" posts are much more fun to answer than "Help! Game crashes constantly. Encountered glitch, unable to continue" posts.

The problem is that it must be tested with Book One and some changes in Book Two's code can bad affect Book One. Pretty stressfull situation.

Ragnar, thanks for the feedback. Remember that criticism is only there because this game means so much to many of us - it's inevitable, and should make you feel flattered. Take your time with this, we're completely behind you guys. <3

Pawlo, it is reported to be that big indeed. But I think another crucial problem is that effectively the "testing" team is only the programming/art team themselves. Most other games made by small or very small teams nowadays usually benefit from significant community testing (beta/early access situations), but they are mostly strategy games, RPGs, platformers, etc. where that is possible, while the narrative nature of DF:C kind of prevents RTG from following such an "open testing" approach.

I'm ok with the delay, I somehow expected it. I only hope RTG is not suffering from a "Tolkien syndrome" where every storyline creates problems with continuity, making the writing of the story (and programming, in this case) harder with every storyline/consequence-of-choises that gets added. If that is the case we can expect HUGE delays comes book 5 ;)

But again, I don't mind, didnt have time to play untill the weekend anyway.

I don't mind the delay, it's only 48 hours. Even if the game got released today I wouldn't have time to play it before (earliest) Thursday evening (so much for work commitments)

Actually Thursday and Friday are the days that I will have time to fully play DFC :)

So for me it will arrive right on time :D

GOOD. As it should be.

True story: I edited my post to fix something else, but missed that. Meh.

Good luck fixing those nasty bugs. I am confident people understand that releasing a high quality game is preferred over releasing a buggy game just to meet a release date :)

Tsk, tsk, Erika. I'm disappointed in you. That should be "suck an X place", not "suck a X". ;)

Yeah, let's make sure all our typos are grammatically correct. It's important, guys.
