It's me, Lyubo...WE ARE STILL IN THE STUPID CAVE....working on preparing for the Technical Submissions.
We keep thinking "next week we'll be ready!" but it's been like that for 2 months and stupid little stuff keeps popping up.
Some days it feels like every Fix, creates 3 new bugs...team moral keeps teetering between "casually suicidal" and "hysterical"......good times T___T
If any of you would like to keep track of Georgi's daily progress, he has just started posting on our facebook page (I assume as a form of therapy...so if you do check it out-please like it or comment something nice on it to keep his spirits up!)
>>>OUR FACEBOOK PAGE<<<
Sorry for not posting for yet another, what is it now...3 months... ....f***k....F***************K.....I am sorry.......................................
This is all my fault...I keep thinking "I'll do a lovely comics update to give you the good news once it's all done".......that day is not here yet...I keep getting bogged down in hundreds of little tasks that need to be done for us to be ready for submission...
As a "wonderful" example:
Testing this weekend reveal a brand new problem with our "DAMNIT_FINAL_NEW_NEW_WALLS TRANSPARENCY4" system that we were hoping would solve ALL the issues with the camera getting obstructed by walls...so we're working on a brand new "FOR_THE_LOVE_OF_ALL_THAT_IS_SWEET_AND_HOLY_PLEASE_WORK_DAMNIT_FINAL_NEW_NEW_WALLS TRANSPARENCY4" system...since it requires a bit of very fiddly work on every level in the game, we're gonna test it on one level in the next few days and if it DOES work in 4 more days we will have it implemented all around the game...
We are very excited about it and not at all going f*****g crazy over it.
To the point:
I'm writing this update because I want to apologize to all of you that feel like you've been wronged by us...we are truly sorry about the huge delay, and with all the other kickstarters that have been failing some of you in one way or another, I honestly can't blame you for wondering if we are one of them...But I swear to you, we ARE GOING TO DELIVER THIS GAME (even if it's the last thing we do)!!!
And it will not be done by cutting features.
It will not be done by compromising quality.
And It will not be done by half-ass-porting it to whatever console you've chosen.
We will do right by you......it's just...gonna take some more time...please forgive us...
Some of you may not know this, but we've been working on this project for almost 8 years...yeah...8 years...
And this is not a job for us.
We do not come to work at 9, "do the job" and leave at 6.
We have no concept of workdays and weekends.
We are here, doing our very f*****g best, to make a game that is "worth it" instead of just "done".
Do not get me wrong! We are WELL AWARE that we are not perfect(not even close)....and neither will the game be(no game is...no matter how awesome it is).
But whatever our shortcomings, we are not con-artists, and this is not a shameless money-grab or a scam.
We will finish what we started no matter what happens.
If you're still reading this...thank you for your attention and your patience.
We will not fail you!
