RELEASE DATE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

41 likes

That’s it folks!! The anxiously awaited moment is here! It’s time to reveal Children of Zodiarcs’ official release date! But first, I would like to write a paragraph or two about…  

JUST KIDDING!  

Here we go:  

We are thrilled to announce that July 18, 2017, Children of Zodiarcs will be coming out on PS4 & Steam (Windows)!  

This announcement has been a long time coming. We have wanted to say when the release would be for some time and it pained us to not be able to be more precise in the last weeks and months, but there were still too many questions left to answer, and too many unknowns keeping us from getting to these answers. We are super happy to finally be able to share this with you all, and we want to thank you again for having been patient and supportive through all this.  

We also want to give a thousand thanks to all the beta tier backers who spotted bugs and posted them on Steam. You're the real MVPs. We got rid of a lot of bugs and improved the balancing of the game thanks to your precious help and vigilant eyes!  

So NOW, you can mark the date and tell all your gamer friends and family! If you haven’t seen Children of Zodiarcs in action in a while, check out this updated version of our trailer featuring all new gameplay footage:

 If you are curious about the origin story of Children of Zodiarcs, you can also head over to Sony’s Playstation Blog, to read our article

I’m sure other questions and comments will come up until July 18th, so please bring them to the comments section, Facebook, Twitter, Steam & Twitch (more on that in a bit!). But right now, there's already an answer for two that have already been asked:  

  • Is the Mac version still coming out? Yes! As we have mentioned previously, the Mac version will be coming out a bit later. We will keep you informed as soon as the mac beta comes out, as we will need your help testing it! 
  • Is Canadian Spring later, or… ? As some of you have pointed out on Steam, like the rest of North America, we can only stretch the definition of “Spring” all the way to late June, so yes, the release date is a few weeks later than our “Spring 2017” estimation. This is mostly due to a slightly longer testing and debugging period than we anticipated, but we think it was absolutely worth it in the end, as Children of Zodiarcs is now so much more polished, and runs smoothly on so many machines. 

Streaming revival! 

Another exciting piece of news: Starting next week, we will start streaming again every other week! To celebrate the release date announcement, we will kick off the revival of our streaming rendez-vous with a showcase of the beta on Thursday, May 25, at 6:30pm EDT. Save the date and bring your questions! If there are questions you already know you want us to answer in the stream, you can already post them here in the comments section of Kickstarter, and start them with “#StreamQ”, that way it will be easy for us to grab all of them beforehand!

Also, stay tuned for our future streams as well, as we will be playing other games, stream with other devs from the team (and maybe even from other teams!). We will be announcing our upcoming streams on Twitter, Facebook & in the comments section right here on Kickstarter. On that topic, we are considering gathering a few indie devs on our office couch to watch E3 press conferences live and comment on them. We are curious to know if some of you may be interested in that type of content. Let us know, and let us know as well if you have any ideas or requests about other types of content you would like to watch! 

Peace out, y'all!

      Yo yo. You chose the PS4 digital. The physical version was a different pledge tier.

      I'm just curious since i chose Ps4 will it be a physical copy or digital download?

      Usually prefer digital download, please advise thanks and look forward to playing this game!

      Can I change the platform I am getting the game for? I think I originally went with Mac, but I just got a PS4.

      @Diego
      MVP etc etc :)

      @Daemon
      Here're the current deets on physical versions in store: Currently, there's no plans for that. But, depending on who we go with for the physical versions, there may be a few thousand available for people to buy online through the manufacturer.

      @RPGenius
      Yup! A DRM-free version. According to your survey, you're already getting that :)

    6. Diego Gabrielli on May 17, 2017

      @The RPGenius There is a DRM-Free version, if I remember correctly, you could choose it in the survey. If you haven't done it, I'd suggest you search the backerkit e-mail, or send an e-mail to Info (At) Cardboard-utopia.com to get the link, or change your game delivery method.

      @Daemon Seraphim I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure there's only going to be a digital purchase, since the physical copies of the game were a backer reward, and not a mass production item.

      I know I am already getting the game, but will this game be available for purchase at my local gaming retailers like GameStop? Will pre-orders be available?

    8. The RPGenius on May 16, 2017

      Will there be a DRM-free option for PC users instead of Steam?

    9. Cardboard Utopia Creator on May 16, 2017

      Hey hey, y'all! Ok, let's get to replying!!

      @Jax
      This was totally planned. Your family and ours go waaaay back. It's part of a tradition. But next year, it's your family's turn to release a game on MY birthday. Get crackin!!

      @Nintendo Switch
      You can see the info regarding a Switch version here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1314680699/children-of-zodiarcs-a-new-tactical-jrpg-by-aaa-ve/posts/1821384…

      @Linux & PSVita
      For now, all our energy is focused on the promised platforms: Windows, PS4, and then Mac. Linux and PSVita all depends on how things go after the game ships

    10. Alejandro Checa Grande on May 16, 2017

      As Eddy has said the Switch might be a nice option too!!

    11. Alejandro Checa Grande on May 16, 2017

      Are there still no plans at all for Linux?

    12. J.R. Riedel on May 16, 2017

      Exciting news!

    13. Eddy on May 16, 2017

      WOOOHOOOOO!!!!! btw any chance this game might hit the switch or PS Vita? would love to have it on the go.
