February Update Part TWO!
Drifters! This will be a shorter post, with some important information about Surveys that requires your eyeballs for reading.
We have a (nearly) final cover, which is currently being used as banner art on the GOG pre-order page:
We'll be sending out the remaining surveys this month, so please be on the look out. This means you get to select your platform(s) and provide us relevant info on your tier and rewards.
Please read the instructions carefully, as there are a fair amount of questions due to the complexity of the KS survey system and the variety of rewards we offered during the campaign. There are some questions about add-ons: these concern only the money you pledged DURING the campaign. We cannot offer add-ons after the campaign, as we explained last year in an Update.
The Wii U port is, unfortunately, currently in limbo.
So what happened? We had information about our engine, two years back, when we announced support for the platform. This had assured us we could port to the Wii U with relatively little hassle by now. However, due to ongoing internal contractual issues beyond our control between the platform holder and engine developer, we just don't know when or if this situation will have a good resolution. We are looking into the options available and doing what we can to help push the issue, including posting about it here.
This means we will still offer the option of Wii U in the Surveys, with the stipulation that if you do choose it as your platform, and we end up unable to support it this year, we will offer you a key on another platform of your choice. We would rather keep this option open, knowing there's still a possibility for it to work, than cancel the port right now.
I realize this isn't ideal, and plenty of people are looking forward to the release on a Nintendo platform (as are we, being life-long fans). Please understand business can sometimes get in the way of production, and there's only so much we can do to help sway these types of events with larger entities. We'll keep everyone updated as soon as we know more.
Development continues to be very intense, so updates will remain a bit spartan. Looking forward to next month with details on release date! Until then, have a wonderful remaining February.
