Our latest news appeared to by highly commented by many of you. You have a lot of questions about our new publishing deal, so let us clarify most important facts:
- Agony will be released in boxes, globally, in most major markets
- Additional publisher DOES NOT have any rights giving him the ability to force even the smallest changes in Agony.
You can read more about it here for example: (Polish website)
Moving the release date was a difficult decision but we decided to do so because we know that it will have a positive impact on the project. Don't treat that change like a punishment for releasing Agony in boxes. Look at it from a different perspective. We have now the ability to expand the game, which will give you many more hours of gameplay now. Agony is not a game for 3, 5 or 10 hours. This is a long and unforgettable story, a world full of secrets, waiting for players to discover. We will give you boss fights, "Agony mode" with randomly generated levels, seven different endings in story mode, huge replayability and an additional playable character that you asked us about in hundreds of emails. We got a chance to refine Agony and we want to use it in 666%
Be patient, we are a small team with great ambition and determination. We want to give you the most refined product because we know that's what you expect.
We can also assure you that Madmind will never sign a contract that could harm our games. It is never easy to find investor who will not interfere with our vision, but we have never even considered other options. We want to create games for mature customers, according to our assumptions and a vision that we will always defend.
Also, take into account that we never gave a specific release date for Agony. We were aiming for the second quarter of 2017, but we had to change it because of the reasons we described above. We get hundreds of emails and comments asking about the release date, but for now, we can not answer them. For now, we can say that we aim to release it before the end of 2017. But you will have to wait for the official release date announcement, and it will only appear when we have 100% certainty. We do not want to give you a specific release date and later change it.
Anyways, Are you ready for E3? Because we are! :)
Have a great weekend!
