Hello everyone!
Here's an update about the consoles version!
IMPORTANT: For those that pledged 25$ or more and did not yet received their extra copy, make sure to fill the survey at the end of this email.

Wii U Version

I'm happy to announce that the Wii U version of The Girl and the Robot will be released on the Nintendo eShop (Americas) this Thursday! The European and Japanese version should follow soon after.

PS4 Version

The PS4 version should also be coming soon; a version has been sent to QA and we are now waiting for the result from Sony.

Sending Console Code - New Survey

The following information is ONLY for those that pledged 25$ or more AND did not yet receive their code (please check your pledge).
We realized that the last survey we sent did not include the console region in them, and also there were some backers that never received the survey because of their email spam filter. This is why we ask you to fill the following survey so that we can collect the proper information. We apologize for the inconvenience.

SURVEY LINK: https://goo.gl/forms/YPl85WcuGrulchaQ2
Note that you have until May 31 2017 to fill this survey, we will send your code soon after.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Quick update on Wii U & PS4 ports

17 likes

Hello everyone!
I'm sorry for the long silence, I wanted to give you a quick update on the progress of the Wii U and PS4 version.

Wii U
The Wii U port particularly took more time than I expected because of all the optimization we needed to make for it to run at a good frame rate. We submitted the game for lot-check recently and it came back; we just need to fix a few things before we can submit again. So the Wii U version will be ready soon, hopefully before summer.

PS4
We have the PS4 dev kit, but since I'm only one person doing the ports, I want to finish the Wii U port first before I can fully focus on the PS4. I expect the PS4 to have way less need for optimization, so hopefully I can finish this port way faster.

Switch
Some of you were asking if I would consider porting the game on the Switch (or replace the Wii U port for the Switch). Since we're almost finish with the Wii U (and we already paid for the dev kit), we must finish that first. If Nintendo is willing to give us access to the Switch and I can see that porting is relatively easy, we might consider it. But to be honest, I'm looking forward to start making a new game because I feel like I learned so much from this first project and new ideas is popping in my head. I would like to write a postmortem about The Girl and the Robot after all the ports are over, and if anyone is interested.

I hope this answer some of your questions and concerns; thank you again for your amazing support and have a wonderful day!
