Some good news and the launch date!

Hello dear friends, 

This is Martin from Blue Brain Games. I know I’m not much of an actor, but I’ve decided to talk to you directly in this video message.

To sum it all up, I have two pieces of news for you – one very good one, and one that’s not so good. The good news is: the game is 100% READY! We have prepared six AMAZING levels, everything is tested & ready for the release. Actually, my son loves it so much that I haven’t seen my iPad for three days now.

But now for the not-so-good news. I have to tell you all that you will have to wait a few more days to enjoy it. The House of Da Vinci for iOS will be released worldwide on…(wait for it) June 22! Not sooner, not later: exactly on this date, you will finally be playing The House of Da Vinci. So that doesn’t sound too bad, does it?

I can’t express how sorry I am for this. I hate delays just as much as you do, but if you’re still watching this message, let me explain the two main reasons for the delay:

1) As you may remember, we promised the sixth level as a stretch goal on Kickstarter & it was originally supposed to come as an update after the initial release. Well, this has changed, because the last level naturally became an integral part of the story. We couldn’t release the game without it, so we’ve decided to skip some sleep and finish it at all costs. We made it!

2) Based on your extensive feedback, we’ve decided to release the game with six more language localizations. Good news for anyone speaking English, French, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Spanish, Slovak and Czech. More to come in a couple of months after release.

I certainly hope you can understand this & I’d like to thank you all for your patience and support. Now I have to go – as you can see, I have some sleep to catch up on :-)

Don’t forget to save the date >> June 22. <<

Best,

Martin and the Team

      When will codes or whatever go out to backers (so they can presumably get the game for free when released)?

      As with many of the other comments I am waiting for the Android version but don't mind waiting if it means getting it right.

      It was promised for October last year but still you won't commit to a release date for the Android version.

      Not good enough!

      Hi guys,

      thank you for all your comments!

      To everyone asking about the release date for other platforms – we'll start the necessary game optimisations in order to deliver all other platforms asap. We won't promise you a specific release date now, because we are currently regrouping our manpower and creating a new timeline. The good news is, that thanks to Unity 3D game engine, this should go quite smoothly. We'll keep you updated about our progress. If you have any question in the future, please note that you may send us a private (or public) message on our Facebook page as well (https://www.facebook.com/thehouseofdavinci). We'll be happy to reply (usually) within a few hours.

      Better to get it right in the first place than to miss a crucial step. Good on you all for your perseverance,

      I was and am excited about the Da Vinci game concept. Da Vinci made an indelible mark on the world we know. This has to have been an audacious undertaking. CONGRATULATIONS!
      Looking forward to the Android version.

      My old teacher said: Afterwards you can't see how long time it took, only how well it was done. So, keep up the quality!

      Please also publish release dates for other platforms. PC for me.

      Thank you for the update and release date. I am very excited to play the game and mark the date in my calendar :-)

    26. Justin Yem on May 27

      Can't wait for it. Super chuffed to get a release date. Personally I don't mind delays, cause I would much rather wait than get a buggy game that is not up to the devs standards cause they had to rush it.

      Thanks guys!
