Keep the good work! the game looks awesome! I cannot wait for the release c:
Not to be rude, but I don't ever expect Kickstarters to finish when they expect to. A lot of the time they don't really know exactly how long it will take & just estimate, & even the experienced developers still have trouble meeting their deadlines.
Plus, I'd rather you keep working on it till you're satisfied with the project then trying to meet some arbitrary deadline. It's like that saying goes "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad"
No worries at all!
Take you time and deliver a product with the quality you want it to have.
Looking forward to it :)
Better a delayed good game than a rushed broken game
don't worry about it! This game's gonna rock, and I'd rather see it be the best it can be!
It's all OK! Take the time you need to make the game as good as you envisioned it and don't worry too much! I follow you on twitter and I've seen you working and working, so I really trust this is for the best and don't mind the little wait! Take care and go for it!!
Do you have a patreon? some people might want to help support you making games in general.
Don't sweat the release date too much. Delays happen, especially on Kickstarter. The biggest thing I'd say is I'd appreciate more communication about setbacks as they're happening, rather than a big negative post due to a bunch of setbacks I hadn't heard about before (maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention, and if that's the case, it's entirely on me). It's also easy to say that, but I do understand that when setbacks are happening, often the last thing a person thinks about is sharing them with the world. Still, it does soften the blow of an announcement like this.
Just keep communicating is the takeaway. We all gave you money to support both this project and YOU. We want both to succeed.
Best of luck moving forward.
No worries!! I'm still pretty excited to play the game. All the wait will be worth it when your masterpiece of a game is complete so don't be too hard on yourself~
Happy to wait, I trust you. <3 Good luck, and try not to be too hard on yourself. You're making something that looks SO good!!!
I’m excited to play it still! (Also I’ll be done with my degree by then, really you’re saving me from another mode of procrastination!) take your time and make sure you’re happy with the game, rather than pushing its release and having it be less than you wanted or buggy!! Total support from me :)
Take all the time you need! I don’t mind the SWITCH of release date 😉 keep up the great work
Take all the time you need to make this amazing game a reality. And make sure to take care of yourself too!
Delays are never fun, but I'm with everyone else - I'd much rather have a fun, finished game next year than a rushed incomplete game now.
The *only* thing that makes me nervous here is the bit about post-release updates. The way it's written sounds like some things may be missing at release, and then added back later as DLC.
Again, I would much rather wait and have the full experience as you intended it. Best wishes to the whole team!
Dude. This game is probably already amazing and is only going to become more so as you invest extra time into it. No problem whatsoever. I wanna play a game that’s good, not just a game that’s immediately available.
Keep up the solid work! I will wait as long as it takes to play this thang!
We believe that no matter how long it takes for you to finish Ikenfell, it will be one of the best games ever made. You're hard work and dedication is so inspiring, and what we've seen so far has captured our hearts and our imagination!

I read the tagline for this all wrong and thought the U.S. President had seized the game and it was delayed. That's why not glancing at email subjects is important.
No worries, take your time.
Take your time making your perfect game. We can wait for as long as it takes.
Good luck and health, Chevy!
As a fan I'm super not concerned about this, still looking forward to what still looks like a super lovely game!
re "This delay puts me in a bad spot financially" -- really hope you're ok!
Shit happens. I'll be looking forward to the news in the next months to see what you'll be disclosing for the game.
It's okay, we'll wait for as long as needed, as long as the result is there in the end!
No worries! You know what they say about rushed games after all!
You shouldn't feel bad dude. Estimates are bullshit anyway. There's no way to predict what the future will bring. You're twitter updates show you're not just screwing around and are working hard at this. I'm confident the final product will be great.
Besides, have you SEEN all the games that are clogging up the tail end of 2018? I think this might end up being a good thing in the long run as it wont get drowned by every major AAA and its brother.
Pssh I don't give a damn it's not out. I had no idea this was behind schedule. I wasn't keeping track of the news. I'd rather it be good than having it right now.
At least you keep contact with your followers... and that's a huge plus in my book. Take your time, your game is gonna be awesome!
If the financial situation calls for it, I would not discourage you from doing some sort of early access program. (I may even encourage it as I would like to see more of the game)
I honestly didn't realize it had been that long. Keep it up. Wishing the project the best!
Keep on working hard. Sorry to hear the delay will put you in a rough spot financially. Definitely been there. Good luck powering through, though. It'll be worth it.
I agree with Thomas Marnell. You're not just taking our money and doing nothing with it. You're working hard, learning new skills, and pushing yourself as a content creator. I'm good with supporting that! Keep working hard and I'll be happy to play your game when it's good and ready!
Bad stuff happens sometimes. If you just concentrate on making the game as awesome as possible I'm sure good things will follow.
Really looking forward to playing the game when it's done. Don't worry about the delay, the important thing is the final product.
I have been following the progress for the last two years on Twitter, and I feel confident that you have been actively working on this project the entire time. That makes me feel much better about this game.
Delays happen, and I would rather a good game delayed than a bad game delivered on time. Many games that get delayed never finish (a couple I have backed on KS), but it is clear to anyone following your progress that you have been moving towards a finished game.
I love what you are doing, keep it up!
No worries brotha. Keep up the hard work and it will pay off :D
Remember the great Shigeru Miyamoto quote, "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad."
We love you Chevy. I'm excited to play it whenever it's ready <3
