Agreed, take all the time you need to make this as awesome as possible! (The better to make people make more games like this *cough cough*)
Thank you Obscura! I really appreciate it.
Thanks for your understanding and patience, folks. You are the best backers ever.
@Wayne: I'll see what I can do in terms of getting a demo up but I make no promises! ;D
Although I am a little sad, I have been with this project for 11 months exactly and I am willing to wait 11 more. I thought this game was going to be amazing after I played the demo, before I even pledged, but with every new stretch goal we reached and update we have been given since, the possibility for awesomeness has increased. This postponement just means that it will be even more awesome.
Alright, so I'm going to have to make a plea on behalf of the thousands of us who aren't on your forum and have been waiting for a year. Please at least give us access to the beta. Something to keep us from rioting until the full game is released.
Yours truly devout vassal
Am disappointed with the postponement... But that's really how much I've been looking forward to playing your game!
Rooting for you to make the best game possible! Make it awesome so I happily show it off and get it the purchases and full exposure (did ur mind just GO there?) it well deserves!
Wow! I didn't follow all of the updates carefully enough - I didn't know you had Saguaro as a programmer! She made one of my favourite VNs ever (and I'm really waiting for the one she made during the last NaNoRenO).
As for the rewards: I think it happens a lot with successful Kickstarters that manage to get a lot of add-ons. I agree that it's better to make them as well as you can, rather than rush them for the sake of keeping to a deadline.
There are so many games that get rushed out before they're ready and then have to be patched up the hoohah for the next few months and it always seems to ruin a good thing, so I'm completely behind the delay. I mean so long as you don't go all Duke Nukem with it and delay it for 15 years. :-p
I mean yes, the sooner I get to have my wicked way with beardy Brad (and by wicked way I of course mean singing songs from the muscial of the same name >_>) the better the world will be, but this is more than just "a game", this could potentially open the door for a whole plethora of gay-themed games (or gaymes, I guess) to be released. So, you know, no pressure. :-)
As you already know, you have my full support Obscura & COoT team. You guys do whatever needs to be done to make the game as awesome as possible. I will be patiently waiting. :)
Kinda saw this coming as well. Oh, the suspense! Can't wait for the 2nd beta for us forum-goers!
I saw the postponing coming, but I'm OK with that because I want this game to be as great as it can get too :-) I just can't wait to play next beta build.
