Post news RSS Hours to Go...Could Go Either Way

The demo fallback date was February 15th. There was so much more work than I expected left, and I hit some considerable snags along the way, as I mentioned in my last update. Will I make it? Find out!

Hey, everybody!

So today is the 14th and tomorrow is the demo's fallback date. While not wanting to sound like a broken record, there is a chance that the timeline will slip a SMALL amount - barring some kind of major catastrophe, it will not be 2 weeks like last time - we're talking maybe a few days.

The reason is that I'm actually almost done - I can't believe I just typed that - with the demo!!! It's entirely possible that I will be able to wrap this thing up in less than 24 hours and update it on the 15th (though, likely not at midnight PST - where I am - sorry, folks). Right now I'm going to hold that as the best case scenario because it's possible but fairly unlikely.

The next best scenario is literally any time after that up until the 19th. If I go beyond the 19th, it will be because something catastrophic has emerged and I need to deal with it before I dare release the game. Since that seems pretty unlikely. I just wanted to let you know that it's on its way. It may not make it exactly on the 15th, but it's so so close to being out! I haven't been sleeping much so tonight I'm making sure I go to bed early (for me - 4:24am) so that I can wake up refreshed and ready to tackle least last puzzle pieces.

The past couple days I've been doing major work on the opening of the game, the sound effects, the level designs, and everything is basically there but for a few finishing touches and some more testing. I'm confident that whatever I get into your hands before the 19th will be something I'm proud of and I hope that you enjoy it too.

No more posts until the game is out - unless it's to announce a major delay, which again, let's not even think about that - so I'm not posting screenshots. I don't expect this to make the front page. This update is just from me to you.

Take care everybody and I look forward to announcing the release ASAP!!!

Your friendly neighborhood Shadow64

Oh, what the hell. Here's a poor tortured soul who's been set on fire and can't put it out. Enjoy! Hahaha!

Fair point. Hahaha. I just wanted people to know that I'm on it and it won't be a long delay. :D I'll stop giving dates. ;)
