Hello all! As usual the kickstarter version of this update will be going up tomorrow morning.
This is just a very quick update to let you know what is going on. We have a much more exhaustive blog post planned for when we release the new (quite large) patch.
Please please take the time to check out the page! If you have some time invested in the Alpha or beta please leave a review! Leave comments, start discussions. The more activity on the page the better it bodes for our impending launch. We are starting to ramp up for release and we really need your help to spread the word!
If you do check out the steam store page you will probably notice that the release date is listed as ‘April 2017’. The exact release date will be announced very soon. This does mean we are going to miss our March release window. This is mainly due to factors outside of the game, such as graphic design for marketing materials, PR preparation, and related work that must be done before we can release which we just had not correctly budgeted our time for.
The next build of the game will include Ace Blade, our final piece of backer content!
However, by the end of this month (March, 2017) Ruin of the Reckless will be in very close to its final release state. Once we have the game in a very-near complete state, all of our backers that paid for access to the game will receive pre-release codes for Ruin of the Reckless. So if you backed us expecting to play the game in March that will still be the case!
There may be just a few small things missing from that build. Some minor visual polish effects, character endings *may* not be ready by that point (although they probably will be) and of course in the lead-up to release we will be looking at the feedback from our backers and making adjustments accordingly.
Besides all that, I know many of you are anticipating a big patch which adds Stella and makes many fixes and improvements based on our beta backer feedback, and that is on the way. However, we are waiting on just a few more art assets before we can push that build to steam and in the mean time I wanted you all to know what is going on from our end.
Well I don’t want to spoil too much about the new endings, but I think they are shaping up well. Thanks to Talikira for the beautiful art!
Thank you all for the love and support so far. There is no question about it, we will need your help in the coming months if we are going to make Ruin of the Reckless a success. I hope we can count on our backers and fans to stick with us and help us make this launch as spectacular as we know it can be.
As always, Thanks a ton!
