Thank you for the update. I also want to extend my compliments and Obsidian's decision to extend development. I am in agreement that it was the right choice. I'm happy to see that Obsidian understands the gravity of this product and have committed even further.

 

I'd also like to say that while I may be among those that disproportionately extend critical skepticism, that I do enjoy the game even in its current incarnation. Every update has been a significant improvement, and I have no reason to expect anything else from your company (that's why I backed). You guys are forging the keel of a gaming renaissance! Hats off to you!

Hey, everyone. We are still working on the next patch. There is a weird problem with the build right now where load times have gotten much worse. The programmers are on it and we are hoping to release the patch sometime this week.

"This week" is about to end. Hint, hint, it's time for another update, good, bad or indifferent. ;)

I think one update a week is probably fine. I mean, if they hoped to release it this week, but failed to, then obviously it's going to be not-this-week. And they're not going to spontaneously release it without an update. The lack of further update defaultly means "we're still working on it."

And I'd hate to see it come down to daily "Okay guys, we're hoping it's today!"/"Hmmm, all right, it's not going to be today, but we're hoping it's tomorrow!" pairs of updates. :)

The update should have been something along the lines of "we're still working through issues and won't meet our goal of releasing by the end of the week. We'll have more to share next week."

 

Sure, by not communicating anything at all, we figure it out. Silence is certainly a way to communicate, but it's not the kind that engenders good will from your fans.

 

But no big surprise. OE just isn't great at the whole communication thing. Happily, they're good at other things.

New update is now live. See we did make it in by the end of the week. ;)

Nah, it was after 6PM with no communication having been given whatsoever. Commenting was warranted.

 

I see my comments now as a reverse jinxing situation, so... you're welcome.

I admit some of the other thing was probably happening too.
