Is the game dead?
It hasn't gotten any updates in a long time, what happened?

Pretty sure Dejobaan doesn't care about updating the game anymore, since we've already paid for it.

Is this the full version or is it still Alpha? I got it as a part of the Potato Sack Reunion but haven't really played it. The gameplay is bland and the music hardly matches up with the actions in-game. I'm dissapointed with this game.

Some time around December of last year, Dejobaan decided to scrap most of the work they had done on Ugly Baby and start over in a new engine (Unity).

The Unity version hasn't caught up to the (old) Steam version, so there haven't been any updates in a really long time. The bad news is, at Dejobaan's rate of progress, there probably aren't going to be any updates until at least 2013. The good news is, the switch to Unity looks to be an improvement, so when they do eventually catch up, new Ugly Baby will almost definitely be a big step forward.

If you're interested in keeping up with the development, or maybe just want to let Dejobaan taste your unquenchable rage, they're pretty active here:

and also post updates at irregular intervals on their site here:

Most importantly, though, Giant Robot Pornography! I was dissapointed in this game too, expecting it to be more of a music seeded AAAAaaaaAAaaAah!, but it feels very incomplete. Oh well, nice to know there's still some hope for it.

So what happens when they release the Unity Version? Do we who own this one get it as a replacement or something?

I'm hoping they release the unity version under the same name, then for the people who already own it, steam would covert it to a different format and we download the unity version to cover the missing content.

If they dont do that, i think we should get a free copy as they stated that is we buy this we get the full game when it comes out.

I loved Wonderful End of the World and Aaaaa was alright. They had some fun gameplay and were just pure joy and relaxing to play, whilst maintaining that little indie feel to it which I liked. I had a lot of hope for this game as a result and I'm left feeling a little unsatisfied with it.

I've been searching for answers on this for a while but sealbaby seems to have cracked it. Thanks a lot, I was gifted this game which is always good but no doubt it's incredibley linear and incomplete. I hope the investment comes fruitful sometime in the future

If you have any more questions I guess you can always ask Dejobaan on twitter

I think given the vast gap between how the game was sold on Steam, the state it currently is, and the vagueness over what it's going to be should entitle any purchasers to a refund, but given that Valve heavily promoted it several times as part of bundles, there's no chance of that ever happening.

I would be less annoyed with the delay if Dejobaan hadn't started _two_ other games during that time, but as it is I'm feeling ripped off. There's nothing on the Steam store page that says "Fund Dejobaan as they develop completely different games and flail around wildly trying to work out WTF to do with the one they've just sold you".

Really disappointed. As much as I would've loved to grab the Aaaa-remix and DRP, there's no way in hell I'm giving them money ever again.

Valve says that the vast difference between what the Steam store page is advertising and the current build is a "technical support issue". It seems it's only "misrepresentation" worthy of a refund when Forbes notice, as with The War Z.

Yes, I knew coming into this that the product wasn't finished, but this has been true of _so many_ games I've played & enjoyed, from Minecraft to Don't Starve. At no point did any of those games have their developers shrug, say "well, this isn't working", and then wander off to develop completely different games.

So I'm done. No more whining about an 18 month delay while Dejobaan works on titles it perceives as being more profitable, I'm just _done_. I won't be dropping a single dime on another Dejobaan product and I'll be warning everyone I know about their practices.

Wuweird, exactly the same conclusion I came up with almost two years ago. This game was just a scam, glad I didn't pay full price for it. Haven't even looked at one of their games since.

Wandered back here today to see (unsurprisingly) there has been no development.

Thanks, Shijou, nice to see someone else interprets it the same way. Constantly being told to be "patient" by pretty much _everyone_ while Dejobaan go on to work on other titles they feel will be more successful has been the most frustrating part of this.

Well, that and Valve's refusal to refund because it's been "too long" (as if the 18 month delay was something I'm responsible for) and their "system won't allow it". Because hey, it's okay for them to profit from this behaviour, to use the game as promotional material for their service, and then to wash their hands of any complicity in the matter.

Poor form, Valve.
How does it make you Phil? Mar 3, 2013 @ 11:27am 
Let's blame Valve, guys.

I'm being so serious right now.

I thought this game was extremely lackluster and not updated by Dejobaan any longer, so I was quite suprised when I saw it under the new Early Access. The last update was August 3, 2011 ...

That's odd -- we've done several updates just in the past few months (check out the other Steam forums at http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=1108 for more info). Here's the very latest one, from today:
