Showing up to reassure you that we're not dead is the least I can do! But, we're also preparing amazingly cool stuff to show you, if anything to make the wait a bit less painful :D

In all seriousness, Asylum is our dream project and we're making sure it's a game you'll cherish for years to come. Thank you for being so patient!

No, no. That's no probs. I understand it's hard to put a time on these things. That's why to kinda measure it I asked if it's close to being finished or not yet. But so long as we are aware, then that's fine. I'm just happy you's regularly nip in here to have a chat, and reassure us you's are still working away and aren't deceased lol.
Good luck with the work. And we all look forward to playing your game. :)

@crazycupmuffin, not this year, unfortunately, but most likely less than a year away. We have big news coming :)

How close are you's? I mean are we talking this year? Or at least a year away?

@Candyman, yes, we certainly are. We don't update this Steam page often -- sorry about that -- but you can follow us on Facebook or Twitter for all the latest news. Check out our FB page for plenty of new videos and screens since then:

"No jump scares, complex, multilayered story, and a truly terrifying experience."

It warms my heart ! keep going, I'm 100% confident.

AgustinCordes, I understood you. I'm from Russia :) longtime fan of your creation, I wish you every success, be sure to wait for the game. Thank Agustin. :)
AgustinCordes  [author] Aug 22 @ 10:28am 
@Skarktrol, we're still developing the game. Sorry it's taking so darn long, we're pushing our resources (and our sanity) to their limits with this project, but we're confident, as always, that the wait will be worth it. Sorry as well for the radio silence -- we're still working on the sizable update I mentioned earlier that will feature a new gameplay video, full status report, and discussion of a tentative release date.

So yes, Asylum is very much going; we're working super hard to deliver the memorable game we promised, and double-extra-yes, it's 100% Lovecraftian through and through. No jump scares, complex, multilayered story, and a truly terrifying experience. More as soon as possible!

AgustinCordes: The latest such issue, the game is still developing? or you wait for a certain day, for release? I just do not understand.
