that's why I never pay for a game before it's even finished... it's already YEARS ago

Please release this game soon. The asylum looks so great, creepy, spooky whatever. please, please, please...

I honestly don't want to create false expectations, so most likely no. We are, however, getting real close to a beta. I'll post more news as soon as I can!

I'm a fan of "Stalker of Chernobyl" - it took the people involved in it's production well over 5 years to make and when it was released - it was released I believe under pressure from the public who were fed up with waiting as well as other problems with the programmers. The game was released and it had too many bugs in it, they needed another 6 months to a year in my opinion but even so the game I thought was brilliant. Exploring so many nucular damaged buildings, the city of Pripyat as well as the Chenobyl reactor itself. So don't release this until it truly is right otherwise it will receive poor reviews which will put all the hard work in the shade particularly as there are other quality games to play in the meantime. I have just purchased "Life Is Strange" and that according to reviews should keep me well happy for some while. Having said that it would be just nice to know if you think that "Asylum" will be out this year or not considering we're almost into July.

@Portugieser: It's true, we're not updating our website that often. It's dated and clunky, and the intention is to modernize it but right now we're focusing on completing the game as soon as possible. That said, we're often updating Facebook, Twitter, Kickstarter, and I come here every day to answer inquiries. As for Asylum itself, our backers are already testing it so it's 100% happening for real. I'm really, really sorry about the delay, but we're determined to make the game we want (and I'm sure YOU want to play as well).

Guys, you keep promising and promising since years. Big words here as well from Agustin ... but it is hard to believe anymore. The offical webapge news site has no entries since long. An advise: if you have no idea / funds, do not keep promising. You just ruin your credibility. And why the hell you start a new project? You should really focus finishing this and publish something to gain trust in your community...

Yup, it's massive. And remarkably detailed, which is why it's taking so darn long. But we're getting there! Although, keep in mind that Asylum will be more classic adventure than a fully explorative game -- certainly among the lines of Serena, but with more interaction, puzzles, and the addition of non-playable characters :)
The Grave Robber Jun 24 @ 4:27pm 
Thanks a lot for your reply Augustin, yes I'm enjoying Serena very much. I had my first taste of first person exploration games with "Gone Home" - a game that I rate immensely and I'm desperate to find other games like it. I came across "Homesick" enjoyed it but far too short for the money....... but now I've come across "Asylum" - a 100 rooms you say? Now I'm really waiting for this to be released - get to us fella, get it to us :)

@ŦĦĒ ĢŖÀVĒ ŖŌßßĒŖ, it's a rather curious thing: the name was inspired by Lovecraft's The Rats in the Wall, in which the "actual" Hanwell Asylum is mentioned. However, *our* Hanwell Mental Institute has nothing to do with the real place. It's supposed to be a minor reference to Lovecraft, but it's amusing how people have been confusing the asylum, to the point where we've got serious requests for admittance in our www.Hanwell.org homepage.

The Hanwell Institute in Asylum has been mostly inspired by the Taunton State Hospital in Massachusetts. Incidentally, the Institute is located in the fabled town of Kingsport, but we probably won't mention this fact in the game itself.

PS: Hope you're enjoying Serena :)

Is this game set in Hanwell Mental Asylum in West London? The game page looks very much like the early photos of the asylum at Hanwell.
