Somebody is definitely going to ask, so I'll go ahead and do it before someone else does it in a rude way, but what happened? Why the radio silence for so long? A lot of people were looking forward to this game, we even had somebody on here keeping track every single week and trying to contact you. You could've let us know at least if you were disappearing to work on the game, but instead it just felt like the game had been abandoned with zero notice.

Judging by Kimmo's brief post to let us know about the Pre-Launch demo, I don't think they plan on addressing or acknowledging their absence until the game is officially released. I'm just happy that the game isn't dead and even more happy that it's nearly finished.

Ditto. I couldn't believe it to see an update pop for it, and even then ONLY expecting some sort of zero byte unrelated news post or something...

Imagine my surprise to see nothing of the sort...

Well this is *fantastic* news! I had given the game up for just another failed early access title. Thank God that doesn't appear to be the case, after all. I would like to know WTF happened, though!

Yep. An explanation would go a long way toward convincing the numerous owners to change their reviews from neg back to pos again, which will be needed to ensure game sales. With that dark orange and yellow most people are going to click right past it in their discovery queue. Will check it out.

Yes, we should have had half a dozen "still working on it". I would have been happy with that minimal information. I would not have expected an apology or anything like that. They gave us an 80 hour gameplay beta and then worked solidly for the past 14 months for this wonderful update. Is it that difference than getting a 58 min gameplay video from CDPR for Cyberpunk 2077, and then being happy that we know CDPR will be silent until very close to release, which could be 18 months away? This is a fantastic game, and I hope the negative reviews can be deleted by their posters!

О господи, хотите сказать что 4 года ожидания не зря? Отлично!

Woohoo! Nice work people! This game was too good to just let it drop. I'm having fun with it.

FYI: Radio silence happens. They worked hard and didn't come across a build to show it off. At least they stuck with it.

Yeah now what? wait another few years for that last 1%? Call me skeptical.
Awesome work guys as always!
Looks nice, but I wonder what happened to the rest of the game? Before I had a lot more open, I went to play and it tells me that I was at the limits of the demo? Color me silly and is cool to see the demo but when does it switch back to where we can play the actual game and not the demo?
So did I miss where they said the release date of the full game? Because we've paid for early access, not a demo.

Congratulations on persevering! RPGs of any sort can be a real undertaking. I'll try to find some time soon to play the demo and write up some feedback!

Radio silence shouldn't happen. Some people (not me) paid money for a product, they are entitled to information regarding such product (good or bad). This is also really not professional and they shot themselves in the foot by getting legitimate bad reviews as people thought it was abandoned, which is going to hurt the sales when people see the "mixed" review rating. I'm being harsh, but it's the truth. They probably had a reason and it's fine, it's their business after all.

EDIT: I of course hope it all goes alright for them, in case some people think I'm just a ♥♥♥♥.
