Pencil Testits claymation adventure game Armikrog once again, shifting its projected release date from September 8 to September 30. It's in the last four weeks.
As the team points out in a, however, better a few weeks waiting than a buggy final product. The extra time is needed to combat some particularly troublesome bugs that prevent progression.
"Over the past 7 days we've had some new technical issues pop up," explains Pencil Test. "Specifically some critical bugs called 'progression stoppers,' where users couldn’t get past certain points in the game. While these bugs continue to be fixable, they just aren't issues that we can ship with. Even this morning the Quality Assurance team kicked back a build due to an early critical bug. Yes, everyone is working through the Labor Day weekend, including our pals in Q.A."
The developer assures backers that the problem is fixable, and points out that "a short term delay in order to give you a great game is better than giving you a frustrating broken version tomorrow."
Kickstarted back in 2013 for just under $1 million, Armikrog is a stop-motion animated adventure game that stars a space explorer named Tommynaut and his blind talking alien dog, Beak Beak, who crash-land on an alien planet. It stars, Michael J Nelson and Rob Paulson.
