Chapter 2 release postponed

boadelayedWe have been waiting for this day since November 12th last years so the least thing I can tell is, that we are as disappointed as you might be now that we have to say: There will be no release of Blade of Agony's Chapter 2 this saturday. After discussing this internally for more than a week, we had to decide that we want Shadows of the Reich and the original chapter The Staff of Kings to be the best possible experience for players. But currently we are struggeling with issues our beta testers reported as well as problems with the performance on large maps and special effects with weaker or older computers.

Sure, we could have said "If it runs too slow, deactivate the effects or buy a new machine" but this is not our philosophy. We want to reach as many persons as possible, who are interested in this project and try to give everyone the same experience when playing (without reducing settings just to make it run with a few fps faster). We really hope you understand this and we already want to thank you for your patience during this delay, as we promise to prepare the best sequel that can possibly be made. Stay tuned - stay psyched!

You know what? Having been testing those levels, I'd have to say this is a good call: a couple of them were only in that playable "beta" stage within the past month, and there's just so much that could and should still be done to really make them shine. I'm confident that, with a little more time, this delay will really pay off. :)

Exactly. You only get one chance to make a first impression...a delay is better than a lot of frustrated players who may not come back to see revisions.
