Cathode Raybots POSTPONED.

2012-12-21 14:10:46 by TomFulp
Updated

It hurts to say this but it's also a bit of a relief because it's not too late to enjoy Christmas: JohnnyUtah and I have decided to postpone Cathode Raybots.

The plan had been to launch on Christmas Day and that worked as a carrot to get us 99% of the way this past month. As it stands we could probably release it on Christmas day but it wouldn't be as polished as we would like it to be. Taking some extra time will allow us to flesh out the campaign mode and menus (this game is interface hell).

ALSO it just so happens that PsychoGoldfish is working on the "NG Passport" bridge that will allow people on other websites to log in and save scores, earn medals or share content via our API. We decided things will align well and Raybots could launch with Passport integration, so people around the web can enjoy it - and hopefully sign up and check out NG.

Instead of wrapping up 2012 with a bang, we'll kick off 2013 off with a boom!

Expect some more feature updates before the year ends and hopefully there will be a turnout for the GiftJam on Christmas Day (I really should have promoted that more). This would have been a front page post but I didn't want to bump Jim's announcement of playlists!

I put together the available Castle Crashers Soundtrack, so you can relive the game in your head.

Honestly, what the fuck happened. If this were 1995 you would be on top of this shit Tom. Your game has been lacking as of late. Just ask your brother..

Barring something terrible happening, I've got a game to submit for the Gift Jam.

I put it up on compohub.net so hopefully it got some exposure there too.

I'm glad to see that you guys are making sure the game has quality, but can you at least put up a screenshot, or a song that will be in it to make up for the extra wait time?

I also like the new features, though!

I look forward to see what you guys have in store, happy 2013!

I always felt bad that I couldn't buy Castle Crashers back when it was launched on Xbox-Live. So I bought it 4 times on Steam!

Just take your time with the game, I'm sure it'll be worth it! The new features we got these past few days more than make up for it. Playlists and friends are a great Christmas present, thanks! :3

Wow really good news, the 2012 for newgrounds was a success, but I think that 2013 will be even better!

Hey man, people should be with family and friends or just taking it easy and quite on the Holidays.

There will always be time to enjoy 'presents' afterwards.

Go spend time with your wifu and lil' bastards.

The internetz will still be here and so will us Newgrounders too.

I still think a CC sequel would be kick-ass. Listening to this music.
