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.
