Release on your own time! There's no pressure and honestly screw people who would want to pressure you. Your life comes first!
Hey, guys, me again with some....iffy news.
First and foremost: I am aware that I have already pushed back the release date once already. But things just keep popping up.
First: As stated previously, my work is cutting hours and I have been looking for a second or new job. Currently I am applying for a warehouse position which would be a forty-hour work week, and likely leave me exhausted the first few weekends. I have tried to negotiate with my current place of employment, but they have refused to grant me full-time or increase my hours. And the simple fact is, I need to work for my money.
Second: Something is going wrong with my tablet, which I use for art. My pen randomly stops working, the cord sometimes moves and disconnects the whole thing. I do not know if the problem is with the cord or the tablet, but I need to wait until I have some more money to buy a new one.
Third: It's cold/flu season and it's been hitting my area hard. I myself couldn't stand to work for too long, as I woke up sick and sore and tired. I feel better now, having taken some medication, but it did cost me precious work time.
I do not have a Patreon that I receive money from. I do not get donations from followers or fans. I have a Ko-Fi but my actual revenue from that is very minimal, as is my RedBubble. I have to work a day job in order to make any money before I sell games.
I am creating this game all alone. I do not have assistants or volunteers, I do not have a team to help work with me. I am doing it on my own, and I am working every single day to create it.
I promise, I am not going to be that dev who promises big things and then vanishes without releasing the game. I am going to finish this game, and soon, but
I ask that you please be patient with me. I may not be able to release the game by my previous deadline due to all of the above happening. But again, I am working DAILY on this, alone, with no revenue from fans, and I ask your patience.
It pains me to say this, and it pains me to have to say "Sorry, I might be a few more weeks." I wish it didn't have to come to this. But it has.
Once again, I am sorry and I PROMISE this game will be made - I'm not disappearing or failing to deliver.
If you can please bear with me, then thank you very much for your patience, and once again I am sorry it has come to this.
