Bad news today for fans of the clay variety, as Versus Evil and Pencil Test have announced that Armikrog has been delayed to September 8. A spiritual successor to both Eathworm Jim and famed point-and-click adventure, The Neverhood, Armikrog was originally due to be released on August 18.
The delay is said to stem from bug fixes and tuning.
Read our preview of the game here and the full statement sent out to Kickstarter backers below:
As we’re approaching the finish line, we’ve come across some details in the game that we really want to address. Some of the issues are about tuning, while others are straight-up bugs fixes. Since we owe it to every one of you to give you the best possible game we can make, we’ve decided to push back the game’s release date to September 8th.
We’ve enjoyed and appreciated your overwhelming support throughout this whole production, and we want you to be proud of the game that you’ve backed. Mike and I both feel like releasing the game without addressing the last of these issues would be falling short of that.
Thanks everyone — the adventure begins September 8th!”
