Development Update

Post by canuckgamer »

One of the threads indicated a projected release date of the first half of 2022. What is the status of the development of this game? Thank you.

The game is coming along really well. There is not much that we are ready to share at the moment, and certainly nothing in terms of a release date. First half of the year does seem a bit optimistic, but we shouldn't be too much later than that - depending on what happens once we're in beta of course.

Zero updates. Is this still in development? If yes are you at the beta level? After the debacle of Check Your Six I would love to see a decent game on WW2 air combat and the simultaneous resolution of a specific time period like they have in the Combat Mission series would be the icing on the cake as you could play it PBEM.
I am hoping this will be released some time this year but some updates would be great.

It's still very much in development, but we're at a stage where we are still prototyping systems, trying things, chucking things away... there's not much really to report at the moment. We'll break radio silence when we have something meaningful to say, but it'll be a few months.

We have big hopes and big plans for Scramble, which is why we're spending this time now making sure we're getting the game right.

We're a way away from beta at the moment, you can be assured we'll make plenty of noise once signups are open. News will be announced here, social media, email newsletter, all the usual places.

Hey,

Someone was asking this over at Steam recently as well, so please forgive the cut and paste from that post if you've already seen it:
manickennel on Steam wrote:... the game wasn't shaping up as we had hoped and we had to go back to the drawing board. Whilst we feel we've got the core gameplay playing pretty well now, we are working on a number of other things to make the overall experience better. Once we're happy with those too, then we'll be ready to tell the world. I doubt that we'll be ready to reveal anything publicly before late spring '23, and who knows, it may be later than that.

We have big hopes and big plans for Scramble, so we want to be sure that we get it right. That takes time. But imho, it's shaping up very well :)
