Thanks from the other side

I’d like to thank everyone who has so far provided feedback, comments and praise over the Zafehouse 2 gameplay video. Honestly, I was very reluctant to post it as it’s, well, incomplete. But I also realised that, if I didn’t put anything out until the game was almost ready, expectations would be super-high, and I don’t think they would have matched the scope of the game.

With the video out, everyone has a more grounded view of what will be in the game and its presentation.

There’s so much I’d like to do, but the video has really made the issue of feature creep hit home. It sneaks up on you so easily. You get into a pattern of putting a feature in, adding a new one to the list… but not making any actual progress. I think everyone would prefer if Zafehouse 2 was a complete, polished game, rather than a heap of disjointed, unfinished chunks that simply “showed potential”.

There’s also all the time in the world for expansions and patches. :)
