A forumer had PM'd me today asking about the game, and I figured I'd update you guys on some of the info:

Q: Any new info on the game coming soon? Is it going to make it out this year? Or are there some problems that nobody's ready to talk about? I think people want to hear something.

A: The game will be out soon, but since we have the luxury of not rushing in to a launch date (we cut out the publishers entirely on this game and in doing so also removed the "YOU HAVE TO SHIP BY HOLIDAY OR ELSE" bullshit), we decided we would take as much time as we needed to get the game RIGHT. We realized that if we're going to do this, we're not going to half-ass it. There aren't any problems, the band is still together and no one has gone on any coke binges.

Some guy.

    But...coke binges are what you look forward to doing when you're famous!

    Also, please don't rush it, take your sweet time! Now that we have Blizzivision, you guys might well be the only game developer that will give us high quality stuff 'when it's ready'.

    Any rough ETA? I'll settle for "maybe march" or even "Spring 2008".

    I will wait patiently for the beautiful art work of Mike-fucking-Krahulik with it's gorgeous cell-shading and orgasmic textures. I will idle steadfast for the brilliant tapestry of literature woven sans Jerry Holkins. Oh, and Fruit Fucker....definitely Fruit Fucker.

    How much are you pressuring Gamespot to give it a good score so they can get the exclusive?

    I kid, I kid...

    I just hope they are taking the extra time to add more Twisp and Catsby. Hell I'd buy a game just with them in it.

    The Wonderful Adventures of Twisp and Catsby :P

    That would be the best point-and-click adventure ever made.

    As much as I hate to say 'Put these characters into that other game for instant success!' (because at least try to have some original ideas of your own), they'd fit so well in a Sam and Max or DotT game and story, it'd be criminal not to do it.
