Re: WHY can't Playtonic Games explain why they can't announce a Switch date?

Shawnsim, if you're one of the lucky people who was already hardware that can play the game, that's great that you can avoid this mess. But that doesn't mean there isn't a mess that Playtonic and other fans have to deal with. Very few would care about the late-announced Switch version being delayed ...

Re: WHY can't Playtonic Games explain why they can't announce a Switch date?

I'd be OK with closing the backerkit if you wanted physical - Playtonic would have to get their ducks in a row and collect their extra fee. But if you are going digital on any platform, it shouldn't close, as you should have up until the codes are sent out to decide what platform you're getting it on.

Re: WHY can't Playtonic Games explain why they can't announce a Switch date?

I get it, that's a totally uncommitted answer.

Can they say "It is realistic - but not guaranteed - that we can release this game on Switch on April 11th."? Or can they say "We expect that the Switch version will release weeks/months/quarters later."?

WHY can't Playtonic Games explain why they can't announce a Switch date?

We get it - Switch is going to be delayed from other platform's launch for whatever reason that they failed as a developer. That's fine. Just explain why you aren't even confirming that it's going to be a late launch. Ideally it'd be nice if they think it'll be Summer 2017 or Holiday 2017 that it fi...

Re: Nintendo Switch or Steam?

It seems that because Playtonic cannot confirm a release date for the Switch, that if you are impatient, you should get it on Steam. That will be the only way to play it day one. It's likely the Switch release will be a dumbed-down version that releases 3 months later anyway. Gotta love that Nintend...

Re: Nintendo Switch or Steam?

I'll go with the Steam version? Why? - Your pc can be improved anytime. I've got Humble Bundle games I scored for a few bucks, knowing I couldn't play them at the time, but perhaps in the future. That was 5 years ago and I still haven't played them because I probably don't have the specs for them.

@Scrubber, I thought you couldn't, because the console toybox is only for people that preorder it?

I'd like to get some news from Playtonic regarding the Switch release date for both digital and physical. And ethereal.

Re: Website's been hacked.

I am glad I didn't miss out on seeing the hack. Not too much to see, seemed like a 90s decorative gif, lots of Comic Sans, and denouncing ISIS. I didn't screenshot just so Playtonic could move on from that incident, but made this post to slightly satisfy but them probably also stimulate anyone's cur...

From the email *** All changes (including shipping addresses if those apply) must be finalised by Thursday, 16th February, 2017 *** There's still unanswered questions making it impossible to make an informed decision. 1) When is the Switch version coming out? 2) How can I learn if my PC (well, my br...

Re Switch: We’re working as hard and fast as we can to get you the answers you’re looking for. Thanks for your patience.

Re: Not very happy

I don't think backers want VIP treatment - else they would've already backed in the really high backer categories - they just don't want backburner treatment. That is, don't treat the non-backers better than the backers. Toyboxes on consoles? Not available to backers! Tough luck if you don't have a ...

Re: Switch is confirmed!

Day 1 release is April 11th, 2017. If the Switch releases in May, that's is not Day 1 release, in any logical or accepted sense. Switch isn't getting Day 1 Skyrim. It's getting Year 6 Skyrim. --- See any of the other threads talking about how pre-order people get a toybox. See any other threads abou...

Re: Not very happy

Understandable. The thing you should take from this is that backing a game on Kickstarter is not the same as pre-ordering it. Nah, I think it's more important what we take from this is Playtonic is just another generic indie dev. Despite hundreds of years of cumulative experience in the industry am...

My goodness, I guess my point was completely missed then. Let me make it clearer. -I own a Wii U -I love the Wii U -I backed for a digital Wii U copy -I do not own a PS4 (Yet) But despite all this... -I think the £20 upgrade price is reasonable considering its optional -I think Playtonic have been ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee has gone gold!

Oh, so now that the first half of the game is done, they can start making the second half with the DLC ideas they generated over the past year.

Re: Switch is confirmed!

Like announcing a kickstarter for a game they'd love to develop for the Wii U, and to ensure it's done right, they'd develop it themselves directly on the Wii U and have the PS4 and XBO and Mac just be ports............ couple things: 1. Yes, I would rather they learn from the misstep with the Wii-...

Re: Switch is confirmed!

I am getting more and more psyched as time goes on. People complaining about the upgrade price need to get a bloody grip already. You realise upgrading is OPTIONAL, right? Plus, you weren't forced to back this project in the first place, stop being so damn entitled. Sounds like someone who didn't g...
