No, it was caused by the three month vacation they gave the entire studio back in May-July .
Oh hey while I have your attention, maybe for 2022 you guys can publish an accurate roadmap in which you don't bite off more you can chew with every update so they don't come late and half finished.
I'd love to do that, but we have another 12 months of vacation coming up.
Oh. Well, I do remember a vacation in there but yeah. If you did take one I would not begrudge it at all.
Thanks for clearing it up. We can't have these leaf lovers spreading bad rumors.
Thanks for making a fantastic game!
We do have a standard 2-week thing during July where there's no lunch at the office and people are supposed to spend some of their vacation days (we have standard 5+1 weeks a year in Denmark) - some people do three of their weeks there since it's also a school holiday. We announce that every year in July, so I don't really know where the three months are coming from other than people are very quick to jump to conclusions without having any knowledge of how game development actually works. And to be clear, I'm not shaming people for not knowing that at all - I save that for those automatically thinking we're resting on our laurels or goofing off. For example, I don't think our foosball table has seen any real action for two years or so. :D
I think maybe some got this impression when (I think last year) you released a MASSIVE update and after that you said something along the lines of "next update is about 3 months away. Time for vacations".
I might remember incorrectly tho. Obviously you didnt take 3 months off, just that before that, updates were smaller and monthly.
Could be. We did warn that it would take longer because it’s the biggest update yet and that we, like every year, have a few weeks over the summer where the office is somewhat closed. It will be worth it. ;)
