I don't believe so. I think it''s a small team passionate about the project and concentrating on delivering a great , enduring game , rather than relying on pre-hype. I'd rather they got the game right than spent time with daily updates and answering everyone''s questions.

When is the combat demo?

A set date has not been announced but word on the discord is very soon, probably won't be in the next 3 days but hopefully early February. At this point it is mainly the programmer working on the demo, finishing the character creation tool, while the writers are focused on designing quests for the game.  Plan is to go to Steam early access in a few months after the backers who pledged for the demo give their feedback on the combat and character creation.

Last "update" from Discord: "in a few weeks" (probably 3-6 but who knows, maybe they're joking).

As soon as we can estimate the release more accurate, we'll announce that. But right now, it would be unreliable  to promise the exact date.

It's a realistic estimation, then, that the game won't be out before 2021? I don't complain, though; I'm fine. I'm just trying to adjust my gaming budget plan.

Ceres Games,  March 10th, 2020:

"we're still working on finishing the version.

Right now, we are completing the script interface, e.g. to interact with level objects such as doors or traps. Beside that, we're adding event based text feedback for the characters during the combat and polishing encounters along with fixing bugs.

The next update will be most likely the release of the coombat demo itself."

It's intended to be sort of a vertical slice of the main game (but will not in any way spoil the story from the actual game).   There will be a character creation tool that will be near final quality to make a party from scratch  And also merchants to allow you to equip your characters with weapons, armor, etc. I gather there will even be simple quests and dialogue (but not necessarily as complex or interesting as what will be in the final game).  World Map travel. And of course, the most important feature to test: combat encounters.

Just a reminder the combat beta will only go out to Kickstarter backers who pledged high enough for it (both as a reward to them for donating a decent chunk of money and so that Ceres can manage feedback by not having a large amount of initial beta testers).  However, if all goes well, they hope to release an Early Access version on Steam within a few months after the backer beta.   So hopefully it will at least be Early Access by end of the year .
