Hello,

VizionEck was originally planned to release Holiday 2014. Now the game is releasing just a bit later in 2015. There are a few reasons for this delay.

1. More content at launch
VizionEck has a unique free DLC system that promises continuous and feature rich DLC as long as the game is active. I have decided it'd be best to take the first few DLCs and include them at launch. Long term this doesn't affect the game, but day one it creates a larger and deeper VizionEck.

2. The game needs more marketing
Releasing VizionEck with its current public perception and awareness would be less than ideal. Since I'm effectively a one man company, it's a challenge balancing making the game and marketing the game. This delay allows me to do both to their full potential.

3. It'll be ready when it's ready
It was entirely realistic to release VizionEck this year, but about two months ago I determined I'd have to speed some things up in order to hit the deadline. I already worked on VizionEck almost 24/7 so it would have meant a potential decrease in game quality. First and foremost, I want VizionEck to be a great game. Releasing with common glitches or broken features is unacceptable. I'm working hard to get the game out as soon as possible but I refuse to sacrifice quality for artificial reasons.

I think its a good decision. Reviews and word of mouth post launch is what will ultimately lead to greater success to a new unknown title. Making the game the best it can be is entirely in your control so i think best to take the time to do so.
Vizioneck STILL not banned at my workplace \O/

Good decision imo, due to all of above and also because it gives the game a chance for more exposure without getting lost among dozens of big holiday games.

What is this?!? Spending more time to make the game better! What madness! :P

Glad to hear you'll take extra time to polish the game and put out something your proud of instead of meeting some dead line. Look forward to playing it in 2015.

Hahaha I guess, but I'm really spending way too much time on this forum. The website itself, yeah, that's part of marketing. The forum though is mostly just our playground.

Actually I only do spell to a million when I'm on mobile.

It's all the new forum features that are me procrastinating.

This is unacceptable and inconceivable.

Does Sony give any flack for delays?

Oh the fruits of this delay are already paying off.

Just thought of a really unique photomode feature, and I'll actually be able to add it!

Worth it, we dont want to see any bugs or glitches like the big AAA studios have with their games!
