Did you really JUST type that?

 

And who is supposed to finance Iron Galaxy. No one? Do updates just appear out of thin air? Or do YOU work for free too?

 

Oh that's right you are one of the ones who think you can do better. Your little edit message gave you away. I suppose you also think A17 is being delayed because.....its making Pimps MORE money to take longer right?

 

So advise us all of the master plan. You know, since A17 is JUST an update and all.

 

 

 

Edit - Sorry in advance. NOT in the mood for idiocy today. Probably should stay away from here for the rest of the day.

 

*spit* that's a bit too much salt, thank you very much!

 

My little edit message was supposed to be witty, not arrogant. Looks like you don't see things the same way - which is fine.

 

To answer your question - I do happen to work for free on weekends, I hope at least THAT's OK?

I don't know whether or not Telltale is financing Iron Galaxy or not - but until the story develops further I'll refrain from further comments - it looks like it upsets some people too much.

Or did you simply believe that now that Telltale is in dire straights, everyone will pack up and go home?

 

And I never said it's JUST an update!!! I said "it's a MAJOR update," - words twists aren't something I will ever fall for ;)

 

To answer your second query - my master plan is to sit tight and wait for an update - and pay for it if need be! I'm hardly the first person here willing to do so.

 

Have a lovely weekend!

why is that ?

 

I was going to question this myself until I did a bit of research.

 

It seems that TellTale's downfall (pun intended) was largely due to what has been described as "toxic management". This shouldn't really be blamed on the developers who were often over-worked and under-paid. Unfortunately most of the great developer talent had left the company years ago when this started to manifest. It might be worth hiring a developer or two but I'd steer well clear of hiring any management staff.

What I've read is that they had so many things to work on that it was too much for them to keep up. Working on projects involving DC and Netflix aside from all their major projects such as The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us and the contract were they agreed to work on Minecraft Story Mode as well... in the end they were spending way more than what they were earning, so it's no wonder they shut down.

Well....actually we do owe you something. If you can prove to me you are a backer then we owe you a backer badge for the forums that proclaims you as an original survivor. PM me if interested. :)

 

You know I went through my account here, maybe a year ago trying to find out about that backer badge. I should have some emails or something. I'll get digging :smile-new:

That's mighty nice of you Jax… You're a great guy, responsible for a great mod. All the best to you!

 

That reminds me; I need my coffee too! (been here for a while and just saw the time)

Or not. Dont want their cash reserves to implode like telltail's probably did.

 

Then again, a good plot/story person working at 7D2D would be great, it could point the direction to a 7D2D part 2!

 

As long as pointing isn't a quicktime event :smile-new:

 

Iron galaxy is the studio that's actually developing it for the consoles telltale games is just the publisher of 7 days to die. if telltale games would have gone out of business that would be something else. they'd would have had to find a new publisher to bring it to console. but since telltale cutting back on employees i dont know how or if it will affect iron galaxy releasing updates.

 

Usually publishers send development money in "digestable pieces" to the developer. Every few months the publisher inspects the newest (internal) version of the game. And if he thinks it is worth continuing he sends another partial payment to fund development until the next inspection.

 

BUT, since Iron galaxy work depends on TFP's work, the contract has to take that into account. So Iron Galaxy probably isn't working non-stop on 7D2D but incorporates things as they come down the pipeline from TFP, and their schedule is also dependent on TFP.

 

One possible way this could be handled is that IG gets payed after release of a newly ported alpha to fund the porting of the next alpha. This would mean that the version based on A16 will be released but unless Telltale already funded the next step (which is unlikely) it would be the last version unless someone else steps in as publisher.

That would be interesting to know how far we are in percent.

 

Roland, many people are impatient, maybe a percentage estimate would be the best way to at least give people some hope.

The Fun Pimps don't give estimates, or it could cause frictions when the possible timeline isn't met.

 

Possibly "sometime in October" is your best bet right now (and that's just me saying this, not The Fun Pimps).

May i ask how far are we in percentual number?

 

At 110%. The 10% over target are causing bugs so they are now working on reducing that number. :cocksure:

Well either telltale games sells the rights to 7 days to die. Or people who own it on console is really screwed. and what ever last update they got is the last they will ever get.

 

It wouldn't be the first time something like this has happened and highly doubt it will be the last time.

 

All one can do from here is wait it out and see what happens.

So I'm back from my 3-week honeymoon in the USA. What's the state of development? It's current pace is starting to be measurable by geologists..

Soon.

You have to adjust anyway. From what I understand switching from ignore-girlfriend-to-play-7Days is a bit different from ignore-wife-to-play-7Days.

Looking at the metamorphosis and erosion rate of the emojis I'd say we're looking at next weekend or the weekend after.

Like 3 weeks ago. No new madmole video (when he said he would have done a new one the next week after the last video) and no new info.

I think the update won't get out until the last days of November. More than a year for an update, the next one will be 2 years :eek2:

Well.. let me put it this way. It's probably easier to ignore a 49-day horde bursting through the last layer of defence in your fort, than to ignore my wife ^^

I like it when you start using those sexy words! :)
