Any word on when we can expect the next episode?

Because the wait is absolutely killing me. The game is like if Sword & Sworcery didn't have horribly disappointing writing, and instead had a brilliant non-threatening Americana ghost story vibe.

It seems like it's been delayed. They tweeted: "small delay (couple weeks) - we'll post some details here & in a newsletter soon :) thx for your patience!" So, maybe mid-May?

I wonder how long it'll take for all the episodes to be released. I'm thinking of waiting until the episodes are all finished and play them all at once.

>_> sigh, I'm probably going to do this too. Although, if it's an episodic game that's not by TellTale then it will probably take forever...

@meptron: According to one of their Kickstarter updates the planned to release the episodes every 2-3 month. So the final one should appear around January 2014...

Hey yeah, I've been really jonesing for the next episode. I guess I can wait a few weeks, but that means at least another month and a half before the next one if this is going to be the pace. Bah.

Is there already a fixed number of episodes? I remember hearing something to that effect, but I'm not sure. Is it 5?

Yeah, it's 5. So, I suppose it will be a long while before they're out. Perhaps even next year sometime.

@beachthunder: If they all come out, which is not a given by this point.

I can't wait for the next episode.

If you all are craving more of that style, try out Limits and Demonstrations, as well as Ruins. Both are quite worth checking out.

Yep. Might as well not even bother since you'll just get hooked on it. Then you'll have to wait until you lose interest or forget what happened last episode. I'm waiting until they're all out.

I'm also worried it'll take forever. They said every 2-3 months, but if the second ep is delayed it doesn't seem like that schedule will work out for them. It's been close to 4 months since the first ep!

Where is Act 3?? it has been 6 months now... I wonder if they will continiuosly increase the publishing time between Acts.

The delay is due to switching engines, they're now using Source engine and they released a tech demo recently 'The Entertainment' showing how the game will look in Source. I imagine future development time should be far shorter now they've made the switch.
