Now this is how you delay a game

We only just got word that Crawl would arrive on Steam Early Access on July 17, but that's no longer the case. The four-person dungeon crawler is going to be late -- "it could be a couple days, it could be a couple weeks," reckons Powerhoof -- while a tax issue at the studio is resolved.

The team put together a .gif explaining the situation, and it's just the best. Find it below.

Crawl Launch Delayed... [Powerhoof]

With the delay, Powerhoof says "We don't know how much extra time we'll have, but since we already have the build ready to go we can start adding some of our cool wishlist ideas!"

I'm trying to be exceedingly cautious about buying games on Early Access but, like Steven, Crawl looks tempting to me. I'd rather hold out if at all possible, though.

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...more

Slay the hero to become him in Crawl

Last year we got a brief look at Crawl which has the most ingenious multiplayer system I've seen in a long time. One player will take on a courageous hero, hacking and slashing his way through a dungeon whilst the other play...more

Review: Chariot

Local cooperative play is something that's been increasingly neglected in an age of videogames that pushes online connectivity seemingly first and foremost. It's ironic that titles like Destiny are the current benchmark ...more
