Wait, how do you know it's coming out tomorrow? I thought tomorrow was when final QA testing starts.

As I understand it Erik Rutins would give us word if it gets released this week, meaning thursday or more likely friday. And if not then sometime next week.
Wednesday was never mentioned as a release day, though it would be welcome :)

Codeforce and Matrix Games, please, do not rush this game.

I hope for a complete, feature filled, and smooth running game with a great AI.

Gamers, the company is working on some artwork and probably fine tuning the game.

No no... Erik said that, if nothing presents itself to delay the game by tomorrow, then it should release next week. At least that is how I read Erik's comment.

As a tester, I don't have any insider knowledge about release, just so you know. I just read the same comments you do.

If we don't have everything else we are waiting for by early Wednesday, then it will release next week due to the additional time required for the absolutely final QA steps. I'll keep you posted.

That's what eric said, and earlier i said if everything goes according to plan for them.

x2yzh9 has a point, at first I was like he is just hyping it up. However after analyzing and putting Eric's comment through the Contafabulator 2000mx, a simplified version of that comment means,

"The game will be released this week (Why did he mention Wednesday), unless the race artwork and one video were not done, which would push it to next week."

""Hi guys,

I think it will all come down to when the final pieces come in (we're waiting on some of the race art and one video). We're taking it day by day here and don't have a better estimate. If we don't have everything (Race art and one video) else we are waiting for by early Wednesday (Means a Friday release of this week), then it will release next week due to the additional time required for the absolutely final QA steps. I'll keep you posted.

Regards,

- Erik""

I read that as once the final artwork and movie is submitted, it will take two days of final QA before release.  Whether or not that will be this week depends on when it comes in.

I agree with you except for the great AI, I can't think of any game I've ever played that has had "great AI", at most they've had decent/slightly good. Though I guess I also in a sense hope for a great AI but I think it's an unrealistic expectation.

But I definitely agree with the "do not rush" part, far too many developers do it these days, and end up giving their customers a beta as a commercial product.
