Hello Erik,

Would you be able to tell us if you are on target for a 23rd release, ie; is all the artwork in place etc?

Thanks

drillerman,

I believe it may be released earlier than the 23rd, and for those nay sayers,
here is a direct quote from Erik, "If the race art is finished sooner, we'll release sooner"

Don't underestimate the will of the developers to want to finally be paid for their hardwork, and believe me my $40-$50 will be one the first going into their and Matrix's pockets, lol.

Erik of Matrix Games has previously stated that they will not do pre-orders.

It's Swedish damnit! Not Sweddish!

How dare you mock the greatest piece of food my country has ever come up with?

Kinda worried by the lack of official response here, especially as we're less than a week away from the "latest" day of release.

I understand that it's probably noses to the grindstone trying to finish the game off (if so, please carry on! :D) but some form of response would be nice, be it "yes we're still on course for the 23rd", or "no, the date's slipped, but here's a video/picture/information to tide you over". :)

Hi guys, the latest update is that the final alien race art will be done on the 23rd/24th. We expect to be able to release within a day of the art being done and plugged into the game as we have already gone through every QA process except for the final store link/master verification which at this point should take about a day. We'll keep you posted!

Actually, I believe this recipe was taught to the ancient Swedes by aliens visiting from another system.

I think they should add some more art work and release DW on the 1st of April.

It's true..

The Vikings were in fact controlled by alien overlords!
