So, I was sitting around drooling over 'Return of the Shakturi' when it hit me! There were no pre-order options. How come?

I don't know...they said the game would come out before Christmas, and if I had to guess I would say that it will come out some time next week.  A pre-order should have been done right after they announced they were working on it IMHO.

We don't do pre-orders in general, because we prefer to take your money once we can give you something in return. Software development is never 100% predictable.

We are indeed aiming for a release by the end of next week. Hopefully that will happen. Right now things are still looking good as far as that schedule goes.

Regards,

- Erik

I actually prefer the Matrix policy on orders. No paying for something then getting a refund when it falls through. If you buy it here, it is already released.

Well, that is a good reason and I like your dedication to your fans and customers. I am very glad to hear your aiming for next week! Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside! Congrats on what looks like an awesome expansion...I know it had to have been some hard work. Merry Christmas!! Don't forget to buy yourself something as a gift from us forum folk.

El doctor Apostle dicho que el había jugando demasiado Distant Worlds y ahora no se puede diferenciar el sueno a la realidad.
(As a consequence of playing way to much Distant Worlds some people may encounter troubles to seperate their dreams from reality.)

c'mon DrApostle am I right?
