Vaporum: Lockdown delayed into later this year as the game has grown

By - | Views: 14,724

Vaporum: Lockdown is a prequel to the 3D real-time dungeon crawler Vaporum that was pretty great, and it's now delayed but it's not all bad news.

They're now saying it's moved from Q1 to sometime in Q2 this year, meaning it should be out before the end of June. Not exactly a long delay but they have a good enough reason: it's got bigger. They said it's grown into a "fully fledged, standalone game that expands on everything that made Vaporum good, and also brings a lot of new, fresh ideas" which is costing more time. Another reason is the Coronavirus, as their studio has been in their own "lockdown" since earlier in March with all of them now working from home.

At release these are the planned features:

  • First person real-time combat
  • Unique Stop Time Mode
  • Puzzles and level-wide objectives
  • Gadget-based RPG system
  • Lots of exploration, loot, and character customization
  • Mysterious storyline filled with secrets
  • Fully voiced main characters
  • Immersive steampunk setting

The first game did have a great setting, good visuals, fun real-time combat that was quite tricky and it was also very atmospheric. From the screenshots they've been showing off, it definitely looks like they're keeping the quality up at a high bar.

You can wishlist/follow Vaporum: Lockdown on Steam.

Loved the first game. I'm happily waiting a bit longer for more content!
They did ask on Twitter what OS you'll use (and why) to play it btw..

GNU/Linux of course, because it's the only platform I have. I would prefer via GOG as well, seeing as that's where I have the first game.

Definitely want this prequel as well, and more than happy to wait for them to take a bit longer. It's not like I don't have other games and hobbies; no rush, make a good game, I'll play it when it's ready.
