Action RPG 'Hellpoint' has been delayed until sometime in Q2 2020

By - | Views: 10,701

Cradle Games announced yesterday that their upcoming action RPG 'Hellpoint', has been delayed and they're not giving it a date now other than before the end of Q2 2020.

This means it's now likely sometime before the end of June, although as these things go it could be extended further. So why are they doing it? You can probably guess: "The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting businesses worldwide, and, unfortunately, Cradle Games are feeling the strain as well." they said in their announcement on Steam.

While they are no doubt affected, it probably doesn't help that their Free standalone demo/prologue type thing with Hellpoint: The Thespian Feast (Windows only supported), has so far not been getting good user ratings overall. So hopefully they can use this time to act on the feedback to make the full game, which will support Linux, better overall.

You can see their new teaser video below too:

I've completed the demo and am very much looking forward to this game :-)

As mentioned in some of the Steam reviews, there were some serious bugs back in February with enemies swarming the player but this was quickly fixed. You discover some of the more interesting portions of the game as you progress such as the clock feature which means that certain events (such as the appearance of some particularly tough enemies in an 'arena') only occur at certain times.

The game is very hard but not unfair and the checkpoints are reasonably well-placed. Highly recommended from this gamer!
