Way back in 2014, Valve were approving games from Greenlight in batches. In one particular batch the game 'Northern Shadow' came up on my radar as a very promising looking RPG. Sadly though, it has officially ceased development.
The developer posted this on the Greenlight page:
QuoteFirst of all, a big thank you to everyone that supported the game. Seeing so many people interested in the game was an amazing experience. Thank you!
I’ve worked on the game as a solo developer until the start of 2016. At that point it became apparent that the game I was working had gradually ended up being a completely different game. I had hoped to maybe somehow preserve the original vision of Northern Shadow, but fortunately after a year of development that effort has failed. And it's time to call it.
Development of Northern Shadow ended on January 2016. Huge thanks to everyone that followed the development over the years.
Thanks for reading!
The announcement seems to be rather late, nearly a year late in fact. It's always sad to see developers fizzle-out and have their games cease development, but such is the way when you're working alone. Burn-out is a very real problem, as is feature-creep when you're working to your own single vision.
Thanks for letting me know Brian.
