The Serbian studio Ebb Software was founded in 2013 and has been working on a single game since then – the horror adventure Scorn, which captivated players with its unusual artistic style based on the work of Hans Reudi Giger (the man responsible for the Alien).
The team introduced Scorn to the world in 2014 and went through an unsuccessful kickstarter campaign in the same year. However, an investor was found, thanks to which the development could start at full speed. In 2017, the authors tried it again with Kickstarter, and this time successfully.
Then came a period of silence so that in 2020 we would have a new trailer with the announcement of a plan to release the game only on computers and the new Xbox, this year. But even this year, 7 years after the announcement of the game, Scorn players will not wait.
The game was secretly postponed to next year at the end of September this year. Now this delay is acknowledged by the creators in the new update, which separates the whole year from the previous one. In the update, they say that they will not officially announce the postponement until December 10, even though everyone already knows about it.
Campaign players and backers generally complain about the lengthy development of the game and the absence of any communication from the developers with the community. Why this is the case is illustrated by the latest update. And not exactly a pleasant way.
Tone update some campaigners have called offensive, slanderous players annoyed by the studio, which is trying to focus all its efforts on development and does not intend to deal with such nonsense as keeping its fans in the picture.
Therefore, many of them do not hesitate and approach the friendly advice of the developers, which reads: “If the lack of communication is so annoying, ask for a refund and end it. Its only a game. You can play it when she’s out, if you’re still interested. ”The comments below the update are therefore full of refund requests.
The creators may have been able to choose words more judiciously, but as distant observers, we certainly do not have all the information. Who knows what impatient players are bombarding them with or whether they are explicitly threatening them, which is unfortunately not unusual.
The developers mention in the update how it is with the development. They point to the fact that they are a new studio and are working on their first game, so logically, mistakes and bad decisions are made. As an example, they state that only 10% of what they created by mid-2018 remained, the rest was fired. And what was left was reworked.
So there is no doubt about the turbulence of Scorn’s development and that the developers are going through their own purgatory. But we can’t be too surprised by the players who don’t find the studio’s approach to the community right.
