    inXile seems to have the most amount of devs who read/post on the Codex, sea's actually an outlier here. :M

    I don't think inxile was expecting a significant number of codexers to shit on their magnus opus, especially considering some of our management here.

    It's funny to see how butthurt Sea and BN became.

    The more respectable and mainstream developers become the less they are going to be affiliated with communities like the Codex.

    If it's a developer launching a new risky rpg game on kickstarter, first timers, or long lost glories, they will invariably come here to suck enough codex dick to get some positive community word of mouth for the upcoming crowd funding campaign, and get a few extra monies out of it.

    Otherwise, we have outliers or in-house developers.

    Has he actually gotten upset at some of the feedback? Or are we just inferring that from his absence?

    I know if I was a dev I probably wouldn't say jack shit on the codex till the game was done. But that's just me.

    He hasn't posted here in nearly a year, but has no problems tweeting away or posting at the Obsidian forums like so https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/85839-obsidians-creative-direaction/page-4#entry1799710

    Dumb is right, but in the RPG and broader game development community being a Codex regular has acquired overtones of a political statement.

    Since the thread has been derailed significantly, can someone tell me if there is an estimated release date for the game? Or if the beta is getting any updates?

    Estimated release is this year sometime, nothing more specific. In recent interviews they have said they are on track for that.

    And yes there are supposed to be updates coming.

    't is, indeed. We've been doing some major updates and reworkings across the board internally, adding missing features like merchants, updating the UI from its initial first-pass state, overhauling several game mechanics, systems and content. There was no great spot to patch without breaking more than we'd fix with a lot of things partially implemented, but we're getting there. No ETA, but the next patch will definitely be a big 'un.

    One might view Torment as the end result of the Atari-Purgatorio adventure.

    Purgatorio would have been an expansion pack for NWN2 courtesy of Lawrence Liberty and the Rogue Dao team.

    Yeah Purgatorio getting blocked because "Planescape" was not a viable property (lol) was as frustrating as Aliens: Crucible falling victim to the 2008-2009 financial / liquidity crisis.

    I miss the days when I could send a few e-mails to InXile support and see sea's instant reaction butthurt on the Shoutbox.
    Rest in pieces, sea-llout.

    So, it's mid 2016. They are planning to releas in early 2017 or something?
    I wonder how long inExile is running on negative cash already
