Scorn Skips October 2018 Release as It Receives Additional Funding
Scorn, the H.R. Giger / Zdzislaw Beksinski-inspired survival horror game from independent developer Ebb Software, won’t be making its October 2018 release date as originally intended. Before you start pulling off body parts in a fit of rage, there’s a hefty dose of good news as to why the game has been delayed.
Ebb Software has announced that their premier horror title has received additional development funds from an investor(s). This will allow them to develop and release the entire Scorn game as one cohesive experience, although, at a date later than that of Scorn Part 1 of 2: Dasein — which was originally to release this October. The team had initially split the project into two games so that Dasein sales would help fund Part 2. With additional funding, they no longer need to do this.
The blog post on the game’s website eases concerns for expectant horror fans and Scorn Kickstarter backers by announcing that all backers will receive the full Scorn game (instead of just Dasein), plus any extra rewards from the tiers they had chosen. If any backers are upset by the delay, they have the option to request a refund.
Lastly, Ebb acknowledges recent Kickstarter-funded indie horror games that weren’t received well (perhaps referencing Madmind Studio’s Agony) and assured players that they are “making the best game possible.” For more info, check out the full post on Scorn’s website.
