Strong Bad's Cool Game Delayed Until July

Posted by Darren Calvert

Here's an interesting snippet of gossip from the guys at Kotaku. It seems they are best buddies with the Chapman’s of Strong Bad fame. Over lunch today Matt Chapman let slip the following about Strong Bad Episode 1: Homestar Ruiner:

The game is actually now getting pushed back to July, but the game is going to just be much better for it. It's just development time.

What a shame, I know many of our readers were looking forward to this later in the month. Now more to the point, why doesn’t anyone cool ask us out for lunch?

Hey, if they're making it even better it will be worth it.

why don't you guys get asked out to lunch?
XGen, Noo, are you reading this?
buy these men a sandwich!

and i wasn't looking forward to this game anyway,
not to say it isn't good or anything, it just doesn't appeal to me.

and as for Brawl,
i wish they delayed it 2 more months, and fixed online.
if Brawl's online was half as good as Mario Kart's, it wouldn't be collecting dust right now.

mario kart's online is amazing. anyway, what do you do on this game? how do you play?

I think it's better if games are delayed to be better. Of course, Brawl was delayed so much I wasn't very hyped for it, but whatever.

Delayed until July?! DAMN!! But it does give me time to catch up and get Toki Tori and addition to VC.

@supermario about brawl

@Damo & Wiireview123; They did that for Wii music..... and still are.....

But, dang, I wish it came out earlier, I want to download the game and just say that I have a Strong Bad Video game.

Well, If the game will be BETTER for it, Then I'm cool with that.

I've been waiting 3 years for a Homestar Runner Video game, I can wait 'til July. Besides, that means more Brawl time for us Europeans!

Making a game Cool For Attractive People takes time. You've got to figure out who's Attractive first, then visit your psychologist to deal with intimacy issues... Then comes the arduous task of making the game Cool for those People, but Uncool for Unattractive People. Then you wake up in a cold sweat one day and realize you're not even sure what constitutes "People". And on like that...

They need the time to make the game work, that's more than fine with me.

I'm actually quite happy about this. Someone had the sense to delay the release date for the benefit of the game as opposed to putting it out unpolished. I can wait. I have other games. I want this one to be the best it can be. Strong Bad is awesome...



SmaMan said:

Maybe they're just doing it so that someone can email Strong Bad and ask him why the game's being delayed...oh well I'm willing to wait if it's for the better.
