Yea. For some reason Europeans forget that we are like 5 hours ahead of amercia and think that Klei realeases 2 seperate updates- 1 for america and another for the rest of the world

People posting to this forum often seem to have a shocking ignorance of time zones and how they work.

We've gotten the Hamlet DLC released in early access months before the actual release date, due to the demand.

...I think they're allowed to have a week or two's delay on an update.

I was really hoping for stuttering in the interiors fix because hamlet is unplayable right now for me. But as long as ONI works I'm happy. 

 

Get well guys and happy holidays :)

 

Also congratulations on the best devs nomination. Although I don't know what bethesda and ubisoft are doing there :D

First of all, I hope the members get better. Getting sick sucks. Second, happy holidays for you guys and thanks for the hard work you put in your games. And third, could we get at least some info of what we will be getting to DS on the QOL update?

Lol... I don't think Klei releases two updates... U crazy? Ik how time zones work... 

That's why I said one day layer for EU cuz it's usually the case updates coincide with the next day for us.

1. Did you actually understand my post...? I did not say Klei releases 2 seperate updates

2. I don't know why you and other people act like victims when new updates "are gonna be tommorw for us". Americans get updates at the same "time" as we do it's just that they have entire afternoon to enjoy it and we're most of the times sleeping cuz it's midnight. If you really want to play the update asap then pull an all-nighter. And if you don't want to do that cuz sleeping is good then don't complain on the forums.

Also, am I the only one who finds it ironic that some of the Klei devs are now bugged? Hope they get patched soon...they're breaking the physics and causing my game to do some WEIRD things, man.

I'm unsure if you're trolling (which would be a violation of Klei's Community Guidelines and grounds for being smote), or if you're being serious.

These guys work their butts off for us year-round, it's likely that some key programmers got sick and couldn't go into work because they don't want to get everyone else sick. That means that they cannot work on the game, which is a good thing because they need the rest.

It's also like what Jason said, which was basically:

Oh dear...this isn't as easy as we'd thought it would be. There's beefalo flying in the air, game destroying bugs, and the fences are attacking the players. This is going to take some more time in order to properly port this over so that it doesn't end up being just a colossal mess.

Image result for twitch not like this

Heavily paraphrasing...but still accurate nonetheless.

Which I mean...kinda makes sense seeing as they had to remake Don't Starve Together from the ground up...and I hope they don't have to do the same thing here, that'd be a nightmare.

Scrooge here.

I must say, I am quite disappointed in this announcement. I work in a deadline-driven job, yet our company is insistent that we do not go to work sick. We still get things done on time though. One of the ways we do that is to realize that people will be getting sick this time of year, and plan accordingly. So to blame this on sickness is really unacceptable.

I could see pushing it back a few days because some people got sick, but saying we won't see anything until well into the new year... I don't buy it. It just sounds to me like nobody wants to work on this game.

You're probably just a troll at this point but are you a game designer? It's not easy. There are huge issues with the port it will take more than a few days, plus Klei will be gone for awhile because of the holidays which is why it's being delayed so far back. I don't know about you but I've played other games where the developers kept delaying updates and eventually released a very buggy experience.

The people who got sick are probably the main programmers, why they can't continue at the moment.

I don't see why I should give these people a pass because they are game designers, and treat these dates as mere aspirational goals rather than sincere promises because it is hard. Lots of jobs are hard, and missing a deadline is breaking a promise--no matter who you are.

I agree, that does not bode well for this game.

Dude, these sorts of things are rough guestimates. Klei would much rather delay in order to polish, then to kick out a buggy mess that's only half finished, that's why Hamlet was delayed until December.

Also, please keep in mind that they are an Indie studio, and a Canadian one at that. They don't have the means nor the lack of humanity to run their studio like most AAA sweatshops.

Also also! This game is complete. Done, finito. They don't really have to add anymore content into the game, but because they love the fans so gosh darn much, they're deciding to go back to...dear god this is a 5 year old game?! To add more DLC as well as QoL content from what is essentially the sequel. Which they had to remake from the ground up. Neither game was made to be compatible, cross or backwards, so I'm pretty sure the devs are going to have to jerry-rig some new new code in order to make the new code work with the old code in order to port the new content to the old game.

Think about it this way: if Klei doesn't put time, effort, and dedication into doing this, we're going to end up with the Sonic Genesis for the Don't Starve franchise...and nobody wants that.

The crappy GBA port...not the original version.

Also note that Klei has almost never stuck to their estimated release dates when it comes to such big updates/DLCs/Games.

Hamlet, ONI...I'm pretty sure there was more (as in most of their predicted release windows...lookin' at you, ONI.) but I can't really think of any examples, because I came in with DST before A New Reign.

Spoiler

Also, bit of a side-note...

Call it a conspiracy, but I think that whenever the heads at Klei get impatient with how the game development is progressing, they make the dev team kick out a version of the game that's somewhat playable under the guise of "bug/beta testing", that way they get us to help make their games.

Spoiler

This is obviously a joke.

However I'd find it oddly funny if this is actually what happens.
