I haven’t kept track of the game, so I’m not sure the current status. It doesn’t surprise me that it hasn’t shipped. Delivering a game is not easy, and delivering one on a schedule is impossible. My guess is that the money from the KickStarter campaign ran out a very long time ago and they are working day jobs while trying to finish the game. I doubt they’ve given up, although it is certainly possible.
I’m going through a version of that same nightmare now on a game I’m working on (www.kensgame.com). I was absolutely convinced the game would be done by November of this year, and now I’m thinking it will be early next year. It’s one reason I didn’t want to do a KickStarter campaign for my game. I didn’t like the idea of having people put money into the game and all the associated pressure to deliver something on a schedule.
Anyway, I haven’t spoken to the team on SpaceVenture in several years and don’t know their status. I really hope that they do ultimately deliver a game and I wish them all the success in the world.
