If a developer loses drive to finish their game because of people's negative opinions, they are probably in the wrong field.

Doubly so, if you've chosen to crowd source your game's development budget.

You're entitled to say you sleep with horses, but you won't receive any blessing from me.

"The good news is that developer War Balloon Games has decided to launch exploration simulation Star Command worldwide rather than limit it to a few test territories.

The bad news is that Star Command probably won't be released this month like promised."

"The Colorado-based dev is aware that it has "missed too many dates to not get this one right", and has promised that it will definitely hit the next release date that it announces."

Hmm, I'm really looking forward to this but I cannot deny I am worried for them. It's a good job they are an independent and not answering to anyone because continually missing every single date they have ever set themselves does not exactly bode well.

Fingers crossed it is more a case of them being "over protective parents" of their new baby that is leading to this new delay rather than "oh shit it just plain doesn't work".

If they aren't careful someone is going to look at their fantastic idea and beat them to market with it (a port of FTL is not beyond the realm of possibility I would think).

ho hum, we wait in hope

The developers are really going to great lengths to shrug off the Faster Than Light comparison.

I was on Facebook reading the comments because they opened up shop on t shirts but someone asked its my birthday on the 30th can I get the game before then? Well they replied back with you won't but apple will.

So does this mean between next week and the 30th the game will get released?
They will send it to apple for review before the 30th. But it means that there will be no release this month, but early feb :-)

I discovered this game 3 days ago and been following it and reading about it the whole time.I got high hopes for it, but I'm also afraid that it doesn't become repetitive soon, I didn't see much variety in enemies or ships in released game footage videos.
Keep my fingers crossed that final product proves me I'm wrong and paves it's way into one of best games for iOS.
