    Hello all,

    We’ll make this quick because we’re all very busy working on builds. The game is coming along nicely now. We’ve tested with mods who have found 100’s of issues for us to fix and we’ve spent the last couple of weeks doing so. We’ll be releasing to backers in November, for better or worse. Our transparency has cost us. Being open and optimistic with the community and setting rough ETA's has backfired and is now held against us. Guesstimates to the endless "when" questions are considered to be fact by some. Now we'll release a build we'll likely not be happy with to calm those thinking we're running some kind of scam. That being said, I'm sure we'll never really be happy with a build, never think a feature is good enough. Survive the Nights is not just a game to the developers, it's our future and the future of our families. We’ll do one more week of mod testing to go over the issues they've found in previous testing rounds and next weekend I will provide you with a tentative November release date. Come speak with us on discord if you’d like.

    Thanks much for the continued support!

    AI its time to release! there will never be a right time for a developer who is releasing an early access game. BUt the delays have pushed a lot of people away since i waited in 2014/15. No-one is expecting a finished product, or even close, also seems like a good release window now, theres not much else going on, lots of bored people sitting around :mad:)

    Thank for the update. Will be glad when it's released, been looking forward to this game for lil over a year. , i haven't found a descent game to play since they broke 7 Days to Die. any true developer is never satisfied with a realse they always see faults because it's there babies, they created it , birthed it. A+++ for a2z

    As always, patiently waiting and trying to help where ever I can. Couldn't be any more straight forward of an update than that. IMO, take whatever time you guys need. Good work so far!

    Kinda sad that a certain part of the community has pushed the entire thing this way, especially taking into consideration that they will most likely be the first ones to bitch once backer release comes rolling through.

    I guess we just have to wait and see how it all evolves.
    Don't let em get to ya too much guys, y'all been doing great.

    JB, First and foremost on behalf of myself and other's that are on the same page as myself I Thank you and the team for all your hard work. I know that this isn't an easy task and I have the up most respect for you and your decisions. Just know that we all don't think that you or anyone is scamming and we fully support you. But myself and other Backers are truly thankful to be able to get our hands on this masterpiece and to be able to hopefully help you with the progression by helping identify bugs in a larger number making the Development team being able to sole focus on tasks at hand. Again a massive thank you!

    You know I kinda feel bad for a2z. They really don’t feel it’s ready to release to us backers. This being there baby and all. So I wish y’all luck and hope y’all continue making games after this one. This has been a hard road traveled for these devs. Remember these guys a few years ago wasn’t even developers. Let’s give them a big round of applause and show them that as backers we back them 100%. They have came a really long way in a few short years.
    Good luck and god speed
