Team Woodsalt have announced their decision to delay the release of their narrative-led sci-fi JRPG Woodsalt “one more month” into January 2021.
“To everyone who has been waiting and were aware of Woodsalt, I’m sorry if you’re deflated by this and I do totally get it, but I hope you understand that while this is our passion, we also need to keep the lights on,” explains Team Woodsalt founder and producer George Berry.
“If this game tanks, we’re out of jobs and my choices affect our team as well as myself. Ultimately they’ve been by my side and supported me, and I can’t risk my impatience causing them to lose their future employment.
“The other reason is that through testing, there have been a number of ‘quality of life’ changes suggested that we think would really benefit the title. So far the reception has been really, really good and these little changes seem to just add a bit of intuitiveness into the gameplay.”
After evacuating Earth, Emcy wakes up 1000 years later in a sprawling city contained within a bubble called Nu-Terra. When a strange spectre wakes him on his first night, Emcy will soon discover that this is only the start of his troubles.
You must explore the world around you, shape Emcy’s path through the characters that you befriend and ultimately uncover a mystery that spans the entire universe and your own existence.
Your choices will lead you to one of multiple endings, in an experience that has taken inspiration from the golden age of Japanese role-playing games in the 1990s.
Woodsalt will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in January 2021 priced at £19.99 ($19.99).
