#45 [EN] Expected release for June 22

Hi everyone,
Today I have bad news and three good news to announce!

Let’s start with the bad, Golden Panic will not released today. Although we worked like crazy all week to be ready (Which is the case because Steam approved the game and the store page that night), we finally decided to shift a little more the release date for marketing reasons.

Let us pass to the good news, first, you will enjoy the beta of Golden Panic a little longer because we decided to release the game on June 21 5 pm Pacific time, Thursday 22 June at 3am in France.

Second good news, this date was not chosen at random because we will release the game very shortly before the beginning of the summer sales. The goal is to take advantage of the great emphasis that enjoys the games sold during this period. In our case one can not really talk about sales but discount of launch that will last shorter (one week).

Last good news,we will have a little more time and less pressure to correct and improve some features and thus further increase our chances of success somewhat. (
But also to communicate a little everywhere about the release of the game).

You can go take a look at the shop page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/614550/Golden_Panic/

The next few weeks will be exclusively dedicated to the correction of bugs and improvements, there will be no notable addition to share can be new objects to use in the editor. The goal is to limit the addition of new features before the game is released and thus avoid creating a new bug.

I also take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all who came to test the game with us, we were able to fix some bugs and your suggestions were more than once relevant!
