I've gotten an uptick in questions about Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem recently. By "uptick", I mean three questions about it, in the span of a week. There hasn't been any information released about the game. Some people are worried, some people are confused, and some people are angry.
I understand and accept Her Interactive's decision not to release any information on the game, until it's almost ready for release. I feel like, if they did anything else, that would be stirring up the hornet's nest.
There's also the fact that the art and dev is being outsourced, so maybe they just don't have day-to-day updates. Sort of like with the game I'm making now, The Pizza Delivery Boy Who Saved the World. My status update is "I sent everything to Paul the Programmer, and I'm waiting for him to finish". That's been my status update for a few months now. I guess I could bug him for daily statuses like "today, I tested out all the variables in the map puzzle", but that wouldn't do much besides annoy Paul and hinder his progress.
Speaking of Paul, we do a monthly podcast on gamedev! Check it out!
There's also the fact that the people who interact most with the fans are from the marketing department. You know, not the people who are directly responsible for making the game? Hassling them about the game is like hassling the finance department for the way the website looks. Being mean to the people about things they have no control over doesn't help anything.
