Where Cards Fall: The Dreamlike Game gets Delayed

     Snowman Games has announced that they have a second game being delayed this year following Alto's Odyssey being pushed back earlier this year.  Snowman, along with developer The Game Band's, upcoming title Where Cards Fall is being delayed from its original Fall 2017 estimate with no firm release window.

     Where Cards Fall is a beautiful and curious looking game from humble beginnings as a student project, and that over the course of its last 5 years of development has recently needed a change in direction.  The creators' final vision of it is finally being put on the right course, and on this new path, they are reassuring us that the end project will be made much better for it. 

     The Game Band’s creative director Sam Rosenthal said:
     "When we first announced Where Cards Fall, I talked about how the game is meant to feel like a bittersweet memory. By revisiting the past, we want to explore how we build our futures over many years. 
     We chose our cards. We put them together. We built a house. The house wasn’t quite right. We knocked it down. We started again. 
     When we teamed up with Snowman, we caught a glimpse of our dream house. So we took everything down to the studs and built a much stronger foundation. With all that said, it’s looking like we’ll need some more time to finish decorating."  
     The Game Band says they've found the dream version of this project is in sight and they will be slowly updating us with news in the coming months of Where Cards Fall's game mechanics, its story, and peaks into the dreamlike world they've been building- along with a much more firm release date when it becomes clear.

     Rosenthal finished his message with the lovely sentiment, "Thank you for your support, and for your patience. I know delays have become a bit of a cliché in video games, but new ideas are hard to build properly on the first try. Sometimes you need to let your creation fall to see what it can become."
     It's good to hear that they have put a large importance on making the best game possible, and taking the time to do it right- instead of forcing something out as fast as possible.
