Escape Goat 2 delayed, new date to be set after PAX Prime

By Dave Cook, Tuesday, 27 August 2013 09:25 GMT

Escape Goat 2 developer Magical Time Bean has confirmed its puzzle game has been delayed, and that a new launch date will be announced after PAX Prime.

In a blog update from game designer Ian Stocker, the developer explained that creating the game’s map is responsible for the delay, and added, that the format “hadn’t quite been fully nailed down.”

That, along with preparations for PAX Prime and running the project in general has caused the date slip. The title was originally due to launch on September 10

He added, “It would be great to keep it within September, but that’s just an aspiration at this point, not a guarantee. My apologies to everyone who pre-ordered hoping to unwrap a shiny new Escape Goat 2 download on September 10. Please contact me if you want a refund. I’m hoping you stick around though, because this game is going to be a lot of fun.”

We’ll have more once the new date has been confirmed.
