Space survival game ROKH has suspended development

    
19

Following ROKH’s early access debut in May 2017, the space survival game faced significant obstacles. It got bogged down in a legal dispute last fall and vied for the attention of its dev team when a new project arose this past spring, though at the time the developers promised they wouldn’t abandon its original game and backers. It was one of the games that MOP’s MJ wanted to love but said that she couldn’t (yet).

But hope is dwindling fast for the game, especially now that Darewise Entertainment has officially confirmed that ROKH’s development has been suspended.

“We are on the hunt, every day, for a publisher or a financial partner to bring back ROKH in development,” said the studio. “It takes times but we won’t give up until we exhausted all options. We do understand the frustration. Unfortunately, we need a new source of funding to go on with the development as the game makes barely zero revenue at the moment.”

Darewise has asked that supporters create a petition for the revival of the game in order to show potential investors that there is an audience for this project.

Interestingly enough, we can see all the people they added to their company’s website since last March :

We are on the hunt, every day

That’s complete bullshit, as the expired security certificate (for 2 months now) shows on their website. That’s compounded by their lack of posts or news (first time in 5 months). If you work *every day* on something, you don’t forget to do basic things like this which can have a big impact on your business’ credibility.

They’re working on another game, project-c, that’s why, and they don’t have the balls to admit the impact on rokh. That’s the sad part for me. At least they should own up.

Had a fun hour watching MJ play this a while ago. Wouldn’t play it myself, but it was a fun Stream team.

What about Conan and No Man’s Sky?

Reader

Conan was EA and No Man’s Sky, though not labeled, was EA until the multiplayer came out this past week.

Nah. It’s like if you said to stop donating to charity because they haven’t yet solved world poverty. Come on.

Sometimes I wonder if the advertisements shown on posts aren’t being controlled by an AI with a twisted sense of humor.

The ads I have on this one are for a Sears location having a store closing “everything must go” sale, and for Rend, soon to be another entrant in the Early Access betting pool.

I wager Rend will be a colossal flop honestly, I mean you have a Nordic theme, with vikings in a world of magic and the afterlife. But the game has no melee weapons, it’s just crossbows online. The moment I found that out, I knew it was destined for the garbage heap. :(
