Dry 19

Desert eye candy Sable is being pushed back to 2020, which isn’t a massive surprise, but still. The game’s developer, Shedworks, confirmed the news this week:

“We’ve now been working on the game full time since October 2017,” said co-founder Gregorios Kythreotis. “We initially thought the game would take us around two years to develop. It was an extremely rough estimate and for us to fully realise the game we want to make, we now think we need a bit more time. It was always going to be tight getting the game out in 2019 so now we’ve made the decision to take more time with the game and aim for release in 2020.”

Not to worry (?!), the laptop will be functionally disabled before it ships, and won’t be able to connect to anything. Apparently. Definitely nothing to worry about. No sir.
