Dungeon Crawl Classic RPG is Delayed to February 2012

Yep, DCC RPG is delayed until early winter of next year (Feb '12).  I'm neither surprised nor disappointed.  When it comes to computer RPGs / MMORPGs, they are never released on time.  Well, at least not the successful ones.  Why?  Because they go through many layers of beta testing, which leads to rewrites and more beta testing, but even more importantly, a more solid game.

So, I applaud Joseph Goodman for taking the play test / beta test feedback to heart and tweaking the game to make it better.  I'd rather wait 3 extra months for a tighter product then get something that isn't quite ready for prime time.

Besides, I'm still waiting on lots of RPG goodies I preordered to ship - Xplorers Boxed Set, Delving Deeper, Tome of Horrors Complete... not including the Kickstarter Projects I joined.

I'm much better at waiting now that I'm older ;)


  1. Yo, what's up, T? Hey, just read this on the GG forums meself. I think it's a good move, and it makes me think that they're actually listening to the beta test feedback. If that's true, then that makes me feel much better about GG and DCC.

    I have to admit, I'm getting curious again about DCC, and perhaps rethinking some of my initial skepticism toward the game. If they listen to the beta testing and actually take it to heart, I may become a true believer. But they have some big fixes to make, IMHO. For example, one of my biggest gripes from the beta is the use of percentiles for thief skills. Seriously? Of all things they hold over from D&D, THAT'S the one they pick?! Come on guys, stick with the unified mechanic thing!

    Anyway, I think we'll all survive the wait. Why? Because of all the other games out there we're all fawning over! We have plenty to occupy our time. ;-)

  2. Heh!

    Yes, we do have a lot of stuff to faun over. I'm about to get my second wind of Adventurer Conqueror King... expect to see some posts in the near future ;)

  3. I'm OK, I really am concerned with some parts of DCC and I want to see how those are handled, I can wait...:)
