    I disagree. I used to play a racing simulator developed by 3 people, and they gave us the "when its done" routine. What came of that? Still waiting into 2014 for a patch due to be released in 2008. The only recently started work on it, because they couldn't live off the money unsuspecting people paid them for a dead game. (Re: they spent all our money, so they're "rushing" to make the next release)

    Seriously, it has been nearly 21 months since TPA was first released on iOS. An extra day or three for the Steam release is not going to kill anyone at this point. So please, everyone remain calm. The sun will still rise tomorrow if TPA isn't released on Steam today.
    Exactly! Not to mention it's been 14 months since Xbox 360 TPA players saw any of the DLC iOS and Android users were getting, and the constant delays WiiU owners have faced. When the PC version was greenlit seven (yes, seven!) months ago, it was welcome news for fans burned by console inactivity-yet Xbox live and WiiU are still prominently displayed on TPA's facebook page as "available". Then the Steam release date was revealed as today-and we find out at literally the 11th hour and 59th minute that it will not be released this week.

    To be blunt, I'd be more worried if people were not venting right now.

    I got the pricing fixed, but our Steam rep is in Europe (I still don't understand why), so they stopped responding to my emails about 4 hours ago. I don't have a new date or time from them yet.

    Sorry about the delays. I'm quite angry myself.

    That's a bummer. Hope if gets sorted out before the facebook crowd pops veins in their head.

    No worries Mike, you've done all you could and a few days' wait isn't going to kill us... Would there be any chance for re-activating the beta for the weekend (with the newest build)? That would give the testers a few more hours to find more bugs

    That sucks Mike. Hopefully you can either get in touch with someone from the US (how they don't have someone contactable especially for your launch, I don't know). Hope it all comes through quicker than the "next week" statement on FB, for your sakes as much as ours

    That would require steams help, and then cause more issues with getting released later...so I'd rather not ask.

    I know how disappointing it is when a game gets delayed.

    The good news (I guess) is that all the issues they told me about this morning are fixed.

    I thought about trying to contact a US rep (if I could find one), but then was afraid that the rep in Europe might take offence and that might cause issues.

    Fair enough, we'd better not cause any more issues... I know just the feeling when trouble keeps popping up - so annoying, especially when it's out of your hands. Thanks for being so upfront and open about the issues. We fans are excited, but I'm sure we can be patient for just a while longer! I myself am playing the Android version to tide me over

    To Mike and everyone on the FarSight team.

    Sorry for the trouble you're going through. I'm eagerly awaiting the Steam version, and must admit I've felt a little frustrated as a result of the waiting, but that's just a tiny piece of dust compared to the tornado you're dealing with. Thanks again for all the immeasurable effort you're putting into the PC release!

    Have a great weekend! :-)

    4 hours ago? so around 5-6pm, the normal end of office hours. However I find it stupid that steam releases games based on US timezones, yet have European reps, they need to get their **** together.

    The Euro rep is already probably down the pub (or Cafe bar), so I would head off there as well if I were you and sink a few pints (or 550ml jars).

    I'm kind of glad for the extra few days of anticipation. At least I can still be optimistic that my crappy new computer will run this game well. I've already factored in disappointment that my computer is not powerful enough for the Steam release and now I won't have to deal with the disappointment for another few days.
    If you are not playing "The Pinball Arcade", you aint' playing real pinball!

    First, tell Mike who the American rep is. I think Valve does all the banking operations in Europe.

    I knew some devious European would be behind this. He's probably lurking here, reading our anguished messages while twirling his mustaches.

    I don't think I've ever seen Steam release a game on Saturday or Sunday. Who knows, maybe they would in this special case since things got botched at the last minute, but I wouldn't hold your breath.
