Ogre 6e Status Report: 2012

I haven't done a good enough job recently of communicating the status of Ogre 6th Edition. The status is: Still planned, still the super-fancy as per the prototypes you can see on that page (and which I expect will show up in the display case at PAX in a couple of weeks) . . .

And definitely still not on track for 2011. I warned everyone in May that it might not happen in 2011, and now I can say it definitely won't. I knew that at the end of June, before I took July off, and I should have shared.

There's no sophisticated marketing reason (and, for that matter, no sinister financial reason) for the delay. It's just "not enough hours in Steve's day." Ogre takes a certain amount of concentration and "getting into state" to do right. It's fun, but it's a lot more demanding fun than, say, making up Munchkin curses.

I continue to get more mail about this than any other upcoming project (definitely more than for any single Munchkin projects, probably more than for any two). I know you want it; I want to do it . . . it's just going to take more work.

I thought I had seen something about 1/15 or around that time. Now that isn't looking likely.

Here's just saying that I don't care when it's done. I'll buy it in a jiffy when it comes.

We're aiming for this year. Once the game has gone to print we'll be able to announce a date, but until then all I can report is that Steve's working on the game around other projects.

Thanks Philip. Do you think you could at least narrow it down to a quarter? Don't worry if you can't, I can understand not wanting to set an expectation then failing to meet it.

I really wish I could. The best I can say for now is that we have our Top Men working on it. Top. Men.

I don't believe I've ever seen the phrase 'in a jiffy' outside of novels before.

Your meaning is clear though. I wish I had such patience.

Right. Spot.

Then you'll be happy to know that twice last week we reviewed Ogre materials . . . and that Steve's next project is Ogre. As he mentioned yesterday: http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2012-03-06

I am not experienced enough to provide a direct link to the relevant post, but Philip stated in another thread that they were hoping for 4th quarter 2012. (Christmas would be AWESOME! My son Henry is 9 and the right age for this... if the project is delayed another year or two, he'll never get the same reaction!)

But you could tell us where it is, so that we can take a look at it.

We're still shooting for on shelves before the end of the year . . . and it's looking like we'll make it.
