Still no Disrupt Game ( Surprise Surprise Surprise )


Original Post

In February of last year I wrote a post about this "game" called Disrupt by North Rock Games. The game had been posted to steam greenlight on February 10th, 2014. and last updated on steam on March 4th, 2014.

Now the subject of the original article was how other then a few screen shots, and a little video, there has been nothing but empty promises since this game was announced.  Since over a year has past, I thought I would revisit this game, and see what has happened since.

My Two Cents

It is quite remarkable how, with very little updates, and little to prove anything is happening, there are still people out there who take the developer's side and say this is still coming out. I hope for those who are still excited for this game, that it actually gets released some time. Hopefully before the platform it's being developed on becomes obsolete.

Since the original post was only the second I posted on this blog, I feel a bit of an attachment to the out come of this game.

Unless this game actually gets released before next year, you can expect another follow post.

Until then

We Wait
