Disrupt Game not out in 2016 ( I Said it )


Original Post

In February of 2015 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.

In August of 2016 I wrote the follow up post "Still No Disrupt Game (Surprise Surprise Surprise)" Where I commented that there had been little but empty promises since the game was anounced. Seeing as we are now in 2017 I thought it would be nice to revisit it again and see if anything has happened.

My Nickel ( Pennies are discontinued )

With nothing new being said by the developers since my last post, and almost no online activity by the developers, like before I am quite sure this project is not going to come about. At this point even the games strongest defenders have backed away from commenting on the games progression.

It has now been one year since the developer's tweet promised an eventful January. As the wind blows, and the dust starts to pick up, I propose this game is nothing more then wishful whispers.

I will probably check in on this game again in the future, and see what has happened.

Until then
