Strong Bad delayed to July 05 Jun, 2008, 21:58 / 8 comments

Kotaku had a lunch date with Mike and Matt Chapman, where it was learned that the premiere of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People would not launch this month as originally announced, but rather will be available next month. To quote Kotaku's quote of the Brothers Chapman:
The game is actually now getting pushed back to July, but the game is going to just be much better for it. It's just development time.
This is pretty sad news (and as far as I know Telltale's first delay ever, unless it's Nintendo's doing), but the postponement is short, and it's far better for this to happen at the beginning of the series than the alternative.

Update: On a more positive note, Telltale will be appearing on Gamespot's live web show "On the Spot" at 4:00 P.M. Pacific time, or about 45 minutes from now. Representing the company will be Emily (Telltale's version of Ronda Scott) and producer Brett Tosti. Telltale promises new stuff from the game to be showcased, so do check it out. (And if you miss it it'll surely be archived somewhere around here later.)

    That's for the best. Too much stuff to play right now and almost no time to do that! :-P
    I still have to beat the Penny Arcade game...

    hmm... didn't know they had a release date at such short notice...

    It was previously just "June."

    I guess they need to tighten up the graphics on level 3.

    To be fair, Telltale never actually said for certain that it was coming out in June. They hadn't announced a proper official date because they weren't sure - obviously now we now why. I don't mind waiting until July. More Lego Indy and Okami Wii time!

    (I kinda wish we'd never even said June in the first place.)

    But yeah, this is why we've been vague about the release date. Once the season gets going we want to make sure we stay on schedule, and starting before we were ready to start would have put us in a pretty weak position to do that...

    At this point I'm just gonna assume more people know Emily than Rhonda. (May her soul rest in peace.)
