Republic Complete

Confirming the report that Republic: the Revolution was complete, but that Elixir's insurgency strategy game would not be available until September (story), RepRev has a story up with a quote from Elixir's Demis Hassabis confirming that they have submitted a gold master candidate to Eidos in six languages. The game is not yet officially gold, but even were it already declared approved for manufacture, Demis confirms the game is indeed not going to be available before September, "to ensure a simultaneous worldwide release."

Actually the chances are that the US release is what is delaying things... <shock horror>

Although most American development houses would disagree with me, it is MORE than possible to achieve your localisation within the deadlines for the game code itself. I know whereof I speak because I've DONE it.

However it takes roughly twice as long to get a game to market in the US because of delays and bullshit in retail.

Oh, since we're talking politics... I think it's a shame we gave Sadman Hussein long enough to move his pre-prepared stockpiles to Syria. I remain convinced that the right thing was done - it remains to be seen whether it's been done in the right way. I have high hopes, however...
