Mighty No. 9 Trial Version Delayed Indefinitely (Updated)
You know that Mighty No. 9 demo that was supposed to launch today? The very thing to compensate the full game's 2016 delay? Yeah; that's been delayed too.
Although a few backers got it early, the demo is no longer planned to launch for everyone else today. Comcept says "some issues popped up regarding the distribution method so there is a good chance it will not be ready to launch by the 15th." They're "really sorry for the inconvenience." A new release date was not announced.
Folks, Comcept is about as transparent as Vaseline. If it wasn't enough they told backers about the full game's delay weeks after retailers, they waited until the day of the demo's launch to tell you it's been delayed. And the little cherry on top? The announcement was slipped on to the end of an unrelated post about a contest. You can be better than this, Comcept.
Readers and backers alike, I am sorry you're being subjugated to this ongoing cycle. Try to hang in there. You'll get your money's worth one of these days.
UPDATE (9/18) - Comcept sent out a couple additional details in the latest backer e-mail. The tl;dr version, unexpected complications distributing through Steam arose. They're looking at alternate distribution methods, such as Humble Bundle. Comcept is also working on making the demo DRM free with no time restrictions. Because of all of this, ETA of the demo remains unknown.
