Get Ready to Get Scared
Release dates get switched around all the time. Often a particularly ambitious game will face numerous delays as the developers work hard to make sure that the finished product is as smooth and polished as possible on release day, instead of releasing a game filled with bugs.
Remothered: Broken Porcelain, however, is taking the opposite approach, releasing one week ahead of the previously scheduled release date of October 20th – and for a reason that horror fans and gamers will all be able to appreciate.
“This is an incredibly busy month for games, particularly horror games,” said Shane Bierwith, EVP of global marketing at Modus. “While moving dates forward isn’t common, we’d like to allow horror fans to get their hands on Broken Porcelain early so players can have more time to experience all the great games releasing around Halloween.”
Given that October sees the release of both The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope (October 30th) and Amnesia: Rebirth (Which shared Remothered’s previous release date of October 20th) there’s definitely some big horror games releasing in October, and moving the release date forward means that Remothered isn’t competing for sales as directly as it would have on the original release date. Horror games can feel like a small world, with only a handful of major franchises compared to some other genres, and the Remothered series is less known than either Amnesia or The Dark Pictures, so moving the date forward as opposed to pushing it back means that it isn’t released on the shadow of the other games, either – and given the fact that what we’ve seen of the game so far looks terrifying, it definitely deserves to stand on its own.
