“If we want this to work in the long term and hiring, we need to simplify things. It all works behind the scenes, and while that means spending time away from the game, it will make it easier for us now and in the future to develop the game better,” adds Enersloth. “We want to do more for you to show you how grateful we are, but without sacrificing the quality and values we had before this explosion.” It is clear that the small team is now heading to work on new content for the game and make sure to transfer it to new platforms in the near future.
As for what will happen now that a lot of this work has been done, Innersloth says it will soon release a 2021 roadmap. The developer notes that he was hoping to release the game’s planned “accounts” system earlier, but the first update focusing on moderation is coming sooner. Possible time, which will build the basis for this update. In the end, Innersloth “wanted to make sure it wasn’t half cooked before implementation. (Trust me – you don’t want a bad reporting system without accountability behind it.”
