Sunday gold, an upcoming point-and-click adventure set in a dystopian future, has officially been delayed for a month. The news comes just one day before the original launch date. The new release date has been confirmed as October 13, 2022.
No official reason has been given yet. Here’s the full statement from publishers Team17:
Team17 has quickly become one of the leading masters of modern indie classics, releasing small games with huge potential such as Hokko life and the upcoming roguelike Ship of Fools. That Sunday gold delay is only a month, so it will probably involve some minor polishing after a successful demo.
Sunday gold is a new point and click game, a genre that doesn’t get quite as much love these days. It is difficult to elaborate in a creative and modern way, so it probably addresses a rather niche audience.
However, Sunday gold is developed by BKOM Studios, which is known for online, mobile and PC games with a low budget and strong IP. This includes DC, Ghostbusters, Bumblebee, Avengers and so on.
Actually, Sunday gold looks a lot more promising than any of these tie-ins, which can often feel like simple cash-grabs. Sunday gold looks like it has a lot of personality with fun music and characters.
Despite the familiar setting, players take on the role of anti-heroes aiming to bring down an evil mega-corporation with their own secrets.
It’s a decent premise and organically invites point-and-click gameplay by requiring deduction and puzzle solving. The official one product page on Steam actually compares the game’s puzzles to an escape room, and they require a lot of creativity from both the developers and the players.
Hopefully the slight delay is worth it. Fans are content to wait for a smoother experience. You can read more about Sunday gold and other upcoming indies by checking out our news section!
