They say nothing in the comments.

We already know of Vespertino and the tweet is very obscure, so my guess is that it hints at something altogether different.


Of course, I have no evidence whatsoever.

@norecess the "natives" (and that includes myself) are getting restless - any word? :)

I feel like playing a good racer these days, to the point of hooking up my Dreamcast and the Suzuki collection...

Regarding the recent controversy on the name of this game, I want to add, that my personal reception of the name is, that I find it very inspiring, and definitely more inspiring than any other racing game name that I currently know of.

To be honest: most racing game names are very dull, may be to make it 100 percent clear that the intention of the game is to race, or perhaps because it is assumed that their clientele are of a rather plain mind.

Just my 2 cents to help a little to insist on the name.

I thought the game was about a nice sunday afternoon drive through the country, 10mph under the speed limit, annoying all the drivers behind you who can't get past due to a combination of double white lines, curves, and oncoming traffic. You lose points for every car you let overtake, you gain points for rage crashes behind you.

Brilliant! I love that idea! :D


Also the soundtrack will have Sunny Afternoon by the Kinks (simply by association), followed by Waterloo Sunset with a sun setting in the background (of course!)
The final screen will show a car dump full of rage crashes with a banknote as counter for the final score + the proprietor of said car dump jumps for joy to the height of the score.


I hope Rhino is in the mood for some last-minute changes to Vespertino. ;)

@Rhino

"You might want to stockpile some groceries this year, a massive bat-quake will soon rock the retro scene. Stay tuned!"

Did stockpiled some stuff as Putin wants to nuke everything in order for this codeporn never to get a released.
So dear Rhino speed up as the final countdown has started.

What Marco Antonio actually says is that Vespertino will be on hold because of OTHER projects they need to finish, then they'll continue with the game. So, nothing to see here.

Or "we are currently trying to develop the hardware figure a way to fit demoscene-oriented effects to games that require more than a single sprite on screen and some basic AI". ;D :P

It has already been 3 years since the first and last news.
It would be nice if some time in the future we would see a release.
But seeing that tweet I'm not optimistic anymore.

eto

But the good part of it is: there is something else coming - that's why they are pausing Vespertino development to concentrate on this :-)

I can imagine that nobody has missed that two years gone with the covid.
So, the delay can be "excused" for any games that were in development prior to this.

There's no indication that whatever is coming will be a CPC release. They did ZX Spectrum and Amiga stuff as well.

Yes, as they said "the project for Amstrad CPC" I guess the other project is for another system.

Too bad, I would actually like *any* news about the actual progress.. assuming anything has been done since the last update. 

TotO

Anyway, nobody has to justify about what they do on the spare time and when/how it will be released or not on any systems.

Plus, they delivered Pinball Dreams which was awesome beyond any expectation, so I'm in no rush to get Vespertino.

Let them do it right.

Gryzor

Quite right. I mean, "ahhh too bad", but "thanks anyhow, I'll gladly wait for it".
