We Are The Caretakers Update

Hi everyone,

As I’m sure you can understand, 2020 has thrown a wrench into our best-laid game dev plans. While we feel fortunate to have already been working remotely, the challenges of this year affected our work routines, event & release plans, and overall productivity in significant ways. Many of us are juggling childcare at home alongside our work, and handling many other personal and professional difficulties. Plus, it’s important to us that we don’t crunch just to meet a deadline, or rush the game out and sacrifice quality.

All of this means that although we’re continuing to make great progress on the game, we decided to target a new release date for We Are The Caretakers. We’re expecting that to be in the first half of 2021, and we’ll share a more exact timeline once we’re ready to commit to one.

We’ve learned from our past mistakes and want to be ready as a team for the updates, console versions, and community building long into the future, not just on launch day. All that said, We Are The Caretakers is shaping up wonderfully, we’re having fun playing it, and we’re excited to share it with you when it’s ready!

I’m always available in the official We Are The Caretakers Discord if you have any questions about the change. And if you haven’t already, we hope you’ll wishlist the game on Steam so you can be notified the moment the game releases.

Thanks a lot for understanding!
