April 28th, 2020 — Developer Maccima Games and publisher Squeaky Wheel Studio announce the Early Access launch of evil overlord simulator Ruinarch will arrive in August 2020 for PC and Mac platforms, instead of its originally scheduled May 2020 window.
“While we initially promised a release date of May 2020, we’re sad to announce that we will be pushing back release by a few months,” Maccima Games and Squeaky Wheel Studio confirmed in a joint statement. “Even though we’re pretty evil, it felt a little bit tone deaf to be releasing a game about ruining people’s lives while the world seemingly falls apart on us because of the pandemic.
“You won’t have to wait long though, because we’re only moving the launch to August, by which point hopefully the world will be on the road to recovery (so we can wreck virtual worlds guilt-free). We’ll take that extra time to add more polish and content to the game so that you’ll get a much better game upon release.”
Ruinarch will debut in August for $19.99 on Steam for PC and Mac platforms. A full release is currently planned for 2021.
