Chicken Wiggle Workshop unlikely to release this year

Atooi provided a status update on Chicken Wiggle Workshop yesterday, noting that the platformer is unlikely to hit Switch this year. It’s now shaping up to be a 2020 game instead.

Atooi apologized in a Kickstarter delay, explaining that the team is small and the scope of the project has changed. Stretch goals are now being implemented into the initial development “to better suit our fans and the overall game experience.”

The full update reads:

We originally expected Chicken Wiggle Workshop to be completed by now, hence our original expected date. As we started to put things together, we quickly realized that just a new paint job on wiggle wasn’t the right approach to this game.

We decided to expand the scope of the project by including the planned stretch goals into development to better suit our fans and the overall game experience. In doing so the project is taking longer than expected and we stumbled into some developmental issues, which pushed back the launch window.

Please understand we are a very small team. We never want to let any of you down. We failed in meeting your expectations and we are very sorry and hope you can understand we’re doing our best.

We don’t know exactly how much more time it will take other than this game won’t likely hit the 2019 release window we hoped for. We don’t want to put any more undue expectations on anyone and as soon as we have news on an exact release date we will let you know.

We apologize for the radio silence, however we thought it wasn’t good to keep saying “We have no new news at this time.” But perhaps that might have been better than saying nothing at all. Moving forward the game plan is to try to work on more frequent updates even if it is bad news.

We understand a delay is never what anyone wants to hear but we ask that you weather the storm with us just a bit longer. We also know a rushed game is a bad game and we feel everyone deserves our very best.
