Gorky 17 Delayed
9:41 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Epic Interactive has informed us that their Mac OS port of the isometric RPG Gorky 17 will be delayed until March 2001. This delay was caused by a recent accident involving the main programmer behind the Mac port of the game.

Here is Epic's Thomas Steidling on the delay:

Gorky 17 is delayed for at least 2-3 months, because the programmer suffered
a serious motorcycle accident about 3 months ago and was unable to report to
us. A new programming team is now found and working on the game, but it is
obvious, that the game won´t be ready before march 2001.
We have not been informed that their other games, such as Earth 2140 have been affected by any delays. Obviously this is a tragic situation; our thanks to Epic for moving forward with the game, and our condolences to the programmer who was injured.

For more details on Gorky 17, revisit our article on Epic's lineup.
