Orbital Speed Studio announced today that its latest project Dual Gear is getting a small delay. The game was originally scheduled to release in April 2017, but low funding via Indiegogo for the title has been one of the culprits of the delay in addition to the developers taking alpha players feedback and working on improving the pain points. The funding campaign for Dual Gear only reached half of its campaign goal of $60,000.
Dual Gear is a turn based strategy game that allows players to command huge mechs in third person combat. The game will also allow players to customize their mechs to fit their playstyle. Currently there are no plans for multiplayer, which is a little disappointing because this looks like it could have been incredibly fun against friends or random players via matchmaking. The multiplayer mode would have been included had the full $60,000 campaign goal had been met. Hopefully the developers still include this mode despite not hitting their funding goals.
If this is your first time hearing about Dual Gear, here is a brief description of the game:
