If you haven't seen it already, DELUGE is coming to Steam on November 30!
Click here to check out the page and wishlist the game - it really helps me out!

The game was originally planned for release on November 22, but unfortunately there was some confusion on my end regarding release dates on the platform. The game IS already available now on Itch.io, but I hope you'll consider picking up the Steam edition when it releases! It looks really cool in a Steam library!

To coincide with the new release date, I'm working on an update to the game (which will be available on Itch.io too for all previous purchasers) to address some of the bugs and smaller issues I've seen in the past few weeks. And of course, while I'm at it, I'll also be adding some additional content, balancing and new secrets!

Earlier last week I also announced a few contests that I haven't quite clarified details for, so I'd like to provide some more concrete details and make some corrections to the specifications. I got really excited to announce these ideas, but I glanced over a couple of things that I think will be easier to understand when written down!

CONTENT CREATION RAFFLE: In order to continue spreading the word about DELUGE, I'm inviting players of the game to share content to try and win some free gear -t-shirts and hoodies to be specific! Share clips on social media, stream the game on Twitch, post YouTube videos, create fan art - all types of content is welcome! Each piece of content tagging myself or #delugegame nets you an entry! The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2021. Names will be pulled in early January on stream. Feel free to post in the #deluge-general channel on my Discord if you have any questions, and to share your stuff!

SPEED RUN CONTEST: Following the release of the updated game on Steam, I'm hosting a SPEEDRUN competition! I'd like to see how quickly we can complete the game - and discover exploits and the most efficient route possibilities. I will be providing tips and other info starting next week for all interested parties! Recordings can be shared via Twitch (highlight) or from YouTube! The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2021.

TWITCH PLAYS DELUGE 2: When the game was released on Itch.io on Halloween, my Twitch channel transformed into a playable version of Deluge that my community could play "together" by spamming button inputs in the chat. This was developed by my amazing friend ManDeJan, and we're going to do it again to celebrate the Steam release! This will happen a week from today - November 29, 2021 and will run for as long as I can manage it. I implore you join us at twitch.tv/Riggy2k3 anytime during the event to give it a go!

Lastly... I just want to say thank you!

The support for the game has been overwhelming and I'm so excited for it to reach a larger audience with the help of the Steam release! DELUGE has been a labor of love and a project I've wanted to make for a very long time, so to see it receive the attention it has thus far has been so wonderful for me. My community has gone above and beyond to support me, but I'm so honored to also share it with some of my favorite RPG Maker 2003 developers, YouTube gamers and content creators. I don't know what comes after DELUGE, but I guarantee it'll be tough to top the feelings I've felt releasing this project.
