I am thrilled to announce that There's Always a Madman: Fight or Flight has passed Valve's certification checks and can be considered to have "gone gold" roughly two months ahead of its release on Friday March 22, 2024 (for reference, "going gold" generally means when a game starts being physically printed onto discs, which typically happens about a month before the release date. There's Always a Madman: Fight or Flight will be a digital-only release, so I am considering the point at which the storefront approves a build of the game to be my "going gold" point).
In addition, the instrumental title track for There's Always a Madman: Fight or Flight will go on sale the same day as the game - Friday March 22, 2024. You can wishlist the soundtrack on this page which just launched: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2415260/Theres_Always_a_Madman_Fight_or_Flight_Soundtrack
There will also be a Deluxe Edition where you can pick up the game and the soundtrack together. Please note that the soundtrack is limited to the one track mentioned above - the game of course has many more tracks than that, but this is the only one I have the ability to sell due to licensing agreements for the other tracks.
So what are you working on for the next two months if the game has already gone gold?
Although a build of the game has been approved, there are still plenty of things left to do, including but not limited to:
- Prototyping achievements
- Playtesting the game
- Fixing bugs identified through playtesting
- Marketing tasks leading up to launch
I hope you pick up There's Always a Madman: Fight or Flight - either the base version or the Deluxe Edition - when the game releases on Friday March 22, 2024.
