The Spiral Scouts will be delayed until July 12, 2018, and a new HuniePop 2 character has been revealed by the developer of both games in a video on YouTube.
Originally, The Spiral Scouts was all set to release on May 31, 2018. Unfortunately, the developer has stated that their focus on the actual development of the game led to some of the "important business stuff" being neglected. It seems that these business issues will take some time to get sorted, so the release date for The Spiral Scouts has been pushed back until July 12, 2018. Have a look at the Spiral Scouts Update (+Hunie News) video to see all of the details for yourself:
As a bit of a consolation for the delay, the developer has released some additional details about The Spiral Scouts along with a new character reveal for HuniePop 2.
The Spiral Scouts will be launching on both Steam and the Humble Store for PC & Mac. While those are the only platforms planned for the initial launch of the game, the developer has said that he's quite happy to bring it to other platforms if the interest is there. Controller support will include the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 controllers; of course, players can elect to make use of the keyboard if that's how they want to play. The game will take 6-10 hours to complete based on how quickly you can solve the puzzles and how invested you are in getting all of the badges. Finally, The Spiral Scouts will be launching at a price point of $9.99 or your regional equivalent.
Towards the end of the video, we got a reveal for a brand new character for HuniePop 2: Denise "Zoey" Greene.
Zoey is a "little spacey" and she "might have a few screws loose". Having grown out of a cyborg phase, she's since moved on to witchcraft, crystals, and mystical arts. Zoey's bust was specifically designed to be on the smaller end of the scale to fulfill a promise made to the "flat justice" fans, a loose coalition of people who have a certain preference for smaller breasts.
Hunie Pop 2 can be expected sometime later this year. As for The Spiral Scouts, you'll be able to get your hands on it on July 12, 2018, for the PC & Mac at the price $9.99 or your regional equivalent.
