Developer KO_OP has announced the delay of Goodbye Volcano High. The game was originally supposed to be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC (Steam) this year, but it’ll only be available for those systems in 2022. No specific date or general season window for the game has been announced yet as the team wants to make sure the intended experience will be ready on release.
Goodbye Volcano High is a narrative adventure game that was announced in the PS5 event The Future of Gaming. It tells the story of a group of dinosaurs in the final year of high school. However, not only is graduation coming, but also a real end of an era. In this turbulent period, the group of young dinos will have the chance to learn more about themselves and even make new friends.
The developers mention that the current pandemic situation as well as the fact they had to completely reboot the game’s narrative last year were the main factors that delayed production and forced them to make this decision. The writing team was changed back then and they had an interview on this process. With everything said, the company expects the game to be a really emotional tale about endings and farewells as well as joy and love.
Keeping in mind the team’s mental and physical health, the delay should help them avoid making the development stressful. More updates on Goodbye Volcano High, mostly highlighting the development process, are expected in the coming months.
