This is the Police was supposed to come out today but there’s been a slight delay and it’s been pushed back a few days.
The game will now come out on 2 August and it’s all because of a simple error by the publisher Eurovideo.
The reason for the delayed release was a mistake by us here at EuroVideo. When releasing a game on Steam, you have to hit a button in Steamworks saying “ready for final approval from Steam”. Steam then proceeds to check the game, and makes sure it complies with their quality standards. Usually this approval process takes 2-5 business days, and you can not release the game without passing it.
We were responsible to hit that button and unfortunately we missed this window, as we realized it yesterday, i.e. too late for a July 28 release. We made a mistake and feel very sorry about it. Weappy has nothing to do with this – it was just a personal mistake on our side.
Again: We are really sorry about that.
It’s simply a good old administrative error but at least it’s not due to a problem with the game. The game now comes out on 2 August.
