Default one percent of the game left?

Whats up with this? Earlier you guys said Ritual has been working on the product for about a year, yet the last 1 percent has taken over a month? It would be nice to have a new game to play during the summer while I have plenty of free time.

The last part in almost everything (sports, gaming... making games) is always the hardest [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Penny Arcade's article entitled "Crunch Mode" is a good read on what's been going down at Ritual this past month.

You know its like most game installers. They put all the itty bitty small stuff at the end so the last 5 hours is spent on 99%. Or is that just me?

Just look at your installer next time. It seems to stay on 99% for longer than it should [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

You watch the install bar on RC2, and your eyes dart back and forth from the install bar to the clock on the wall. Time is running out and you still have a huge pass to run and the RTM is almost a heart beat away. Tension in your team is very high. You've had very little sleep and your diet has mainly consisted of Pizza, Soda and candy from the Vending machine. Once it's installed you start your pass. Everything seems to be running smoothly, then, 20 minutes into it, you hear that one of the other testers finds a show stopper. The bug can be reproduced 100% of the time. RC2 gets the "FAIL" stamp.
That lucky bastard at least had a vending machine!!!!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
