You may recall that Luc Bernard’s intriguing iPhone action adventure SteamPirates was pencilled in for launch some time during this month. Sadly the Anglo-French developer has been in touch to let us know that the title has hit a slight bump in the road and will unfortunately be delayed.
According to Bernard, his team at Oyaji Games are unhappy with the current battle system and are hard at work retooling it to make it more enjoyable and less complex.
SteamPirates is shaping up to be one of 2010’s most promising iPhone games and any setback is obviously going to come as a disappointment but so long as the end result meets the high expectations, most fans won’t grumble too much.
Sadly, with Oyaji being a relatively small developer, this hold-up has had a knock-on effect on the company’s other titles, including the PSP Minis releases Mecho Wars and Mecho Tales.
Still, good things come to those who wait and all that.
