Two Tribes co-founder explains why Toki Tori 2 was delayed

Two Tribes co-founder Collin van Ginkel explained in a recent post that puzzle platformer Toki Tori 2 was delayed into 2013 to make improvements and additions to the game's puzzles and overall structure.

Toki Tori 2 was originally scheduled to release in mid-December of last year for Steam and Wii U. Van Ginkel wrote that two days before the game was due to Nintendo, he had a realization.

"Why were we so focused on getting the game out before Christmas?" van Ginkel wrote. "Why in the world would we put so much pressure on ourselves, when we do not have a publisher or investor pushing us?"

According to van Ginkel, before the team could send the game off "and feel good about it," they needed to move into more open puzzle design, improve the game's graphics and test more thoroughly.

"So since the delay we've had day-long play sessions with several people, providing us with a massive amount of feedback on how the game flows from start to finish," van Ginkel wrote. "We're taking our time to ensure everyone will have a great experience, which is what we should have been doing all along."
