Moody Xbox One adventure game 'Below' gets delayed indefinitely

Below, a unique upcoming adventure title for Xbox One and PC, has been delayed indefinitely. While Below was originally intended for release this summer, developer Capybara Games explained that the title isn't quite ready for primetime, and the studio will provide another update when it has a firm release date in mind.

From Capybara Games:

We did a lot of soul searching. We knew we wanted to get it into your hands as soon as possible. We knew the game was there, and we're super proud of it, but we also knew it needed more time to make sure it lives up to our studio's standards, and the quality that you expect from our games. From the very beginning, BELOW has been our most ambitious undertaking, and we're just not quite done excavating its depths, or polishing all of its facets.Instead of giving you a new, loose release window, we will be going dark while we take the time that we need to complete BELOW without compromise. The next time you see a major BELOW update, that means our game has a firm release date, which we'll share.

If you're unfamiliar with Below, the game features a unique top-down perspective on its dark world and is meant to be as difficult as it is visually appealing. Players will have to explore and survive as a warrior on an island while the threat of permanent death always looms.

You can get a short look at the game, including a bit of its engrossing soundtrack, below.
