So Habu asked his friends to make it basically.
This kinda sounds as if the game will be a low effort game created to satisfy our friend ;).

I wouldn't be surprised if Survive ends up coming out in 2021, at least for us Westerners. I get the impression the development has been difficult, but I'm perfectly willing to wait so they can polish it up all nicely!

Back on the topic though, I also really want someone with an aquatic Digimon partner in this. Maybe Miu or her still unnamed brother will have one.
It better not be delayed till 2021. What makes you think development been difficult?
Now, I might be wrong here, but Survive is being developed in-house correct? A lot of the other recent games like Cyber Sleuth and Re:Digitize were developed by outside companies like Media.Vision and Tri-Crescendo. It looks like the major exception was Next Order, which was done by a group with close ties to Bandai. Maybe they don’t have as much experience as these other companies or maybe using Unity as their engine again after Next Order (which certainly caused plenty of issues with the original version of Next Order) is causing some complications and slow development. Combine that with the fact Survive is a genre that the Digimon franchise has not really touched outside of some old WonderSwan games and I can certainly see how it could lead slow development. This is all just speculation on my part obviously, but it could certainly explain the delays and slow release of news.
Can someone tell me what in house means lol.

It means Bandai Namco (the publisher) is developing the game as well. Sometimes Bandai will hire 3rd party studios to develop games for them using their intellectual properties.

I am very excited for this game, already pre-ordered it. I like the VN style they are going for and SRPG battles.

Ohh ok that makes sense now thanks for clearing that up. Same I'm pumped for it aswell I can't wait to get stuck into some cool strategy battles. Just hope we get a release date soon because it's getting annoying now.

I don't know too much about this game and I'm not sure what rating it'll have but personally I hope there's a bit of horror involved that extends beyond just potential character deaths. Would spice things up genre-wise I feel. 😈

To that end, I also wonder if they'll incorporate elements of escape room-style games where you're given a time limit in which you must solve a puzzle(s) to avoid certain death.

Overall though I would love to see them put out a fascinating story with memorable characters who actually can get you to emotionally invest in their survival.

And this goes without saying but I also hope this game does amazing and actually changes how Digimon is seen in the West.

I hope they won't make time trials in this game, or at least they will give enough time that even a monkey would be able to find a solution.

Could be nice if we would get some memorable characters, but I'm afraid we won't get any..

You have some good ideas especially the escape room one that would be cool. I'm sure there will be some horror involved. I have always thought that this will change digimon games for the better because of how it is so different. Let's hope we get everything we want in this game.

Horror? Yeah? Dokugumon and the abandoned building terrain. Cyclomon the horror mutated creature. Fangmon (Although it'd be more of childish toon horror). And judging pictures. It look like it came from the mystery horror islands filled with secret dangers you read in manga! But we still haven't explored into their "digital" world yet... Plus clicking and pointing leads to clues is part of the horror media. If it turns out it's not horror, still the beginning chapters will give you "horror-ish" vibes if that's good enough for you to enjoy. If it's not Horror enough, then what do you need to add for...?

Yeah I'm not too concerned with the specifics of how they achieve that horror atmosphere, just that it's actually there and makes the player feel some degree of fear when they're playing. It seems like this game is going for a bit more of a mature feel which I love. This might go a long way to changing the franchise from being viewed as "just for kids" into something more serious that older audiences can look into too.
