Screaming Villains' Tyler Hogle gave insight into the delayed Xbox One and European PlayStation 4 releases:

Xbox: "I hired a developer to work on the Xbox version for me so I could handle Vita. After a few months, that person had to back out. Didn't complete any of the work."

PS4 (Europe): "To get the game rated by PEGI, you must submit an application via email and then you are given login info to their site so you can submit everything to get your game rated. My application went in their spam folder along with several other emails checking the status, and they didn't notice it until about 6 months later. I wish I was making that up."

"By the time all of this stuff had happened, Switch somehow became a definite thing. It didn't make sense for PS4 to have a release date, Europe have a different release date, Xbox have a different one, Switch have a different one etc. so if everything goes to plan then Xbox and Europe will be released at the same time as Switch. That's what happened. When I said "I have no control over stuff" I meant it. I couldn't explain all of this because it would've blown my cover on the Switch version which I couldn't announce yet."

Deleted Scenes and Survivor Mode Announced!

Night Trap developer Tyler Hogle (Screaming Villains) did a podcast with SegaBits and revealed a game mode called SURVIVOR MODE (listen below at 21:45). In Survivor Mode you compete with the global leaderboards to catch random augers.

"It works in rounds. For each round you'll have augs that appear randomly throughout the house," said Hogle. "At the start of each round, there's a color code change. You need to switch the code color and catch all the augs" to move on to the next round. Check out the entire interview below:

Hogle also announced that DELETED SCENES will be added back into the game, including the scene where the player has the option to trap Commander Simms in the living room. Stay tuned!
