The Lord of the Rings: Gollum didn’t have the desired impact on last week’s release, and the reviews certainly didn’t dismiss them. The game was released with many bugs and, more seriously, flaws in the adventure’s design that made critics and users alike turn their noses up. This weekend, an apology letter arrived from Nacon and Daedalic, even confirming the development team’s disappointment with the state of affairs.
The problems of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum –
“We would like to sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience so many of you had with The Lord of Ring: Gollum post-release,” the apology letter reads. The fact that the first line of the letter contains such an obvious typo in the name of the game itself (which would be The Lord of the Rings: Gollum) has already sparked facepalm and easy irony on the net, with many wondering – while there are rumors of a second chapter on the way – the ability of a team that can’t even properly write the name of its own game to straighten the course for this title, as it has for all sequels. “We deeply acknowledge and deeply regret that the game did not live up to the expectations we had set for ourselves or those of our passionate community. Our sincere apologies for any disappointment this has caused.”

The apology letter —
“Our goal as a studio, and as fans of The Lord of the Rings, has always been to tell an intriguing and captivating story-driven adventure,” the statement reads. “Creating a story with Middle-earth as our playground has been a huge honor – and the biggest challenge we’ve encountered to date. At Daedalic, we understand that the success of a game depends on the enjoyment and satisfaction of its users. We value your feedback and actively listen to your voice, read your comments and analyze the constructive criticism and advice you have provided. Our development team has been working hard to fix bugs and technical issues that many of you have encountered. We are doing everything we can to provide you with patches that allow you to enjoy the game to the fullest.” No date, nor expected content for these patches, but there will certainly be a lot of work.
