A new developer letter got posted on the game’s Steam page, about release date and the company’s current focus.

Official Developer Post
From GM Jeff:
Hello Chasers, this is the KurtzPel Team.We would like to thank each and every one of you for following KurtzPel.We have notified everyone that KurtzPel’s early access will be launching in the 1st Quarter of 2019 on Steam and through our Livestream.
However, as you may have already guessed, we will have to delay the launch date by a little longer.We originally planned to fix major bugs from CBT and release Early Access sometime in March, but once we received everyone’s feedback, we realized that we had more work to do than we initially anticipated.We are currently polishing the good and removing the bad from KurtzPel while adding new functions in the game based on your feedback.There will also be some features that won’t make it to the Early Access version but we will be sure to keep everyone looped in on the development progress and possible target launch dates.Even though we cannot give you an exact date of the Early Access, we promise to release KurtzPel in the first half of Q2 and will be sharing more details on the early access, such as exact date, price model, and regions, in the near future.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience and would like to thank everyone for showing their support for KurtzPel.

– KurtzPel Team

The Early Q2 delay was said a few streams ago, so it’s not a huge surprise. If we get to play a better version of KurtzPel, it’s all worth the wait. Check out last night’s stream recap here: Update Stream #4 Notes 3/28/2019
