Team Saber Rider is still working on Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs game. The 2D shoot ’em up platformer has been delayed from its original Q3 2017 launch date and will likely release in 2018. During the long wait time, the dev team shipped out a new screenshot showing Dinosaur Planet.
The last piece of information on Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs was back in August. Given the long time of silence, both supporters on Steam Greenlight and those who backed the game on Kickstarter deserve word on progress.
Well, the latest form of progress that has come around near the end of 2017 pertaining to Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs comes in the form of a screenshot, showing the world known as Dinosaur Planet.

The game in question is based on the animated TV series, where the announcement by the dev team built up enough excitement insofar that it passed both Greenlight and Kickstarter with ease. As a matter of fact so much attention was brought to it that even Nintendo approved of a Switch release for the indie game in development.
Seeing that the team is going through some stuff with moving and trying to fix up the game, hopefully the promised new updates will come soon:
Many weeks of dark age are over! #internet is finally working!!! Living in a rural part is not always good. Mobile connection is very bad and no Internet cafe's around. I really wonder how people can live like this. Many updates are waiting and then back to work @SaberRiderGame

yeah that was not planned like this, sorry. I had to move, my wife is pregnant. The internet at the new place was supposed to be working almost 2 month ago but did not until yesterday. Also its a rural location with very bad mobile connection. 56k modem style! Next city 15km.
