I know that I have said that we are close so many times I don't even want to say it any more. We are still close, but we are also still working. I want all of you to understand first that I appreciate your patience, and not to make excuses, but to explain to all of you the reality of our situation so that you will hopefully understand this is not something we are taking lightly.
I love designing this game, it's been and continues to be some of the most fun I have had in my 25+ year career as a serial entrepreneur and creative/designer. But the fact is that we are just a handful of people, all of whom also have day jobs that we have to keep to pay the bills, with the exception of me, who is the only person who works on this all day every day, practically 70 hours a week. Unfortunately, I'm a game designer, but not the developer on this project, this game's code is way over my head, and right now our devs are working hard in their available time on what is an incredibly major change to both the client and the server side of the game engine. This update is essentially a major overhaul of how the game works and interacts with the player and the server.
We are focused right now on this release, and I hope it will be ready in the next week or so, but if in a week it isn't ready, we will keep working. In the mean time, I am creating new content and releasing it as scheduled. Including my new 6 part "Walking Dead" tribute, which will drop this weekend.
Please be patient, we are not Rovio, we are not PopCap, we are a very small outfit running on a shoestring budget and borrowed time. Our hope is that after this release we will be 97% code complete, and other than a few incidental updates we will be ready to start really focusing on new content and world building for players.
Thank you for your patience,
