I've been trying to figure out what to say for quite a long time. I guess today I've realized I probably will never come up with the perfect thing to say.
The t-shirt situation was a nightmare that I'm still dealing with to try and get a refund for. I've been working on getting new shirts printed and expect to have them soon. I have delayed posting anything because I have had no good news and I hate making excuses.
The game has been on hold for a while now because I started running into all sorts of issues with the engine and browser compatibility. I ran out of funding rather more quickly than I had anticipated, and now intend to fund the game with my own money.
I'm in a pretty decent place now, where I am making enough money to hire the help that I need to tackle this project, and expect to resume development immediately in February.
I realize all of my mistakes in not being more forthcoming, or offering full disclosure. While I proceed with development, I will open up with a project schedule on the main site, http://ronpaulroadtorevolution.com , to keep everyone in the loop.
I welcome any offers of help with development. I have had a very difficult time finding coders to assist me.
If any of you would rather receive a refund than your backer rewards, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org , and I will take care of it. This whole situation was definitely not how I intended it to be.
