Just wanted to give y'all a little status update. The download is now fixed, for anyone who's been having trouble -- I shuffled files around a few days ago on the server and forgot to repost the link. Cody has done up a bunch of nice models for the game, and I've been working on getting the engine to render 'em correctly... Right now the poor little dorf is quite discombobulated... =/
Still hoping to get a new Alpha for Monday the 29th -- but in the meantime, here are a few of the models to check out.
Also, to those who have wondered about the TGA format for textures -- the file has to be uncompressed, and use the top left corner as the origin. I usually use Gimp to do 'em, and that gives the option...

Will receive a registered copy of the game. Several versions will be made available as the work progresses through alpha, beta and release stages. First version (alpha) will be made available in early August.
Pledge $25 or moreYou selected
Same as the $10 reward -- but you will also get the warm fuzzy feeling for going above and beyond. That, and I'll give you the link to draw your own little dorfs using the template I made up (it's an image you can print out)
Pledge $50 or moreYou selected
Same as the $10 reward -- but will also receive an official Lords of Uberdark T-Shirt, featuring some sort of snazzy character artwork.
Pledge $100 or moreYou selected
Will receive (in addition to the above) a Project Notebook -- a hardback book which contains miscellaneous formulas, notes, sketches, etc -- related to the making of Lords of Uberdark and signed by the author.

Will receive (in addition to the above) a custom text statement that will be shown to the user when the game starts (ie "Dedicated to ~~~~~~"). Text will show up one tenth of the time (randomly), after the game has loaded. www addresses will not be permitted and text must not be vulgar.
Pledge $1,000 or moreYou selected
Corporate sponsorship. Will display corporate logo while the game is loading. All corporate logos will be stuffed into a single image (something like a racecar), and will be sized according to the pledge amount (more money means a larger logo). Logos must not be vulgar.

Will receive a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, knowing that you just bought me a shiny new computer. That's all.
