I have started getting emails from people asking how the project is coming along. The short answer is: slowly!
The artist's wife has been in and out of the hospital and so unfortunately the art is been on the back burner. The card art is almost all complete and I will be posting it on Green Haven Games when it is done. You're going to love it.
There is quite a long process becoming an officially recognized apple developer. Because the process of creating and getting approved is so long and technical, I have decided to create a simple children's app to make sure that I understand Apple's complete development cycle. Then, when I push Dam It through the channels I won't be surprised. This will take a couple of months to do completely, but it will result in a more polished version of Dam It because I will have learned some lessons and know what the end looks like. There is only one way through the gauntlet and I want to come out a winner!
Remember the old Ketchup commercial - "Good things come to those that wait."
thanks guys, you're all great!
Thanks everyone for your support in pledging on this project!
We have a process ahead of us as we make this happen, but it's going to be a great ride. I will keep you posted here and will keep you updated on anything that I need from you (pictures, email adresses, etc...)
