Redditing, hackering, and a couple new features
Hey everyone, now that we're at the one-week-left point, we're jumping back into the hot seat on Reddit, Hacker News, and other places. We've got a ways to go, but we know we can pull it off with your help!
If you're a redditor, upvote our post and stop by on Friday after 12PM CST, we will be doing an AmA! Our focus will be about being game developers and former web developers, but if you want to ask about Arnold and his immense fluffiness, we will do our best to respond.
If you're a hacker-newser, we've got a link to our latest blog post about using Ruby for our server, and we could use your vote there, too! Watch out for Node.js fanboys, they might be out in force (we *may* have ranted about it a little...)
Finally, we just finished in-game character customization... and mountains!
Once again, thank you for your generous support, and let's get this thing done!
