Update #17

News and some financial information

Now, after two weeks hold of Amazon account we initiated withdraw of funds in the amount of $75047 after all the fees and failed payments. 33 backers despite trying very hard couldn’t complete their payments and as a result, our total Kickstatrer amount is not $83547 but $82823 ($754 less). Some of the backers who couldn’t complete their payment, pledged through Paypal and we thank them very much for that. Paypal currently has $457, Yandex $80. We plan to keep Paypal and Yandex open until our beta test. By the way, we redesigned our page for Paypal and Yandex pledges: http://aterdux.com/pre-order (http://aterdux.com/ru/pre-order Russian version - this one has a widget displaying total amount for Yandex money).

Regarding work on Discord Times
We are finishing at the moment updating text translations. Also, Map Editor is ready and we are working on the manual.

Legends of Eisenwald schedule
While we didn’t stop working on our project during our campaign here, it still influenced our schedule – we had to do things that were not on the schedule and we had to postpone some that were. Our schedule didn’t fall back as far as a month fortunately but it did add at least two weeks. Regardless, we still aim to do beta test in July and release in October.

Hiring
This week we will interview several people for 2D interface design to work on stretch goal number 1 – making Victor focus solely on writing and scenarios. We are looking for one or two local outsourcers (it always helps to be able to meet and discuss things in person) and currently there are three people who are interested in this job.

      I don't know whether it will be a linux-alpha/beta at some point, but if I don't loose that by beta-testing the windows-version I will try to buy a new computer before beta is out in order to help you out. Don't get me wrong, I need a new computer anyway , but I don't need it before August.

      A forum is great. At this point it's probably the number one thing to wait for.
