When we first embarked on this project, a colleague commented that it was amazing how the passion and vision had drawn an incredible list of guests to the table. Right, I thought, now we just need to serve up the feast.
Well, as anyone who has hosted a great dinner party knows, it requires financial and logistical resources, time, and teamwork. It takes a lot of behind-the-scenes planning, preparation and elbow grease to make it all seem effortless and breezy. And, since you have been following our progress, you know that preparation for this particular feast has involved many twists and turns and a few changes of menu that have felt anything but breezy. But with the new tack and the steadfast attention of Tony and Nathan, we are happy to issue the following report from the kitchen:
The main dish is almost finished cooking and ready for consumption. The instruction is in place and Tony is garnishing it now. The Art is in the final stage with a new artist stepping in to get us to the finish. And, Tony and Nathan have come up with such a fun game for the X lab section that some people have suggested it for release on its own.
We wanted to close here with some game art, and a toast to you. Your emails of encouragement and patience during our travails have given us great faith in humanity. We look forward to cheering all of you properly with a release this summer.
Andrea, Tony, and Nathan
