March Dev log and First Backer Release Date
We made three short videos as part of our dev log to show some of the functionality we've added over the last few months.

First Backer Release
Also, we are excited to announce that we'll be making the first Windows backer release of Other World Mapper March 18th. We are calling this release Beta 3, though most of the existing functionality is working well and the bugs found in Beta 2 are fixed. Beta 3 will encompass the base Kickstarter goal plus a large portion of stretch goals and functionality we added during development from Alpha and Beta backer's very valuable feedback.
We will continue adding content from the stretch goals with monthly or bimonthly updates, as well as improving functionality based on your feedback as we did during the alpha and early beta phases.
On March 18th we'll make the Alpha/Beta forum section open to all backers and we'll start sending out emails with download info. The emails will be staggered to avoid getting on the bad side of spam filters, so please allow a day or two before contacting us if you do not receive your download info email by our release date. Please note Mac and Linux users will also receive a download link in case they have access to a Windows computer that they want to run Other World Mapper on. When the first stable Mac beta release is out we'll make the download link available to you.
Finally, we'll be sending out backer surveys for the purpose of asking if you want to be mentioned in the program credits. We want to make sure we list you the way you want to be listed, and omit you if you'd rather not be listed.
If you don't fill the backer survey by the time we make the release, don't worry. We'll add your name in later updates as we receive more backer survey responses.
