      Cheers.
      Good luck with the boring bug squashing!

    2. Creator Sortasoft LLC on December 3

      Britta: we don't have an exact release date yet, but the end is finally in sight. It won't be ready before Christmas though, sorry!

      CurriedCat: I'm working on a new update right now, so keep your eyes open for it. In general, we are tying up loose ends, polishing the game, and working on minor technical issues that weren't enough bang for the buck up until this point. We also just updated to the latest version of Unity and had to resolve some issues with that. Most of this is the unexciting part which is why our updates have been a little slower, but it has to get done.

    3. Creator CurriedCat on December 2

      How are things progressing? Looking forward to this.

    4. Creator Britta Carlson on November 29

      Any new updates on a release date? I think this would be really great to give my dad for Christmas=]

    5. Creator baalim on November 4

      Thank you. I did miss the update. ;)

    6. Creator Sortasoft LLC on October 30

      Baalim: we sent an update earlier this month. I know some backers aren't receiving the updates, but you can read them in the updates tab. Starting Monday we are going to slowly start rolling out early builds to our Beta backers, starting with the upper tiers. I don't have a good estimate for final release yet though.

    7. Creator baalim on October 30

      It's been a while since the last update. Any new estimation about a release date ?

    8. Creator Ronald Pike on October 13

      Hi, how about a progress report? thanks!

    9. Creator Dawn_ on September 1, 2014

      hm, you said the exact same thing one year ago to D.M.."D.M., we're running a little bit past schedule, but not too bad. Our plan right now is to have Beta in November, and be finished with the game at the very beginning of 2014."

      I wouldn't make any plan or announcement, if i were you. Your estimation seems to be way off :p

    10. Creator PegasusOrgans-Graywalkers VIP on August 12, 2014

      No problem! Wish you all the best, can't wait!

    11. Creator Sortasoft LLC on July 31, 2014

      Pegasus, we're planning to release this fall to y'all, but will probably continue polishing the game before we start selling it to the public. Thanks to you and everybody for your patience!

    12. Creator PegasusOrgans-Graywalkers VIP on July 31, 2014

      You're lucky you don't have the backers from "War for the Overworld" as they keep complaining about no concrete release date. BTW, what is the rough estimate for Meriwether?

    13. Creator Sortasoft LLC on May 23, 2014

      @TheEvolutionary actually we did post updates in both March and April. Let me know if you can't see them. We're working on another one right now about our procedural terrain generation as well as our general progress. I plan to have it posted next week.

    14. Creator The Evolutionary on May 23, 2014

      3 months since an update. Where are we?

    15. Creator D.M. - O.U.T. In Deep Space on February 11, 2014

      That was fast! Thanks!
      I won!

    16. Creator Sortasoft LLC on February 11, 2014

      D.M. We're using Unity as our engine, which requires Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.5 (or later.)

    17. Creator D.M. - O.U.T. In Deep Space on February 11, 2014

      Josh,
      Can you be more specific regarding your OS requirements? I see that you'll be coming out on Mac, Windows, and Linux, but which versions will be likely the minimum required version?
      I fear I'm falling behind. :)

    18. Creator Sortasoft LLC on January 5, 2014

      Hi Dean, happy new year! We're working on the next update right now actually. It should be live tomorrow.

    19. Creator Dean L on January 5, 2014

      Hey Guys, hope your holidays and New Year were great. Looking forward to the next update, it has been a while.

    20. Creator ☜☆RSF☆☞ on November 7, 2013

    21. Creator Sortasoft LLC on September 23, 2013

      D.M., we're running a little bit past schedule, but not too bad. Our plan right now is to have Beta in November, and be finished with the game at the very beginning of 2014. We'll continue to keep everyone posted about our estimated release in the updates too.

    22. Creator D.M. - O.U.T. In Deep Space on September 23, 2013

      Out of curiosity how close do you think you will get to your estimated delivery of Nov 2013?

      Hi Rees! Yup, Barb and I are at a conference this week (the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation) and when we return we will report on the conference as well as our progress on the game. Our plan is to send an update about once a month.

    25. Creator Rees Maxwell on July 30, 2013

      Hey Joshua, It's been almost a month since the last update. Any chance you'll be sending out a new update soon? Would love to know what's been happening!

    26. Creator Sortasoft LLC on May 6, 2013

      Jon, nothing official yet, but there is still a chance! We really want to include the nightmare content too and are looking for alternative ways to fund it without delaying the core game. Also, we will have a new update for y'all any day now, we're just waiting for approval for use of some images.

    27. Creator Jon Uzel on May 5, 2013

      So, having not seen anything along these lines, is there still a chance either in the main game or DLC for the nightmare? Of course, I know where your priorities need to lie right now, but I so want those Welsh speaking Indians to guide me.

    28. Creator Sortasoft LLC on April 23, 2013

      Hey Light, thanks for checking in! We are posting an update next week about our trip to NY historical society, as well as our progress on the game design, art, and music. Our plan is to continue to update about once a month.

    29. Creator light487 - Kickstarter Junkie on April 23, 2013

      Heyas.. long time no see..... was just checking in to see how the development is going but there has been no news since PAXEast. I checked the main website and it hasn't been updated either. Can we please have an update on how things are progressing? Thanks.

    30. Creator Aaron Babcock on March 25, 2013

      Just got back from PAXEast where I checked out the build you had setup in the KickStarter area; so just wanted to drop in and say I like what I see so far, so keep the good work going!

    31. Creator zak on January 13, 2013

      It is kind of slightly weird going to your webpage (that link below) and not finding a forum. Still after a few days getting over that, i know that running a forum can be a full time job of itself. And looking at how busy this page is overall, i think maybe we might manage as is?

      Seeing that most of your effort is now fully on making the game, of which you have the design aspects all pretty much set down, it may be best for you (and us backers!) if you just focused on that effort? That's just my gut feeling on the issue, i'm a frequent forum user in general, but this project is a little different etc? Others chime in to tell me if i'm completely wrong, as i don't speak for anyone but myself!

    32. Creator Sortasoft LLC on January 10, 2013

      We don't have a forum now, but would be willing to set one up if there's enough interest. Let me know here, or via a message, if you want one.

    33. Creator light487 - Kickstarter Junkie on January 10, 2013

      Yes, I was about to ask the same question: Will there be a forum that we can all hang out on and pose questions and all that stuff that is usually done on forums? The comments section here is fine for "chatting" but as there is little structure, things get lost quite quickly..

    34. Creator Benjamin Penney on January 8, 2013

      Is there a Sortasoft forum we can all hang out on?

    35. Creator Sortasoft LLC on January 7, 2013

      Thanks for all the great support everyone! We set up a page to allow PayPal donations for anyone that missed the Kickstarter.

    36. Creator GhanBuriGhan - WOOS Wose on January 7, 2013

      Missed the final countdown, but great to see this got funded and a stretch goal achieved. Best of luck for the remaining development time! I'm looking forward to playing the game whenever it is ready.

    37. Creator D.M. - O.U.T. In Deep Space on January 7, 2013

      @S.D Thanks for the up date.

    38. Creator D.M. - O.U.T. In Deep Space on January 7, 2013

      YAY!!!
      Now go make that game!

    39. Creator SantanzChild Lil' Devil of the OO on January 7, 2013

      Good for y'all. This really took off in the last few days.

    40. Creator gandalf.nho on January 7, 2013

      Congrats for the funding!

    41. Creator Jörn Huxhorn on January 7, 2013

      @S.D.
      That was what I was looking for, thanks!
      Didn't find @joshdebonis since the account isn't linked anywhere. A game-specific account wouldn't hurt, though.

    42. Creator Jörn Huxhorn on January 7, 2013

      Congrats on getting funded!
      Huh? We get the Arcade Mode anyway? Awesome! <3

    43. Creator ☜☆RSF☆☞ on January 7, 2013

      Wow nice result! Well done everyone!

    44. Creator light487 - Kickstarter Junkie on January 7, 2013

      Good stuff! Not quite 45k but certainly a good result in any case..

    45. Creator Rees Maxwell on January 7, 2013

      Congrats Joshua! Ya done a good job with this project! Can't wait to see (and play) the final version when it ships!

    46. Creator S.D. on January 7, 2013

      Haha, Good Guy Kyle just committed to the $45K stretch goal on the livestream, since we got so close :-D

    47. Creator Jason Broadley on January 6, 2013

      Wow, look at it go... we might hit $45k!

    48. Creator Benjamin Penney on January 6, 2013

      @light487 [Backer of Axis Game Factory]: I stand corrected. With *significantly more* voice work, I mean. From what I understand of "very minimal", we're talking practically nothing at the moment, but I'm willing to be surprised.
