The Almost Beta (But Not Quite) Milestone!
So we did it… We blundered it all up and everything is broken. Babies are crying, I lost my glasses, and we’re fairly certain that everything is as bad as they say it is… Except, not really!
We’ve decided to push back calling the game’s current state a “Beta” and keep it in the Alpha phase, at least for now. But fear not! We are still opening up the game to all our Beta backers, and the game will be available for purchase again. Most of the systems we wanted to implement are ready to go online, and we’ve had a chance to refine many things for this next major milestone. *high fives all around*
Starting out, we managed to raise a bit of capital to help us build the core of many of our systems without worrying about our doors closing. The best part about those deals is that they were structured in a way that allowed us, the developers, to retain control of the project going forward. We are now entering a new phase of development, which will require the help of you, our community, to get the word out about what we are doing, and to help expand and build our community. We need your help, but we don’t want you to help just for sake of helping. We want the game to be something you can all be proud of--something you feel inclined to share for that reason.
