I know you've all been waiting far too long for an update, and we at RDG and I personally feel awful about the delay, so please accept our apologies for that.
As you may know, RDG is made up of three people. Last July, our update mentioned family emergencies. Two of the three RDG members' mothers were admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with advanced cancer in the same week. Bret's mother passed away a few months later. I was caught in a round of layoffs from my day job in early 2015 and have been caretaking ever since, and we've just found out my mother only has a few months left. The reason you're getting this update now and not sooner is simply that my mother only recently lost the ability to read her emails, and since she backed the project, I didn't want her seeing an update like this and feeling guilt over her health impacting ZoA, which I know she would have.
In the next few weeks I will be doing my best to catch up with missed KS messages, emails, FB messages, and past orders and resuming work on the game. I personally feel an extreme amount of shame that we're so far behind, but please understand we have not abandoned or given up on ZoA or our backers, and will be getting things rolling again as soon as we're able.
