We are currently working towards getting a pre-alpha for release. Our log in system is in full development so you will be able to sign up and start redeeming bundle keys, wallpapers, and eventually alphas very soon. We are expecting that to be live in about two weeks, and pre-alpha builds downloadable in early February.
The start of the year has thrown up a lot of challenges. We've been working towards the current milestone at a good rate, with lots of cool new content going in. I've also been coding a significant overhaul of my renderer. The game is starting to look quite smashing!
In other news, we are in negotiations to license audio middleware to help us deliver Nick's glorious music and sound effects. Currently I'm waiting for assurances that the Linux version of the system is up to scratch before going ahead with it. I'm hoping this won't delay development too much, but we all think it's worth it to make the game really come alive.
I'll be expanding the team this week with two more very talented developers who will be helping us get our characters animated and lifelike for the alpha. Exciting stuff!
The forums are the place to be for up to date info on development, and I'll be posting more updates on here too. Be sure to keep an eye on your inbox as I will be sending out more tier specific messages again this week.
Feel free to drop me an email any time!
