Good morning!

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season. Nothing like a bit of frostbite, hideous mucus-inducing diseases, dealing with British trains and some relentless, soul-destroying consumerism to usher in the New Year.

Unlike the poor folks at Born Ready and Hello Games, I didn't get washed away in the floods last week. That said, I am currently surrounded by rising flood waters and have already lost a crate of very important development supplies (beer) to the murky depths. Should I survive the forced sobriety (unlikely), development will go on unhindered.

The printers have finally accepted the poster formats and I should be receiving the proofs and final prints soon. Due to there being no access to my new island (henceforth known as Simondia), this may be slightly delayed. I will keep you posted.

Buy wellies while the sun shines.

If you haven’t been keeping pace with development, things are going well. I finally found the source of the colonists getting stuck and not doing their work. They were actually colliding with their own heads. And let's never speak of that again.

I made this video of 0.39 before the break. It shows some of the features in this version and I'm a lot less mumbly than the last one!

I'm currently ramping development up again and should have 0.40 out by mid next week, on all three platforms.

As ever, drop me an email if you have any questions or problems.

      I feel relieved, I have now recieved the value for my pledge. That bug alone was worth it all. In fact I may need to increase my pledge as a result. Having spent countless hours myself mulling over code that seriously made my day. ^^
