Understatement much? It has indeed been nearly 7 months since the last blog update (though not the game update!). We lost two members of our team due to poor work ethic, which ironically led yours truly to work less. Coupled with the fact that I now have essentially no game testers until the official Beta (or public) release, and there's all the reason I needed to justify not updating this page.
Obviously, that ends today. I know I've said this before, but we're definitely, positively, absolutely about ready for Beta release. All of the elements are in place. There's just the matter of plugging in the massive (to me) amounts of dialog, and doing the final game balance tweaks so it's not too fast or slow. Given that I have literally nothing else to do all day long, these shouldn't take but a week or two at most.
SO...expect an update saying that I sent off the game for approval on Kongregate.com VERY shortly. And thank you to anyone who actually ever reads these. XD
