As we prepare for our summer release, the team is madly running around trying to finish stuff up. Given the recent outburst of forum posts about the game’s progress, here’s a quick summary of the work that’s left to do.

Purchase a few licenses, finalize trademark.
Coding: 92% done
Many bug fixes, nicer projectiles, better software and D3D compatibility, record game, server performance, tutorial/help.

This will continue to evolve, but is essentially good enough as it is.

Update screenshots section, add a new introduction or other cinematic piece, potential facelift.
If you notice a lack of updates or screenshots, this is the reason. Please be patient as the team buckles down and tries to finish making the game you always wanted to play…
