January 2013 Development Video

Submitted by Roots on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 07:24

We have something special to share to get the new year started right. Below you'll find a link to our very first development video. This video demonstrates the current state of the game and includes commentary that discusses our designs. This is a great way to check out the project without requiring you to build the game yourself. We hope that you enjoy it, and will leave us any feedback you have by either commenting on the video itself or leaving your remarks on our forums. We will release more videos like this in the future as a way to keep the community updated on our progress.


Our next immediate order of business is to publish a new development release, so that you can experience the game for yourself as it is presented in this video. We hope to get that release out by the end of this month, if not sooner. We also now have an updated roadmap so you can get a picture of what it is that we need to finish and what we are currently working on.

With our online services cleaned up and restored, project files reorganized, and numerous features that have been backported from Valyria Tear, I'm happy to report that the revival of this project is now complete. Thus, we are now ready to begin working with a full development team again, and we'll spend the next couple of weeks hunting down artists, programmers, and others to help us work on our next release. If you are interested in helping out, please read the following page on our wiki to find out how you can get started. We especially need artists and game designers (who make maps and manage game content) to join our team. Our release is, for the most part, feature-complete and is only missing the appropriate content to bring it all together.
