Hey everyone, I figure it's about time for another update just so you know we're still hard at work on the game. :)

~The Client/Server~
The mini-map now shows other players, NPC's and of course yourself. I have added a regional weather system which means that it will snow on the mountains, rain on the grassy areas and... be sandy in the desert. :) I'm going to be adding zelda/pokemon style movable blocks as well as NPC spawn points in this version. I fixed some of the transparency problems on a few of the tilesets as well.

~Mapping~
The world map is pretty much complete, all that is left is to go through it all and add the blocks and touch it up where it needs to be touched up. Right now, storm is working on an immense cave system that will be fun to play in while Nal is working on finishing the world map. ;)

~Story~
Pontifus has almost finished writing all the quests and I will be adding the quest system into the game soon.

~Overall~
The game is moving along swiftly and release is getting sooner and sooner. I am still not going to set a date because I don't want to let people down who are expecting it. When I set a date for release, it will be released on that day, that I can promise. All I will say for now is that it will be out this Summer for sure 100%. :) I will post some cool things we have been working on once the world map is finished to let you see some of the things that we've been doing. That's all for now I think.

Have a good day everyone!
~Drackir

Maybe...depends what you consider a step. :P

For instance, I add multiple features into one update. So technically I take big steps there. Also, I confuse myself by coding multiple features at the same time (aka before one or the other is finished) which could count as a big dumb step. :P

Speaking of having a product before you franchise it...
Give us anything! Anything at all! Anything we can touch. The most exciting part about playing a new game is exploring the terrain and discovering things, as well as talking to other people who are doing the same.
Then we can take note of your progress and praise/blame you for it!!

Right now we are all floating somewhere in that sustained limbo that is anticipation. Hold it for too long and it's all gone.

sum day ill eat ur cat ricko...

@Casey: I will be releasing something cool soon for you guys to play with but for now just go play on our frapper :P

@Nal: Next version will be linux compatible but this version, with some help from WINE may be able to be played in linux. Just requires a bit of setup. Hehe.

Copyright? Nah, I'm not a big of them... but lets not get into that.

Wtf is a frapper? Wait i'll have to google it.

And yes please anything, as Casey said anything would be nice, even a really rough aplha, just a selective release to your most loyal forum spammers, sorry i mean posters :P
