well ok , it's been like this for awhile, but sadly it's dead in here same with any info. While I do understand there is a publisher at the reigns now. I am starting to think this title is going along the lines of vaporware. Nothing to insult, just saying.

Well it's rolling along. It seems that half of the website users are now in beta 3 so that might explain why the blue names have not published anything new. Although I do agree that some info published would be a good thing.

Hey, we are really sorry that we've been keeping everyone in the dark for the past couple weeks. The game is making excellent progress, as the beta testers can likely attest too, but we cannot release any new information until our publisher steps in, which should be any day now.

So long as we don't have to go publisher hunting to get some new news :)

Yeah, this whole quiet thing is really killing me as there's so much cool stuff being implemented that I just want to scream out like I've been doing for the past year. :p But just try and be more patient than me, and everything will be revealed soon enough.

So when will you be releasing the name of the publisher and why so hush hush?

Its far from vaporware. You could say this a year ago. But now the betas are moving quickly and things are pretty active under the covers. So just give it a wait, you'll get your info soon :)

Problem is all the active forums posters are in beta.

So they are all in their sub forum posting in the Beta section. (My best guess)

Yeah I see your point. I guess just figure that this is the transition time before the publisher begins publishing info.

Its a lie, the beta doesn't exist. Everyone is on vacation. They're serving punch and pie.:p

Krabs! You're not supposed to tell people that, that's why we have an NDA. Now everyone will want pie!

Yeah and it's reasonably tasty. I mean programmers or level designers aren't known for cooking skills but I was surprised.

When handing over reins of control of something to something there is a gap of time which nobody is able to do anything until the reins of that something is held and being controlled by the new entity.

MEDIA.

Simple explanations without any name calling is the solution here. No NDAs broken.

Good to hear guys, just saying as trying to help promote and share this title, there is really nothing to show at this point or discuss as this is the current sistuation. Well hopfully soon we will have something new to talk about. GL in beta and make it a game that gamers want to play! :)

Glad to hear things are still moving forward with this project! I've been checking up on this game off and on over the past year or so, both excited for its development and also a little concerned. Keep it going guys! :cool:

If we welcome new visitors, then moderation will as well, unless you want your modhammer taken away and replaced with... hmmmm... A Bokay of Flowers. lol :p

Why thank you kind si--- Oh wait I see what you did there >.>

I promise to be nice to new visitors, and not close thread before their questions have been answered even if there are other threads about that question. I will however tell them how to use the search function to bring up threads with similar answered questions.

However if there are new spam bots and spammers with fake signatures etc, I will inform and use my hammer promptly to stop them.

With regard to the publisher - I`m glad to say everything is settled, and a formal press-release should be expected with-in a couple of weeks. After that both the publisher, and Alex will start promoting the game again. And we expect things to pick up really fast - with A LOT more visitors, judging by our publisher`s track record - they can spread the word pretty fast:) I`m hoping for something like 1-2,000 new forumers before the end of the year.

That's good news:)

WE LOVE YOUUUUUUU

Oh and by the way.... I see what you did there... well trust me thats not his hammer... his p..... is the hammer.... lol :D I joke, have you seen Dr Horribles Singalong Blog, by anychance? If so, niec reference, if not then do so... :p


Also, I hope I count as one of those oldies that can band together! Although I remember numerous people who precede me in that department... Also I still need to apologise for not coming on lately. However I will continue to try returning now and then, I am intrigued by who this powerful publisher is...

Sorry for the absence folks- real life work took over. I am back and updating my site - I plan to make some noise about DoF, Picaroon and End of Nations. Hoping the noise of all brings folks running to the genre.

Congratz btw on the publisher deal - I know its a bit late but a fine achievement.

Videos take a lot of resources to produce and, considering Dawn of Fantasy has yet to be officially announced, there is little to gain from taking away development resources.

The site gallery was switched out a couple of times with new screenshots but, who knows, maybe that site will get completely redesigned soon. ;)

As for screenshots, we have the Screenshot of the Week and we are preparing a bundle of screenshots that will be released with the official announcement.

Some people are just inpatient and cant understand how hard you guys are working on this awsome game :) so keep it up and deliver us this game!

I've always found pre-launch sites to be a bit slow. The proof is in the pudding, in the end.
