- Next, we won an honorable mention in IndieDB's Indie of the Year contest, in the players' choice category for the Best Upcoming Indie. We'd like to send out a big thanks to all our fans and say: Just wait for what's in store for 2011!
- Last but not least, we've achieved over 34% in our fundraiser to sponsor one month's work of programming 0 A.D. Thanks! We're glad so many people believe in the vision that is 0 A.D. and agree that some full-time work can really expedite things. Please pitch in if you can spare a few!
