Well, I was not expecting to get Greenlit this early, but we broke the top 100 (now at 95/100), which is the point where Valve takes a serious look at your game, typically.  We hit this mark relatively early, and still have a ways to go before the next batch of games is evaluated.  In the chance that we do not get Greenlit in this batch, we probably will in the next (i.e. if 75 games get Greenlit, I move up 75 spots in the queue.  The top 50 games almost always get Greenlit at this point, but that is always open to evaluation).

First of all, thank you all the fans for your kind words and support up to this point (and even your "constructive" criticism ;) ).  I have been getting many emails from all over the world, people offering music, art, modeling, localization, funding, and more (don't worry - I am planning to keep this company privately owned).  Somebody even said that I "was an inspiration to computer scientists everywhere" which was truly moving to me.  I was kicked out of the computer science program in the first college I went to (due to poor grades one quarter), and the dean said that computer science was probably not for me (yeah, I know, first world problems).  As cliché as it sounds, never let anyone tell you what you can and can't do.  "Impossible" is word that history has proven wrong thousands of times over.

All of that said, I have barely tackled many of the difficult tasks to come.  I have never encountered an impossible problem in code, but I frequently have to determine what sacrifices I want to make if I want something to work well/easily.

Right now I am working on implementing characters, AI, and interactions.  I have decided to hold off on the Kickstarter campaign until at least June so that I can at least get the beginnings of these things in.

Until then, back to work! I'll post screenshots as soon as anything of interest comes to fruition.

Looks really nice! I'm working on an isometric game as well, totally unrelated to yours except for the graphical angle. Any chance of licensing your technology?

Yeah, public alpha access will begin in September of this year, at which point I hope to roll out code access as well. You pay nothing to license, but your users must have a Voxel Quest game key to run your game or mod (like Valve's Source licensing, kind of). Alternate licensing deals may be worked out, but that is undecided at this point.

@Jonathan_Blow Why not use a separate build folder for each OS, and an extra folder for common source / resources?

Jul 22 2014, 11:59pm

@Fireproof_Barry yep that is true as well. If I were Israel Id get out of there; they've been exiled 8 times already they can handle it :)

@Fireproof_Barry Also, in war, doesnt matter who is "winning", both sides are ultimately loosers in the long run.

Jul 22 2014, 9:15pm

@Fireproof_Barry I agree. Both sides should cease fire so that casualties can stop.

Jul 22 2014, 9:14pm

@Fireproof_Barry @tha_rami @emanuelmaiberg If they didnt care about hitting civilians, theyd launch 10,000 rockets - proof by negation?

Jul 22 2014, 9:10pm

@tha_rami @emanuelmaiberg Not to trivialize the deaths; I think every life is important. Just talking about Israel's intentions

Jul 22 2014, 9:06pm

@tha_rami @emanuelmaiberg If Israel wanted to attack, it would inflict much more than 500 deaths- which, btw, is nothing in the scope of war
