Tried the download from your site, and the account creation failed. Is this game still supported online?

Nevermind, today it worked. Shame this game isn't going to get finished, it's a lot of fun.

Interesting but tragic... perhaps the Desura alpha-funding program would have helped (then the Linux beta could have been posted up for us to test out), and Aren may have gotten something out of the project.

Edit: D'oh! Moron me, here, didn't notice it *is* in Alpha funding... sorry Aren! :-(

I just played the web demo, but it was quite a lot of fun. Very visually appealing, and looks like it has a lot of replayability due to customization.
