It has been awhile since the last progress report, but I have some good news for you all. The first release of AoA is coming this month! I can't give a specific date yet. The first release still has a lot of things missing or not done in it, but it will be very playable. In the following months after the release, updates will be released that will further develop the game. It will be an ever continuing process that will keep your game growing weekly or monthly.
To hold you over until the release, I have posted 9 new screenshots. Remember to visit the forums and post your comments, questions, and suggestions. Happy holidays!
