So, it's almost 4 years since the start of this project. Not much has actually changed except instead of looking forward to going to University in a year's time, I'm now looking forward to leaving it in a few months.
The latest on the project is that I don't have access to a decent computer outside my University, which has made work almost impossible. That, and workload from University; I was aiming to have another release shortly after the previous one, but that just hasn't been possible. Also, I am no longer entertaining an interest in the games industry, as I was when I began the project.
However, I am still working and I hope to get a final release out soon, as well as release as much of the source files as I can. I'm also planning on releasing the textures that I have made for the project in plain JPEG form for people to use for whatever projects they want (indie game development, custom maps for other games, that sort of thing.)
For the latest news the forums are always the best place to check, I post there more often than I do here.
