Dear friends,

first of all, we are terribly sorry for the lack of updates, and we feel that we owe you an explanation. Early in 2012, we had a very promising perspective on getting a "foot in the door" to achieve both funding and technical support for this game. Unfortunately, these plans did not work out, so we found ourselves back to square one and more or less had to start thinking and planning it all over again.

By now, the situation has improved a little, as there are alternative solutions taking shape. In the past months, we have been working on:

- code

- character models

- levels

- props

- animations

- music, and

- sound.

We're also very happy to announce that two new members have joined our team: Jamie Keen, a sound designer from the UK, and Patrick Hödl, a prop/texture artist from Austria.

You can see some of his work above, as he is the creator of the streamline locomotives shown in the newspaper.

For the next weeks, we hope to achieve another set of milestones in the development of Zeitgeist; we can't make any promises, but there is reason to believe that we can finish this project succesfully after all.

Thanks to all of you for your support and patience,

the Zeitgeist staff

Dear friends and watchers,

don't untrack "Zeitgeist" just yet.

You all are absolutely right in being disappointed about the way we dealt with the lack of updates, especially on the hibernation that Zeitgeist has been in for more than two years.

Most of all, it was a guilty feeling and indiscribable amounts of frustration that kept us from stating the facts and being more straightforward about the steps we tried to take in order to get this project back on track.

But - don't give up on us just yet. None of you will die a sudden death or suffer other horrible consequences if you stick with us for a little longer, so please - do.

The Devs should either post a notice that the project is dead or give us an update on what has been taking so long.

If the project is dead then they should host the project files on github for someone else to take over.
