It's been a little over 3 weeks since I last posted on here.
Unfortunately this project has been getting me down, when I started work on it back in February 2013, I had no idea I would still be here, 20 months later, and not even have an alpha ready for people. Because of this, I have taken the decision to stop work on the game, and release the source code to the public. I can't handle a project this big, but maybe someone else can pick up where I left off.
The source code is available via a "Pay What You Want" system on itch.io. I've commented part of the code to make it easier to understand what the variables mean etc.
The game was programmed in Game Maker Studio, hence you'll need Game Maker installed, and a pretty decent knowledge of GML in order to be able to understand all the code.
If you're interested in learning GML, or want to carry on the project, head on over to itch.io now and get the source code.
I've put a suggested price of £1.99 on the download, as it would be nice to get some return on all this work, but if you don't have the money to spare or don't think the code is worth it, you can just click the link to skip past the payment page.
Thanks for the feedback and encouragement guys, sorry I couldn't finish this project for you, but take this as a gift from me.
