A great character modeller, CyborgGuineaPig, has recently joined our team, and is proving to be quite good. We'll have some new renders up VERY soon, don't worry.
Also, unfortunately the plot is still under fairly heavy development. We've gone through a number of ideas, settings, and themes and such. However, we are indeed slowly building the game's plot, and should be done a good portion of it within the next few weeks. Not that you people are going to be reading any of it :)
Just keeping you informed. We're not dead, nor do we intend on dying anytime soon.
