Hey Everyone -
Apologies for the delayed update - Ash had to hibernate for few weeks or so to recover from both Gamescom and PAX Prime :P
Randis, Nick, Sem, Mark and Aaron have been working almost non-stop adding content, optimizing layouts, fixing bugs, and getting DFS ready for internal BETA testing. Once we feel confident that the game is in a good state of polish and fun we’ll then commence our Closed BETA! We do not have any dates as of yet but please stay tuned. We are working as hard as we can to get DFS ready.

As we push to commence the beginning stages of Dragon Fin Soup BETA, so must the SlackerBacker Campaign come to a close. :(
