01. Release date announcement


Greetings everyone,

This is Dopefish coming to you with some exciting news! First of all, we now have a release date for the end of June 2011, 7 months from now. This release will be somewhat of a demo version of the game, featuring only the four basic elements, and one or two levels.

We're also planning on sending out test versions continuously to our followers, to get playtests and feedback from our most dedicated viewers. So be sure to start tracking us today!

I wish i could help contribute to this mod, but my skills are generally in the 3d modeling and concept art department. Altho i did get a degree in animation, I didn't really enjoy it. >_>
