Y'know how a month or so ago I joked about being too busy in real life? Yeah, I should know better than to say stuff like that. I've had a shitstorm of work fall upon me, and I really haven't had time to do anything with the game. Mostly my own fault - I took a good look at where I'm at now & realized I could be happier, so I tried to change it. I took a couple of risks simultaneously, and if any of them had paid off I'd have more spare time for fun stuff (like this). Naturally none of it came together thou, so now I'm just buried in work.
Don't worry, I'm not dead, nor am I starving or hurt or anything like that. However, my plans to have more time to work on the game have backfired spectacularly. It would make a great story, if I had time to tell it. hahahahah Well, okay, maybe not great, but better than most reality TV anyway. =D
So that's where I'm at. Thank you for all the well-wishes I've been seeing in the comments. Rest assured, game is NOT dead, just on a long, long detour. Continue to expect delays, and I'll continue to keep y'all updated as I can.
