Not you, unfortunately -- just the Acutians.  But you can certainly give them a nudge into wanting to do something like that. :)

These are the robots, right? Yeah, I will encourage them to wreck the place.

Oh yes, they are the corporate robot CEO jerks that you've already described an affinity for. :)

I quite like them too, to be honest. :D

Yes indeed!  I hope to do a combat video later this week, as the visuals for the GUI are being finished up in terms of being coded in probably by the end of tomorrow.  All of the special effects won't be there yet for combat, but it already looks pretty darn sweet and we can't wait forever to show this, heh.

In terms of a written informational, I probably will do one of those as well.  We are also working on the intro video for the game -- a first for us -- which has the background story that sets the scene.  We'll be releasing that when that gets done, too, probably early next week.

We are expecting to get to alpha mid-next-week, but that depends on how the last of the GUI design/implementation work goes this week, and my own ongoing nitpicking from playtesting.

We're hitting a really exciting period for the game, though, for sure. :D

Happy New Year everyone.

This is the Year of The Last Federation, a game which will define a genre for the three-five years of gaming? Perhaps!

No pressure.  :D
