Yeah, so I wanted this out on Christmas. It was supposed to be the big surprise, the awesome gift nobody was expecting. Grumble grumble. Turns out that even though the beta had started about a week before the big day, there were a *ton* of issues with the hacking that made the game explode in all sorts of creative ways. This is largely due to the way the game was put together in the first place (sloppily.)

But I think we´re finally nearing the end! One of the testers finished up not too long ago, and I think we´ve finally resolved the last of the crashes and cosmetic bugs. I think. No guarantees, but I´m expecting to be able to release this fairly soon.

To showcase some of the rather extensive hacking that´s gone into this, I´ve put together a little before-and-after article on the project. It will be forever immortalized in the game´s Extras section, so please peruse it! There are about thirty new screenshots on the project page, too.

Also, here's a youtube video of the game in action.
