There is currently a great writeup by one of the developers of The Hero of Allacrost on one of the subjects that I get all the time as the main developer of Hardwar. I really suggest people go read it because I think it’s very insightful for users that always ask if we’re done yet or near release.
Resource wise we could really use more contributors from programmers. That would really push the development speed up. Currently it’s only me on the programming side hence the slow pace of development.
Personally I am fine with this as it’s my hobby. I gain enjoyment from developing this game so lack of progress doesn’t leave me demotivated. I know there are others out there waiting for this to be released. All I can really suggest is getting more involved so that we can speed up the pace and get stuff out the door.
