I think what's irked me about the 10kb delay is all the hype and excitement about it and then zip as attention was focused on FC. I don't mean to be crude (well, this is about 10kb so maybe it won't be too out of line considering the game world, lol), but it's like a pr&%k tease with no follow through. I'd just like to see less hype unless it's a for product that's actually on the way.

As the guy who's literally been trying to get this game out for 8 years in its various forms, trust me - I understand. Fantasy Craft ultimately required resources that 10kB would have drained, hurting us even worse. Which is why we stopped talking about it - no point in continuing to torment those who want it. This fits the motif of the company for the last 18 months or so...we've simply come to understand our capacity and become more disciplined about building anticipation too early or when we know we can't give you the "happy ending" you're looking for  >:D

As a historical footnote, the only reason we've every leaked on 10kB was that 5 years ago, prior to Crafty, I had a publisher who was invested. Sadly, they ended up getting robbed by their distributor and had to shut their doors. Until that time, I was extremely disciplined about talking about the game referring to it only as Project X. But once Pandora was out of the box, there was nothing to do but quietly hope people forgot about it. Fortunately (and maybe a little unfortunately) for us, your collective fan minds are like steel traops and wouldn't let it go ;)

We couldn't agree more. Note the decided lack of promotion for anything that's not relatively imminent anymore - no matter how much folks ask. ;)

Nepenthe - I'm more of the Venkman, while Pat's the Stantz of the team. And the trap should be marked "10kB" ;D

That was the best I could do in the ~5 minutes my ADHD allowed for the project. ;)

So awesome. Too bad it won't scale down well or I'd have a new avatar. 'sokay, though... I think it's time to resurrect Mr. Mood Writer! He starts off happy but don't make him angry! You wouldn't like him when he's angry...

At least he's not bashing his brains out on his keyboard...

Let's hope it coincides with the onset of a major creative phase. :)
