Bought this game back in 2012. Any updates?

Long story short, we put most of our focus on building a moddable multiplayer voxel engine *for* a game, but the funds available aren't enough to complete what was, well, a grotesquely expensive concept for a game that so far still hasn't been made. (Star Citizen, No Man's Land, Space Engineers, etc).

The team (/family) has been a bit exhausted and is currently recuperating. Some hindsight and time away from the project is making it easier to let go some hang-ups on 'what WE wanted', 'what OTHERS wanted' and cut to the chase on what makes a good game a good game.  In particular, a good game, made on the shoestring budget.

If you don't mind, I'd like to PM you a few questions on where we're thinking of taking the game, and why.

Interesting, I didn't expect Aaron to be this responsive after this long. He usually needs my mauling medical expertise to awaken from his slumber.

Good to finally have some news, even if vague and cryptic. Hopefully we'll get a new updated roadmap and a surge of forum activity, I kinda miss the wild speculation on every possible details of the game, good old days...
With love.  ~MRC

Lol!  Subtitle checks out. ;D

I operate out of my phone *a lot* these days, and some reason I do not get notifications on some posts.  Can't wait for SMF 3.0!

For right now I'd like to ping people individually to get their thoughts one-on-one.  Mind if I email you too MRC? Email works much better on my end. :"D

Is it too late to get in on that email action?
